The Figure Skating Club of the Quad Cities will bring its "Out of This World" spring program to the ice at 2 p.m. on April 7. Figure-skating programs will be themed around rockets, starships, sci-fi and much more at The River's Edge in Davenport. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m.

More than 75 local skaters, ranging from preschoolers to seniors, will showcase their programs. A guest performance by U.S. senior level ice dance team of Kseniya Ponomaryova and Oleg Altukhov will round out the show. The team from Naperville recently competed at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships n Omaha in January.

Admission at the door will be $10 for adults and $5 for students/seniors. Seating is limited and available on first-arrival basis. Jackets are recommended.
