Lake Placid The country’s premier figure skating production, Stars on Ice, is proud to announce the return of one of the sport’s most cherished athletes, Olympic Gold Medalist, World Champion and Three-Time U.S. National Champion, Dorothy Hamill.
One of the most beloved American sports icons, Hamill won the hearts of skating fans around the world with her dominant performance in taking Gold at the 1976 Winter Olympic Games in Innsbruck, Austria. Hamill is credited with developing a new skating move; a camel spin that turns into a sit spin, which became known as the "Hamill Camel." The bobbed hairstyle that she wore during her Olympic performance started a fad, and she quickly became "America's Sweetheart."
Joining a cast of Olympic, World and National Champion skaters on the 2012-13 Tour, Hamill will help bid a fond farewell to longtime cast member Kurt Browning, who will be giving his final U.S. tour performances. The Stars on Ice “Now & Then” Tour will kick-off with a special performance at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid on Sunday, Dec. 30, at 7:30 p.m.
The Emmy Award-winning production will be made into a one-hour syndicated television special, recording in Japan during a brief January tour. The special will be shown on network affiliates across the country this winter.

Special on-ice seating is available upon request. Group discounts are available for parties of 10 or more. Tickets start at $25 and are available via starsonice.com, by phone at 523-3330 and the Olympic Center Box Office.
