Why I choose to skate Riedell: 
     Billy: Ever since our mother bought us a set of skates from a garage sale as kids, they were a Riedell pair. It has been our favorite.
     Emily: Because Riedell is the only skate I trust my life and career on. 
 
If you were stranded on island that luckily had a skating rink, other than your Riedell skates, what is one item that you would want to have with you?
     Billy: A speaker to learn how to dance on skates.
     Emily: My dog.
 
What motivates you to be the best skater you can be? 
     Billy: Just a love of skating and the places and distances it can bring you when you have passion. It brought us to Vegas!
     Emily: My fans and the support they give me through their comments and messages.
 
What is your biggest pet peeve?
     Billy: Fluorescent lighting in some dance studios. I love natural light.
     Emily: When my boyfriend leaves the toilet seat up…GRRRRR!
 
Which 3 individuals, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most?
     Billy: Will Ferrell as Chaz Michaels from “Blades of Glory, The Queen, and Simon Cowell.
     Emily: My Dad, Tonya Harding, and Frank Sinatra.
 
If you could write a book about your life, what would the title be and why?
     Billy: “The Greatest Comeback There Ever Was and Will Be” - Because through all the adversity we have faced, no one believed in us. 
     Emily: “Emily England – Life On a Tightrope”. My father was a tightrope performer and when he died, our life was a mix of highs and lows.
 
At practice, what is one skating maneuver you are currently working on to get better at? 
     Billy: I would like my sister to spin me, somehow.
     Emily: One foot spins.
