The driving force behind Entertainment on Ice is Madelène van Beuzekom.
Madelène is a former top sport figure skater. She turned her passion into her job when, at the age of 18, she became the only Dutch person to skate with the international company Holiday on Ice, traveling the world for six years as a top performer. After this experience, Madelène started her company Entertainment on Ice through which she wants to give skating a stage and share the beauty of skating with the world by developing and producing skating shows and acts.
In 2014, she thought of making a musical about the Elfstedentocht. It will premiere on Oct. 1, 2023, in Leeuwarden. See also www.musicaldetocht.frl
Conceiving and creating entertainment concepts herself is her passion, but sharing them with audiences is what drives her.
