IIRC, someone around here once floated the idea of Dirty Dancing for them. I almost hate to bring that up, because I'm not the world's biggest Dirty Dancing fan. :) And yet, on reflection, it might be a really good fit for them. If they want to go sexy, I think they need to make it a light and playful kind of sexy. Some of the songs from DD would let them do that. And it could give Caro a bit of a character arc to work with and something to build to, rather than having her just be smoldering the whole time.
Carolanne does have a bit of a Jennifer Grey vibe so that really could work.

It's funny i never thought about D/W being shorter then many of their competitiors. Maybe because they skated with such speed and power and attack it made them seem taller.

@clairecloutier I believe Shane would be thrilled to be as “short” as Charlie White. I know what his bio says, 170cm, but they probably measured him in his skates, with lifts, and to the top of his hair! Shane grew up around here and he is probably closer to Keegan Messing, 163cm. I never thought being shorter would be a disadvantage in figure skating, but I agree, in this case (and probably in Keegan’s) it really is. Charlie, by the way is listed at 175cm or almost 5’9”.
Yeah, Charlie White is average height, and is taller than Shane. Charlie may not be tall, but he isn't short, either. And I think Scott Moir is about the same height as Charlie.

Shane does have a very cute, puppy dog face, though.

Happy birthday to Carolane today (and to Shane on the 21st)! She posted on Instagram for the first time since nationals. They've both been pretty quiet since then, but I hope they're feeling better after their disappointment and getting ready to start rebuilding.

Carolane posted in yesterday's Instastory that this week is program week, so hopefully we'll hear something soon about music. Fingers crossed that this season they get two programs that really suit them.

The RD theme this season probably plays to their strengths, in terms of presentation, though the bigger issue is simply going to be confidence, because you could see that sap out of them as this past season went on.

Both C/L and G/F from Italy are shorter and the ISU lists G/F as 161 cm/165 which makes him shorter than most of the female partners. They seem to have such fast feet which is generally appealing. As I checked the heights, should they be correct and up to date, P/C are 166/186, S/K are 167/180 and S/B are 170/186. It is sometimes surprising who appears taller as I would have thought S/K to be a taller team, at least the females. I remember being very surprised that Marie France and Megan Wing were very close in height but Marie France always appeared taller and to have longer lines than Megan.

Yes, totally agree that Soucisse could definitely be Jennifer Grey-esque and skate to Dirty Dancing!!! I also see La La Land for this team!

I wonder if they would even consider La la land given that Liam’s La la land free was arguably one of the best La la land choreography to date.

Personally, I love LLL and would love to see them skate to it -- but since a lot of people don't like it and already consider it a warhorse, they might catch too much flak for it.

Are you sure for S/B? She looks smaller and he taller ...(?)

I like this team and hope they have a better season this time around. Carolane reminds me of Marie-France somehow. I hope she finds the right material for them!
