    Favorite OD/OSP

    In no particular order, although G&P's ODs are my favorites.

    G&P: Quickstep and Libertango

    T&D: Paso Doble (but really, all of their OSP and their 1994 Rhumba are brilliant)

    K&P: http://youtu.be/MFvEJevXBkQ

    U&Z: Blues

    K&O: Jive

    R&K: Quickstep AKA the Finnstep

    FP&M: Latin Combo

    A&P: Flamenco

    DenSta: Memories of a Grand Ball

    D&W: Bollywood

    lulu, G&P's Quickstep was one of the first dances that popped into my head. I admit that I never learned to really appreciate them until after they had retired but their Girls, Girls, Girls IMO set the standard for Quicksteps.

    V&M: Latin (2006), Tango(2007), Charleston (2009), Waltz (this season)
    NavBoms: African Folk, Tango (ESPN really shouldn't have chacked that one)
    DelShoes: Folk Dance (2008)
    DenStavs: Memories of a Grand Ball, Tango (2007)
    B&K: Rhumba, Quickstep
    L&A: Flamenco
    Steigler/Magerovski: Foxtrot/Quickstep - I still get "Somebody Loves Me" stuck in my head from time to time
    Matthews/Zavozin: Cha Cha/Samba Latin Dance
    P&B: Flamenco (2008), Country Western (2010)
    The Kerrs: Scottish Folk
    D&L: Tango (2007)

    My all-time favourite is Meryl and Charlie's Bollywood OD from 2010
    Such a masterpiece! They should've won the OD section in Vancouver.

    And then in no particular order:
    Anissina/Peizerat 2002 OD
    Kerr/Kerr 2008 OD
    Kerr/Kerr 2010 OD
    Samuelson/Bates 2010 OD
    Davis/White 2013 SD

    In general, the national/folk themes were excellent times for ODs. So many brilliant dances.

    While they never skated it perfectly, one of my favorite OD's is Charlie and Meryl's Charleston.
