But I see. Sorry.
I love me a cup of some Shibutani tea! HAHA
They're great! I just wonder what people consider "artistry" if Maia and Alex are lacking it.
They're artistry and performance ability seem evident to me just based on how many people have fallen in love with them as well as their skating. When was the last time a junior dance team commanded this much positive attention/admiration from people in the international skating community? People admire good, even great technicians, but will love/adore skaters whose skating touches their heart.
There are the Zaretiskis, The Kerrs, The Hubbells, The Shibutanis and maybe more sibling teams in Dance and Pairs.
yet some posters insist that they do not like siblings in competitions. Other than the romantic angle, what would be wrong with siblings skating together? I don't think dancing has to be romantic, but there should be rapport.
