Thanks. I like some of the shapes I saw in the opening number so I'd really like to see it in full.
doesnt ISU require dances, especially the FDs, to have some rhythm or beat to them so the dances arent just all about ballet/lyrical/neoclassical? reverie and vocalise might have some rhythm to them, but i cant discern any. i'd like something rhythmic for them, even though they might go in a lyrical/classic vein.
Canadablue found this video from yesterday's SOI, but the girl only posted little tidbits of the performances. It's still the best cam I've seen yet tho: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Tl86...utu.be&t=6m37s
"Even though, of course, they’re competitors, you’ve got to kind of look up to them. They’re probably one of the greatest dance teams of all time."~Mitchell Islam
so "soon-ish" is really tomorrow. lol.
thank you iggie. I'm off to SOI in london tomorrow
Meryl posted a photo of Rodin sculpture on her instagram a while ago. I think Marina had those as an inspiration for some GG programs? Maybe it's a hint about Meryl and Charlie's next fd
iggie, can't wait to hear!!!
Regarding Vocalise and Reverie, I doubt that either team is going to skate to it. As pani and zilam98 pointed out there are no definite or a change of rhythms. And there is a reason why Marina Zoueva is always giving Tessa and Scott the more challenging programs in terms of artistry and emotions, because they have the maturity as well as emotional depth.
Although, they probably have their music already, I still hope they skate to a russian composer. It would be a nice tribute to Russia since they are really loved over there. Preferably, Tschaikovsky, I just love him and his music has so much complexity and depth.
ETA: iggie I cannot wait to hear and see
Also, certain D&W ubers have called all V&M fans crazy, mocked Canadian fans and wished for Patrick Chan to "fall flat on his face", made rude comments about Tessa and Scott's personalities, accused Tessa of faking an injury, and have come in here to mock us for being fans of V&M. One poster even referred to V&M's body of work as "romantic sh*t". I am not at all defending the behaviour of the few problematic posters in here, but I am just tired of seeing V&M fans getting most of the flak when the nastiness clearly exists in both uber groups (though again, a whole group should not be held responsible for the actions of a few, unless they actively encourage those actions).

Thank you so much for the reports, Emdee, Scrufflet, and Daniskates93! How lucky you are to have been so close to the action! I am so glad you all had such a great time at the show and I really enjoyed reading your reviews.
PEZazzz, i hope you have a great time tomorrow night!
And a huge thank you to iggie, Cherub, Gerbil and everyone else who made the book happen. It was such a pleasure to go through the comments in the best female dancer thread. There were so many passionate and insightful posts from some of the members of this thread as well as other FSUers, and I am thrilled that Tessa and Scott will have a chance to read them.
And thanks for the vids marikat!
