The Kettering Ice Arena is holding their spring ice show, A Glide Through Time, on May 4 and 5. This big show is full of local talent, as well as amazing costumes, props and scenery. A panel of judges selected four skaters to perform solos in the show – today, we continue our series introducing these skaters. Next up, meet Sarah!
