Professional Adagio Pair Skaters Fiona and Dmitry have had a long career on the ice. After years of exceptional skating achievements the pair decided to become Professional skaters and joined their first ice show 'Hot Ice Show' in Blackpool. By 1998 they represented Britain at the World Professional Championships and were awarded a title as professional pair medallists for GB.

From 1997 until 2007 they were cast in leading roles as principle skaters in no less than 9 Holiday on Ice productions in addition to performing for 3 years as an ice adagio act in the Casino Palace, Spain. By December 2007 Fiona and Dmitry established themselves as freelance skaters. They now perform their spectacular and usual lifts to audiences in exciting events and shows all over the world, as well as leading our skating team here at Ice Arena Wales.
