I know you can lose levels with very minor errors that the technical specialists are watching for like a free foot down in a spin, split second hesitation in grabbing a skate etc. - but I am confused if that is all that accounts for the lower marks. I keep wondering about the Canadian high performance camp and what goes on there. Surely, especially in an Olympic year, they have their best, most knowledgeable dance judges in attendance and giving feedback. Skate Canada is a very strong federation and must have their ear to the ice - so to speak - on what the current trends and feelings are in ice dance. I believe teams from other countries have scrapped whole programs after feedback from pre-competition camps. I like to think that Tessa and Scott did Funny Face and Carmen because they wanted to challenge themselves and show different sides to their personalities and skating. This year they wanted to go back to the more traditional, classic style they have been synonimous with. I am never sure where Marina falls in all of this with the two top teams - but Skate Canada??? I had really hoped we were going into a season where they had to make few changes in either dances -just get them faster and smoother.
