VALERIE LEVINE has collaborated on ITNY events for the past two decades and has been roller-skating as well as dancing tap, jazz and ballet since the age of 4. She started training in figure skating at 11, and went on to compete and test until she graduated high school, turning down Disney On Ice to pursue her bachelor’s degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) instead of going on tour. At 19, she earned her Gold level Senior Ladies Moves and Pre-golds in ice dance before skating professionally as an ice girl for the NHL New York Rangers and Islanders. While earning her BS in Product Management Textiles from FIT, she minored in dance and trained at Broadway Dance Center in many dance styles, which led to an off-ice career as a professional belly dancer, ballroom dancer, Brazilian samba dancer and much more. She currently teaches and performs all of these styles worldwide as well as managing her own entertainment company Valerina Dance.
