I actually started learning ice dance in Redwood City, when I was seven years old. My first coach, John Dowding, was one of the best coaches I could have asked for. He was gentle, he was kind, and he was always very patient with me, going over the exercises and fundamentals until he was sure that I had mastered the skill. I have much to thank him for.
In the past couple of years, I have also had a lot of fun participating in the annual Bay Area Ice Dance Weekend with the BAID (Bay Area Ice Dancers). And I always enjoy skating with my friends during the social ice dance sessions on Sundays at San Jose.
