    Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir

    I noticed that there isn't a fan thread for Tessa and Scott (my favorite ice dance team)
    Let's use this thread to bask in Tessa and Scott's amazing skating!





    Their ISU biography

    Link to the seven episodes of the Tessa and Scott TV show

    I can't wait to see it either!
    Also I can't wait to see how their programs are coming along. I wasn't completely sold on their SD, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Carmen and can't wait to see it more polished. I also can't wait to see their SD with them going all out and (hopefully) not punching each other!

    For the record I did a search on Ryan Pyette's articles about Virtue and Moir in the London, ONT Free Press:

    http://www.lfpress.com/search?cx=016...176j1448502j43

    Among those articles are plenty of articles about Carmen and it's evolution over the season so I thnk the people who are complaining about the lack of V/M articles either aren't making the effort to search for them (as they are not familiar with Ryan's work) .

    Another nice article, an interview with Jennifer Swan, the dancer who has been responsible for much of Tessa & Scott's choreography this year:

    Virtue and Moir are hometown favourites (Mar 4 CTV London video)

    Virtue and Moir are hometown favourites (Mar 4 video)
    CTV London: As the World Figure Skating Championships arrive, family and friends will be cheering the local champions. Brent Lale explains.

    2:01 video from CTV London -- including a sentence or two from Moir, with Virtue at his side.

    The family members seen and heard making comments are not identified, but I'm pretty sure that they are (not in order):
    - Virtue's father
    - Moir's father
    - Moir's mother (unless I have her confused with Aunt Carol?)
    - Moir's brother, I think? (if not, the guy still must be related to Scott; the resemblance is very strong)

    I am in the U.S. and was able to view the video.

    ETA: CTV tried to reach V/M choreographer Jennifer Swan via Twitter, but she does not appear in this story.

    Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir

    For others who couldn't watch the CBC broadcast, Doc Zone's "Ice, Sweat, and Tears" has been posted on Youtube. Super cute Tessa and Scott moments! (But aren't they all?!)

    In the 2013 Worlds thread Imaginary Pogue posted the thought that we’re going to see aV/M balletic program in Olympic season. So I thought it might be fun to think of which ballets might be good fits. 

    Obviously, Giselle is out. I don't think any of the Petipa ones quite suit, so no Raymonda, La Bayadere, Sleeping Beauty, Don Quixote, and yes, no Swan Lake (too obvious). And can you imagine Scott as Siegfried? Solor? Florimund? He is a better fit as Basilio, but I can't quite imagine Tessa as Kitri. Though I would pay big money for Scott to ham it up (a la Ethan Steifel) as Conrad from the pirate ballet Le Corsaire.

    Something along the lines of Romeo and Juliet (Prokofiev score) is more their style, I think. MacMillan choreography (I prefer it over Lavrovsky’s).
    Alessandra Ferri and Julio Bocca, balcony pas de deux (Act 1): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXeTOhrkLsg
    Tamara Rojo and Carlos Acosta, morning pas de deux: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4_9PLsd2CU

    Kenneth MacMillan’s 'Manon', music by Jules Massenet.
    Royal Ballet 2011 trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wctQ7DZhhXc
    Diana Vishneva and Marcelo Gomes, bedroom pas de deux: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQrybViwcLE

    Frederick Ashton's 'Marguerite and Armand', music by Liszt.
    Kristina Shapran and Sergei Polunin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQ_23DeNdh0

    Antony Tudor's 'The Leaves Are Fading, music by Dvorak'. Somebody *please* skate to this…
    Leslie Browne and Robert Hill (ABT): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srTZxXVmsns

    If they want to go 'Russian', 'Anna Karenina' and 'Onegin' have ballet adaptations. (Please look up a Russian ballet diva like Vishneva on YT. )

    If they want a big, clap-along crowd pleaser, Ponchielli's 'Dance of the Hours' is a popular ballet within the opera 'La Gioconda'--if they don't mind competing against childhood’s Disney images of dancing alligators and hippopotamuses. :D
    Letizia Giuliani and Angel Corella, Barcelona production (not safe for work): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aZcii9jwEw

    I actually want them to do a program along the likes of William Forsythe’s ‘In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated’ (music by Thom Willems). But because their more modern/abstract programs like Pink Floyd and Carmen don’t fare as well compared to their more conventional Cherbourg and Mahler, they likely won’t go further down this route. They’ll probably play it safe next season.
    Sylvie Guillem, Paris Opera Ballet (at 0:03): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLWDtbHNzxw
    Sylvie Guillem and Laurent Hilaire, the fabulous final pas de deux: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVWf-JDw8CQ

    There are also contemporary ballets from Alexei Ratmansky, Stanton Welch and Christopher Wheeldon.
    Ratmansky in rehearsal with Pacific Northwest Ballet for his work ‘Concerto DSCH’ (music: Shostakovich): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEtUn9Q-MhI
    Wheeldon choreographed the Rachmaninov ballet ‘Sergei’ (Ilia Kulik) danced in the film Center Stage. Starts at about 1:38 for this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5nvARS2bus
    Trailer for Stanton Welch’s poignant ‘Clear’ (music: Bach), Barcelona Ballet (formerly Corella Ballet): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFDEgU7ME4M
    Clip for ‘Clear’, with ABT’s marvelous Herman Cornejo partnering Kazuko Omori in a pas de deux: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27Khha1NISM

    They could get inspiration from Balanchine’s numerous plot-less, dance-driven ballets. I say ‘inspiration’, because the Balanchine Trust is notoriously protective of his choreography…
    ‘Jewels ‘ trailer, Bolshoi Ballet production: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHOa0eJ0NY8
    ‘Jewels’ (‘ Emeralds’) excerpt, music by Faure, (NYCB) Merrill Ashley and Gerald Ebitz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=612BYyU1f5s
    ‘Jewels’ (‘Rubies’) excerpt, music by Stravinsky, Houston Ballet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZafvqN2cHIA I love the ‘chicken wing’ arms, such fun!
    ‘Jewels’ (‘Diamonds’) pas de deux, music by Tchaikovsky, (NYCB) Suzanne Farrell and Peter Martins: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WOwWjwm-QY Olga Smirnova and Semyon Chudin also did a wonderful interpretataion of this for the Bolshoi.
    ‘Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux’, Patricia McBride and Mikhail Baryshnikov: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99tpTW-bxWk
    ‘Theme and Variations’, music by Tchaikovsky, (ABT) Gelsey Kirkland (sublime!) and Mikhail Baryshnikov (legendary!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgCareuuxK4

    There are other ballets which might also be fitting for V/M, but who knows what programs they and Marina will come up with. It will be very interesting to find out.
