    I agree.

    Next thing you know everyone will have to skate to music like the Shibs had last year or they'll get the deduction.

    Such a stupid rule.

    I really hope that's not true. What are they going to do, scrap the whole thing and start over?

    I don't know if it would make a difference, but after watching the program a few times, I think it would benefit from having the first half and the second half switched around.

    Did you guys realize this? I didn't:

    Under the ISU Rules, as we understand them, the music must be selected so that if there is any story or theme in the routine it has to be clearly understandable to the audience and the music must have an uplifting effect. Skater's are required to submit a Form describing the theme of their Free Dance in 30 characters or less, including spaces and punctuation. Alex and Daniel's theme to Lord of the Dance, is "Celebration of Life & Freedom" (29 Characters).
    Maybe Nelli and Alexander didn't complete their fill in the blanks test for the FD?

    I can't believe the ISU is getting this rinky dink, and I hope this is only true in juniors.

    This is the Ice Dance music form and it has been around for a while. The ice dancers need to include the rhythms they use for the short dance and the short description of the free dance is needed for putting it on to the scoreboard (hence the maximum of 30 characters). I don't think that you get penalized when you don't fill into the form.

    The problem with these majority decisions is that you never know when you might get it. The whole music rule is ridiculous anyway.


    ISU better change this rule fast before some very serious PR backlash.

    iii) All music including classical music must be cut/edited, orchestrated or arranged in a way that it creates an interesting, colorful, entertaining dance program with different dance moods or a building effect.
    Doesn't some of this go w/o saying? Are there dance teams that don't want to be interesting?

    Alas, sometimes it seems so.

    what a promising start and disappointing ending.
    she got good goes at her two spins; 2 jumps look solid, nice pcs; seems she just didn´t hold it together, sad.

    4th place finish for koch/nüchtern, great result!

    hedwig & dytrt

    yes, she could have had a great career, but i thought, that the german fedaration supported her until 2010 (and even there is a great doubt about the support in the olympic season and a lot of misunderstandings in qualification rules); i think after the olympics, the germans said all their eyes on sarah hecken, who indeed delivered nice programs, but couldn´t match dytrt in pcs by far.
    all could have changed if hecken managed to get a second spot at euros, so they could have fight for the worlds spot there; but without that second spot, dytrt know in my opinion, that there will be no future for her.
    we saw the egrman federation acting with its favourites (f.e. zhiganshina/gaszi vs. hermann/hermann)

    Hi- waves - yes, I think you are right about the support from the German fed. They were fed up with her (sorry for the pun ). A pity. Sarah Hecken is a huge talent but she has yet to wow me with her programs...

    And don't remind me about the Z/G situation. I am still about that.

    If there's any justice in the world (well, there's none but one can hope), Nelli will get German citizenship before Sochi.

    Can't they get married to speed up the process? Pretty please?

    If she doesn't, even I will offer to marry her to speed up the process just to rub in to the German Fed how stupid they were (and to let them compete of course )

    She changed clubs to Oberstdorf last season and now represents Bavaria nationally. I think this was a very smart move. I have a feeling in the immigration office in Bavaria seems to be less painful than the one in Berlin.

    She can apply for German citizenship after three years of marriage. Previously it was always like that.

    Thanks.
    Sadly both videos are blocked on German youtube. I hate the music regulations rules in this country.

    The translation for the FP is "Pina - dance, dance, otherwise we are lost" Probably film music from the movie about Pina Bausch. ?

    Thanks, la.louise. Both programmes look very promising. I do wish they would change the SP costumes. I do love them occasionally going OTT -especially when they're doing fun programmes but here their costumes simply don't fit in.

    Hedwig, you might want to try watching it via hidemyass.com
