I have watched numerous programs by Torvill/Dean, and what always amazes me is how they used dance to really express the music. They didn't leave anything behind, every music phrase was perfectly linked to their choreography. I saw this in A/P's Carmina Burana for example(suprise suprise, they choregraphed it), and in some moments of other programs by other skaters(K/P's olympic free as well). But usually today's programs are nothing like T/D's.
And I ask myself, why? Is it because of the techincal demands of today's ice-dance programs that don't really give room for true choreography?
I think that it has a lot to do with it. What's your opinion?
