    I kind of like the Go Carmen Go! (How do you say that in Russian?) But I think more people prefer the other.

    Still, Vamos Señor and and Señorita Carmen Vamos! :D

    Why? Will they dance to this music? :) Any title is okay by me really. Regarding the SD lift, if they were going to change, my guess is that they will probably do it after this GPF when they have a longer break. Just like like last year when they did some major SD overhaul during the holiday break.

    Lovely pics as usual from that gallery. These Russian photographers are really spoiling us. Not complaining though.

    Dance me to your beauty with a
    burning violin
    Dance me through the panic 'til
    I'm gathered safely in
    Lift me like an olive branch and
    be my homeward dove
    Dance me to the end of love,
    dance me to the end of love
    Oh let me see your beauty when
    the witnesses are gone
    Let me feel you moving like they
    do in Babylon
    Show me slowly what I only
    know the limits of
    Oh dance me to the end of love,
    dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the wedding now,
    dance me on and on
    Dance me very tenderly and
    dance me very long
    We're both of us beneath our
    love, we're both of us above
    Dance me to the end of love,
    dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the children who
    are asking to be born
    Dance me through the curtains
    that our kisses have outworn
    Raise a tent of shelter now,
    though every thread is torn
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to your beauty with a
    burning violin
    Dance me through the panic till
    I'm gathered safely in
    Touch me with your naked hand
    or touch me with your glove
    Dance me to the end of love,
    dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to the end of love it is !

    It evokes that lovely feel of the SD - the above ^^gives me the shivers it is so beautiful.

    Every picture of T&S portrays their marvellous line. It is as though they have posed for each picture, so perfect they are in form and substance. What a gift we have in them.....

    Could be!

    BTW thanks for your link upthread to the commentary on Hallelujah. Very interesting. A couple of days ago Cohen performed at the ACC in Toronto, age 78.

    Those pics are breathtaking. Those Russian photographers certainly know what they are doing and show off Tessa and Scott's beautiful lines and posture to the utmost. Love her practice outfits as it makes it so easy to see the beautiful lines they conceive.

    "Dance Me to the End of Love".......is perfect and has my approval as well (It was one of the songs my BF sent to me when we were in a long distance relationship :)), and is perfect for this next threat title.

    Good luck to Tessa and Scott.........may they skate to their potential and reap the rewards.

    I emailed Aislie that they should name a body suit after Tessa and that they should sponsor her going into the Olys....

    Looking at M/C and then at T/S it is easy to believe that M/C really don't like ballet (I think it was M who made this comment in a recent article). At 2007 WCh Brits said skaters like to make picture perfect opportunities and that T/S are perfect all the time for photos. These photos :swoon: I, too, really would like "Dance Me to the End of Love" words are beautiful and appropriate.

    This. In pictures, you can CLEARLY see the big gap. Yes, I agree with Carmen and those who think there is a big gap between both. Even if that's not reflected on the scores.

    That's a gorgeous title.

    Including Meryl and Charlie in the "Russian ice-dance school", simply because of their speed and dramatic expression, just shows how clueless Di Manno is. If there is one team currently skating that has the trademarks of the classical Russian style - balletic lines, toe-point, elegance, soft knees - it's V/M.

    Still, we should be thankful she didn't put words in their mouth like she did with Patrick Chan in yesterday's article about Plushenko. All skaters should just stay away from that woman...:scream:

    Yes,I found that argument very strange,too. V/M have a lot of the qualities that the great Russian dance teams had (like you mentioned).I have always found D/W to have a very American style with programs that are very easy to understand,whereas V/M have more intellectual programs,that make you think.

    Well, I'd be in bliss if they ever used Dance Me To The End Of Love for their Ex.

    Couldn't agree more that I really don't see what she is talking about. The only thing I can guess is that D&W skate the type of program that was very popular during A&P's reign and she was Russian ;) It's even more amusing considering there is a video lying around somewhere of Meryl specifically discussing how the Russian style of ice dance was once very dominant but that they are bringing a North American style to the forefront (grossly paraphrased but I'm sure everyone knows the interview I'm thinking of).

    DiManno is awful. It's a shame she's one of the key reporters for this event. I want to keep updated, but I can't stand her writing. I also never know if her "quotes" are real, or just stuff she's made up for dramatic effect.

    I was looking at the Lizabet photos again., and looking at 23 especially, you can see that the proportion 0f their legs and torsos are almost identical. This, with the small difference in height and complete synchronicity, is IMO why they are so aesthetically pleasing to the eye. :kickass: :smokin: :swoon:

    A short comment from FSU-er Finnice who attended today's practice: Tessa and Scott were very commanding.
    Sounds good to me.:)

    ETA: Watch this clip from today's Junior competition - the background at 1:42. T&S will love this at tomorrow's practice.:)

    Geez. Dimanno is clueless. V/M like British ice dancing? Meryl and Charlie as Russian? I don't know what she's been watching. I reallly dislike her articles. Why the heck did she also write one about holding hands in pairs skating? That was silly. Some things that she writes I like, but then other things she says are just so wrong and not at all what I see.

    Looking foward to some great skating tomorrow!!!

    At first I thought she was trying to diss D&W because she's describing the Russian school as "aggressive and flamboyant" basically saying what a lot of people think about the Russian ice dancers that they're all speed, hand waving, and facial expressions, while T&D "really danced." I think that's ridiculous, but I've heard a lot of people saying that about Russian ice dancers with the possible exception of K&P. Then she goes on to say that the Russians bring ballet to the ice, which I can't imagine being a bad thing, but who knows what she means.

    Does Dimanno get expenses paid to go to Sochi and cover the event?

    She really is terrible. Surely there was someone who is better informed about the sport they're covering, not to mention that can write as an objective journalist and not a tabloid writer. :p
