    I can't remember if it was a dance team or a pair team but it is an older team that skated a ballet themed program ie..they were stretching at a bar etc...

    Can't remember anything more about it. Was just thinking about it randomly but can't seem to find it again. I figure someone out there knows what I'm talking about.

    Thanks.:)

    Are you perhaps thinking of this program from Klimova & Ponamarenko? (And if not, it's one of my favourite programs, so worth a watch anyway :))

    One of the greatest EX's ever, IMO.
    Too bad the version with Toller Cranston's commentary doesn't seem to be available on YouTube.

    Klimova & Ponomarenko are just the greatest ice dance team ever imo.

    Didn't Shishkova and Naumov also start an exhibition number like that? Of course Vadim was wearing a tutu to get the point across.

    Didn't Virtue & Moir do a similar number not that long ago too? I remembered they had the ballet bar and they used the Spring Sonata by Beethoven, I think

    I had never seen that before so thank you so much for posting. Really beautiful skating and interpretation. And the posture and leg line were gorgeous.

    Totally agree. They were so perfect every moment....postures, lines, unison, clean skating, and emotion. Marina Klimova is one of the most beautiful ice dancer lady ever (Anjelika Krylova may be a close second). Sergei was a perfect partner.

    You all made me go watch their Romeo & Juliet program again. I hadn't seen it in years, and the last minute still brought tears to my eyes. :swoon:

    My most favorite K&P number may be their pro Tchaikovsky's 5th symphony, skated with a long black scarft. They got ALL 10.0's (tech & artistic- total 14 of them) for that number when they skated it for the first time.

    (Sorry for making this like a K&P thread).

    Here it is, for those who may not have had the privilege.
    The debut of this amazing program:

    Totally awesome! In this case the fourteen 10.0's were totally deserved. I have watched it on my tapes numerous times, but hadn't done so in a few years. Thanks for posting the link.

    This is purely my opinion, but I think - with apologies to Torville & Dean who were magnificent ice dancers as well- Klimova & Ponomarenko were the best pure ice dancers ever. Their edges, turns, lines, musicality were unmatched.
