The widely-heralded Figure Skating in Harlem youth development program — the first of its kind to combine education and the artistic discipline of figure skating for girls of color — is coming to Detroit, the first city selected in a national expansion. Figure Skating in Detroit, which was announced at the city’s annual Christmas tree lighting at Campus Martius on Friday, will serve 300 Detroit girls ages 6-15 in its inaugural year. The after-school program will use the Campus Martius ice rink, the Jack Adams Arena in northwest Detroit, the Detroit Skating Club in Bloomfield Township and, possibly, the new Little Caesars Arena.
