    ETA2: Apparently it's part of something bigger she's doing for CBC.

    Dang VM fans are fast! I believe it was only available for like five minutes before it was made private again--sorry PJ lol. Thanks.

    I, thank you a lot, Olga Gasanova!
    They both look great and Scott like always very funny :-)
    It's great it's cool for them to skate on this music, so I think we will see this in there performances. Can't wait to see new costumes

    The 2011 SD was quite open because the teams could combine the required Golden Waltz pattern with other standard dances such as waltz, tango, foxtrot, or quickstep.

    In 2009 the OD was simply dances of the 20s, 30s, and 40s, and there was a wide variety, with Domnina/Shabalin opting for 1920s Soviet Style waltz, while most couples were doing something upbeat.
    I see...thanks for clarifying, Cherub721

    Nothing really. PJ asked if there was anything about Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong's musical chemistry they were trying to convey in the SD. Scott says they're trying to be themselves and there's a coolness about the music that they want to convey and that's where he says he knew there would be a lot of tuxes and gowns with the SD this year and they wanted to go in a different direction (this was a general statement and I don't think he was referring to any teams). Also the Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong CD was the first Marina bought when she came to Canada.

    Thanks, Shayii. It is interesting to me how they keep stressing they are doing something different from everybody else. I like that so much. They probably should've done a lot of that last year, I mean, talk about what sets them apart from the rest. But, hey, this year works too.

    Thank you Shayii, I didn't understand this part! I'm very curious to see the new costumes! Curious to see the "different direction" ^^

    Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement, clarie, m_chenning, Cherub721, zilam98, volunteer, Lety, walei, pani, Emdee (welcome back from vacation, btw, and thanks for sharing your impressions from SC and Worlds), CatherineC, The Accordion, Shayii, AsianFSFan, PEZazzz, and iggie. You are very sweet

You not only share my love of this exquisite dance team - you have numerous insights into their art and accomplishments. I love discussing dance in general and specifically their journey with you, commiserating on their difficulties and celebrating the wonder.
    I feel the same way! I am so grateful to interact with so many cool people in here, and I have learned so much from you all about so many different aspects of ice dance. I really wish I had a music background so I found the music education several of you provided us with to be very valuable. I am so happy to be part of this thread community and appreciate getting to share this season with you all

    Oh yeah - and my name is Lori and I am the Lori in Iggie's blog who wrote about V and M short dance!
    That was you?! I love that entry! I especially like how you drew parallels between these two duos, and I just feel like I have a greater appreciation for the music and the dance itself after reading your post. And it was so well written! Thank you so much for doing this and best of luck with your own ice dancing

    and thanks for the links, parapluies, pani, PEZazzz, and *Ice Princess*.

Its very hard and need more time for work.
    And its not just there talent for dancing, but a hard work. From there young adges they were focusing on ice dance, not like most of others skaters, who did singles with ice dance or pair skating. So they learn how to dance on the floor from they were 8 and 10. Plus Tessas ballet background. This all help them to win all, what they won in ice dancing.
    [...]
    Hope this season they put all this together - clean light skating+dancing body moves from reall ballroom dancing and ballet. This will be big input in ice dancing.
    Exactly. Excellent posts! Their natural talent and their penchant for making everything look so easy belies the fact that they have worked their butts off to be able to do what they do, and that work has always involved a strong emphasis on actual dance training. Each dance has such a specific style of movement, which V&M always attend to with each new program. And even though they have been known for heir superb technique since they were juniors, they have worked each year to improve it which has given them the freedom in the rest of their bodies to really experiment with different kinds of movement and translate the dances onto the ice. To borrow from m_chenning, V&M=pure skating+pure dancing.
