Monko and Khaliavin: Talented dancers look for top spot in Juniors
Russia's Ksenia Monko and Kirill Khaliavin had a real break-through season this past year. They won their two Junior Grand Prix (JGP) events, the JGP Final, and earned the bronze medal at Junior Worlds. The year before, they didn't even make it to the Final, let alone to Junior Worlds, as competition in ice dance in Russia is very tough.

It's interesting that they stayed in Juniors to build up ISU points: a smart decision, I think.
Padam, Padam works really well with the either the Viennese or Golden Waltz: several teams used it at LPIDC. It's a good choice for them!
