    Whoa the dancer there is so stiff compared to Tessa. Must be really hard to translate actual samba movement on the ice.

    2) I think I understand that this was "Olympic" week so did the couples get to choose which dance they were going to do and from which dance couple they were emulating?

    Thanks for the link! That was fun.
    pani already responded to you, but I still want to clear some things. Most of the skaters that take part in 'Ice Age' are ice dancers, but there are also pairs skaters (Totmianina and Marinin, Petrova and Tikhonov), so ice dancers usually do programs that are closer to ice dancing with their partners, and pairs skaters do programs with pairs skating elements, but I think it is allowed to mix elements a bit. For instance, ice dancers usually don't do high/pairs lifts, but pairs skaters sometimes do ice dancing lifts/elements, as it is easier for them to learn and adapt such elements. In any case, they don't have to do one particular style of program for each separate episode, as the theme is only music that can be sort of stretched too (I don't remember judges ever lowering marks because the music was not completely appropriate for the theme), and to which they can do a program in whatever style/with whatever choreography they want (as the musical themes are usually quite broad and allow it).

    Also, for this particular episode, teams had to choose music from any Olympic gold medalist's program - no matter ice dancers or pairs skaters, or even single skaters, and it even didn't have to be an Olympic program. It could be a program that the particular Olympic gold medalist skated in another season (as you could already see from Tessa and Scott's program that Zimina/Tchernyshev chose). Plus, they didn't have to exactly "emulate" that program or skaters in general - they could choose whether to do that at least partially, or make a completely different program with different elements, just to the same music.

    She is neither a dancer, nor a skater. She is an actress and TV presenter. So, yes, she is stiffer than Tessa, but I think considering the aforesaid she moves quite well.

    It's so funny that you guys are discussing Ice Age on here right now, because I just watched that episode! I always look forward to Ice Age even though I have no clue what they're saying! I just love watching the skating! There is nothing I would love more than to see Scott and Tessa do this show! Averbuch and Zhulin are fans of theirs and they have tons of Russian fans too so I think it's definitely a possibility. I want it to be another cup of professionals, and I want them to recruit Gordeeva so I can see her skate with Scott (I'm not asking for much, haha!!)

    If any of you guys want to see the last cup of professionals, this forum has all of the links and English discussions of what happened! http://alexeidiscussiongroup.yuku.co...1#.UpUzucSsjlM

    lauravvv, thanks for the extra detail in explaining Ice Age. It's not a show that I watch, nor one with which I am familiar (except to see people referring to it on this board).
    Crazy about sports!

    Yes, a few days ago I was watching Tessa and Scott's Latin FD. And no matter how many times I watch that program, I'm always amazed how those two can rock! WOW!! It is impossible not to be infected by their dance. I just want to dance too, when I think about that FD --even not having the slightest talent for it lol.

    And Ice Princess, thank you for the space dedicated to that number, I really love it too

    I watched the episode... that was fun. I haven't watched Ice Age in a really long time. I see the judging is as stupid as ever lol. It was so awesome seeing Peter samba... I wish the practice clip were longer, especially the part where he's kinda singing. I loved that they had all the same music cuts as V&M.... good memories. The performances to Memorial, City Lights, and Moonlight Sonata were amazing.

    I would love to see V&M participate someday. Actually I wish Averbukh would create a World Professional Championship like the ones from the 90s. K&P did some of their best work there. I doubt V&M would want to live in Russia for a whole season of a show but they definitely could do a competition here and there.

    So, how do you think, guys, will Tessa have new dress for FD at GPF? Not a lot off time for them before competition so I can't see they will change something in programs now, but maybe Tessa have few dresses already?

    I hope she will have the same dresses she wore at Skate Canada. Hope she doesnt have the green one. The pink so suits the program and its lovely soft touches.

    Of course if they are planning the seasons dresses then yes she will have a rust or brown one for fall!

    Once the GPF is over I am planning a complete retrospective of their programs from their earliest.
    Does Iggie's site have all the programs?

    I liked the pink one too. You're right, it suits the program.

    I also love Tessa's hair down for the FD. Like the pink dress, it suits the lyrical quality of this program.

    The pink dress is very well suited to the program, maybe a little more beading/sparkle wouldn't hurt?

    LOL -- I don't like the pink dress or the hair down. For me, the dress isn't making a strong enough statement, and the hair is distracting. I've liked pink dresses in the past (see the dress Gordeeva wore for her "Spring" solo program), but this one just isn't doing it for me. As for the hair, I think it's just too long and too straight. Maybe if she curled it a bit or something?

    Just watched 3 FD perfomances in row - TEB, SC and FT.
    First off all - they had THERE moment in Finlandia and SC, all that mood, feelings, emotions. That was amazing to see this in Espoo, thatks God they could show this emotions when i was at the arena and i will rermember this long time
    Second. How skirt play a big role in all dance. With lighter skirt in Finland it had more flaw, more movement. So i think she need to change skirt on something like this from her old dress.
    As for colors. I am not sure. Like i said before i wish Tessa will have red dress like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxseLaxl61s
    And Scott in something like in Carmen dark blue.
    I like Tessas hairs down.
    As for TEB - its was absolutly best SD. They have best SD this season for me.
    As for FD. I think last SS look fast and sharp and this is good. But they lost that moment and feeling. They need work more on emotions.
    I felt better, because i see - they could do this. I am not talking about medals, but about what i want to feel after there perfomances.

    Thanks for your last post pani. They have made me spell bound when seeing them live as well and - I agree - I so want them to have one of those special moments at this Olympics. The SD is so great and can set them up so well to go into the FD with confidence.

    Thanks!
    Some words from Averbuch in his last interview. I am not sure, did he saw new TS programs, but he said VM show iconic style in ice dance. (he was asked - who is icedance style icons for you). He like all programs, which VM show on ice. For him VM are at the another level. They usually didnt tell stories on ice, but the story of the soul with shades and halftones. He was wonder why during all last season americans was on the top. For him VM were much better in choreo of there FD and in quality how they skated it at WCh.
    But both team are ahead of all others. Then he talk about how much Canadian and Americans skating skills are.

    I think both the SD & the FD have the potential to be Oly winners. Once you put the emotions into the FD it will be wonderful and I am sure they are capable of having their moment.

    Any one have idea about media coverage. i guess it will be when we sleep but I thought maybe I should watch all night and then go to work to rest!! Or I may take a day or two off....
