    CD-Tango Romantica

    The entries for this competition are:

    1 Vanessa CRONE / Paul POIRIER CAN
    2 Lucie MYSLIVECKOVA / Matej NOVAK CZE
    3 Carolina HERMANN / Daniel HERMANN GER
    4 Anna CAPPELLINI / Luca LANOTTE ITA
    5 Katherine COPELY / Deividas STAGNIUNAS LTU
    6 Anastasia PLATONOVA / Alexander GRACHEV RUS
    7 Ekaterina RIAZANOVA / Ilia TKACHENKO RUS
    8 Ekaterina RUBLEVA / Ivan SHEFER RUS
    9 Alla BEKNAZAROVA / Vladimir ZUEV UKR (Withdrew)
    10 Meryl DAVIS / Charlie WHITE USA

    The order of skate has not yet been posted, but they will skate in the reverse order of their ISU standings as of the start of the competition:

    That should be:
    1 Riazanova & Tkachenko (94th) - however they are a new team this season.
    2 Platonova & Grachev (37th)
    3 Hermann & Hermann (31st)
    4 Beknazarova & Zuev (29th) withdrew
    5 Mysliveckova & Novak (26th)
    6 Rubleva & Shefer (24th)
    7 Copely & Stagniunas (22nd)
    8 Capellini & Lanotte (15th)
    9 Crone & Poirier (11th)
    10 Davis & White (3rd )


    The dance for the CD is the TANGO ROMANTICA, which is skated only in senior competition. It has not been done that recently in competition prior to this year (edited to add most recently in 2005/2006, but not at Worlds or Olympics). The last season it was used (edited to add at Worlds) was the 2002/2003 season in Seniors. (Edited) Rubleva & Shefer did skate it at 2006 Russian Nationals. It was, however, used at Nebelhorn this year, so Davis & White, Copely & Stagniunas, Riazanova & Tkachenko, Mysliveckova & Novak, Hermann & Hermann have all skated it, at least that one time in international competion..

    Here's how those teams scored there:

    1 Meryl DAVIS / Charlie WHITE USA 37.62 19.54 18.08 7.25 7.10 7.25 7.35 0.00 #7

    3 Ekaterina RIAZANOVA / Ilia TKACHENKO RUS 31.64 17.56 14.08 5.70 5.40 5.70 5.80 0.00 #8

    4 Katherine COPELY / Deividas STAGNIUNAS LTU 31.23 17.38 13.85 5.75 5.25 5.60 5.60 0.00 #17

    8 Lucie MYSLIVECKOVA / Matej NOVAK CZE 28.85 15.94 12.91 5.25 5.05 5.05 5.30 0.00 #5

    10 Carolina HERMANN / Daniel HERMANN GER 26.13 14.36 11.77 4.85 4.50 4.80 4.70 0.00 #4

    Music - Tango 4/4
    Temp - 28 measures of 4 beats per minute; 112 beats per minute
    Pattern - Optional
    Duration - The time required to skate 2 sequences is 1:43 min

    "This is a romantic sinuous dance which expresses the soft, lyrical interpretive characteristics of the Tango. It must be skated with deep edges. Foot and body movements must be deliberate and convey a sense of dignity approaching arrogance. Very erect carriage, precise timing, and continuous flow must be maintained. The difficulty of the steps should not be revealed in awkward or stressed upper body positions. Finally, coordination of free leg movements is essential to avoid a tangled, confused effect."
    The dance was invented by Ludmilla Pakhomova, Alexander Gorshkov and Elena Tchaikovskaya.

    First Performance - Moscow, 1974

    Apparently Beknazarova/Zuev have just withdrawn . Their names are scratched from the ISU entries page :

    I doubt there is enough time for a replacement

    The tango Romantica is OK but I prefer the Argentine Tango and since this is probably the last or second to last season with CDs I wish all competitions had the Golden Waltz

    Not a surprise, as Zuev has been injured :(
    I'm sorry to hear that they had to withdraw.

    You're right-I didn't think it got drawn that year, and it wasn't at worlds or Olympics So anyone at 2006 Europeans or 2006 4CC's will have skated it in competition. Also at Russian Nationals, so probably Rubleva and Shefer have skated it. (I have edited the initial post to reflect this).

    BTW

    Page 10 has the current deductions and things to watch for in judging the Tango Romantica, according to the ISU.
