THE SHIPSTADS & JOHNSON 
ORIGINAL AND FINEST...ICE FOLLIES OF 1951

For those who don't know: The Ice Follies, formerly known as the Shipstads & Johnson Ice Follies, was a touring ice show featuring elaborate production numbers, similar in concept to Ice Capades. It was founded in 1936 by Eddie Shipstad, Roy Shipstad, and Oscar Johnson, who also skated in the show. In later years, Olympic skaters such as Donald Jackson, Barbara Berezowski, Peggy Fleming, and Janet Lynn were in the cast. Click on the link http://bit.ly/1Tj3qZZ
