Status of Canadian Senior and Junior Dance teams for next season?
With the shock of the Crone/Poirier announcement, I thought I'd start a thread to see what teams are still together at Senior based on this past season's list, and what teams are still together at Junior. Which one's are moving up from Junior to Senior the coming season? I've highlighted in red the ones where there have been announcements, or one partner and/or the other has appeared on icepartnersearch. Any new teams forming out of the splits? Any completely new teams we haven't met yet?
Tessa Virtue / Scott Moir
Vanessa Crone / Paul Poirier
Kaitlyn Weaver / Andrew Poje
Alexandra Paul / Mitchell Islam
Kharis Ralph / Asher Hill
Tarrah Harvey / Keith Gagnon
Sarah Arnold / Justin Trojek
Alexa-Marie Arrotta / Martin Nickel
Audrey Dupont / Marcus Connolly
Helene Letourneau / Kevin Boczar
Anne Chloe Bissonnette / Dylan Lockey Chatham
Nicole Orford / Thomas Williams
Kelly Oliveira / Jordan Hockley
Victoria Hasegawa / Connor Hasegawa
Andréanne Poulin / Marc-André Servant
Élisabeth Paradis / François-Xavier Ouellette
Laurence Fournier Beaudry / Yoan Breton
Laurence Darveau / Jonathan Arcieri
Larissa Van As / Troy Shindle
Carolane Soucisse / Benjamin Smyth
Jade Marrow / Allan Stoll
Josyane Cholette / Simon Proulx-Sénécal
Olga Lioudvinevitch / Benjamin Mulder
Sara Aghai / Qwynn Dalmer
Sarah Clarke / Steven Clarke
Jazz Smyl Joly / Ryan Behnia
What about; Fournier & Green SR '09, Ramful & OLson SR '09, Lysne & Steeves SR '09, ST.Onge & Browne JR '09, Good & Delauriers JR '09, Viau & Lapointe JR '09, none of which competed at Nats in 2010 or 2011 except ST. Onge & Browne who placed 11th at JR Can Nats 2010. I hate that C&P have split , it really shocked and stunned me, in fact I would have been less shocked if V&M announced their retirement!! But we have a lot of good Jr teams on the up swing. If Paul is inded looking for another partner he need look no further than our own pool of outstanding Dancing Queens, I would say right off the bat to go for Jade Marrow, but she is way too young and also too tall , she is a great ice dancer in the making! Other noteables are Karen Routhier 20, Sophie Knippel 22, Patricia Stuckey another IMO great dancer, I would also say Joanna Lenko 19 ,but I think she has health problems.
Fournier/Green have split. Green retired after Fournier suffered a season ending injury. I dont know if Fournier is looking or not but she would definitely be a good candidate to partner Poirier.
Since Oliviera skates out of the same rink as Poirier it wouldn't suprise me to hear that they have paired up. I'm not sure how well they would match up but I suspect the Lanes will try it out.

My fondest wish is that if Poirier can't find a partner that he and Crone would get back together again. I will really miss this team............so much darn potential.
I have another list of teams that I do not know the status of, all of whom did not qualify for Can Nats 2011; Salvagna & Lettner, Cyr & Brisebois-Gaudreau, Ritchie- Herveux & Masse, Dumas & Quintal, Sears & Mackay-Perry. I have Khong & Khong as retired, as well as McCuish & Morris, Carswell & Doleman, Kirkland & Buron, old news I know but just keeping track. Does anyone know when the Grand Prix lists will be out ? it was out by June 13 last year.
Last season i like Élisabeth Paradis / François-Xavier Ouellette at Nationals. Cant remember, where did they finished, but this girl really enjoy dancing and there FD look full of dance spirit. Hope they will improved in next season and Luazon will made for them interesting programs,
Sara Aghai / Qwynn Dalmer had very unusuall FD last season. Hope Sara will find new patner - she is small (i mean height) and show good virtuosity (IMHO)
Sarah Arnold / Justin Trojek left Paul MacIntosh/Rebecca Babb and working with Pasquel now. Dont know, this team didnt impressed me last 2 seasons, but maybe they will show inteersting choreo? Look like Krylove-Kamerlengo school become so big, like Zueva-Shpilband have. Could they work all this out? Dont know - will see.
And i feel sorry for MacIntosh - Poje and V-M are his skaters, but now he didnt have skaters, who could take place at National team. Maybe he need Suzzy Killing back?
And who become team number 1 in Lane-Razgulyevs school? Kharis Ralph / Asher Hill? Could they improved and take higher place at Nationals? Because now it look like W-P and P-I are clear leaders. If V-M will not compete next season, R-H could made place at WCh team. I was impressed with there speed at TEB this season, but they have a lot off work with postures, lines.
And again - any information about V-M? Did they start traning or no? Where they wil made anounsment?
And feel sorry for C-P break-up. Why did they made this? Sad.....
Draw will be June 24-25

Looks like the new team Abby Carswell / Simon Tanguay can be added to the Canadian junior dance team list. They have paired up and will be skating at the Pierrefonds competition in August.

Yeah, I don't see what other partners at their level Poirier OR Crone are going to find for next season. They must have had huge issues to break up like this. If they end up skating with people below their level they will end up doing 'worse' than they would have together (notice worse is in quotations - I'm NOT saying they were/are bad!)
