    OD report

    Khokhlova/Novitsky, Tango Jalousie

    Sp, he sit, she B., he stand, she upsidedown split
    SBS, weird patter more of serpantine along the long axis
    SlLi,, he spread, she upside down
    DiSt
    RoLi, she hangs of his neck

    They do not seem to have the power of the top teams and their flow was somewhat lacking (but OTOH I think everyone except for DenSta did notnhave a good flow either). But it is a very original original dance.

    Gregory/Petukhov, La Cumprasita, Tanguera

    SBS, Tw out of unison, not sure if they did the same number of rotations
    SlLi, change of pose for her
    Sp, very "wide" hB, not sure if she met "less than 2 blade lengths or whatever
    DiSt
    RoLi, 1 hand, slow

    Very weak. I thought Kh&N did not "belong", but they "belong" even less. Her posture is very bad and their (her) expression is just sooo artificial and trying too hard that it almost look like a parody.

    Delobel/Schoenfelder, Tango Volver

    SBS,
    Sp, painful bielman and b2h
    SlLi, low balance one
    DiSt
    RoLi, change of pose

    I thought they lacked their usual flow and "easiness" of movement, OTOH they edgework is so perfect that even a no-nothings about dance like me might probably read their steps if I concentrate hard enough because their edges are so pronounced

    Domnina/Shabalin, Piazzolla Tango

    SBS, she had to check for balance on one of the tw, but recovered
    SlLi, nice balance lift, she "wrap" her leg around his
    Sp, ok
    DiSt
    RoLi, she in half-donut

    Overall they skated better in Moscow, or may be it's just me, unaccostumed to seeing dance from so far above that the dances fell flat. Well, at least they did have a good flow and shape.

    Dubreil/Lauzon, Le Vos de Buenos Aires

    SBS, tw out of sych
    SlLi, she stands on his hip
    Sp, sit, layback
    DiSt
    RoLi, cool one with change of position and very appropriate for tango

    Nice lines, good understated expression. Well done, but it could use more flow and smoothness.

    Denkova/Staviisky, Libertangoa

    SBS, nice flow, the only one of six teams
    SlLi, "kiss lift"
    Sp, ok
    DiSt, she had a stumble toward the end
    RoLi, 1hand, still slow, labored and unattractive

    Choreographically, in terms of number of transitions and so on its a cut above the rest, but they did made a mistake

    thanks for the reports Anna. Over at FSU they are watching the CCTV5 feed of the original dances. Scroll down and you can see their comments. Interesting that people watch the same thing and get different opinions. Love reading everyone's different comments. http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...t=45525&page=7

    Anna as i read you report,looks like you have seen the total lack of unison in the D/L twizzles. Isn't this also a mistake?

    They got level 3 for their Tw, so it might have been something "deductable", I don't rememeber the dance rules by heart. They got positive GOE on it, though.
