Part 3 (2:19)
Moir discusses their choice of Carmen
Thanks for the links golden411! We have a Canadian dance & an American dance thread, and the Tessa & Scott and Meryl & Charlie fans seemed to post there rather than creating a Fan Fest thread. I so glad both teams now have their own fan fest threads. They are both very special teams, and I am not looking forward to the 2014-2015 when one or both teams will be retired. I am just enjoying them now.
And golden, thanks so much for posting those videos!
Also, here's a picture of their last rotational lift
I was surprised there wasn't a thread for Tessa and Scott so I started one but again surprisingly all their fans didn't keep it up and so it was archived. Maybe it's good now that there is a Fan Fest section so this thread will be kept in perpetualty.
Love their Carmen! They are superb in choreography, techniques, and performance. Like their new take on the relationship too, with Carmen being the eventually defiant and triumph one. Power to the femme fatale!
Anyone going to nats please let me know and I can give you the banner I made for T&S. T&S said they got 2 banner in Russia but dont get any in Canada so would appreciate this.
I want it back so I can take it to worlds. Thanks.
Maybe you should have a mirror banner as well as a correct reading banner, since it seems most of the youtubes these days are uploaded mirrored to defeat youtube's penchant for taking down skating videos?
If anyone wants to make a mirrored banner I can give them a beautiful vinyl poster of T&S.This was what I ordered first in order to 'make' a banner and not being artistic at all. then DH suggested that I should have the work done for me taking pity on my banner making skills and he ordered another one with the words Tessa & Scott our living legends in red. So now I have to only arrange to have it hung up.Maybe you should have a mirror banner as well as a correct reading banner, since it seems most of the youtubes these days are uploaded mirrored to defeat youtube's penchant for taking down skating videos?
Perhaps if you check with the arena beforehand? I know other arenas in the states have guidelines, some helpful, some not so much?
BTW, there is a recent interview with Marina, mostly about Tessa & Scott at Cup of Russia
I've been going through the GS archives to see what interviews GS has done with our Fan Fest favs, and
In 2003, when they were juniors (and already crowd pleasers)
And 2009, as an Olympic season preview
The Virtue/Moir website has been updated, including the addition of their GP wins and some links to recent media coverage.
This anecdote about their determination was new to me:
“We were at a competition in 2007...and I decided that I wasn’t going to let anyone else tell me what my dream would be,” Moir describes. “I remember being on the plane ride home... I took out a piece of paper and I wrote what I thought I needed to do and what steps I needed to take in order to be Olympic Champion. And I put it in my wallet. It’s still there today and I’ve tried my best to follow those [steps].”
There was that special something about them even at that tender age. They are unsurpassed in talent.
My favorite Dance team! Finally saw their LP. WOW! Scary fast and difficult.
