    Nathalie Péchalat & Fabian Bourzat

    I've always loved this team, and this may well be their last season.

    There was a great Q&A on ice-dance.com recently about their creative process:

    I am anxious to see how their shift to Shpilband continues to work for them

    I'm hoping for Olympic bronze!

    What I like about them is their difference from other Dance Teams - they are trying more crazier music and so on and I love it. Definetly a Olympic hope

    Their birthdays are almost the same. Late December. She will turn 30 and he will be 33 at the Olympics. They will be the oldest ice dancers, but will they be the oldest skaters in the entire event? How old is Plushy?

    I thought their Les Miz program from the 2006 Olympics was really well done.

    I did too! Unfortunately, at that point in their career, they were very prone to mistakes.

    There is a wonderful interview on icenetwork with Nathalie & Fabian, prior to their season's first competition at Cup of China. It has extensive details about how they developed their Little Price FD. I found it completely fascinating!

    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2013/10/28/63445468

    Good luck to them both this weekend!

    Thank you for starting this thread. Though I have recently discovered them; they are my FAVORITE Ice Dance team. They truly dance. I think they would make great coaches. I'm off to watch their vids again.

    I've loved this team since we saw them compete live @ Skate America in Reading, PA - 2007!

    Sad to say that Natalie and Fabian have withdrawn from Europeans to prepare for Sochi.

    Not that I expected any different, but I was still a little bummed that they weren't able to snag bronze. Their free dance was so lovely, costumes included. Is the story of the little prince just not well-known outside of France? I'm surprised people aren't buying into it more.
