Ice Dance Requirements for Technical Rules for 2013-2014-2015
The interesting part is about season 2014-2015: in the SD, the pattern dance will be the Paso Doble, and there will be a "partial step sequence"... What do you think it will be? Like an OSP?
At the dance meeting at the 4CC's last season, Gordon-Poltorak said the IDTC was considering eliminating a specific Pattern Dance for a series of step sequences. This Communique seems to reflect that - specifying that the step sequences be in the timing of the Paso Doble Pattern Dance while other Latin rhythms can be used.
I LOVED the OSP when it was part of dance competitions and would be ecstatic if they brought it back in lieu of the current Franken....um...Short Dance.
