    Ice - make and then group 3 is up. . . sorry for the dance notes not being that great - I find the free dance the most difficult to do a play-by-play of.

    FRA Brouille / Rchaud Start No: 13
    Notes: Music: Steppe, Weather Storm, Xotica / white with grey/black tied dye or painted effect him with partial orange tshirt / weird (to my ears) music to start and suitable weird movement / twizzle set in sync / O ftwrk moves well twizzles within it in sync I think / some interesting? Moves into spin that was ok / I missed part of the lift, what I saw was good - usual her wrapped around him pos / lots of danicing in place at end of boards as Xotica starts / not sure about twizzles in midline they may have been out on the 2nd ones / rot lift into closing pose / Not sure if I liked this dance (that isn't to say that it was or wasn't good), I think maybe the odd music at the start put me off / 60.55 in free tot 126.55 into 3rd overall /

    RUS Mikhailova / Sergeev Start No: 20
    Notes: Music: Adagio (modern) / both in very dark green with silver sequins her dress is mostly semi sheer / nice flowing moves to start/ 1st twizzles very fast & together a little out on 2nd ones / strt lift to curve with change of pos - very nice / O ftwrk expressed the music well - maybe a little slow across the ice - not sure if twizzles were quite in sync / then I missed the curve lift / S ftwrk might be very difficult but almost comes to a stop a couple of times and then he had trouble with twizzle at end of boards and fell out of it into boards / spin was quite nice / I must admit that it went by very fast and that's usually a sign of a good dance, so maybe my critisims aren't correct? Not sure -- I'd need to see it again / 78.75 in the free tot 168.41 into 1st overall /
