"Missile Toes," Olympic World and Local Skating Stars plus Musical Entertainers Create Traditional "Holiday Sparkle and Excitement" throughout Galleria Dallas

"Missile Toes," Olympic World and Local Skating Stars plus Musical Entertainers Create Traditional "Holiday Sparkle and Excitement" throughout Galleria Dallas (Forimmediaterelease.net) The first Galleria Dallas Thanksgiving weekend ice show was 25 years ago. Who was the featured star? Former Olympic and world super-star Dorothy Hamill performed her amazing spins for thousands of guests. Dorothy may not have realized it at the time, but she launched a tradition.

Annually since 1982, the center has created an exciting holiday celebration that has become a tradition for thousands of families from Texas, throughout the U.S., Mexico, Canada and around the world. As the years progressed, the sparkly Christmas tree “grew” into the country’s tallest indoor tree with state-of-the art lighting synchronized to Galleria Dallas holiday music.

“Missile Toes,” Galleria’s own ice skating Santa Claus who performs back flips and other stunts while shooting fireworks off his skates, joined Galleria’s holiday festivities approximately a decade ago. Now, during his annual visits, “Missile Toes” delights young and old as he skates around the tree during a specially choreographed ice show that culminates as he and the audience count down to the lighting of the magnificent tree.

On Thanksgiving weekend, November 23 at noon&November 24 at 5:00 p.m., Galleria Dallas once again features Olympic and world figure skating legend Dorothy Hamill gliding, spinning and leaping around the famed tree.

During each holiday ice show, several local, future champion skaters including Grace Sells and partner Robert Cuthbertson will join Angela Maxwell, 2007 USA Novice Champion; Olympic and world champion Victor Petrenko; 2007 U.S. Junior Champion Marylin Cai; and Alyssa Cizsny, considered the world’s best spinner.

Also performing during each show are 75 students and drill team members of the Galleria Dallas Ice Skating Center presenting a number of “Toyland” presentations. Guests will smile at the Toy Soldiers, Harlequin Dolls, Candy Cane Dolls and much more. Additionally, show guests will enjoy a variety of performances from local amateur skaters ranging in ages from 3-18 who competed for the opportunity in a special competition.

Also on the weekends, guests will be captivated by the holiday mood as the beautiful atrium reverberates with the musical offerings of area professional musical entertainers. The popular Plano Civic Chorus performs during the noon show on Friday, November 23. Professional musical groups are scheduled to perform throughout the shopping center each weekend from Thanksgiving through Christmas.
