I got an opportunity to interview Kirstie Nelson, who portrays the role of Cinderella, in Disney On Ice celebrates Everyone’s Story. Read on to know more her and be inspired! By the way, the last 2 questions in the interview are asked by my kids as they were very curious to know about the actual person portraying Cinderella.


Q: Please tell us something more about your background.
A: I have been skating since I was 5 years old and grew up as a competitive skater in Canada before transitioning into Professional skating. I am a certified yoga instructor, as well as a certified chemical engineer and I worked as an engineer for 3 years before joining Disney on Ice.
Q: How is being Yoga trained help you in preparation for this role of Cinderella?
A: Being yoga trained is probably one of the best things I could have done for my skating. Not only do I love teaching yoga classes to fellow skaters, but I also love the benefits it provides. Aside from improving body awareness, it is a crucial component in keeping our bodies strong and healthy. Doing a variety of yoga exercises help me to warm up my muscles properly before stepping on the ice as Cinderella.
Q: What advice would you like to give people who would like to pursue ice skating as a career?
A: Ice skating is a sport that takes years of practice to master and involves a lot of hard work with countless hours of training each week. There will be many trips and falls along the way, but if you believe in yourself and don’t give up, anything is possible!
Q: What if you fall down or trip during your performance? How do you handle this situation?
A: Skating is a live action sport and as skillful and graceful we are on the ice, there are bound to be trips and falls from time to time. This is just the nature of skating and we have been trained to always get back up and keep going no matter what! Put it behind you, keep smiling and give the best performance possible!
Q: When you are not playing Disney On Ice character, what do you do? Any other hobbies,studies you do?
A: When I’m not skating with Disney On Ice, I really enjoy reading, doing yoga,running, watching movies, traveling and exploring new places!

Wow, what Kirstie said is so true. Not only to ice-skating, it’s applicable to every task that we do.

There are bound to be trips and falls from time to time. Always get back up and keep going no matter what! Put it behind you, keep smiling and give the best performance possible!

After all, Disney stories are for everyone. Something that we can relate too and that’s why we all love these stories and characters generation after generation.
