    U.S. Pairs 2021-22 season - News & Updates, Part X

    Whether it’s Ashley/Timothy or Alexa/Brandon, where would their scores fall into the team event compared to the other pair teams? Would it be 3rd -6th place with Russian, China, Japan likely in 1st thru 3rd? What I would really like to see is Timothy as a flag bearer for the U.S. at the Olympic...

    U.S. Pairs 2021-22 season - News & Updates, Part X

    I wish they would let both pairs teams and dance teams compete in the Team event to let more people possibly get a medal. The last Olympics U.S. ladies and men got two competitors for the Team event, so why not switch it around this time. Or let both pairs teams compete in the team event if...

    Carreira/Ponomarenko Need a Cheer Thread

    They and their team should go watch Prince’s music video for inspiration if they haven’t already along with the movie. Is she supposed to be Catwoman? It confused me because the first Batman movie with Prince’s music doesn’t have Catwoman but does have Vicki Vale. I think it would be fun if she...

    The Dance Hall 9: Bring the Bling or No Beijing 2021-2022

    The RD music combinations at the Russian Test skates were beyond interesting. I LOVE Z/G’s RD, but not I’m not so sure about the khakis costumes. M/B should use another Peter Gabriel song like Big Time and/or Sledgehammer rather than the Black Eyed Peas song for some more song cohesion and...

    The Dance Hall 9: Bring the Bling or No Beijing 2021-2022

    I wish K/A’s team hadn’t gone down the hip hop route for their RD. K/A is doing well with it, but I just don’t think the music fits them stylistically. My vision for their RD would be along the lines of the Cure’s “Pictures of You” (it’s 86 bpm which fits the tempo for the pattern dance...

    From Russia With Love [#40]: Summer 2021 & into the Olympic season

    Or use the Phillip Glass film score to the movie Candyman (1992). There’s so many good horror movie film scores that would make for a interesting SP/LP.

    2021-22 Programs and Choreographers

    Smart/Diaz’s FD music from Puss in Boots and Zorro appear to be a tribute or parody of Antonio Banderas movies. Either way, I’m intrigued. I wish Spain had qualified two Olympic spots for their ice dance teams.

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

    Between the two Spanish teams, for me, S/D have always excelled at RDs choreography, performance, and character wise. They really commit to the theme and characters in the RD especially these two past seasons with their tango and Grease programs. H/K seem to make safe choices with their RD...

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

    Maybe H/D should try and make this FD like the character of Ally is reflecting on her life with Jackson starting with Jackson’s version of “I’ll Never Love Again,” followed by “I Don’t Know What Love Is” or “Music to My Eyes” which both have a great waltz feel to them, then “Digging My Grave “...

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

    I guess I may be in the minority, but I LOVE Popova/Mozgov’s FD and RD. They as a team, remind me of cult films (e.g. doesn’t appeal to the mainstream, unconventional, dash or heap of camp, sometimes a guilty pleasure for some). Their programs at times have moments of “it’s so bad, it’s good”...

    From Russia with Love [#33]: Summer 2019

    This is their fabulous SP. https://youtu.be/44CKJwdP9E8

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

    The 2 lifts in the videos from the Popova/Mozgov interview and those posted on Instagram are really cool. The spin is pretty interesting too. It looks like she does a turn within the spin as he is in a camel spin (not the best description).

    2019-2020 Programs and Choreographers

    I’m thinking it’s going to be a Joni Mitchell program. The lyrics on the second clue fit “Both Sides Now” with “Moon and Junes and Ferris Wheels.”There’s an orchestral version of it on the album of the same name which is torch song take on her previous songs, so maybe that’s how the orchestra...

    2019-2020 Programs and Choreographers

    They have to do the Carlton dance (Fresh Prince of Bel Air) with “It’s Not Unusual.” https://youtu.be/zS1cLOIxsQ8

    Can't Help Falling In Love ... with Hubbell & Donohue (fan thread #2)

    If they use “I’ll Never Love again” especially Bradley Cooper’s part, I will bawl like a baby at everyone of their performances. The songs “I Don’t Know What Love Is” and “Music to My Eyes” has a alt-country waltz feel about them that would work with “Shallow.”
