Charlie's off-season cut isn't as drastic as usual.
I bet he's had to keep it long for the Olympic photographs or something.
Meryl and Adam looking adorable.
I noticed...and I LIKE it! I wonder if this means a dramatic FD, unless having longer hair is growing on him.
Delurking finally because...OMG so excited!!
Derek Hough is going to choreograph their Olympic FD!!
That is so cool! But are we sure it's the FD? It just says one of their olympic routines. Either way, this is exciting news
Oops, Whitney you are correct. In my excitement I just assumed it was the FD. It very well
could be the SD. Derek + finnstep would go very nicely together.
Either way, it will be great, of that I am sure. Derek is my favorite dancer AND choreographer
on DWTS. And Meryl and Charlie are my fav skaters so this is a dream come true! <3
Also...what move do we think M/C taught him? I'm assuming a lift. I'll be tuning
in Monday night to see if I recognize anything in their routine.
Exciting news, indeed. I bet it's for the SD. Great to know they are wasting no time in preparations. I bet it will be complete by end of Spring.
That is great news! Derek does fantastic choreography on DWTS. His work fits their style perfectly!
Derek is fabulous!! I'd love to see M&C in the audience at DWTS.
Very exciting! Can't wait till we hear more!
That's exciting news! He does great choreo on DWTS so i'm looking forward to seeing how that translates to the ice.
at their image under "For Quality Sleep." I never thought of them as dull and sleep inducing. . .
I think it got lost in translation. The person who originally linked it provided some additional clarification.
Nevertheless, I'm happy that they are loved in Japan. Ice dance hardly ever gets any publicity in US newspapers.
Very excited about Derek Hough doing choreo for them
I'm thrilled that Derek Hough is working with them for the Olympic season! I too am expecting it to be for the Finnstep, what a great choice. I'm expecting a lot. Hopefully the choreography is just as special (and creative!) for the FD.
OMG You do not know how much I LOVE him! I'm so excited, more excited, if that's even possible !!!
I admit I had to go do my research on him.
Came across this video of him doing a foxtrot.
I'm excited now. His choreography is awesome!!
From Derek's twitter:
Funny how V/M fans storm and comment about V/M.
I'm pretty sure Derek has no clue who V/M are
Hopefully,Maybe, Possibly just possibly...Derek can post practice videos of them.
But I'm not counting on it.
Saw this link on Goldenskate:
It is a breakdown of the Finnstep featuring Meryl and Charlie.
Alex Wong is working with them, too.
Double amazing! They've been busy.
Ooo, excited! D/W are getting a lot done this week.
Yay! I can't wait for music news.
I'm so excited! I feel like it's suddenly August and we're about to get all of these announcements and pictures from Champs Camp.
thanks, so interesting to watch with the key points highlighted. Got to be a tough job as technical specialist!
!!! I was so hoping for that! Oh, I can't wait to see their programs. Is it really only April?
And another choreographer!
I think Elena Grinenko also helped them with their latin SD, as well. I'm really excited to see the outcome of all this
The same youtuber who posted the key points of the Finnstep also posted a video comparing nearly all the current skaters who were around to compete the Finnstep they only time it was used at 4CC's & Euros. (D&W, V&M, W&P, C&L, and P&B)
Choreographers raining from the sky!
Does this mean Marina will have little input this year?
Well, she will be scheduling when the choreographers come in so that they don't trip on each other
Local Michigan article about their Worlds win: http://www.theoaklandpress.com/articles/2013/04/21/news/local_news/doc517192af7907e887913780.txt
I doubt it. Marina would have to be a primary contributor and collaborator for both programs. The dancers will most likely bring ideas about music, concept, upper body shapes, in place moves at beginning or end, and performance. They will have no idea about skating technique and what will earn technical points. Marina would need to set the bones of the program elements and then the dancer/choreographer would fill in with "art."
I think Meryl and Charlie as well as V/M have been smart about using that way of creating programs in the past. Even Weaver and Poje's FD last year had to go about drastic re-work and translation from Allison Holker's original "vision" into an actual workable competitive ice dance program. Their coach was a 50% or even more partner in that process.
But it is super exciting that they're getting all this new input. One of my favorite things about Meryl and Charlie is their love of learning and how they always bring in new "teachers" to learn from. Derek especially is a gifted performer on top of being really great at conceptualizing tv-friendly dances.
Let them have the strength! I'm too selfish to let them go!
Me, too! I would love it if they are still around for nationals 2015, its in Greensboro again which means I can likely go again! Course I would LOVE to go to nationals this season because Olympic season is so exciting, but I doubt I will be able to swing that. I'm seriously thinking of Skate America, though. Sigh, always the money issue...maybe I'll buy me some lottery tickets, lol!
I love the feeling I'm getting that they are really ready to go for the gold in Sochi and they are probably training to be the best they can be yet. Course they always do that every season and it amazes me that they continue to top themselves. I'm so excited to know their music and to see what the choreographers have come up with for them!
If Boston were to land the 2016 worlds, it would be awesome if they were still around to compete in one more home worlds (and win ).
With all the news about the choreographers they're working, I'm getting really excited for the upcoming season. I wonder when we'll hear news about music?
I was kind of disappointed they opt out of WTT AND The Ice in Japan. But I guess this is way more important.
Good for them for working outside the box once more. But I reallllllllly want to see Deriek's contribution to the SD. He is like on the top of his game in dancing and I truly believe that they can come up with something Ahmaaaazing. I'll stop rambling now.
Meryl just re-tweeted Dorothy Hamill's tweet:
"Fun times at the show with @kristiyamaguchi @CharlieaWhite @Meryl_Davis http://pic.twitter.com/IeaYlYwjsh "
