Hi my name is Marina Eltsova, 

I am a retired Pairs Figure Skater with over 14 years experience coaching here in the Kansas City area.  I am originally from Saint Petersburg, Russia and represented the Russian Federation along with my skating partner from 1990 to 1999.  

Figure skating has always been a part of life starting at a young age.  I now share that wealth of knowledge and experience with my students through both private and group lessons.

I am very proud of my students and enjoy coaching immensely.
