These kids looked as sharp as their skates.

The young skaters of Brooklyn Ice brought the spirit of the People’s Playground to Prospect Park on March 23, sweeping across the frozen stage of the LeFrak Center rink to the delight of their parents and other spectators.

Legendary Coney Island performer Scott Baker emceed the “Coney Island On Ice” show, which also featured magicians and other freaky sideshow-style performances.

Brooklyn Ice is a free after-school program that teaches children from the neighborhoods around Prospect Park the art of ice skating. The program began in 2004, and the March 23 show was its 10th annual end-of-winter performance.
