Skater of the Month: May 2012

Elise Norris

Hi, I’m Elise Pualani Norris and I LOVE Figure Skating. I’m 7 years old and currently attending Kipapa Elementary School. Three years ago, I came to Ice Palace for the first time for my friend’s birthday party and I’ve been coming here ever since. I started in the Tots class and now I’m in Freestyle 4 and Intermediate Artistry. I’m currently working on my Preliminary Moves in the Field and Jumps: I can land a Flip Jump, sometimes I can land a Lutz Jump, and next is my Axel. The coach that I owe all my thanks to for getting me this far is Debrah Wrae Lauer. My goal is to skate in the Olympics and win a Gold Medal.

My favorite spins are a Sit Spin and a Flying Camel. My Favorite jump is a Flip Jump. My Favorite Color is Gold and my favorite animal is a Golden Frog (Phyllobates Terribilis). I love everything that is Gold and sparkles. The other things I like to do when I’m not on the ice are Swimming, Piano, Traveling, and Hiking. Many Thanks to the Hawaii Figure Skating Club for choosing me as the Skater of the Month.
