Great Neck’s, 23-year-old Jesse Berman grew up figure skating at the Great Neck Park District’s Andrew Stergiopoulos Ice Rink at the Parkwwod Sports Complex. He was fortunate enough to have a rink in “his own backyard” to practice on. He figure skated so well, he was able to compete and win medals on the national level. He now has taken up ice dancing with his partner, Erin Flood. Erin studied skating throughout her childhood, started ice dancing at the age of 16 and now at 21 found herself without a partner. Jesse and Erin met at the Andrew Stergiopoulos Ice Rink and although Jesse no longer skates competitively, he is enjoying this new sport of dancing on ice. When they are skating, they look like poetry in motion!
