LOCAL SKATERS SET TO STAR INDISNEY ON ICE’SNEWEST SHOW
When Disney On Ices newest show entitledThe Wonderful World of Disney On Iceplays South Africa this winter holiday, audiences will be delighted to see local husband and wife performers, Johannesburg-born Konrad Giering and Pretoria-born Yolande Giering, skating within the company. The production will be at the TicketPro Dome in Johannesburg from Friday, 30 June until Sunday, 09 July 2017, then at the ICC Arena in Durban from Thursday, 13 to Sunday, 19 July, and at Grand Arena, GrandWest in Cape Town from Wednesday, 19 July to Sunday, 23 July 2017.
This young and highly talented couple have known each other since they were five years old and are excited to return to South Africa to skate in front of local audiences as well as their family and friends for the first time. Both Konrad and Yolande are proud to represent their country as part of theDisney On Icefamily, and aside from the excitement of performing at home, they are pleased their fellow skaters will have the chance to experience Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town firsthand.
Also an accomplished dancer, Yolande began skating at the age of seven years old and went on to achieve her Gold level test, Level 6 Skating Skills and Level 1 Coaching Test. Becoming a skater came about by accident when taking medical advice to correct a problem with her feet, but she enjoyed it so much, she made it her career! She encourages young skaters hoping to pursue a career in professional figure skating to follow their dreams. It is possible and so much fun. Work hard on your performance skills, thats most important.
Yolande joinedDisney On Icein 2009 and has performed in the USA, Canada and Asia. She says the best part of performing is seeing a full crowd enjoying a show. As well as being an avid watersport enthusiast, Yolande does yoga every other day and also runs.
Konrad started ice skating at just four years old and held the title of SA National Junior Champion from 2000-2004 and then again in 2007. Training at the Gauteng North Club in Pretoria, he then went on to represent the country at international competitions, including Four Continents and Junior Worlds. This rugby mad and qualified Fine Dining Chef who loves a good braai and spending time gardening, grew up in Benoni. Konrad explores his love of food by trying out new dishes when touring withDisney On Ice.Like Yolande, Konrad joinedDisney On Icein 2009 and he has since performed across every continent except Europe.
