FSWer, all those photo galleries you linked to (except for the one labeled "2010 SA Ladies Practice; Thursday, 2010-11-11" which is from Skate America this past November) are from 2010 US Nationals when there were still 3 phases for Junior/Senior Dance: Compulsory Dance (CD), Original Dance (OD) and Free Dance (FD).

Only Junior and Senior dance teams perform the new Short Dance in competition. This season, the "Pattern Dance" is what used to be known as the Compulsory Dance, and 2 different pattern dances (abbreviated P1 and P2) are skated in the 3 levels below Senior/Junior -- Novice, Intermediate and Juvenile -- along with the Free Dance.
