    Because in ice dance, hair is nearly as important as the skating.

    well said, Shayii.

    Thank you rainbowkisses, marikat, and pani for the links to their performance, and thank you elle123 for the protocols.

    Wow....they gave a clinic on turns, if you ask me. That footwork sequence was exceptional...so patient with those edges, so clean...I was renered speechless watching this SD. and I actually preferred the original concept--I love the melancholic aspects of it--but this dance is just gorgeous. and I agree with those who have remarked on the difficulty of these transitions--just look at how they are always skating on one foot, weaving around each other, changing directions, varying holds. This is exactly what that mark calls for. To me it is the most difficult SD in its transitions, so I disagree with the transitions mark among other things.. I do love D&W's SD as well, especially those little hops, which are very difficult. I like that they are pushing themselves to do more choreography in unison, and I think they capture the feel of the polka just beautifully. I think they will continue to work on line and extension with Alex.

    I also agree with many of the comments on skating skills. What I think Tessa and Scott do not always receive full credit for is they way in which they vary their speed, their ease of acceleration (speed out of nothing, as pani has noted), and the power of each stroke generated from those soft, rhythmic knees. They just float across the ice...I am still gobsmacked. exquisite skating.

They come in 4 designs, one of which features Tessa and Scott (in their victory lap in Vancouver). People can view the bottles here:

    nice to see them get this kind of recognition

    Can you just buy the water bottle? I don't need anything at Canadian Tire--certainly not anything over $35. I still have the Patrick Chan water bottle, so I would like to complete the collection.

    You can "buy" the water bottle for $35 and consider whatever you bought as the "free" item.

    Can someone teach me a little on how to read the results? Like, you guys always talk of them getting level 4's, but all I see are 1's, 2's, and 3's haha. I'm a newbie at this.

    Levels are written next to abbreviations of element names (left side). Or in the case of Yankee Polka sequences, if you see something like 2YP3+kpNYY, it's the second number that shows the level. Those 1s, 2s and 3s you see are GOE (grade of execution) marks. But a 3 for one element is not worth the same as a 3 for another element. They are all converted according to the base value of the element itself, so that's why you can see something like 1.43 or 0.79 under GOE next to the base value. If you were serious about that.

    Not necessarily linked to ice dance, but you really can't see Meryl and Charlie's arms, knees and toes after seeing these:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nw1OAP0BqTU
    Of all the Giselles to be compared against, I don't know if anyone can match Alina!
    I love the power in D/W's SD, but it would be more effectively used with some other (any other!) music than Giselle. The hops, the costumes, everything hangs on the side of cheesy than genuine with that program for me. I liked their SD last year a lot more.
    I would love to see V&M do a ballet program but also don't see that happening anytime soon. A pity!

    Really? I'm actually preferring the Nationals one right now. Everything seemed perfect there, the twizzles, the yankee polka, everything. And I also miss the hug.
