For obvious reasons, I think it is clearer when a singles or pairs event is well skated or not. But what are some of the better, and indeed, worse, dance championships?
Despite an (amateur) background in modern dance, I still find the event a bit ... shall we say "murky", at times But I am trying!
So, to my unedeucated eye, Torino seemed to be a hot mess - with, for me, very few memorable moments other than that stare, all the OD falls and and D/V's POTO N/K are perhaps the least talked about Olympic dance champions (or so it seems?) Then again, I've always thought of the 03-06 cycle as being relatively weak? Is this fair?
Euros this year didn't seem so strong to me.
On the flip side, I was watching some 1991 worlds earlier. Was that considered a deep and well-skated event? The three medallists were fantastic IMO, but I enjoyed many of the lower teams as well. (How did U/Z win both CD's, have four 1st place ordinals in the FD, but still only come 3rd?! )
Educate me FSUers! Of course there is a difference between a competition being well-skated and the standard not being very high in the first place, but which competitions would you say have been the strongest and weakest in the discipline?
