FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Members of the Fort Wayne Ice Skating Club work tirelessly to find success in figure skating.

The dedication on the ice extends off the ice, as well, to ballet classes, special electronic spinner training and even at the Academic Conservatorium of Project Ballet, a school that allows them more time on the ice at the SportONE/Parkview Icehouse in the midst of their studies.

The hard work has paid of for several of the skaters, who regularly compete at national competitions, including the 2019 U.S. Figure Skating Championships this weekend in Detroit.
