I'm glad at least some teams are getting L4s. Hopefully, more teams can clean everything up to 3s and 4s by GPF. I would hate to see strange placements based on fluky lost levels. When you factor in GOE, it magnifies the error by a lot.The top 4 teams at NHK received level 4’s on the pattern. The top 3 got their level raised to level 4 upon review.
Let's see who's on the tech panel/ who's judging, as that will make a big difference between who comes out on top.Also curious to see how S/K and S/B are judged in the same event.
tazmanian twizzle = icedance goal"Tasmanian Twizzles" could definitely be dance fan terminology.
Tasmanian Twizzle: To twizzle by skimming over the ice in wild rotating fashion causing fans to pray thou shalt reach the end of the sequence before disaster strikes.
Note: Not to pick on Nikita. My wonderful Avonley Nguyen has them sometimes too.
We have it in the free. I think it was not foolish for other teams to skip Dirty Dancing. We had three of them three years ago. If it does have a Finnstep, there was always a danger that Kaliszek & Spodyriev might revamp theirs. (As Guignard & Fabbri have now done with Grease). Also while Dirty Dancing is technically a Broadway musical, it is also almost a direct imitation of the movie soundtrack. The songs do not really tell the story, though I assume you would be safe selecting it as it is billed as a musical and the characters sing the words throughout the stage production.I don’t think we got a Dirty Dancing either.
That's asking for a lot and then some. But I get your drift. The 'looks and charisma-wise' uber-talented ice dancer who fits that description went the Fame route (also reminiscent of A Chorus Line).Unless the guy is in the same universe with my beloved Patrick Swayze looks- and charisma-wise, NO Dirty Dancing!
There are plenty of musicals that might have worked tremendously well that did not get chosen, including Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, Bye Bye Birdie (similar to Grease, and likely inspired Grease as well), Gershwin's Who Cares? from the old, obscure musical, Of Thee I Sing, et al.Got to thinking about this over the weekend, after NHK was over and it occurred to me that we didn't get a single Footloose RD this season.
Oh, I agree entirely. The lack of diversity in the RD music selections this season is almost as bad as the tangos last season.There are plenty of musicals that might have worked tremendously well that did not get chosen, including Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, Bye Bye Birdie (similar to Grease, and likely inspired Grease as well), Gershwin's Who Cares? from the old, obscure musical, Of Thee I Sing, et al.
