    Thanks so much for posting the interview. Very interesting to hear her thoughts and also about her injury. Her and Pasquale I think are going to be the next great dance coaching team. They have done a great job with our Australian dance team Dani and Greg who have improved so much over the last 12 months.

    - You say, Russian school, English school... And what style do you teach your athletes?

    - Of course, Russian, as we were taught. Basics are all ours. I think it's ice dance perfection – edges, stroking, body carriage, beauty. Of course, I want to see it. And when I do not see it, I get angry. And the athletes understand.
    Thank you! Keep getting angry Anjelica, and passing on that wonderful knowledge.

    Thank you for the translation and I really love Krylova as a coach!

    It is a bit sad that Krylova obviously loves Ice Dance but is currently disenchanted by the current scoring rules. Hope she can come up with a way to give her students programs that transcends just doing the elements and bring out the beauty she is looking for.

    But I really would like to see Russian ice dancers on top of the podium. And the sooner the better.
    I didn't realize Krylova was training Russian skaters. Oh, wait. I mean, really? She'd rather have Russian skaters win over her own skaters? And even if she ends up with a Russian couple, then P&R and W&P are gonna get gypped.

    That is rather presumptive isn't it to make that assumption?

    It's not just you. It's a cultural thing. Political correctness really isn't a Russian concept. Make mealy-mouthed answers and people will call BS on you to your face. Personally I love it.

    Anjelika is perfect, and "I want beauty" is going to be my new catchphrase hehe.

    Who are P&R?

    If you look at the whole interview and not just one sentence, she makes it very clear what she thinks Russian skaters used to bring to ice dance in terms of technique and "beauty". She thinks this is missing now and wants it to come back. And so do I.

    ^ I liked B&S's FD too.

    Watched some of her old performances after reading this interview and agree with some of it but not all of it.

    I think their is still a great deal of development that needs to occur with CoP but I think that it is coming along. Like anything, it will take time. Mahler from V&M was a thing of beauty and that was in CoP. The potential is there... somehow I think that K&C will bring ice dance into that direction. I was worried that after V&M, D&W, I wouldn't have anyone to really cheer for but Weaver & Poje are absolutely amazing. I really look forward to the work they will do with them. I am also interested to see what P&B will be doing the next couple of seasons as well.

    Why? There was major and when Zoueva said that Virtue/Moir were the most talented dancers and her favorites and what that meant for Davis/White. When someone says that they wish someone would bypass her own students, currently #3 and #4 in the world, to the top of the podium, I think those are grounds enough to raise the question.

    Like those qualities are now embodied by the current crop of Russian dancers? Like the current crop of Russian dancers with those qualities are being held back by the Shpilband/Zoeva cartel?

    If she had said, "I'm trying to instill these qualities in my students, and the sooner skaters with these qualities get to the top of the podium, the better" rather than the sooner Russians get to the top of podium the better, then what you say would make sense. But she didn't.

    Lovely interview, thanks so much for the translation. I love that Angelina is so focused on basics and on bringing what made RUssian ice dance of bygone days so good back to the ice.

    Anjelika is so beautiful. It's only natural for her to want beauty.

    I loved K&O. I was so disappointed that they had to retire early due to Anjelika's injury.

    I said those qualities are "missing". Obviously, if the current crop of Russian ice dancers had them, they would not be missing.

    Anjelika clearly says that for her V/M are the top team now. So I don't know how you are reading this as the Russians being held back by the Shpilband cartel.

    However, I know that where figure skating is concerned, the word "Russian" rubs people the wrong way. So however PC she was, she cannot be right.

    Why would she want the Russians to get to the top of the podium as quickly as possible if they don't embody the qualities she admires?

    If they had those qualities, but they were being held down because the qualities that Spilband/Zoueva teams have are in fashion, that would be one thing, but why should couples who don't have them be any higher on the podium than 1. S/Z teams 2. Teams that she's trained that have absorbed at least some of these qualities?

    That would be like me saying that the qualities I most admire in Ladies skating are shown by Suzuki and Kostner, but, damn, I wish Rachel Flatt would get to the top of the podium ASAP! Or Slutskaya and Leonova have the qualities I most admire in Ladies skating, but, damn, I wish Alissa Czisny would get to the top of the podium ASAP!
