    Compulsory Dance

    The golden waltz is a hard dance. I missed B/B, C/J and R/S.

    hubbells 27.17 1st
    Nice light character but a a bit heavy in execution
    good extension; quite good edges
    klutzy in twizzles-hop 3 turns
    overall a fair dance.

    Navarro & Bommentre 29.19
    Kim in fuchsia v necked number with elbow high white gloves
    Kim much smoother on the turns than Hubbells; less hopping going on
    Still a little too serious
    and a little too far apart.
    Definitely better to me.

    Currently in warmup

    OK they are back

    Gorshkova Butikov 29.56
    She in sleeveless bright yellow with a thick feather ruff at the skirt hem. A bit too footy in the quick turns and rather academic overall. One or two discomfortable leans. I don't think this was better than NavBoms.

    Virtue &Moir 38.41
    all in black-black elbow gloves and bare shoulder sleeveless dress for Tessa
    Much better but Tessa's solo turn is not good. They need some practice. This may be beatable.
    Good side by side f/w though! Much closer together than previous couples, but not always uniform
    I found this rather overscored.

    Pechalat Bourzat 35.53
    He in lt grey brown tux & pants, she in sugar plum fairy pink puff tutu dress
    Very, very nice dance. Very close, fast, light hearted. A little better leg line needed in a couple places.
    About the same as V&M.. Particularly Nathalie's solo turn was smooth and integral to the dance, much better than Tessa's
    Judges don't agree with me and crowd is annoyed.

    Samuelson Bates 31.11
    Emily in white backless, sleeveless dress with high collar and white elbow gloves. Evan typical black tux.
    You can tell they are trained by the same coaches as Hubbells-nice extension and leg line but lack of smoothness
    on the turns (better than Hubbells though) You can tell this is a new dance to them

    Kerr Kerr 36.13
    John in black tux. Sinead in an all white with big colored stones version of a tango dress-diagonal cut skirt with ruffles and all
    White elbow gloves.
    Lovely, light frivolous lilting character. Better leg line than P&B.
    Some jumpiness to some turns.
    I liked it very much. Wow, so do the judges!
