Original Dance Report
SlLi, she balance wrapping her leg around his
RoLi, she in half-donut
Very precise and sharp, but I’ve seen him skate this program with more expression.
SlLi, he sits, she leans back to the cie
SBS, she stumbled after the end of the sequence
Sp she in b2h
RoLi, she in half B.
Rather solid, but not very expressive
SBS, out of unison
RoLi 1 hand
CoSp, both sit, he stand, she Y // both sit
CuLi, he spread, she hangs between his legs
I missed the DiSt. Weak, with no expression or precision.
CoSp, she upturned cam, sit // sit, B.
SlLi, he spreadeagle, she upside down
RoLi, she in hB on his neck.
Better than in Moscow. He is very much in character, she is “in” and “out” of it. Sometimes too cheerful, sometimes to dramatic.
Sp, he sit, she in B, he stands, she in upside down split
SlLi, he in spreadeagle, she upside down
RoLi, she hangs on his neck
Very well done, smooth, powerful, excellent speed.
SlLi, low to the ice
SBS, far apart and slow
RoLi, 1 hand hB
Good, but not very expressive, horrible costumes.
SlLi, he 1 feet
RoLi 1 hand
Good choreography, intricate changes of holds, not much of expression. I suppose horrible costumes for Lobacheva/Averbukh were Linichuk’s ideas, because Irina students are very well dressed.
SlLi he sits, she leans forward
DiSt not enough flow
RoLi 1 hand, bending at waist
I thought Pla/Max were better technically, but Rub/Sch had better expression, attack and power.
