Ice Stage

Tiffany Iskander ’16 may be at home on ice, but the champion figure skater still gets the chills.

Theatre on Ice is where you’ll find Tiffany Iskandar ’16 performing as part of Team USA—in a form of competitive figure skating that combines technical prowess with elements of theatre and dance to tell a story. Programs are judged by U.S. Figure Skating judges.

Iskandar is a founding member of San Francisco Ice Theatre, which has won three national titles. Last year the group competed in the world championships in France and came in sixth.

Her skating training regimen includes waking up at 3:45 a.m. on Saturdays. Add that to majors in accounting and economics. Off the ice, time management is key.

On it, her favorite part is when the team is in synch for the block step: “Twenty-five skaters on the ice doing the same exact thing at the same exact time. I always get chills.”
