The Sun Valley Ice Show starts hitting its summer stride Saturday, July 16 with the third of 10 summer shows starting at dusk. Headliner Saturday is Evan Lysacek, 26, the 2010 Olympic gold medalist and 2007-08 U.S. national champ. Audiences will also marvel at the skills of Irina Grigorian, whose expertise includes juggling and whirling hula hoops. Grigorian is shown here during a recent Saturday practice session. She toured many years with the Ice Capades and has created an act that is truly circus art on ice. “Most people don’t expect hula hoops when they come to an ice show. But Irina is beautiful, slender and talented, and she brings something that we’re looking for in our novelty acts—something that’s different,” said ice show producer and Sun Valley Director of Recreation Lana Breazeale.
