The Ayr Skating Club is proud to celebrate the tremendous success of two of our long standing members: Sonia Kagolovskaya & Kieran MacDonald

Sonia and Kieran are Ice Dancers. Ice dance is similar to pairs in that two people skate together, but, unlike pairs, ice dancers do not do jumps and do only certain kinds of lifts. Instead, ice dancers focus on creating footwork and body movements that express dance on ice. 

The pair have been skating together since she was seven and he was nine and are coached by Carleigh MacDonald.  You can read more about Sonia (Sophia) and Kieran on their Skate Ontario profile page.

After Nationals, Sonia and Kieran became part of a team of 14 skaters chosen by Skate Canada to represent Canada internationally at the 2019 Bavarian Open Advanced Novice Ice Dance Championships. The competition took place on Feb 5-10 in Oberstdorf, Germany.  Sonia and Kieran once again placed first!

Check out the pictures and videos below for a closer look at Sonia and Kieran's artistry in action.  Also, be sure to join us for for our 2019 Showcase Gala on Sun, Mar. 31 @ 1:30pm to see Sonia and Kieran perform live!
