Me too. And some problems on 1st section of twizzles. But I should rewatch.

Tessa is down on one knee and bobbles ever so slightly before they enter the spin. It is so tiny and the only reason I noticed is because Brit Eurosport had a slow motion clip of that section. not something to deduct for, imo. I didn't notice it on the live stream nor did I catch it on the HD version that night. Again, I think these bobbles are probably more common than we realize in elite-level cometitive skating--we just don't catch it in real time because they are split-second things.

both V&M and D&W had little problems on their twizzles (it seems like the male partners were to blame;) ). I'm guessing V&M were marked down for it because their GOEs were good but not stellar (mostly +2s, one +3, one +1) and D&W received GOEs of +3s from 5 of the 9 judges and +2s from the rest...this is why I am not convinced that the panel of judges was out to get D&W.

loving these music suggestions. thanks for contacting skate canada, walei!

Loved Pink Floyd. Along a similar vein I want them to an ice dance take on Antares. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Tcy--wXe5w

I've been listening to all the suggestions that people have been making and it lead me to remember this song by Delerium featuring Sarah Mclachlan called Silence. Here's the link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PPC7s2_Qh8

The song really kicks in with the magic of her vocals from about the 3:00 mark and its that bit especially that would just make me :swoon: if Tessa and Scott were skating to it. I think they could express this music so beautifully. They're so versatile that I spend most of the day hearing songs and think 'yep, they'd be awesome skating to this' :lol:

Yep....I like that one. It does have a nice beat to it.....shades of
"Enigma" with the Gregorian chant interspersed. Very fitting for London too.

I love this with all my heart. They would knock it out of the park.

:40beers:


It's funny you should mention the Shibutanis cuz I've been imagining them doing a whimsical program to forbidden friendship (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CJ96LGGP6w), from how to train your dragon lol.

Very suitable and interesting choice! :) It is good that dance could be different from their ball-room pure style which I like.

Good for them to party down....they earning it....and were behaving like exhuberant young people......at least they tuned it down when warned. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall at that place lol.

A big yes to a unique compositions and/or original arrangements (like Klimova & Ponamerenko and Torvill & Dean). That said, if they're going to continue using music from "the greats" (like Farrucas from G&G), I think they're the few ice dancers who would do justice for Tragically Hip's Antares. (For me it's either them or Jeff Buttle who would be able to effectively use the music these days.)

Coming hot off their big win, the local ice dancers will be coming to London on Tuesday (April 10) to participate in an information session for local businesses aimed at letting them know how they can become part of the 2013 International Skating Union World Figure Skating Championships when the event comes to London. The breakfast will be held at the London Convention Centre from 7:30 to 9 a.m.

if you have any photos from worlds that you would like me to put on my blog, just send them to me via pm. the photo section (http://compulsorydances.blogspot.ca/2012/01/gallery-for-spring-championships.html) for worlds is rather small. the news section and video section are overflowing, but the photos... not so much.

thanks for any submissions!
