The Tenley E. Albright Performance Center
The Tenley E. Albright Performance Center celebrates the character of an extraordinary athlete and scholar who had a bond with The Skating Club of Boston since her first strokes on Club ice as an eight-year-old. Tenley’s love of responding to music through creative movement, her perseverance, her courage, and her deep passion for skating are the hallmarks of what the Club believes is important for its athletes of today and tomorrow. While she has banked many firsts—she was the first U.S. woman to win Olympic gold, the first to win the triple crown of World, North American and United States titles—Tenley always believed, “it’s about more than the medals!”
The Tenley E. Albright Performance Center will host the Club’s traditional annual events in addition to other local, national, and international events sanctioned by U.S Figure Skating and the International Skating Union. It is a destination for original theatrical productions seeking a best-in-class venue where every discipline of figure skating is both welcomed and celebrated. It is a venue that celebrates the joy and thrill of figure skating at its finest, as it also deepens and amplifies the Club’s outreach to audiences from across the nation, and indeed, from around the world. Tenley’s example of pushing oneself through dedication, innovation and delight is the ideal inspiration for the Club’s showpiece performance center, for those competing for titles and appearing in shows, and importantly too, for the many skaters training on an every-day basis.
