    thank you, ice princess! too bad they took out the champagne hands detail at the end of the midline step sequence. small detail, but added immensely to the character and tone of the dance

    Hmmm I hope they have a new outfit for the SD. The 2011 SD versions are elegant and they have only wore it twice in that season but I rather see something new.

    Thanks to everyone for posting video links. I love you all, haha. And a super huge thanks to those taking the video! :D Two things: (1) love the new lift (2) YAY! They kept that awesome ending pose!

    I'm currently live streaming the Nepela short dances, and I stick by my comment that I overall hate the SDs. (Full disclosure, I am watching those practice vids of v/m in between the teams. A league of their own isn't even strong enough!!) :( P/B will show theirs later today, maybe it'll be entertaining? (I love Fosse!)

    Did anyone ever find a link to live streaming of Finlandia for today? The ones I have don't start until tomorrow!

    Yes! Thank you for those links, Ice Princess,m_chenning&bmcg! Made my day...:)
    Love the lift (reminds me of Funny Face last rotational lift - which I liked)...more "open and free" than the first one (not bad...just felt more "closed" to be in such an jazzy music)...and yay! More pep. I feel this pattern seq. Can't wait to see the full routine in competition :cheer2:

    Just love the change to the last spin and soooooooooooooo glad they kept the "faux" ending and the real ending -- cheek to cheek!

    Nope. All of those links are SD practice. :)

    Guess I'll be the dissenter? I don't think that lift fits the program, because it's too acrobatic. I'm wondering if there's a more "cool jazz" lift they might have done in the past. Or maybe they're still working on a new one, and it's not ready yet?

    I wanna say that, while I like the change (at this point--or any point, really--OBVIOUSLY judges don't care about lifts or twizzles or any element fitting the nature of the dance), I wonder if they will ever use the lift for the waltz in 2011, remember it? I think that one would fit beautifully? Again, I do like the change because I prefer this lift over the other one.

    Also, I think it is wise of them to reuse lifts in the short because, hey, recycling seems to work very effectively of late for other teams.

    I think they'll choose to debut new costumes at Skate Canada.

    I think that's the nature of beast that is the SD. There is so much teams have to put in there in the allotted time that often the lifts look thrown in. It´s get it done and rack up those points. Sort of like the spins in the FD. Are there any teams with a lift in their SD this season that isn't acrobatic? I haven't watched many and can't remember the ones I watched. One lift I think would suit the SD rhythms this year is this one:
    http://www.bing.com/images/search?q...0971410E16A4ABE90126508F818B&selectedIndex=18

    But a team like V&M can´t come out and do that, they would be crucified. As it stands I think this lift suits better the SD over the previous one, the entrance to this one is more in line with the theme imo.

    They're using petit adagio by glazunov, waltz in concerto no 2 by glazunov and allegro moderato by scriabin for the fd.

    I don't think that lift from 2011 is dynamic enough.

    I totally agree with you. I don't like the lift in the program, doesn't fit the music. The other worked better, but I guess they should not use it again.

    I'm watching the opening number, but I'm not getting any sound. Is anyone else having this problem?! (Or is it just my computer?)
