Short Answers
Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
SHORT-TERM: To find a partner who wants to work hard, have fun, and go as far as we can in this sport.

I am motivated to get started as soon as possible so we can compete next season, and hopefully get to Nationals.

I would like to find someone who is interested in forming a lasting partnership and a solid, competitive team.

LONG-TERM: I would love to compete internationally, and beyond.

I am open to discussing relocation, and/or competing for another country, if it would be beneficial to both partners and would be a positive move for the partnership to grow,
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
I am a hard worker, and am very committed to ice dance. I skate 5-6 days a week, 3-5 sessions a day. Plus personal training and off-ice dance. I also coach figure skaters at the World Arena part-time.

I am respectful of my coaches and partner, learn quickly, get along well with others and have a good sense of humor. I like to work hard. But, also have fun.

* I have quite a bit of partner experience, can spin in both directions, and am comfortable with lifts.

* I have extensive training in several forms of dance that includes: Classical Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Character, Hip Hop, Ariel/Cirque and Ballroom (Both American and International Styles)
Extra comments:
My video can be viewed on YouTube.com and by then searching Cayla Cottrell. Or, on icenetwork.com and then searching 2017 Midwestern Sectionals.

Other skating experience includes:

* Senior level Theater on Ice Team, 2 seasons. Competing at National Championships.

* National Showcase Championships, twice. Placing in final rounds.

Training in Colorado Springs offers many benefits:

* The opportunity to train at multiple rinks, including the Broadmoor World Arena. The only Olympic Training site for USFSA.

* A high altitude environment that helps to increase athletes endurance and ability,

* Highly competitive environment, with the opportunity to train alongside, and with, World and Olympic level coaches and skaters.

* The team of coaches here in Colorado Springs are very motivated to help skaters achieve the highest possible level that they are capable of.

*I look forward to hearing from you soon! (:
