This is Leah Neset and Artem Markelov. They’re a junior ice skating dance team that formed during the difficulties of 2020. This wonderful video showcases how incredibly well they have done to form such a tight performing bond when for the first months of their partnership they could only practice off the ice.
Leah began skating with the Magic City Figure Skating Club when she was only four years old. Following her young start to the sport, she moved to Colorado Springs with her family to train with the ice dancing team there under the guidance of a coach named Elena Dostatni.
Artem is a Russian ice dancer from Volgograd. He started learning to ice skate when he was nine years old. He moved to Moscow in 2019 to take his passion to the next level. The dance team found each other through a website that matches ice skaters looking to create new partnerships.
