Short Answers
Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
My short-term goal is to find a serious and committed dance partner.
My long-term goal is to partner dance as long as I possibly can at a serious and competitive level. My ultimate goals are to make a National Team and compete on the international stage at Worlds and the Olympics.
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
I am very hard-working, persistent, and deeply passionate about ice dance. I am consistent and organized with my practice habits. I set many goals for myself to maintain my focus on success. I love learning new skills that challenge me. I participate in this sport because it is fun.
Extra comments:
I have been skating for about 10 years. Of those years, 7 of them were spent on Solo Dance. I have made it to the Solo Dance Nationals and consistently placed in the top 10 for the past 5 years. I also did couples dance for the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
I live an hour away from the rink where I train. For 5 years, I have been waking up at 3:30 am to get to the rink by 5 am for 2-3 hours of practice, 5 days a week. With this schedule I have been able to maintain a GPA above a 4.0 while taking AP classes. I have been able to balance school, friends, and skating.
