In 2017 we collaborated on a program with Northeast Passage, The Strawbery Banke Museum, and the NH Association for the Blind for a day of skating for the visually impaired.
Please listen to this wonderful NHPR broadcast featuring Douglas Webster that speaks to our outreach goals!

FUTURE IN SIGHT 2018
Labrie Family Skate Puddle Dock Pond, Portsmouth, NH, February 2, 2018
IDI strives to share the joy of skating with ALL!
It is IDI's goal to invest in community and share the joy of skating.
We try our best to engage as a full company when we're in residence, on tour, or involved in a special IDI event.
We currently have two homes for celebrating our passion with others:
Labrie Family Skate in Portsmouth, NH where we have our "Get Out and Skate" Program with the public schools and where we collaborate with Future In Sight for a skating program for the visually impaired.
And the Sun Valley Skating Center where we collaborate with
Higher Ground on a skating program for kids with special needs.
We invest 100% of our energy in these programs and love that they provide
a much needed break to our days of rehearsal and performance
and they remind us why we fell in love with skating in the first place!
