    Hmm. First time seeing Chock/Bates. Their skating styles go together but looks wise, I'm not so sure. He's a boy-next-door type, she looks like too much woman for him. Then the height difference. I miss Emily (with him). But no doubt, this team is good too.

    Hurtado/Diaz... her costume is a big mistake. He seems to be a far more elegant skater than she is - or is that just me?

    Oh my gosh. Is it possible for the costumes to get even worse? What the h*** did they put on his arm? A green and yellow duster? And is she going to change her skirt for every season? Autumn leaves, spring flowers, summer breezes, winter snowflakes. I can hardly wait. NOT.

    They seemed to be enjoying themselves, though - and they deserved to! Four years ago there was no Spanish dance program, they had to convince their fed that it was worth doing. It's been quite a learning curve for them and it's wonderful seeing them get noticed. I hope being around better teams and seeing how they work will help their development.

    I think he's probably better than her, yes, but she's a star. In that they kind of remind me of P/B; not that they're similar in most ways, but that's kind of the dynamic with Nathalie and Fabian.

    Thank you for the info on these dancers. My first impression was "At last some genuine Latin spirit" then saw they were from esp

    Oh, I/K were yummy. She's too hot to handle too (like Chock) but he's a bit more in her sexiness league. Hope the other costume designers were looking. Hers looks like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen, but I assume that's intentional.

    doris..I can just see those busy little magpies putting G/B's costumes together ..like in the Disney movies... H/Z's costumes are so Chinese..they're like those fold out paper garlands that you find in the emporiums in Chinatown...

    I too think Sara and Adria bring something very interesting for a team that hasn't been around a long time, they have very interesting lifts that demand a lot of strength, and now it¡s all gaining experience. I hope we get to see more of them.

    I like the lifts they do! I wonder whether they invent them themselves, or whether their coach does?
