About

This is the website for the Fort Collins Figure Skating Club group, EPIC Productions.

We work with 15 – 30 skaters of Pre-Preliminary level and above from mid-January through July. We develop original choreographed numbers and build costumes, props, and scenery that emphasize artistic interpretation and theatricality. Qualified skaters (preliminary and above, placed top 4 in a USFS competition with an artistic or interpretive program in the previous 12 months) also compete with solos or duets.

The FCFSC’s EPIC Productions started attending the National Showcase competition in 2017. Its goal is to enhance the artistic and theatrical opportunities for FCFSC skaters and to take advantage of the incredible talent and experience the FCFSC coaches have in theatrical and artistic performance. EPIC Productions brings together skaters of all levels to compete against groups from across the country with a large production number and several smaller mini-ensembles.

A certified FCFSC coach serves as the Director, who oversees the program with the support of a certified Assistant Director and choreographers. Senior-level skaters provide support as managers, designers, and more. Two coaches travel with the group to the competition to oversee practice and events.

Parents and skaters interested in leadership roles participate in monthly meetings to coordinate logistics, develop costume and prop ideas, and organize events such as fundraising activities.

Competition Events

EPIC Productions develops one large group number that includes all skaters, and 3 to 5 mini-ensemble numbers with 3 to 7 skaters each. USFS does not permit skaters to be in more than one mini-ensemble. You can opt out of the mini-ensemble if desired, although program fees will not be adjusted. Team members support each other by attending group and individual/duet events, so the days are exciting but long!

Competition Registration

The FCFSC Showcase group registers your skater for the large group production and the mini-ensembles. Registration fees and processing fees are already included in your program fee.
