Allen Event Center has been selected to host multiple U.S. Figure Skating events in 2019. The arena and its adjacent Allen Community Ice Rink will host the 2019 Inaugural Solo Dance Camp on February 16-17, and the 2020 Midwestern Sectional Singles Final and U.S. Pairs Final on November 12-16.
“We’re thrilled to have been chosen to host these wonderful events,” said Bill Herman, General Manager of Allen Event Center. “With two full-size sheets of ice and a staff that’s all about customer service, we’re confident that Allen Event Center will deliver a wonderful experience for athletes and fans alike.”
Sanctioned by U.S. Figure Skating and hosted by Dallas Figure Skating Club, the 2019 Inaugural Solo Dance Camp will take place over two days at Allen Event Center. Skaters will receive on-ice instruction from Olympic and world ice dancers including world-renowned ballroom dancer Serge Onik. Allen Event Center will continue to host the camp on an annual basis.
The 2020 Midwestern Sectional Singles Final and U.S. Pairs Final will showcase over 200 skaters vying for a coveted position in the U.S. Championships. The two events are estimated to generate more than $1 million in economic impact for the area.
“The U.S. Figure Skating Finals will have a direct impact on the local Allen economy with an estimated $1.2 million in visitor spending on hotels, dining, shopping and entertainment,” said Karen Cromwell, Director of the Allen Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We look forward to welcoming the competitors as well as their fans and families to Allen.”
