    The couple trains in Canada under David Islam, T.Myles and K. Johnson. Dmitry and Terra will work with Romain Haguenauer on their programs.

    Glad to see her back because her lines are so georgeous.
    She obviously maintained a good relationship with Romain after the drama with Richaud.
    What happened to Dun's previous partnership?

    Awww... I liked Agafonova&Dun, but they got seriously dumped at JGP this season. This new pairing could be at Euros since Ukraine has two spots in Dance. Have anyone heard of Beknazarova/Zuev, I thought maybe they retired too because they weren't even as alternates in the World Entries list.

    That's correct they are in Barrie. This is a welcome back for Terra as she did pairs and singles years ago as a young teenager at Mariposa.


    Romain has been asked to do one program. The coaching team in Barrie also includes Pavol Porac.

    I think Romain has been asked for one program, thus far, because the proposal of changes in the ISU still in the lymbo

    Great to hear about another hybrid couple, they are always fun

    Didn't Paul/Islam (who have the same coaching team in Barrie) also get a program from Haguenauer this season?

    Yes, she has skated singles, pairs (with John Mattatall) and dance (with Liam Dougherty in Canada & Benoit Richaud in France). To read all about her, check out her ISU biography with her last partner.

    I always liked them more than Zadorozhniuk/Verbillo, and I was wondering too this season.

    There are rumours that Anna Zadorozhnyuk retired because of the problems with the back. Vladimir Zuev retired too because of problems with knees. Beknazarova and Verbillo are trying to dance together. Maybe their coach will be Alexei Gorshkov. They say Alla and Sergey were seen in Odintsovo. Many years ago they already were partners.

    Kudos to Terra in being so persistent in finding a partner. She has certainly spent some time looking outside of Canada!
    Does anyone know where they are training? It appears to be in Canada.

    :)Thaks for posting that clip. when i heard about this pairing a few weeks ago, I was searching out clips of each with their former partners and imagining how they'd look together.:rolleyes:( oh, the off season.)

    This is much better.

    Sometimes skating reminds me of a favorite line from Kiss Me Kate: "We closed on the road in a little British make-shift of a Viennese operetta that for some reason was laid in Switzerland. But the costumes were Dutch."

    No problem! What are your initial impressions of the pairing?

    They both seem to have matching decent skating skills. :)

    :) I like their comparative heights..and it looks like they're going to be able to match lines OK. Love that spin when it doesn't topple over ...I'm thinking ( and I know I'm not a real expert ) that they show real possibilities..

    I a bit worried that she might be too tall for him but it's early days, we'll see how those lifts work out in competition.
