On August 22 2007 Claire Smyth of Michigan's Lakeland SC passed her final Gold Dance, the Westminster Waltz. Reaching the top of any of the skating disciplines is a tremendous challenge; passing all 23 Dance tests requires great endurance as well as great skill!! Claire is pictured here with partner Richard Brown and coach Jan Kalil.
To every skater that successfully meets this challenge, and especially to Claire on this special day, Congratulations !!!
