The Juniors can include Hip Hop in their SD's as indicated in the IceNetwork article below. The skaters have to check the lyrics for obscenities...can't wait for that!

For the Seniors, the Yankee Polka can be combined with any style of Polka, March or Waltz rhythm

The 2013/2014 senior dance is the Finnstep.

Any chance you can edit "Short Dance" into your thread title? :)

ETA: Thanks for doing it!

I've only seen one skater manage to do hip hop on ice well - Daisuke Takahashi. The others I've seen haven't just been bad, they've been awful. This should be... interesting.

If anyone's seen any actual good hip hop on ice, and could provide a link, I'd be grateful. Because most of the stuff I've seen has been horrible.

Never saw that before, too bad I couldn't have kept it that way.:scream:

Looking forward to lots of music deductions.

Although how do they handle the use of the word "pussy" in a hip hop song?

Only allowed if skaters are costumed as Cats.

memo to Camerlengo et al: keep Massimo far far away from Juniors doing Hip Hop.

I don't know which will be more campy: Junior doing hip-hop or Seniors doing polka.

Sounds horrendous. :lol: And yet, I am disappointed it's just juniors. :P

Waltz is an option next year again? Hopefully the dances will evoke the "Memories of a Grand Ball" OD from 2003, which I loved (I know that's an unpopular opinion).

Finnstep for the Olympics sounds decent.

So will we get any comments that these dances were chosen to favor Davis & White, like when some people thought the choice of tango in Vancouver was rigged for DomShabs? :P

No one will be able to do hip hop as well as the queen. :glamor: :drama: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm1Fo0dH-9c

This is perfect news. :swoon:

Hiphop, swing and blues for juniors next season? :kickass:

And Yankee Polka for seniors AND then Finnstep for the Olympic season? Absolutely perfect. :kickass:

The only :scream: was the part about waltz going together with Yankee Polka. I pray most teams will just stick with the polka.
