Really interested in ideas for the pattern dance part of the SDs for both junior (Blues) and senior (Yankee Polka). I am a bit obsessed with finding new music for patterns dances generally for our dance sessions. So fitting in with that I would love to know of what you could use for the Blues and YP.

I think this one would make a great YP

Gilles and Poirier have announced their short dance will be Mary Poppins.

My favourite blues piece is Three Hours Past Midnight by Colin James (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJuouUYdZxM), which was the SP music for Dube/Wolfe this year.

I think it would be amazing for a dance team.

That link is for the Team France K&C clip - which I'm guessing isn't what you had in mind?

Mary Poppins sounds promising... and I am sure some of the teams will be able to come up with creative ideas. Or at least, I hope so, or next year will be painful.

Sorry about that. This is the one I had in mind

I agree - I don't want pain.

One thing I do know-when they had the polka as an OD for 1992 Olympic season, both R&K and Duchesnays had to scrap their original dance & make a new one, R&K after they skated at Skate America.

Here's the disputed R&K polka and the discussion:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEbgbwhoO0Y#t=1m53s

The specs on the YP are:

Music - Polka 2/4
Tempo - 60 measures of 2 beats per minute
- 120 beats per minute

So, if I were picking music for the polka, I'd be careful that it was really a polka.

That said, there are a bunch of songs from Mexico done in polka rhythm that are sort of the Mexican version of gangster rap, called narco corridos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zjyDGnDUXs).

gangsta polka, if you will.

Here's the piece that started it, Contrabando & Traicion (Smuggling & Treachery) by los Tigros del Norte
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSNYaZXQud8

The girl ends up shooting the boy and running off with the money & dope.

Some pieces are other rhythms, but a lot of them are in polka rhythms.

It might be fun to do drug gang Mexicans skating to the polka.

One of my worst skating memories is having to sit through 26 yankee polkas at Euros in 2008. So I hate the Yankee Polka and I hate the SD. It's not looking good for me ;)
I hope in 13-14 it's tango!

Hey Doris that is really interesting. Thanks for posting those links. It would be interesting to see someone use that kind of music.

However I see your drug reference polka and raise you this one

I also want to see someone use some Weird Al polka next season too. This one's hilarious.

So what is it? I'm dying of curiosity.

I searched for the name and found another version of the video.

Not sure how well the song would work on its own.

Gilles and Poirier tweeted that they are using Mary Poppins for the SD.

I don't know which song...maybe Step in Time?

Meanwhile, here's the Orange Blossom special done as a polka

I don't care what team, but if someone skated to Weird Al, I would be their biggest fan FOREVER!

just wondering
