The Abu Dhabi Figure Skating Team received a unique opportunity to train with professional skaters when they were invited to attend a masterclass with cast members from Disney on Ice. Twenty skaters headed to Dubai for the 90 minute course, which included some invaluable tips and advice on technique. The skaters were also able to ask questions about how to become a professional skater and what the job entails.

Zahra Lari, the first figure skater to compete internationally in a hijab, was also invited to attend an additional session with the skaters on 8 September. She was given the opportunity to tour backstage, see costumes, speak one-on-one with the principals and observe a dress rehearsal.

ADFST will be back on their home ice this weekend for the "Get Your Skate Legs Back" camp and the team members are excited to show their newly learned skills off on the ice.
