I've based my top ten on pure enjoyment for me.
But I have to say that Maya Usova was the best female ice dancer I have ever seen.

Yes, they are now World champs. My post is dated 4/9/11, before the Worlds took place. :)

I didn't even notice this was a revived old thread. :lol:

these are under marked IMHO

You didn't include Domnina/Shabalin, “Primavera Portena” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NH16HPoNzCQ)?!?!?!?! Probably my favourite of their dances, actually. I don't think they were underscored in those competitions for thoses dances, but I would've had this tango second or third in the OD for sure.

2007 was a wierd year, thinking about it.

oh, can we play this game and name the best dancers istead of best teams? :)

from the period when I've been watching skating, the male dancers that stood out most for me have been Peizerat, Vanagas, Averbukh and White. Also Massimo Scali, on his good day.

as for female dancers, the case is harder here, gonna have to think it through.

Can I add Christopher Dean? He did skate in 1994. I'm I just can't think of male ice dancers without him coming to my mind!

Let's play my favourite game.
Match any female ice dancer of the past 20 years with any male ice dancer of the past 20 years.
Maya Usova & Scott Moir !
Pasha Grishuk & Charlie White !
Or Tanith Belbin & Massimo Scalli

Domnina & Shabalin only won Worlds in 2009 since Delobel & Schoenfelder had that fluke injury in the exhibition at the GP final and couldnt skate so it is a trade off basically. Each won the Worlds the other should have won. DelSchoes crushed DomShabs at the Grand Prix final that year, and DomShabs were really no better at Worlds.

They definitely could have. They beat DelSchoes at Euros and GPF with that program, both times pulling up from behind in the OD by scoring well enough with the Masquerade FD to win overall.

I won't say they definitely would have, because you never know what can happen, like B&A falling in the CD at Worlds that year.

Am I the only one who thinks Zhulin went & got a Maya Usova look-a-like in Tatiana Navka?!
Dream teams- Tessa Virtue & Christopher Dean.
Can you imagine the wonderful programes they could have put together?
How about Sinead Kerr & Sergi Ponamerenko?
