The Ice Follies, formerly known as the Shipstads & Johnson Ice Follies, was the very first original traveling ice show. The first performance was in Tulsa, Oklahoma on November 7, 1936. The show combined large casts of figure skaters with theater. It included colorful lights, dazzling costumes, and wonderful musical scores and choreography. Ice Follies achieved record-breaking success from 1936 to 1979. When the show first came into being, it was apparent that a new form of entertainment had been created.
