I can't think of a creative title for a general U.S. ice dance discussion thread, so this will have to do for now.

Since there's a general discussion thread for the other 3 U.S. disciplines here in the Trash Can, I figured one for dance was needed as well. ;)

Some numbers to look at...

178.07 Meryl Davis/Charlie White (Skate America, 1st; Russia next)
151.85 Maia Shibutani/Alex Shibutani (NHK, 1st; 148.40 Cup of China, 2nd)

Nice title Sylvia! If only you had asked for suggestions... ;) :P

I thought L/C would have higher scores this season. I certainly didn't expect such a new team to pass them at Sectionals. I haven't read any reports about their performances there.

I think L/C have pretty terrible programs this year. I wonder who Igor will pair Charlotte up with after this season. :lol:

I'm happy to see that S/G did well at Sectionals! Their scores were definitely much-improved from Cup of China.

30 point improvement for S/G in just two weeks time. That has got to be some kind of a record. After Cup of China, I was afraid that they may not even make the final group in San Jose, but after sectionals, it seems very possible for them to be 3rd or 4th.

Tough year so far for L/C. I think the comical, exhibition like programs they had in the past just aren't working for them at senior. I was hoping they would show something new and was excited when I read they did Dark Eyes at Lake Placid. Guess it just didn't feel right to them though and it got scrapped. I know a lot of people on the GP threads were talking about the lack of height difference, which didn't seem to be a problem until they hit senior. It's too bad.

I noted in the S/G thread that "Happy to Be Stuck with You" could be a delightfully ironic thread title, given all the nasty breakups this past spring.

Just to look at the scores make it pretty obvious about the US dance team pecking order at nationals:

1. D/W - 178.07 (Skate America);
2. the Shibs - 151.85 (NHK Trophy); and
3. Rest of the pack at around 130s.

In fact, there are four teams that earned 130s at international competitions. They are:
3a. 139.01 Hubbell/Donohue (Nebelhorn, 1st; 131.04 Skate America, 6th)
3b. 136.88 Chock/Bates (Finlandia; 135.10 Skate Canada, 4th; 130.94 TEB, 5th)
3c. 138.07 Kriengkrairut/Giulietti-Schmitt (Ice Challenge, 1st; 126.39 NHK Trophy, 6th)
3d. 134.88 Cannuscio/Lorello (Ice Challenge, 2nd; 115.22 Skate America. 7th)

Two other teams earned 130s at sectionals. They are:
3e. 136.86 Emily Samuelson/Todd Gilles P1
3f. 132.67 Anastasia Olson/Jordan Cowan P2.

To sum it all up, we have the gold and the silver pretty much expected to go to the top two teams, and the real dog fight for the bronze among more or less six teams I stated above.

Boy, I can't wait for nationals. Don't you?;)

I think H/D are really hot! They remind me of some of the teams of a couple years ago with all of their power and great chemistry. They have a great commercial look that would appeal to the casual skating fans.

I wish K/G-S would get bronze at US Nats but I have a feeling it's going to go to Chock/Bates..

I'm afraid that you might be right. I am, however, rooting for Hubbell/Donohue.

I really hope Lynn and Logan can somehow get the bronze at Nationals, but it's really a long shot at this point. Mistakes can happen, I guess, and Madison Chock is a notoriously headcasey skater. H/D are looking strong tho.

The run at the 3d spot for Worlds is going to be quite something to watch at Nats

Maybe the USFSA can send whichever team(s) loses out to 4CCs, just to 'spread the wealth' and give them a shot at another intl. comp., since so many of those teams gunning for 3d are roughly equal in ability to one another.

H/D are looking strong tho.She is? I haven't noticed that, at least in the past couple of seasons. She's seemed pretty consistent in comps. Her falls in their GPs this season were because Evan tripped/bumped into her. :confused:

I wouldn't label Madison Chock as a "headcasey" skater, either, much less a "notorious" one. I've watched her since juniors and she never seems nervous to me, in fact, I think her expression is usually pretty good.

I agree with both of these comments!
