The en pointe part is indeed awkward but I wouls say given the program and what it portrays, almost obligatory. People liked it better when Oksana swaned around. She was awkward too but folks acted like she was an artiste+ and nancy was some poor shlep. But that was 1994. I hope we see new programs From AW and I agree she can really move to upbeat, young, club music. But judges want that left in the exhibitions, it seems. Who would win an OGM skating to JLo's 'On the Floor.'? So there you have it.
