“When they put on ice skates, they have no idea how to walk on ice skates! And that’s before they even get on the ice. So then helping these professionals help them actually get out on the ice, it opens up new doors. Then they’re going to leave here today and go back to school and realize they can achieve anything if they can put on ice skates and skate around,” said
Sharon Alton, a spokesman for Downtown Denver Partnership.
