Jamaica Plain resident Elin Schran skated with Dorothy Hamill, performed in the Ice Capades and recently launched Joy Skate Productions, which is hosting a benefit for the veteran and military communities on February 4 on the Boston Common. Schran answered questions about the new company, the benefit event and more. Q: When and why did you create Joy Skate Productions? Schran: I started Joy Skate Productions in June of 2018 to make the joy of skating accessible to more people. I love skating -- the sense of freedom you have when you’re gliding on the ice, and the sense of community that comes when you enjoy the ice with others.
