Today, figure skaters Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay will board a plane for Sochi, Russia, to compete in the Olympics.

But before they share their talent on the world's stage, on Friday the pair dazzled fans at Ellenton Ice and Sports Complex, where they've trained for about two years.

More than 450 fans watched the duo perform a modified version of their Olympic free skate program -- costumes and all.

Zhang and Bartholomay qualified for Team USA after winning a silver medal last month at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Boston.
