SHOW PRODUCTIONS & COACHING EVENTS

SeaJo Enterprises has successfully been open and in operation since August of 2006.   In July of 2012 we decided to take our skating business and career to an all new level and open SeaJo Productions & Entertainment, Inc. Since then we have opened On the Edge and In The Air, which is a division of the company that is dedicated to coaching.

In our first season of business SeaJo Productions & Entertainment was asked by Spirit Productions USA to choreograph, direct and reproduce the skating portion their Christmas show in Myrtle Beach, SC. The Christmas show ran successfully for a full 8 weeks in the Palace Theatre. We were then asked to choreograph the skating portion of their show that runs at the Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Canada in November through December. We continue to have the honor of doing this consecutively with this excellent team since 2013.
