    ^ Every performance of Les Miz should end with that rousing march!

    Dick Button: "That layback position is not unacceptable! I've seen much worse!"

    I agree with you re: that march. I wish he would have said... that march is first rate, first rate... I love Dick Button going on about layback spins. Can there be a compilation of Dick Button just commenting on layback spins for 1/2 an hour? I'd watch that.

    This thread reminds me of how tiresome it is when music is overused.

    Especially music that "tells a story."

    "East of Eden" is a beautiful piece of music, and Michelle Kwan's skate to it was incredible.

    The magic wasn't lessened because she didn't tell the story of a man committing adultery with his brother's wife.

    Actually, the current rules, even in dance, don't favor story telling.
    o
    Paraphrasing the dance rules, "If you've got to have a story, at least use one simple enough or well known enough that the audience can understand it without Cliff Notes." "
