Excerpt: Davis and White, both 25, produced an effortless program to Adolph Adam's Giselle, but only earned a level three for both sequences of the Yankee Polka pattern to earn 73.20 (35.15/38.05) points. At the end of last season, the skaters claimed that they liked the choice of a pattern dance for this year's Short Dance, and they still stand by their opinion.
"We got to compete this dance a couple of years ago," said White. "Obviously in a very different way, we all had the same music which kind of gets on your nerves after a while. But generally, I think it was a good dance for us, and we like to take advantage of the quick feet in skating."
