    Canadian Ice Dance 2014/15 - news & updates

    Copying over these posts/hearsay news from the Canadian dance splits thread in the Trash Can:

    Jeff Hough (EO) and Audrey Croteau-Villeneuve (Quebec) have formed a new partnership. Both were junior dance last season.

    A new ice dance team for 2014-2015 : Lauren Collins and Shane Firus. Shane is moving to Barrie to train with Lauren. They should make a strong team. Not sure if they plan to skate junior or senior level as Shane is not eligible for junior level for ISU unless they lower the male age limit to 21.

    Danny Seymour is remaining in Barrie with a new partner Yasmeen Jong.
    Megan Wing and Aaron Lowe have a redesigned coaching website (appears to have launched earlier this year): Vancouver Ice Dance Academy

    Senior teams: Nicole Orford & Thomas Williams, Madeline Edwards & ZhaoKai Pang
    Junior teams: Brianna Delmaestro & Timothy Lum, Danielle Wu & Spencer Soo, Courtney Royer & Addison Voldeng

    Two new dance teams have formed from 3 split teams:

    HALEY SALES & NIK WAMSTEEKER
    Junior Dance
    DOB: 26 DEC 96/28 OCT 96
    Started skating together: March 2014
    (Note: Haley Sales won the 2012 Canadian Novice Women's bronze.)

    ASHLYNNE STAIRS & LEE ROYER
    Novice Dance
    DOB: 16 AUG 2000/28 JULY 98
    Started skating together: April 2014

    I saw them skate at the 2013 nationals, and they were very, very good. Beautiful skating quality, edges like butter, and really nice personalities. I know that they basically sat all of this season out with injury, and that they were on the entry list for the 2014 nationals (but withdrew). I really hope they do continue.

    And right now the Juniors (E&P) are threatening to upstage the Seniors (O&W)!

    Depending on if they change the age back up to under 21 versus the current under 20, some of those teams may go up to senior or some who thought they had to go up may come back to Junior. I know Skate Canada has said domestically they can be junior if under 21, but that excludes them from any International assignments unless in June the congress reverses its decision (which feels way too late for teams). Delmaestro and Lum are still eligible for Junior so I assume that is where they will stay.

    Has Katie Desveaux found a new partner since she and Dmitre parted, or is she not continuing?

    So that's quite a list of new teams! And if the rules are not altered to allow the age for young men to go back to what it's been, there should be quite a lot of new teams at Senior. As it is, with 2 teams gone from Senior, and teams that have to move up from Junior, there will be a full slate at Senior for the first time in awhile.

    Moving up to Senior from Junior:

    Bent/McKeen
    Soucisse/Tanguay
    Falardeau/Mulder
    Robitaille/Granger

    Status unknown or still partner searching at Senior:

    Barthe
    Gadosy
    Smyth


    On the bubble between Junior and Senior, depending on if the rules change:

    Collins/Firus
    Jong/Seymour
    Linden/Jackson
    Milne/Webb


    Still qualify at Junior:

    Meng/Meng
    Wu/Soo
    Delmaestro/Lum
    Croteau-Villeneuve/Hough
    Daigle-Roy/Razgulajevs
    Verret/Desrochers
    Garabedian/Laliberte
    Royer/Voldeng
    Penkov/Chapplain
    Sales/Wamsteeker

    I think Edwards & Pang are going to be competing on the Junior Grand Prix (although they compete Nationally as Seniors).

    Milne/Webb and Jong/Seymour are skating junior regardless of age change with ISU.

    So dance will begin to look more like pairs. I know teams can choose to stay Junior domestically well past 21 years for guys in pairs. I think doing the same thing in dance is a positive step, especially for teams who are finding their right fit partner wise, or for guys who get started late. Interesting.

    Did not see that happening at all. There don't seem to be adjectives to describe how shocking this season has turned out to be.

    Asher & Kharis have skated together since they were kids, but they weren't moving up the standings, unfortunately.

    If they are deciding to part, I would imagine they put some thought into it and felt it was time.

    I wonder if Vanessa Crone is still interested in skating? Could be a match for Asher...

    Well that would be interesting. Vanessa & Asher used to be training mates, so they know each other well. Not sure if Crone would want to go back to Carol Lane though since according to what's been reported on FSU in the past, the coaching issue is why she and Poirier split.

    It would be interesting to see them together. Potentially an athletic, powerful style. But they'd probably need to be willing to move for training.
