Short Answers
Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
My short term goal is to find a partner with whom I can create a long term partnership and who is as committed and as passionate about ice dance as I am.
My long term goals are to make Team USA and to compete at Internationals, Worlds and the Olympics.
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
I am a very hard worker. I am also very focused, dedicated and have a positive attitude. I love skating. I train 5-6 days a week, approximately 4 hours/ day on the ice in addition to off-ice training including Ballet, Hip-Hop, Ballroom and Strength and Conditioning 3x week and Expression class. I am a fast learner and choreography comes very easily to me. I am very respectful, kind, polite and funny. I am also super easy to get along with. I am passionate about ice dance and love to compete!!
I absolutely love to do lifts... the more challenging the better!! I work hard but I also like to have fun!
Extra comments:
I have completed my testing and I have a lot of partnering experience. I trained with my previous partner for the 2019-2020 season in Estero, Florida. We attended the Chesapeake Ice Dance Camp this past summer and we were registered to compete at 3 competitions.
I am fortunate to have been trained by Olympic and World class coaches. I train with Olympic, International and World Class Coaches Igor Shpilband, Pasquale Camerlengo, Natalia Annenko Deller, Adrienne Lenda & the rest of their amazing team. Previously, I trained with Marina Zoueva, Oleg Epstein and their team in Canton, Michigan and then in Estero Florida.
I previously competed free style and was trained by Olympic and World class free style coaches, Jason Dungjen, Yuka Sato and Alissa Czisny at the Detroit Skating Club.
I am in the 9th grade and attend school on-line which provides for a flexible schedule and allows me to train unlimited hours.
I can also potentially represent Israel, South Africa or Poland. Please feel free to contact me for a try-out and/ or video!
