    I'll be doing a live play by play of this event as well over at http://icemusings.blogspot.com/2011/...ort-dance.html. Can't wait to see these Latin dances!

    Any chance anyone's managed to find a live feed other than ice network?

    C/L USA are a gorgeous couple. She manages to look endlessly rapturous in the first section. Sure reminds me of Meryl. Did not find her as convincing in the vigorous second section.

    I liked H/D as well. His costume is hot in a 70's kind of way. She needs better hair and costuming.

    LOVE the Lithuanians. Oops... I mean, the part-Lithuanian couple skating for Lithuania. She's Jessica Simpson on ice. Not that I like JS but the resemblance is striking from afar. More importantly she's a fabulous dancer.

    circular step could be closer together
    2nd rhumba sequence some difficulty
    2nd twizzle set out of synch a bit

    Alexandra Paul & Mitchell Islam CAN
    2046 Main Theme (Rhumba Version)
    The Havana Slido by Jon Cohen
    dark purple diagonal cut skirt. lots of spanglies on one side of the top. Another v neck black onesie with sparklies
    She falls down on opening moves. She doesn't recover quickly.
    lift he's a little shaky on one foot.
    rhumba sequence ok.
    They exit from it in an unattractive way that might be another screw up.
    The twizzles are nice and close together. Circular step. He trips. Then she falls again. They do not get back together quickly . Sort of a lop sided swing to end.
    They will want to forget this.

    She fell twice and he tripped once. See Doris' explanations above.

    Thanks! I didn't see that post until after I replied. It sounds like it really wasn't their day. Any impressions on the program, though? Does it look like it could be a good vehicle, if they skate it clean?

    Do You Only Wanna Dance
    Asher has a blue v neck shirt with black pants. Kharis has the same blue & silver dress as at Nebelhorn, as nearly as I can tell.She has some kind of blue sequinned ornament in her hair, too.

    good speed. A little wild.
    steps.
    into slow drums Harlem Nocturne
    straight line lift, she stands on his foot
    twizzles a little slow and spinny, but done
    into rhumba sequence
    she ducks through his legs to the final pose.

    Carol Lane says, "tidy" "tidy" like she wishes they would be more tidy.

    27.79 24.89 52.68 into 1st. Very good for them.


    Nelli Zhiganshina & Alexander Gaszi GER
    Rhumba: Desperados (from "Once Upon a Time in Mexico)
    Samba
    He's in a black bolero vest white shirt and black pants. She's in a diagonal skirt with dark blue and red floral top..

    into rhumba sequence
    circular not touching step a bit far apart
    jump into twizzles, 2nd set on same foot as first, without putting a foot down ok!
    second rhumba sequence
    stop. (seemed too abrupt)

    They have the same costumes they have used before in olive, white and chartreuse. She has blue feathery things on one shoulder.

    Misinformation from the commentator. They were in Skate America in 2006-2007 season. This is not their first SA.

    lift complex but not tidy yet.
    rhumba sequences
    circular step
    twizzle in the step; he falls
    rhumba sequence
    samba stuff
    twizzles crossing and untidy on the 2nd, third set ok
    Is there something wrong with the ice? There are just too many mishaps tonight.

    great step and decent Latin
    twizzles done not their best
    rhumba sequence

    and they interrupt for a sign for the rugby world cup. This is so rotten

    Loudest ovation for the whole night.
    We get to see them bow.

    lift good on replay

    Thanks everyone for tuning in! It really was a shame about Paul and Islam's falls as the program was really lovely and it looked like they had a lot to work with!
