    So far, Shibutani's are the only team I've managed to picture skating the YP.

    I could see W/P, Gilles/Poirier, Aldridge/Eaton, Samuelson/Gilles, Cappellini/Lanotte, Combes/Buckland pulling off the perk needed for this. But hey, some of the Chinese teams brought perk to the Latin dances so maybe even the Yankee Polka.

    What kind of music will be used? Zydeco Bluegrass? Americana? Polka? Tejano? Irish? Norteno?

    I have seen skaters who one would have thought were in great shape absolutely sputter on the quickness of the YP.

    REALLY????? Oh man, this will be priceless. I remember some pretty funny YP costumes a few seasons back. It'll be worth it for the costume voids alone.

    Just to whet everyone's whistle:
    Faeilla/Scali
    Virtue/Moir
    Belbin/Agosto
    Davis/White
    Samuelson/Bates (GREEEEEN!!!)
    Pechalat/Bourzat
    Domnina/Shabalin
    Zaretskis
    Fraser/Lukanin, who thought they were going to skate a Latin dance?
    Khoklova/Novitski
    Estonians who came from the circus
    Del/Schoen doing the slutty barmaid/cowboy shtick
    Zad/Verbillo, featuring Dayglo ice cream cones on the chest
    Hokey country/western from the Kerrs

    Oh my. Just THINK of the many ebullient possibilities!!

    Wheee! I love the YP.

    Both D&S teams in 2008 had great Yankee Polkas.

    Hilarious. Can't you see the conversations that could have happened around this...

    "I think the short dance concept is working!"
    "I don't"
    "Why, any compulsory dance could be turned into an unique and seamless short dance!"
    "Not true"
    "Name me a cd that won't work and THAT will be the pattern next season"
    "The Yankee Polka"

    Oh yes. Someone overlayed the "Oh Susanna" compulsory music to this clip and it works even better.

    I kind of like that O Susanna music -- does it meet the tech requirements?

    (Though I hope if any of the guys wear chaps that they don't have the weird fringe Schoen's had.)

    It's one SD that I hope a lot of teams will go with Polkabration! throughout, rather than polky waltzes.

    In 2003, it was polka, march, and waltz for the Grand Ball OD; that worked very well, I though.

    I hate the SDs as a concept... I miss the CDs! But still... a Yankee Polka SD could prove to be so awful, that it couldp provide us with lots, lots, lots of snarky commentary... which would be more entertaining than the SD itself!
