The latest Disney on Ice instalment titled, The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice, is set to hit South African shores this winter and will feature South Africa’s very own talent.

The audiences will get to see local husband and wife duo, Konrad and Yolande Giering on stage with the very talented Disney on Ice cast at the Ticket Pro Dome in Johannesburg from 30 June to 9 July.

This incredibly talented couple have known each other since they were five years old and are looking forward to putting on a great show here at home for local audiences, family and friends.

For Yolande, a career in skating came about by accident when at a young age, due to medical reasons, she was advised by doctors to skate as a way of correcting a problem with her feet. She found great joy in it, so much so that she turned it into a professional career.

She began skating at the age of seven and went on to achieve her gold level test, Level 6 Skating Skills and Level 1 Coaching Test. She joined Disney On Ice in 2009 and has performed in the USA, Canada and Asia.

Giering began his skating career at the age of four and held the title of SA National Junior Champion from 2000 to 2004 and then again in 2007. As a kid training at the Gauteng North Club in Pretoria, growing up in Benoni, Giering then went on to represent South Africa at international competitions, including Four Continents and Junior Worlds.

Like his wife, Giering joined Disney On Ice in 2009 and he has since performed across every continent except Europe.

Along with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy, the couple will take to the ice with beloved characters from Disney’s Frozen and Pixar’s Finding Dory and Toy Story. In addition, for the first time in South Africa, Disney’s Tangled will debut on the frozen stage. More exciting news is the return of Simba, Timon and Pumbaa from Disney’s The Lion King.
