    Tessa's dress from the Finnstep at 4CC may be my favorite ever dress worn by her. They had a bobble or two, to be expected given she was coming off of surgery and how difficult it must have been on her legs to learn this particular dance.

    I found his mullet to be far more newsworthy than her peep show

    It was similar to when they brought the Golden Waltz in as the Pattern part of the SD. I felt that worked well because it is complex and has lots of content. When they did Rhumba the dance is so short I didn't feel it sat well within the SD theme.
    I think just the opposite. IMO almost none of the Golden Waltz short dances worked as dances precisely because the GW pattern was so long. The pattern steps and other elements took up so much of the alloted time that there wasn't any time left for good choreography. All we got were element after element with brief connecting sequences. It did not help that so many teams chose the completely incongruous tango rhythm to go with it. I think this subsequent years' SDs, collectively, are much more successful as dances.

    The GW pattern takes a minute, the rhumba about 30 seconds, and Yankee Polka looks like about 33 -35 seconds. One pattern of Finnstep takes about 40 seconds.

    Got a special treat this morning. Our senior dance team are training with Jimmy Young and I got to stand in on the practise session to have a look at the dance close up with regards to learning it for judging. Really interesting. Some of the steps are incredibly difficult so you can see it is going to be a challenge for the skaters and judges. Also with the key points it is going to quite difficult for the tech panels to be able to pick up those steps because it is so quick.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    When are the key points usually released by the ISU?

    From this Merriman/O'Brien article that was published before Worlds: http://corporate.olympics.com.au/new...-silver-lining
    “Although we are disappointed and now Worlds is out of reach, we have moved on. We are happy to have the head start on next season and have made pretty good progress so far,” Danielle said.

    “We have broken down the Finnstep Short Dance for the next season and doing a lot of exercises in order to have every edge in the dance correct before they [the ISU] even release the key points.”

    “I must say it's going pretty well and I'm surprised it’s moving so quickly. We can already skate a fairly good, full pattern,” Danielle said.

    “Our goals have been readjusted without worlds in the equation and will skate our own ‘mini-worlds’ here in Detroit, aiming to skate a clean Finnstep to the music. We’ve been close to achieving that before Worlds even starts.”
    ETA: Never mind - the key points are included in ISU Communication no. 1782 (March 5, 2013) so it looks like O'Brien was quoted before this came out:

    With the 3-minute break rule, could she now stop and get a safety pin or something?

    Nope; wardrobe-related stops still incur a deduction.

    It's not too late to announce it as a partnership Certainly Tiffany deserves better than ISU demonstrations.

    Another communication for Ice dance, including the 2014/15 requirements for the SD.

    http://www2.isu.org/vsite/vnavsite/p...0.html?id=1301

    For senior it will be a Spanish theme with the Paso Doble. For Junior it will be Latin theme with the Silver Samba done as the pattern.

    They have said with the Paso it is only one sequence followed by a Step sequence. Not sure what they are trying to achieve with this.

    The have also published a list of Spanish Dance Rhythms - includes the Fandango, Bolero and Jota (never heard of that one).

    Yeah, I was just looking at that. WTF is a "Partial Step Sequence"? And why do they require it to happen right after the Paso?
