Paige Ellingson, 10

“I have been [figure] skating since I was three years old, so for 12 years. I compete in ice dance, so there are no major jumps and we wear long dresses. Ice dance is also based more off of classical dance such as ballet. My favorite part of figure skating is every day at practice, the wind blows through me and my legs push really hard to glide as fast as I can on one thin blade- it’s a feeling truly unique to the sport.”
