Short Answers
Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
Short-Term: To find a partner who is committed to ice dance, and would like to work hard, to be the best we can be, 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 this season. I would like to find someone who is interested in forming a long-term, partnership and a solid, competitive team.

My long-term goals include competing at worlds, and other top senior international competitions. 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, have a good sense of humor. I skate 5-6 days a week, 3-5 sessions a day. Plus personal training and off-ice dance. I am respectful of my coaches and partner, learn and make corrections quickly, get along well with others, I am detail oriented, and am willing to work at something until it is correct.

* 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 videos can be viewed on YouTube.com 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, & 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! (:
