Rising to the competitive challenge in a changed world

Madi and Zach arrive in Las Vegas safely, healthy, and ready for the 2021 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships

This week, Madi and Zach are competing at the 2021 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada. After a spring, summer, and fall marked with unprecedented challenges in their training and competitive schedules, Madi and Zach are grateful for the opportunity to compete in a safe and familiar environment: the Orleans Hotel and Arena, where they won Skate America in 2019 (shown above) and 2020.

Although the 2020-21 figure skating season has been marked by significant disruptions to the ISU Challenger Series and Grand Prix of Figure Skating, Madi and Zach were excited to demonstrate their fitness and competitive readiness early in the fall at 2020 Skate America, which they won. Like Nationals this week, the event was held at the Orleans Arena where they competed under strict travel, testing, masking, distancing, and quarantine protocols.

Madi and Zach are pleased to be among the few teams in the world debuting both a new rhythm dance and a new free dance for the 2020-21 season. For their rhythm dance, Madi and Zach have developed a new, energetic, and upbeat program using selections from “Burlesque” performed by Christina Aguilera. The program conforms to the prescribed musicals, operettas, and/or Broadway themes and required Finnstep pattern carried over by the ISU from last season.

For their free dance, they are skating to “Hallelujah,” as performed by both k.d. lang and Jeff Buckley. The program is a thorough revision of their acclaimed rhythm dance from the 2015-2016 season. It is also the result of a new choreographic collaboration with Olympic gold medalist Scott Moir, who trained alongside them in Montreal for many years. Below is their winning performance from 2020 Skate America.

Madi and Zach would like to thank U.S. Figure Skating for the opportunities they've had to compete this season. They would also like to thank the Orleans staff for their intensive collaboration with U.S. Figure Skating in holding competitions in a safe "bubble" environment.
