A great Swan Lake program would incorporate that. So would a lot of other things, admittedly. But to do all that while rooting it back to ballet and classic elegance?
    I would love if they completely went outside the box again, but we all know that's not going to happen especially with how last season played out. But classical and elegant is quintessential Tessa and Scott and if they're just themselves (I hope they just enjoy the moment and realize some things are out of their hands), we'll fall in love with what they do no matter what.

    Remember the speculation about George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight? Well, they only waited for a special day to show the golden Canadian dancers and what day is better than Canada Day, 1st July!

    http://www.channelcanada.com/canadia...oncert-details (scroll down, over the video)

    If I remember correctly, it was taped during Stars on Ice, so it is quite funny to think that they basically celebrated Canada Day in May in order to show it on the 1st July. It's kind of cool!

    And, Shayii, where is the quote from Christopher Dean from? This is really like knighting them!

    Whatever Tessa and Scoot do, I hope they fix the problems they had with the SS and spins.

    Hey Lola it's from this video. Do you know if the strombo interview will be an actual sit down one or something else?

    In all honesty the only competition Tessa and Scott got downgraded for their spin was Nationals and we're all still kind of confused about that. The SS is a mystery too because even after they changed it they still didn't get level four.

    Unless I missed something along the way last season, in international competition, no team had a level 4 step sequence in the FD. Up until a few years ago, they were actually VERY rare.

    I don't think V/M need to fix a thing.

    Hi guys!

    I'm a big fan of Tessa and Scott and I follow this thread since I discovered them (unfortunately not long ago). I'm having the courage to introduce myself just now, but I love reading all comments and learned a lot from the experience of all who are here.

    I'm very happy to be with you all, I hope we have many joys with V / M during this season that is coming.

    Sorry for my bad English, this is not my official language...

    Cap/Lan, GPF
    Davis/White, Gilles/Poirier - 4CC

    They were rarer last season than in most seasons, admittedly, but for V/M not to get one was highly unusual.

    I think that they are more likely to get a level 4 on their diagonal than their circular, but I think they are also more likely to get a level 4 if the diagonal is skated earlier in the program, when they aren't tired and are able to hit their edges more cleanly and deeply, their turns more crisply. Hopefully next season's choreography and music allows for that!

    The FD competition from nats was sooo weird! Everyone kept on getting deductions!

    Im just saying that if V/M plan on defeating a inflated-pcs D/W they have to be technically perfect and get all their levels. But above all they have to be healthy

    Thank you for the link, Shayii! And I have no idea how the format will be. I would guess it is the normal red chair interview, but it could be anything.

    I guess the pre-season preparation will be key. Let's be honest, the preparation last season was not ideal: Scott's neck injury and cold, the change of FD and SD comparatively late and then the complete new as well as extremely difficult Carmen in August. During the season, they basically just tried to figure out what to do, chasing the levels and I believe, if they would have finished these two programs in June/July instead of August, they would have had an easier season, getting the levels. All their other programs where done earlier and they did most of the tinkering we saw in Carmen during the season, already in the off-season. Think about: when you are late learning for an exam, do you have the confidence going into it?

    But Carmen couldn be compare to there others FD - its most complex FD they ever done (especially first outing). So kudos to them for be able skate it that way at Nationals and WCh.
    But they learn this season, that judges didnt care about this. So they now know, what to do for get there levels and PCS in next season.
    And yes, whith coaching changes, re-working FD in August it was difficult seaon. Hope this time things will be easy for them. But look like they dint like when things go easy. Look, like they didnt start working on FD after WCh, because they didnt like first music choice.
    So will wait and see, how they will use this season experience.
    And thanks for all information about interview. Cant wait!

    Thats true. And the coaching change too! and the politicking coming from Igor! what he said after the FD @ Skate Canada was total sabotage! Hopefully they have a better offseason this time. It seems like they starting working on the SD before D/W so I hope they got that down

    Where did you read they started on the SD before D/W? Lovely photos in the Bride Magazine.

    I just assumed based on pictures that showed up on twitter. V/M started working with Jean Marc waaaay before DW started working with Derek Hough, who I assume is working with them for the SD.

    Welcome, Lety!

    Thanks for that vid, pani. I love watching the dancers do lifts off ice and in street clothes. "The Shield" was perfect... I'm going to start calling it that from now on.
