    [QUOTE=casken;3550424]I can tell I'm going to this thread.

    Except for 94-96 when the ISU made the mistake of restricting everyone to ballroom, the 90s were fabulous for dance. Not just the FDs either, the ODs were pretty great as well. I feel like ice dance started it's slow downward slide with the death of the single rhythm OD in 2000.

    You also have a whole decade of fabulous compulsory dances. I was watching G&P's tango CD from the 98 Olympics the other day and thinking how I've watched that one compulsory dance more than any program D&W have done ever.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    YES !. I was watching Pasha & Evgeny's OG Compulsory the other day too
    Oh, the good old day's. When dance was dance & we had the countries above each mark.
    The ISU have ruined Ice Dance.
    Usova & Zhulin's free dance at the 1992 Skate America is a real stand-out for me. Also the Rocca/Sur free at the 96' World's.
    Grishuk/Platov free at the 97' NHK Trophy.
    I love watching the events of the 90's on Youtube. I still miss the compulsory dance

    Duchesnay's - Reflection FD

    I know it wasn't very popular, but I at least love the attempt.

    It's my favorite FD of them, because Shanti's work is just amazing there. And it's sad they could never deliver it quite right

    My absolute favourite FD

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BxsSkL4ooU
    I loved the Euros performance but can't seem to find it anywhere
    For some strange reason,they won a 6.0 in the OD,the blues and then came into the FD in the first place and slipped into 3rd overall...And yes,it was the championship that the Duchesnay's won..

    So both Arena (Us-Zh choreographer) and Rushpaul came from ballet. Interesting! If anyone has more info on them or other creations of theirs, please post here!
    "Aria" is one of the rare programs that makes you cry without actually knowing why
    I once read that Rushpaul also choreographed Grishuk & Platov's 1993 FD (their blues dance).

    I'm probably in the minority but I absolutely love this FD (Grishuk & Platov at the 1992 Olympics). It's so tightly choreographed.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRlNzp_V35A

    It was so much more difficult than either the Duchesnays or Usova & Zhulin's programs. I personally would've given them the silver medal, especially since their OD was also a lot more difficult than said couples and Oksana Grishuk could actually do her choctaws (sp?) properly in the blues CD, something that Isabelle Duchesnay or Maia Usova couldn't do.

    I also miss the OSP. A lot of people deservedly love T&D's paso doble but I think Klimova & Ponomarenko's 1987 waltz OSP should be mentioned in the same breath. Such incredibly difficult choreography but they perform it with clinical ease, grace, and flow.

    Glad to see others like it too. Dubova's choreographer at the time (I can't remember her name) is incredible but it's rather disappointing that Usova & Zhulin's programs didn't have the same level of difficulty. And Dubova's couples became more and more disappointing as the 1990s went on. I think that perhaps after moving to the U.S, she stopped working with that choreographer (my apologies for referring to her as 'that' - I can't remember her name) she used to work with in the late 80s and early 90s.

    That's a stunning FD but their sloppy skating skills really ruin it IMO.

    Love love love it. The choreography is so interesting. Plus, it hides Isabelle's flaws.

    One more gem from G/P that was not mentioned yet, quickstep OD from 1995 Worlds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EqTmB96Jbk

    We are so robbed that we didn't have youtube and fans taping practices in those days, imagine having practice vids of T/D K/P U/Z G/P etc like we have now...
    Don't you find it worrying that doctors call treating you their "practice" ?

    This is definitely one of the greatest OD's of all time. Such close positions and intricate steps.

    Practice vids of Grishuk & Platov would definitely be interesting. They had a lot of fights during practice. I even heard rumours of yelling, screaming, face spitting, and even hitting. I have no idea if that's even remotely true though.

    Original set pattern where couples skated a set pattern of steps and repeated it.

    This thread is like a breath of fresh air considering how current ice dance sucks so much. Yeah, there are exceptions like Zlobina & Sitnikov's FD, but for the most part, blech.
