Hannah Foss started skating when she was 7 years old. Once enrolled in group lessons, she quickly passed through her Learn to Skate levels and started working on her Moves in the Field, Freeskate, and Dance disciplines. Over the years, Hannah has earned many competitive accolades and most recently earned the title of Gold Medalist by passing her Senior Moves in the Field at just 15 years old! According to US Figure Skating, only about 3 percent of skaters are at the gold or senior level. The MCFSC is proud to have multiple skaters earn this recognition.
Hannah is also well on her way to earning all of her Gold Level Dances. The four dances needed to attain Gold status are; Argentine Tango, Quickstep, Westminster Waltz and the Viennese Waltz. Hannah has passed her Quickstep and has 3 dances to go. With a little hard work and determination, we believe Hannah will achieve this goal!

What advice would you give to new skaters? I would say never give up even if it seems impossible. If it’s your first time skating and you keep falling don’t worry it happens to everyone. Also, don’t be scared to try the new things coaches ask you to do or even ask for help the coaches will always help you.
