Hey all. I remember reading a fan Q & A that W/P did a few weeks back, and I believe the story for the FD is pretty much what we've deduced. As far as I remeber, he is the sculptor, and she is his statue, and he brings her to life. I was particularly impressed by the fact that they were really able to portray the theme throughout.

One thing I'm sure of is the music, which comes from the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers (often referred to as The LXD) soundtrack (it's a dance troupe that broadcasts their performaces in episode format online). I haven't been able to figure out which episode the music is from, but I'm pretty sure this is it:

im really liking the choreo and music of their fd. i just hope kaitlyn would polish her lines further--more stretch, more extension, more toe point. the choreo would sing more if she does those

Maybe it has something to do with the coverage/quality of the video but I was a bit underwhelmed.
I really hate the costume. I agree she is a statue coming to life, so I think the costume should be skin toned.
It needs a lot of work but I see how it can build.
I really wish Katelyn had more flexibility through her hips as some moves seem awkward and like a strain for her.
The music is gorgeous though and it seemed to fly by.
I am kind over their second lift. They have done it the same way pretty much for three seasons. it's time to retire it. Also in general thought the lifts were quick. is their a new Lift time requirement this year.
However I am thrilled to see them skate with confidence and maturity. I will probably feel better about once it has miles and it is carried with better video quality etc.

indeed she is a statue coming to life in this theme, but i think the gray color would look more appealing than a nude color--makes her look more like a grecian statue (think of greek goddesses) than a mannequin ;)

and i couldnt agree more on kaitlyn's lack of flexibility/stretch

IMO a skin toned costume would be all kinds of wrong, the grey colour on the other hand, suggests a carved stone statue, plus it looks good against the ice...

I thought about this too. But she is a statue so she dont need more flexibility or more extension in this story line.
I think thats why they choose this story :)

The reason I picked nude toned but more like a soft peach pink is what I meant was because it would match her skin tone and then it would be the same tone form head to toe. As most statues are the same grey or alabaster in the face/ head as well.
Regardless I still hate the costume. Perhaps it will look better on a better quality screen. But it looked very washed out to me and unflattering.

So, I am not an ice dance fan. Most FD's hold my attention for about 30 seconds. I watched this twice. Simply gorgeous. Is there a story behind the choreography?

From what I've gathered, Andrew is bringing Kaitlyn, a statue, to life and dancing with her then restoring her. But I don't think they've disclosed their story.

their FD music sounds familiar to me. did it get featured in a movie as a soundtrack? somehow, bits of it reminds me of an instrumental piece by the irish sibling group the corrs.

It's from the League of Extraordinary Dancers

I like this program a lot - it needs mileage and complexity for them to get on the podium.

I have always loved Andrew but now I see Kaitlyn coming into her own. She is a far cry from the young girl who first teamed up with Andrew.

They will be good role models for Paul and Piper where one person is not as refined as the other.

:lol: Oh, emdee . I had to step away from my computer for a bit after reading your post.

It's as if being role models for G/P is the most important thing. At last , a useful purpose for W/P.

I'm sure you didn't mean it that way .. but it just struck me funny..:rofl:

Somehow ,I don't think G/P are wanting to adopt W/P as role models. They seem to be trying to progress by another route , entirely.

Glad I killed you Pratfall!

Maybe G&P want another route but there is NO other.She has to improve to reach Paul's level no if, ands or buts. This is what Kaitlin had to do and she has done it. No amount of tricks can hide the fact.

Besides role models are very important as they create a skating tradition. Canada has had a mens tradition for many years and a pairs tradition. Now a dance tradition. The good women have skated in isolation. Never making the cut for one reason or another.
