New Year, New Beginnings

Our team is always searching for inspiration to keep our skating fresh and alive.  Whether that inspiration comes from theater, ballet, art or a song we hear on the radio.

Last year on New Year’s Eve, we celebrated by going to see a play – Phantom of the Opera – which, to everyone’s chagrin, inspired us to skate our hearts out over the following season in our freeskate.

We always want to skate the type of program we would want to watch. We want to skate the type of program that inspires us to skate it – not the type of program that we have to swallow like a pill. This season, our long program has always felt inspired. Our short program, on the other hand, has been a challenge. So, together with our coach, we decided to make a change. To make this change, we decided to follow our inspiration.

Our new short program is set to “Take Me to Church” by Hozier. This has always been a song that invokes passion between us, a passion we are looking forward to bringing on to the ice at the U.S. National Championships in St. Paul, Minnesota.

We are looking forward to making every day of 2016 count.

Happy New Year!
