On the World Stage

We have arrived in Boston! 

DREAMers Ashley and Ashleigh ready to go
With a plane ride of only 2 hours, the trip was short and sweet. Upon our arrival, we met up with our team leader, Robin, and the Haydenettes at our outstanding hotel located right in the heart of Boston… it even has a Starbucks inside – a perfect treat for hard-working skaters! We all went to bed the first night with excitement for what was to come.

At the beginning of each day here, Robin has been giving us all a slip of paper with a quote that has fired us up for our practices. We love our awesome team leader! Wednesday and Thursday were long days, but the adrenaline of this competition and excitement of the atmosphere propelled us through some great practices that left us feeling so ready going into the short program competition tonight.

The official draw ceremony was held last night. Each team had made a short video about themselves and these were shown as the teams were called up to draw. It was so much fun to see the unique personalities of all of the teams showcased in their videos. We had so much fun making ours!

We drew 6th and will have clean ice to skate on for our short program. It is hard to believe the time is finally here to show off our programs. Miami is ready to astound the world.

Let the competition begin!
