Canadians are just around the corner.
ice-dance.com has opened a really impressive site for the upcoming national championship. Included is an extensive profile on Paul/Islam (and every other team in novice, junior or senior). The profile states that Alexandra did in fact have surgery after her accident at NHK.
I'm so hoping to see them looking more like themselves next week.
All appendages crossed.
I came across these on youtube today, and I thought I would share. I had honestly forgotten these existed at all. The links are for P/I's CD and OD from the 2010 Junior Nationals (as far as I can tell...they may have been from Canadian Challenge). Enjoy!
Here's another version of their FD from the 09/10 season. It's from one of their JGP's.
Also, CBC Sports has put up a preview video for nationals next week. PJ Kwong talks about ice dance near the end of it. She said that she spoke to Mitchell, and that he told her that he and Alexandra are 100% healthy! That should set them up well for next weekend! 5 more days!!
Anyone happen to know if/when the senior dance practices will be broadcast on SkateBuzz??
I just hope it's not a case of , first they give you a treat ,then they snatch it away... In the absence of any real information , I'm just planning to go there at the scheduled practice times, and cross my fingers...
I think we might be out of luck. I believe there was a senior dance practice this afternoon, and Skatebuzz didn't show any of it. I guess we'll just have to wait until Friday to see P/I and the others.
They may only be showing main arena practices (i.e. no cameras in operation at the practice rink).
Sorry to go off topic, but I just finished watching jr dance and I was really impressed and happy for Poulin/Servant, who won after finishing 5th in 2010 and 4th last year (I've been a fan of theirs since the beginning). Did anyone happen to catch it?
There's a discussion in the Canadian Nationals sub-forum in Kiss and Cry.

I checked out skatebuzz..and today they were showing practices from the main arena. I'm on the pacific coast but I will definitely get up for the dance practice ( SD ) 7 am Pt, 11am AT.
LOVED the new choreography. A lot. They looked SOO much better than they have during the seaon. Shame about the placement, though. It seemed that it was the technical levels that got them in the end. Still within striking distance of R/H, but they've got some work to do.
I love the fact that they no longer look like V/M clones, but are developing their own style.
Maybe they never really were clones, but they certainly looked like it to me in the past. With this short dance I can start to appreciate them for their own selves, as the very good ice dancers that they are.
