    I'm looking forward to the Dance, such a strong field.

    Good Luck to the Kerrs, I'm sure they'll skate much better than at SA.

    I'm predicting a DelSchoes win!
    [Even though I'm sure that Belgosto will have improved since CoC].

    I love Dom Shabs' CDs, but I didn't really care for the FD at CoC, though their OD is good.

    Exciting event.....all the way down the field!

    The Kerrs, unfortunately got stuck with an outrageous attempt to portray the suppresed people of America and in a Hollywood version of what happens to people who do not obey the ruling class.

    The Kerrs have so much more talent than to be subjected to that.

    OK, I'm new to ice-dancing so maybe I'm missing something, but I didn't see any politics in that Indian dance. I thought their getup was quite attractive, in the same fluttering-rag style as everyone else.

    Didn't the Kerrs realize that Native American themes don't go over well with the European judges, who dominate all judging panels? Dubreuil/Lauzon did one a couple of years ago (Patrice, I believe, is part Native) and it went over with a resounding thud.

    That's the funniest thing I've read for ages!

    That's like saying Bourne & Kraatz's Riverdance FD was "an attempt to portray" the Potato Famine!

    Actually, the truth of the matter is they didn't "get stuck" with anything, they chose the Music to "Last of The Mohicans" and choreographed the Dance themselves, after previously using this theme [choreo'd by the Duchesnay's] in 2000 when they first teamed up.

    As to chuckm's point:

    The Beier's had a similar theme 2 seasons ago, and not only was it a very good dance, well interpreted, but it went down well with the Judges too.

    BTW there's a whole wide world out there, and people, whether it be in Skating or otherwise, see things very diferently.

    Presumably this comment means you assume that Platov is responsible?

    Just to confirm, Platov choreo'd their OD this season, but not the FD [inspite of what you may've read elsewhere].
