Remember when they didn't have any snow for (Lake Placid?) WI, and they showed the compulsory dances? Complete with a diagram of the pattern, explanation of what to watch for, and intelligent commentary? I was only a low level 13-y-o freeskater, but I knew I wanted to get into dance from then on. I remember the Paso was one of the dances.
I also miss judging figures. The quiet, the concentration...it was very calming. I not only wish they still had them, I wish they were televised!
