    14 step - / he doesn't point his toes on the swing rolls / end steps are too far apart and not smooth / 15.07 / 2nd /

    CAN Maekawa / Maekawa Start No: 4
    Notes: both in black her with lace skirt
    14 step - cute opening / the music for all the teams is "Consider yourself' / timing is good - need to work a bit on line and extension / end pattern steps were nicely done - close together / 16.99 /

    Notes: her in red with one shoulder him in white tuxedo shirt /
    foxtrot / neither of them point their toes or turn their free leg out / timing seems pretty good / steps are a bit ragged and she tends to jumps /chotcaw 16.46
    American Waltz - she's now in pink / timing is pretty good but they're just that tiny bit out of sync with each other that they don't have the lilt / neither extends their free leg enough / 15.14 / tot 15.8 /

    CAN Tan / Derry Start No: 2
    Notes: quite a difference in heigh between them / her in dark green
    Foxtrot - / smoother than the 1st team and she's very nice on the chotcaw / they match legs quite well, esp with the height difference. Niether of them extend their free leg or point their toes very well / timing seemed good / 19.12 /
    American Waltz - skated 1st / bit of an almost false start / their free legs are moving pretty much together but lines don’t quite match - pattern a little shallow / timing seemed ok for the most part / 16.2 / 17.66 overall

    CAN Scott / Ahluwalia Start No: 3
    Notes: black velvet with white trim
    Foxtrot - / nice lilt in the chotcaw / there's a real nice smoothness to most of their dance and their leg lines match quite well / 22.23 /
    American Waltz - very nice lilt to the dance and the 3turns seem right on with the timing and are very neat / they looked very matched in their line & extension - pretty dance to watch / 24.58 ./ tot 23.49

    Novice Dance Compulsory Dance

    CAN Rithaler / Rithaler Start No: 1
    Notes: very very dark green velvet with white skirt & sleeves /
    Starlight Waltz - he slipped & fell where they change to open position at the end of 1st pattern / I'm not sure of the timing on this dance or the exact steps / they seemed to be rushing it in places though / free legs need more extension / 18.0 /
    Blues - she caught her edge in the 1st end pattern swing roll / they match well, but seem to be skating slow - nice blues feel for most of the steps but lose it somewhat on the side pattern / 18.01 / tot 18.01

    CAN Clegg / Rossol Start No: 2
    Notes: her in yellow with sequin floral design down front (very nice) him in white tuxedo shirt with yellow tie & cummerbund /
    starlight waltz - very nice matching lines & flow / good waltz feel / it seemed to me that they might have been rushing the dance a bit at times, but that could be because I don't know the dance / 22.46 /
    Blues - him now in black shirt her in dark navy with open back / nice match between them and good blues feel / their back outside rolls at each corner of the rink aren't quite deep enough or something - they just don't feel quite right / 20.94 / tot 21.7 /

    CAN Marlo / Cant Start No: 3
    Notes: her in purple him in white shirt with purple vest /
    Starlight waltz - lost contact on the position change on 1st pattern and missed a couple of steps / she seems to jump the Choctaw / nice matching line but both could extend more / 20.98 /
    Blues - they've both changed him in a black shirt her in black & blue dress / timing seems pretty good / they're just that tiny bit out of sync with their free legs that makes it look a bit ragged at times / edges and lean aren't as deep as they could be / 21.25 / tot 21.12

    CAN Van Soeren / Denney Start No: 4
    Notes: her in white him in white shirt & black pants /
    Starlight Waltz - nice lilt to their dance - very nice on the change of position / opening steps in the dance looked like chasis with this team, with the other 2 I thought they were progressives - not sure which is correct - with the scores given, I'd say that this team was correct / 23.07 / 1st
    Blues - both in black now / nice matching lines and lilt / feels like a blues / 24.13 / tot 23.61 /

    Too bad Natalie and Will Rithaler didn't do better :( They've been friends of mine since they were super little and I'd love it if they had skated their best.

    Thanks for posting all these! It's great to read your review
