Rosenthal further raised the show's energy level with her famous "Rock It" routine by Herbie Hancock, which won Best Performance of the Year by the Professional Skater's Association in 2006. She did a double Axel with a small slip on the landing and high-octane spirals, spins and footwork.
Rosenthal, a Yale sophomore, said it was great to be out on the ice skating again. Currently, she teaches part-time at the Newington Arena and is also part of a professional New Haven-based dance troupe.
"I knew Parker from when I competed, and he's a very nice guy. At the national level, it's a relatively small community, and you pretty much know everyone. Even though you might compete against one another, it's really all about friendship and building great relationships, and we're all here for one another," said Rosenthal.
