Erika Choi Smith and AJ Reiss Star in Ice Show
August 26, 2016 - Christie Sausa
It's the last show of the summer season on August 27th, and rounding out the summer of talented up and coming skaters and dazzling stars are the pairs team of Erika Choi Smith and AJ Reiss.
Local historians might recognize AJ's last name; he is related to the late Julian Reiss, best known for being one of the founders of the North Pole amusement park in Wilmington NY (home to Whiteface Mountain).
Reiss was last in Lake Placid with a previous partner in 2012, performing in the 2012 Junior Grand Prix. Now, after a few short months, the pair made it to the 2016 National Championships where they finished 6th.
I will be interviewing the team tomorrow, and plan to ask about their plans for the season, their thoughts on their excellent placement at Nationals, and how it feels to be starring in the Lake Placid Saturday Night Ice Show!
The show is at 7:30 pm on Saturday August 27th, at the Olympic Center's 1932 rink. Admission fees are charged, with discounts for young children and seniors.
