I saw Tessa&Scott at practice today! They were looking very focused and calm. The music is very classical and beautiful but I think this program will be like Mahler, it will only get better the more you see it! They did parts of the program in their run through, loved the straight line lift (crazy body control required) and the last rotational lift was sooo fast. Spin also had beautiful positions! The music built up towards the end and they looked so happy and joyous skating it! I can definitely imagine them skating it at the olympics, major goosebumps just thinking about it..And I quite liked the ending, it was simple yet effective.
The SD parts also looked soo great and effortless. It was great for a first practice, can't wait for tomorrow!!
Even Mahler costumes? I am not sure its good for them.
The dress looks really nice in the second picture that woman tweeted (the one marikat linked to ). Love the way the skirt seems to float.
Some quotes at the above twitter:
From Tessa:From Scott:"Sometimes we say that the beginning of this program is sort of picking up where the end of Mahler left of."Check out the position in the photo that comes with the tweet with the Scott quote. Gorgeous!"This is the right vehicle to get us where we want to go."
I'm torn about the dress. It's the OGM dress,so it's good luck. But they have grown so much as skaters and dancers, why not make a new history starting from a brand new dress?
That´s not the dress she wore in Vancouver.
It seems the new dress has a different shade and design. So it's not entirely the same. That's good. It reminds people of the good old days, but it also have a new look. I see what they are going for.

OK, not rush to any conclusion. Just wait and see what they bring in the real competition. Oh god, all the waiting makes me a bit jumpy.
Is the dress white or light blue?
