If anyone would like to help Oona & Gage and contribute to the Brown family's skating fund: https://www.gofundme.com/f/oona-and-gages-skating-fund
Some interesting facts about us are: we come from a family of seven children, ages 12-23. We are homeschooled. We started skating as a homeschool class once a week when Oona was 4 and Gage was 6. We started competing together as an ice dance team at ages 10 (Oona) and 12 (Gage).

Hi all, we recently filmed with our friend Jordan (On Ice Perspectives) at Bryant park in NYC. It is always a blast filming with him!
Here is a link to our full Free Dance program!
Cheers


Copying over some of today's posts from the U.S. Dance thread in GSD:
Wow. Wow. Wow. I just saw this.

Look at their faces! Look at her dazzling smile and his grin! Look at their stretch, their lines, and their matching commitment and passion for the dance. I just fell in love, yet again, with another US Ice Dance Team.
Oona and Gage’s video has already logged over half a million views — I guess it must have gotten shared somewhere highly visible?
oona and Gage's video was posted on my FB by a friend of mine who knows absolutely nothing about skating but thought it was cool.
This program is just WOW!
The Browns are my current favorite Jr team. Glad so many people are noticing them!
Yep, it was messaged to me by a FB friend too. How nice for them to have a video go viral! :)
I fell for them last season but this FD is a quantum leap forward. 2026 has a new contender.

Okay, I'll be the first official reply for this cheer thread. I liked Oona and Gage last year, but this season's FD has just propelled them forward artistically. I'm a bigger fan now and I hope they have the opportunity to compete for the junior crown at the upcoming Nationals. They're terrific.

The skating is great, but the videography is out-of-this-world fabulous. Wouldn't you love to see some other routines captured this way?

This video has nearly 3 million views. Wow. Lots of comments in Russian.

It was suggested to me by YouTube, so I guess lots of other skating fans may be finding it that way.

IDC article by Anne Calder (March 30):
Excerpts:
The large block of training time after the National Championships usually allotted to prepare for Junior Worlds was diverted to other projects this year.
“We have used this time to expand our skating skills; the time also allows us to be extra prepared for our upcoming season,” Oona explained. “We have been spending a lot of time improvising both on and off the ice. This helps our choreography process as well as our creativity and flow.”
“We are putting a lot of effort into our choreography process; the extra time definitely helps since we have two programs to create instead of last year’s one,” noted Gage. “We’ve also been touching up our technical skills as well as developing new elements and transitions to hopefully improve on our component mark.”
“Our goals for the upcoming season are to win the title at the 2022 Nationals, as well as to make the podium for all of our JGP assignments. To achieve these goals, I will be working on every detail, both separately and with Gage,” Oona declared.
“We plan on achieving our goals with lots of hard work, training and perfecting the little details. We are also hoping to expand our repertoire of lifts and elements for the coming season,” added Gage.
The Brown siblings have another positive going for them as they aim to accomplish more feats on the ice.
They come from a very musical family. Gage has played the electric bass for about nine years. He sings and plays in a band he started with his two older brothers. He also plays the bagpipes and has participated in several Irish marching bands with Oona, who is a snare drummer.
