    Agreed, but doesn't it sound like the absolute right vehicle for them?

    I thought Giselle was more entertaining and compelling than their FD this past year. I've watched the WC Giselle over and over and over. Much more than any other ice dance, including any from them or V/M. More than even old videos of T/D. Giselle was perfection, the most amazing thing I've ever seen on ice.

    I wonder if that will be repeated? Meaning that they'll be defined (for me) this season by the SD?

    I've been a big fan of their OD's/SD's. Giselle was my favorite dance program this year, Bollywood of the Olympic year, and they had my favorite tango SD, particular the way the not touching sequence worked. I'm hoping My Fair Lady will work well for them, particularly I'm Getting Married In the Morning.

    Oh, that's exquisite. How nice that the station gave them so much time; it seems to be at least two minutes, and the camera work showed them off to great advantage, not losing them across the ice, and doing a judicious close-up or two at the right moments.

    Looking forward to seeing what Luna with his partner have come up with in regard to new lifts for D/W, which is probably the most challenging aspect in the FD. SLC is next week.

    Have a great time at SLC! That's going to be the comp with the best slate of entries until 4CC's.

    Here's a really good clip of their 2 performances at the Progressive/Skating/Gymnastics Spectacular.

    Thanks. I am sure I will. I had a hard time deciding between SA and SLC, (it would have been my 20th SA), but the addition of the top French dance team and Canadian team at SLC, plus the Shibs, made the decision for me. Plus my granddaughter is getting married one week after SA, which would have made that trip more complicated timing wise since I have out of town family arriving to stay in my guest house immediately after SA. Anyway, I am so excited to see all the new programs, including the other disciplines. Hopefully, I will be able to send tidbits of info during the competition.

    I have 4 granddaughters. This one is the eldest (25). Not only beautiful but smart, got her MBA at age 23. Re: media access. Seems like no media room in SLC, so I will probably be having to work a lot of mornings in the hotel.

    D/W fans are going to love their FD. Charlie in particular gives the most passionate performance I have ever seen him do. I could barely take my eyes off of him in practice. Meryl is elegant as always and I can't wait to see her costume for the FD. Two-time Oly Gold medalist Evgeny Platov said he thought this FD was perfect for Sochi as Rimsky-Korsakov's music is a favorite of Russian culture.

    I've watched D&W's SD on Ice Network four times now. The more I watch it, the more I like it. I agree that something needs to be done with the last music cut and the rotational lift, but in the end I think that this has the potential to be an outstanding dance for them. I remember not liking Notre Dame at Skate America last year and then being blown away by the improvement at NHK. I have a feeling that I will have the same reaction when this dance gets to Skate America in a month.

    I'm sorry that so many of you haven't been able to see the dance yet. Hopefully, it will appear somewhere in the near future.
