    Papadakis/Cizeron #9 - People Will See Them And Cry

    Just download one from its official site. The good ones are all pricey, esp. if you are in a country with strict internet restrictions. The Opera browser for example took away the free VPN option in several regions.

    Papadakis/Cizeron #9 - People Will See Them And Cry

    Why is Scott Moir brought into Montreal in a coaching capacity? Don't they already have a big team of coaching staff? I have a feeling that P/C won't stay with Montreal beyond the Olympics with this new addition, if they are thinking about staying beyond 2022 at all.

    The Dance Hall 8: Join the Maskerade 2020-2021

    That’s a very reductive take on P/C. They didn’t start anything of the sort. Two of their most sophisticated programs were set to (genuinely good, as opposed to questionable ballet music) classical pieces, with a refreshingly modern twist. Takahashi’s qualities make this program nice to watch...

    USFS ISP Points Challenge- Sep and Oct 2020

    I'm a fan of theirs but the first viewing (via a grainy video) left me no particular impression. Their SD back in 2016 was beautiful and beautifully paced/proportioned. This feels like a dilution. And I was thinking oh I hope it’s not Scott Moir rubbing the blandness of V/M vanilla programs off...

    Is Michelle Kwan underrated

    I think she's maybe underrated in the rest of the world, but not in the US. Understandable since most of her iconic performances happened in domestic competitions or international comps that were held in North America.

    The MS costumes are supremely elegant and poetic, with such a light touch, surely aging better than all other skating costumes from the era.

    Elena Berezhnaya interview

    Aw nice to hear about their friendship. Anton Sikharulidze had the best line and carriage I've ever seen from a male skater.

    ISU to evaluate feasibility of 2020-21 skating season

    Decreasing death rate is always welcome, which is acknowledged by all respectable media outlets. Statistics show that in the U.S., the rate of positive results from testing has been increasing all along, especially in Texas, Florida, and Arizona. (i.e. from 1 positive out of 10 tests to 20...

    In that French interview Gabby did say they much prefer working on new programs rather than going back to old ones.

    Dizzying Speed. And I like this version the best. Infectious and straightforward musicality.

    Papadakis/Cizeron #9 - People Will See Them And Cry

    The clip Gabi posted of them dancing the ending of the Fame RD looks fantastic. Wonder if the moves are fully translatable to ice.

    https://youtu.be/JR49dyo-y0E I wonder if Romain and MFD got some ideas for the RD from this.

    Pairs Discussion Thread 2019-20: “Two skating as one”

    I still don’t understand this B/K thing. They skate so clunky. 90s choreo and heavy, eked-out elements. By no means should they get more GOE than T-M

    The Dance Hall 7: Tripping the Light Fantastic 2019-2020

    Why does NBC insist on this step-child treatment of US Ice Dance, the discipline with the deepest field internationally, junior and senior? A week after competition only C/B’s performance is available on YT.

    The Dance Hall 7: Tripping the Light Fantastic 2019-2020

    Yeah but usually he reposts stuff post-competition strictly related to their performances. That was Romain commenting on the judging. Anyway, finally got to see S/K’s FD. Certainly as a program it’s much more emotionally accessible, especially for the more traditionally minded judges. But...
