People underestimate Tessa because she has this exquisite smileing face but its not just the facial expression with her its the dance movements that bring in the passion. Their worlds 2010 Farrucas is an example - they were a little more tentative at the Olys but didnt hold back at the worlds.
To each his own. In my mind overt smouldering is too theatrical and over the top.
Hmm.. Difficult to say anything without seeing the whole dance. Aren't they slower, or it's just training...
The FD is replete with body grabbing and simulated passion. Just a more 'physical' take on that oh-we're-so-in-love V/M shtick.
This dance must be really good, wow why so bitter?
Why must someone be accused of being bitter just because they criticize V/M?This dance must be really good, wow why so bitter?
The dance looks very meh to me. But I'm not really blown away by anyone's FD this year. I had to chuckle when P.J Kwong said that Carmen requires a diva presence on the ice, and that was Tessa Virtue. I think Tessa is a fabulous skater who brings many things to the ice, but a diva presence isn't one of them.
I just saw the practice and thought it was fantastic! Don't know what people think is lacking.
V/M's Carmen is impressive.I love it.
To each their own... i'm not impressed with either of Marina's top teams... it just seems too disconnected... *and yes I know V/M's practice was not a full program, I am talking mainly of D/W's FD* I'm also not encouraged by all the hugging/headgrabbing... they said they were going to be unique in their take... if they mean with added crotch grabbing then...
So are we just not gonna talk about the immense amount of crotch/face interaction going on in V/M's FD?
