Maybe D/W's FD is to a piece called "TBD?" :P


Kudos to Charlie's split, too.

Yeah, I gotta give him credit. I couldn't do a split even as a child. I'm equal parts impressed and cringing from Evan Bates dropping into a split. Ouch.

And maintaining the position while various people jumped over his head. :lol:

That's an early practice video (1st one of 3) of a run-through of their Polovtsian Dances FD from the 2006-07 season, right? There was some discussion about it here earlier in this thread :): http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=3619617#post3619617

There's a shot of Meryl and another national champions' group shot from yesterday in this Tuesday at Champs Camp gallery: http://web.icenetwork.com/photos/gallery.jsp?content_id=37145750

Since the music news is nowhere in sight, here's some entertainment from the Shibs instead :lol: This is probably all we will get from Champs Camp :D

Thanks so much for these, Piper, Sylvia, and mollymgr! I love the Shibs vids so much! I can't stop watching them! I really like the shot of Meryl and Maia--they seem to have a special connection.


So did they pick their clothes, or were the clothes provided? I thought the "couple-y" pictures where Meryl's shirt said "We Are Young, But It's Real" were odd, especially in light of this quote:



http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/11/fashion/meryl-davis-and-charlie-white-seek-olympic-gold-in-russia-in-2014-will-endorsements-follow.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all

I really liked that quote of Meryl's because it seemed like she wasn't going to let the figure skating media/world force them to look like a couple just because that's the most expedient thing to do in ice dancing (if you're aren't siblings). I know it's not a big deal, but I thought it was cool that D/W were trying to buck that trend. These pics don't really jive with that.

Otherwise, thanks for the link!

Yeah, I see your point. They aren't my fave photos of them as they seem a bit uncomfortable, but I love the ballroom ones! I also really like the one in the article you linked to. I know I said that before and ppl probably thought I was crazy, but I like it cuz it is adorably awkward, like the photographer caught them at a moment when they were trying to converse and look natural at the same time but were still like, "ummm, yeah, this feels funny when there's a camera right there." I also love that colour on Meryl. so happy we're getting these fun vids and pics!

Hoping that one is their new FD! It will probably be DF and Bollywood ;)

...or DF and Adele…not sure what program they did last year. I don't really recall any reports coming out of Sun Valley in the past years.

Thanks! I hope we get a vid and/or reports! Do you think they might do their SD? I am almost as excited to see that as I am their FD. They are so awesome at polka and Meryl loves it so much!

I hope they do their SD but I'd be a little surprised if they did.

I, too, am very very excited about this year's SD. It suits Meryl and Charlie perfectly -- both in skating style and in temperament/on-ice personality. I never did truly warm up to their Latin SD last year (not really their fault ... I didn't warm up to anyone's SD) so I'm hopeful that this year will be different!

Yeah, I didn't like any SDs last year. I love Meryl and Charlie so I enjoyed watching them but I really don't think latin translates on the ice at all. I'm WAY more excited for Polka. Although I'm sure there will be about 4 songs that half the field uses once again.

I'm looking forward to the polka! I can't wait to see what teams come up with.

I'm more :blah: that Jr. teams are mostly using swing as the second style. I am very weary of swing style music and choreography. I'm loving the teams that chose hip hop, although there was a team at Courcheval that was a bit :yikes: It's just nice to see something different!!

Watch starting 1:07 in the Hula Hoop - I think that Kustarova choreographed the routine

I am new here. I wanted to say Davis and White are the best ice dancers in world.

Thank you! I love this dance so much, I can never have enough of it.
I also love DF, but I hope they'll make new EX.)

Tessa and Scott are going to Finlandia Trophy - I suppose, the last hope to see Meryl and Charlie before GP is lost.
