This will be Barbie’s third straight appearance at U.S. Nationals. Barbie made her international debut this past year as a member of the USA Team competing in the junior division where she earned the Gold Medal at the Gardena Spring Trophy in Italy and earned the silver in her first ISU Junior Grand Prix event, Sencila Bled Cup in Slovenia. Barbie, a 16 year old from St. Louis, MO began skating at the age of 4 in the US Figure Skating Learn To Skate program. World Champion Pairs skater, Igor Lisovski will appear in the part of Drosselmeir this year. Igor is the 1981 World and European Pairs Champion.
