The Show

The Show Ballet and Swivel | Adagio and Strap | Jumping | Barefooting | Pyramid | Stage

Ski Show Acts: The shows you see performed by the team are the result of years of experience and practice. We work virtually year-round. Preparation for a show to be performed in June actually begins in September of the prior year.

Planning includes: Selecting a show director and show committee Developing a show theme Writing and choreographing the show Selecting costumes, music, and dialog Casting the skiing and non-skiing roles Fine tuning the show.

Ski Show Acts: Show skiing combines components of all water ski disciplines. Water ski shows are an aquatic Broadway musical featuring multiple water ski acts choreographed to music and built around a theme. Unique to show skiing are ballet/swivel skiing, adagio or strap doubles, freestyle jumping and human pyramids. Ski show exhibitions and shows involve amateur clubs usually having 30 or more members, with some clubs having more than 200 members.

Age is not a factor as ski club performers can range from children to grandparents. Show skiing is a rich part of the sport’s history. Water skiers have been performing amateur and professional ski shows since the 1940s. In fact, in the 1950s, the most talented traditional competitors also were ski show professionals (from USA Water Ski).
