Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
My short term goals are to find a partner and start competing. My long term goals are to make it on Team USA and compete internationally.
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
I have been working with a partner at my rink for the past 6 months and we have been working on a free dance for testing so I have experience doing a complete program with someone. I also skated on Richmond Synchro for 4 years so I am very good at working with a partner and staying in sync.
I am very motivated and disciplined and I would like to find someone who shares that. I like to get criticism from others because I always want to know how I can improve. It is also very important that my partner and I develop a good friendship and that he is easy to get along with.
This will be my second season competing solo dance and I will be competing at the Novice level. I did freestyle for 4 years and then did artistic for a year before I fell in love with dance. I love being expressive and theatrical with my programs. I also do private kickboxing and conditioning and private ballet with an instructor from the Richmond Ballet.
