P/G Free Dance day 3
I thought this program was well paced... I identified 3 pieces: Introduction & Rondo Capriccioso, The Swan, and Danse Macabre... they're all by the same composer so I didn't feel like the selections were random, and at least it wasn't Marton or some modern arrangement. The purity of the music allowed his basics to come through, IMO. I would like to watch R&J for comparison, though.
Of the 3 top Russian pairs I am surprised that I like K. Stolbova/F Klimov SP the most and 2nd V. Bazarova/J. Larionov SP and T. Volosozhar/M. Trankov SP Godfather jazz version the least."Normally" it would be the other way around for me.
love Bobrova/D. Soloviev FD and agrre with other posters about the music cut.The is a great program even if the keep it this way.
also love Makarovas FP and Adelinas.They both have great choreographed programs.
By the way thanks for all the vids and links !
It is like heaven a Saturday evening ,watching this with a glass (or 2) of champagne.
nop Marco I will sing with her ))
Oh wow. I was expecting R&J and waiting to be trolled but this is just magnificent.
It's a little bare at the moment, but this could be a really great program for him. I just absolutely love the steps in The Swan. He's softened his arms a little which I think will help. Not sure about the Danse Macabre bit. But you know, he does it every year! Just when I thought he couldn't get any better, in that last part, he grabs his heel and does a Y. What the hell?! Where did that come from?!?!!?!?
Great 4S, and hope he's gonna bring the 4Lz at some point, he was training it this off-season.
Artur and Evgeni both look physically great, too. I think maybe Artur is a little bigger in the chest, but at 19 he should finally be over his body growing. Now we will get a chance to see what he can do.
