The team is still working with coaches Bruno Marcotte and Richard Gauthier and are also getting a little side help from ice dance coach Sylvie Fullum for detailing.
“My expectations for them are very high,” Marcotte commented. “Even if their progression last year was extremely fast, we still have to keep in mind that they are a really young team as far as experience goes. So my goals for this season is that they get a chance to represent Canada internationally and for them to make a great impression on the judge so they can start building their reputation on the international level.”
“Every element is getting stronger and more consistent,” said Marcotte. “Their programs this year are much more intricate than last year.”
The skaters, who would like to compete as seniors internationally, are excited about their two new programs, both choreographed by Julie Marcotte (Bruno’s sister), for this season. For the short, they will be skating to a foxtrot remix of Frank Sinatra’s classic Cheek to Cheek.
“This style hasn’t been done much in pair skating and we also like the fact that it’s very joyful, just like our personalities,” said Grenier.
For the long, they will be performing to music from the movie Somewhere in Time.
