Short Answers
Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
Short term goals:
To find a partner with whom I can build a strong, long term partnership and who is as motivated, hard-working and passionate about ice dance as I am. Compete on Team USA, internationally and at Nationals again.
Long term goals: Compete internationally, at Worlds and eventually the Olympics.
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
I have a very strong work ethic. I am disciplined, focused, committed, athletic, artistic and flexible. I skate with deep edges and I have good posture. I am a quick learner. I also love learning and performing challenging lifts.
I am a kind person and very easy going. I work hard but also like to have fun.
I love to perform, dance and compete!
Extra comments:
I am a National Junior Competitor. I attend school on-line which provides for a flexible training schedule. I skate 20+ hours/ week in addition to daily off-ice training including Russian ballet, hip hop, contemporary dance, pilates, and strength training.

I am open to representing another country. I have eligibility to represent Israel, South Africa and Poland.
