    Dance:
    Torvil/Dean (far away from others, but all teams in free order :))
    Virtue-Moir
    Klimova & Ponomarenko
    Grishuk & Platov
    Silvershtein-Pekarek (i know, they didnt show big results, but i think if they didnt split, they could be OGM)
    Rahkamo/Kokko
    Bourne/Kraatz
    Bestemianova & Bukin
    Krylova/Ovsiannikov
    Pahomova-Gorshkov - maybe they must be first in this list, because they were pure dance on ice :)

    And some speciall honor^
    Dusheney - for there creativity, but she was poor skater, so thats why they are not in my list, but i remember a lot of there programs;
    Usova-Zhulin, Annenko & Stretenski - because all dancer from USSR from that time show such a high ice skating and dancing level;
    Drobiazko & Vanagas, Denkova & Stavisky - because they was from small countries and could take medals at WCh.
    Anissina & Peizerat - because they was first, who took gold from Soviet/Russians ice dancers after T-D
    Delobel/Schoenfelder - because they could take more medals at WChs
    Fusar-Poli & Margaglio - because she was a reall dancer and passion, but he was poor skater and i couldnt chose them at top 10 list.
    So maybe i need to choose 20 best in ice dance :D
    O, i forget Faella-Scally and Kerrs.

    Pairs:
    Gordeeva/Grinkov
    Kozakova/ Dmitriev (or Dmitriev with any patner :D)
    Shen/Zhao
    Savchenko & Szolkowy
    Rodnina & Zaitsev (Ulanova)
    Belousova-Protopopov
    Sale/Pelletier

    I haven't been that much into pairs, it's slowly changing now, but I'd still not be able to figure out a list of my 10 favourites. Instead, I can give you 4:

    Savchenko/Szolkowy
    Volosozhar/Trankov
    Berezhnaya/Sikharulidze
    Siudek/Siudek (also known as Zagorska/Siudek)

    In dance the situation is reversed, I have plenty of teams I've liked over the years, but I can give you 5 that are very, very close to my heart, for different reasons:

    1. Drobiazko/Vanagas
    2. Davis/White
    3. Delobel/Schoenfelder
    (lol I seem to have a strange liking for teams with the girl's name starting with a D ;))
    4. Kerr/Kerr
    5. Anissina/Peizerat
