Extraordinary Talent of the Week: Ice dancer Joci Haines

WSYR-TV - Next week, a Marietta teenager will live out her dream—she and her ice dancing partner will compete at the U.S. Nationals, against the best skaters in the country.
 
Jocelyn Haines, our Extraordinary Talent of the Week, is 14 years old, and she’s never stopped skating.

Her first coach saw the way she carried herself and suggested ice dancing.

Last fall, her coach matched her up with Jimmy Koszuta.  They spend all week training in Buffalo, and Joci comes home to Marietta on weekends.

They've been able to accomplish in five short months, what it takes most dance partners a couple of years do.

Jocelyn has a GoFundMe page to help with her training expenses, which are thousands of dollars a year. Click here to donate.
