Perfect Landings Opening Soon at Pier 21 in Halifax
Discover the immigration stories behind some of Canada’s pioneering figure skaters, coaches and builders of the sport, from January 16 to March 20, 2016 at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21.
Perfect Landings explores the relationship between immigration and figure skating in Canada through a series of biographies. Learn the inspiring stories of John Knebli, a talented craftsman who arrived at Pier 21 in 1930, Ellen Burka, a Holocaust survivor who came to Canada in 1951 and went on to train some of the country’s best-known skaters, and many others.
As well, Canadian Tire National Skating Championship ticket holders will receive 15% off Museum admission by showing their ticket stub on arrival.
Perfect Landings is presented in partnership with Skate Canada. Visit www.pier21.ca for more details.
