Welcome to the official website for Lorraine McNamara and Quinn Carpenter, junior level ice dancers, who train at Wheaton Ice Arena in Wheaton, Maryland.

Lorraine and Quinn are coached by Alexei Kiliakov, Elena Novak and Dmitry Ilin as part of their training group, Wheaton Ice Skating Academy. Their training includes two to six hours per day on the ice as well as additional ballet, ballroom and other off ice classes. Since forming their partnership in 2005, they have collected national medals at both the juvenile and intermediate levels as well as bronze medals at the 2012 and 2013 U.S. National Championships at the junior level.  During the 2013-14 season, Lorraine and Quinn won the bronze at the Junior Grand Prix Final and silver at the 2014 U.S. National Championships. Lorraine and Quinn captured the gold medal (junior level) at the 2015 U.S. National Championships and the silver medal at the 2015 World Junior Championships.  In 2016, they repeated as U.S. junior champions and claimed the gold medal at the World Junior Championships.


In order to make our dream a reality, we must be committed to our sport in every way possible and bring our training to new levels. Our practice regimen must continue to expand, both on and off the ice. This will add a greater financial burden to what is already a very expensive sport. We are both very fortunate to have supportive families who do everything possible to help us achieve our goals. Our dedication is unlimited, and our families will continue to do all that they can, but now we need your help to reach the next level. Our goal for this competitive season is to raise $20,000 of community support. Any funding we receive will go towards costumes, skates, coaching fees, and ice time fees. With the demand for more intensive training, these expenses grow each year. With your kindness and generosity, you can be part of our success and make this goal a reality! Thank you sincerely for your time and support and please share this with your friends and family.

All the best, Lorraine & Quinn
