Move over BOLERO!!!
Move over BOLERO!!!
the suspense is killing me!
They're both so good. But despite being for V/M, I liked W/D a bit better today, but of course I am no expert in ice dancing, so it is just an impression.
every time I see D/W's FD I like it less and less. I almost loved it at SA but tonight it does nothing to me I don't know why... I know that the execution of elements was excellent as always but I find the dance itself quite boring.
WIn in FD and overall!
I just can't feel the emotions from D/W, no matter how good the skate is. Is this what we want the ice dance to become? Emotionless circus?
.05 difference!!! Yikes!!!
.05 difference in FD scores? Holy moly! Hope we get another Doris thread.
Meryl with the French response- show off!!!
Apple123: Circus? That's a very mistaken way to describe this program. If anything it's a throwback to a much more refined and elegant style, but updated to have the speed, complexity, and exciting lifts of today.
I agree to some extent with aniela that none of their performances has surpassed the first one at Skate America. I will have to rewatch carefully to see if it's them or me.
V/M have really pulled their program up and it should be neck and neck at Worlds. Exciting!
I really like Meryl's softer makeup today. Very becoming!
I DO feel emotions from the skating of Meryl and Charlie and this dance suits them as a couple.
I think the chemistry between them has improved during last season when the sensual and passionate tango was really off during the firs few performances.
This dance however was from the first public performance so well for them. Waltz is not easy to keep interesting in free dance and they manage to do it.
Without seeing the levels, it appears that both D/W and V/M got higher levels on their footwork sequences. Likely at least one level 4 for each team. Tessa and Scott really brought the attack to their dance. I still wish the curve lift looked more smooth on the entrance and overall. Meryl and Charlie really stood up to the pressure. Very clean. There's still room for improvement with both teams. Still, clearly when both teams hit everything and get the same maxed out levels, the judges find it very hard to split them. Looks like 4CC and Worlds will be awesome. Can't wait.
