    Yup Cherub721 that's exactly it

    Tango and Latin has already been done this quadrennial so I guess the ISU wouldn't go back to it before Sochi. I was really hoping for a Blues SD though...

They are so smooth it blows my mind and i could watch them glide on ice all day. They have such finesse and quality its amazing. I only wish they would change their rotational lift at the end. If they want to recycle, they have so many lifts to reuse that could get them levels yet still be more part of the program.
    ITA. They are so smooth and in this new SD they are flirtatious & ooze character and chemistry. Love the music too - great choice. I can't wait to see how the program evolves AND to see their FD.

    I hope Tessa wears a headband or a tiara as well for their FD! Something like this maybe http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-AifCdIXvLL..._b_320x480.jpg. I have a feeling she is going to go for a Grecian or Roman look - something that is reminiscent of Anna Pavlova http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...he_Seasons.jpg She wore a lot of gret headpieces for her photoshoot in today's bride I hope she was inspired to incorperate some on ice.

    V/M's 2009/2010 OD didn't really come together until Nationals. There were a lot of people who were very critical of it during the 2009 GP circuit especially in comparison to D/W's Bollywood program that everyone seemed to love so much. Already I think V/M's SD this year looks great to start, and and even just seeing it with the proper costume, better quality video, etc. will probably make a difference at their next event.

    Please, no headbands or tiaras of any type, at all.

    Well she is a queen and a queen needs a crown I was wondering if anyone going to Sochi knows if its possible to give Tessa a flower crown - like fans gave Johnny Weir a flower crown at Vancouver

    Some lovely YouTube user made a side-by-side comparison of V/M and D/W's short dance, broken down into sections. I thought some of you may be interested in watching it. Even if you aren't interested in seeing D/W's dance, the breakdown is nice. Watching the sections of V/M's dance independently from the others was helpful. I think the first section is gold. I hope they didn't change a thing about it. The middle part could be better. And I'm still in love with the ending pose

    Virtue and Moir #30 - Labour of Love

    Thanks!

    The middle part is devoted to the Finnstep compulsory patterns. It's a required element and they cannot change, alter, or add to the steps--they have to be done exactly as specified by the ISU.

    Also keep in mind that a month or so separates the two as VM's was in early august AFAIK.

    Back in town now so shall be reading the boards on a regular basis. Internet was spotty on my trip.

    Unfortunately I didnt realize earlier that I would be in europe the weekend of trophy eric bompard. Now that air etc is booked it wouldnt be fair to disrupt DH's holiday though he is willing.

    Thanks, I know that, but I still think it could be better (That's not to say that I don't think theirs is by far the best SD I've seen. I just think they're capable of even more!)

    Also, I'm keeping updated playlists on YouTube of the SDs and FDs for this season.

    O, but you will see them at Nationals, Emdee, right? I am sure you both will have amazing holiday in Europe.

    This comparating sjow to me, that this are two very different dances. Like Zoueva talked before season started -one is jazzy, very dancing and i think with trith ballroom feeling.
    Second one is all about speed and flaw.
    VM show music be every part of bodies and i love SS with this jazz feeling. Its great they went into another direction, then they skated before. I think this dance have more music nuances, then all there previoues SDs. Just IMHO. I love they didnt skate across the music, but use every bit of it.

    Thanks for posting. Makes me appreciate V&M's SD all the more, so interesting to side by side comparisons. Jenny and Dave are nuts, V&M should by no means dump their SD and start new.

    Its OK, if fans dont like this SD (i think Dave is FS fan and Jenny were a sinle skater, i dont she have dance expirience). But i cant get this comment too. Let all skaters skate wjat they want to skate and choose what you like the most

    Thanks for this, MissJD Btw, all your posts resonate what I am thinking

    Same with you,Pani! Love, love the "mirror" pattern in first part, and that twirl they did close to end of the boards...but mostly, how they embraced the music and made me feel it as it should...

    Thanks, Pani.
    Yes I will see them at Nationals and also Skate Canada which I recently booked as well. Its just that I could have as easily flown home from Paris as from Frankfurt if I had thought about it before!

    I too agree that the fact that they skate with their whole persons in time to every nuance of the music which evokes a mood. That is wy substituting the music for a VM skate almost never works while this can be done with others

    Jenny and Dave are just sucking up to the USFSA so then can get credentials or w/e. Take their 'critiques' with a grain of salt.

    With the comparison I think Tessa and Scott embody the character and essence of the Finnstep more than D/W. D/W looks like a watered down quickstep.
