Some of the best ice dancers in the world train right here in Metro Detroit.

Meryl Davis began skating on the lake behind her family's West Bloomfield home. 

She trains at the Arctic Edge of Canton with her ice dance partner of 16 years, Charlie White. 

Davis and White are six-time US Figure Skating Champions, in 2011 they became the first American team to win the World Ice Dancing Championships.  They won the world title again in 2013. 

When Davis is not skating she attends the University of Michigan, and likes to enjoy spending time outside near her home in Plymouth, Mich.

Davis and White took this year off of school to focus completely on skating.
