Dear Tessa and Scott, I will definitely love you until my dying day ! (hopefully not too soon)
Carry on !
Carry on !
LOVE the matching hair buns!Tessa posted a IG story of their ACI17 recap: http://this-is-an-open-letter.tumblr.com/post/165706020418/mysticseasons-tessas-instagram-story
LOL Scott had matching hair buns with Tessa back in July!
I wasn't talking about a fluff piece. I was talking about a full hour plus long skating special starring VM, like CBC did with Kurt's You Must Remember This, Brian Orser's two lavish specials, Elvis: Incognito and other big TV skating specials in the 90s. Why would they do that? 1) If a production company wanted to fund it, it wouldn't be a financial burden for CBC, and 2) in an Olympic year, it could easily bring in big ratings, esp. if they aired it during the holiday season or right before the Olympics.But why would they do that for an Olympic fluff piece?
They were being followed around by a CBC film crew at ACI as well.Tessa just posted on Instagram that there is a special VM project they're working on for CBC. Dare I hope for an old-school lavish skating special like the ones CBC used to do so well in the 90s??
PS: For non-Canadians, CBC is our national government-funded media station (TV and radio).
Oh my. Yes! This song is perfect for them to do! After Sochi's Cheek-to-cheek SD, I wouldn't mind another ...
I felt that Tessa began to hold her own starting from when they did that Hip hip chin chin FD routine at Worlds (after surgery). But in Carmen, she shined. First time, I thought she could be equally strong or even stronger than Scott. Maybe this reason Scott also pushed himself to be that. Just thinking of their off ice practice videos. Tessa's better dancer but Scott does hold his own.For me one of the most interesting aspects of V/M's new programs is Scott taking some moments to highlight himself and his own dancing. Usually he's all about making sure your eye is always on Tessa. I wonder what motivated him to make this change.
It's like that now, but I don't think it was much like that before. I always had the impression that they were very traditional ballroom: Tessa is the flower, Scott is the stem. His job is to support her and be complimentary in the movement, so that he doesn't distract. He's said it himself many times -- "if your eye is on Tessa, I've done my job," or words to that effect. I think this is the first season where he's not dancing behind her or looking/pointing at her, but rather dancing looking at the audience and doing something that will make your eye leave her and go to him.What makes me admire them as dance couples is when they dance together, both are willing and respecting to give each other the spotlight. You can still see Tessa let Scott lead and then, Tessa has a turn.
Yes that is true @pani. They are likely the best matched team ever in ice dance. What @sap5 says is true as well. They were very traditional ballroom because that is what the McIntosh and Zueva schools taught. "partnering" , the man's job, is a huge focus in Canadian ice dancing at the early stages as well and Scott has been considered one of the best at this. It is the Gadbois school that designs their programs in the way @sap5 describes. The difference was so obvious in Latch compared to their previous body of work. I love both styles and I loved Latch and what I have seen this past week, so I am lucky!O, guys, i thought from very young age TS were equaly strong in technik and presentation and people talked we didn't have a lot of teams like this.
