I have enjoyed many of the changes that have taken place in ice dance but I am wondering if the ice dancers are taking too many risks with all the tricks they are trying to out do one another with. In particular some of the lifts seem pretty awkward and risky. At times they almost transcend in to the pairs discipline. I know Tessa Virture had a cramp in her leg during their free skate at 4 continents. It makes me wonder if the program is too risky and tricky in some parts, especially since Tessa has come back from a previous injury and long recovery. It's a shame that happened, they have really done well with this program. I wish them well and hope they will be okay for Worlds in March.
