World renowned ice dancers Tanith Belbin and Benjamin Agosto, who captured a silver medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, are the featured performers for Saturday's Sun Valley Ice Show.

Generally regarded as the best ice dancing team in the U.S., the duo also won the free dance bronze medal at the 2006 World Championships in Calgary, Canada.

By winning Olympic silver at the Torino, Italy games, Belbin and Agosto collected the first Olympic ice dancing medal won by the U.S. since Colleen O'Conner and Jim Millins collected the bronze at the 1976 games.

Canadian-born Belbin, 22, became a U.S. citizen in 2005, after special legislation was passed by Congress that allowed early citizenship to foreign born residents with extraordinary skills or abilities.

Agosto, 24, hails from Chicago.

Ticket information for the Belbin-Agosto Sun Valley Ice Show performance is available at www.sunvalley.com or at 622-2135.
