    When they required that the music had to have a definite beat, that ruled out a lot of classical music b/c most classical music is melodious and not based on a repitive beat.

    They can get around that though. A&Ps Romeo and Juliet (Prokofiev 98) didn't technically qualify as having a beat. So they added a "heartbeat" sound to the music, and it qualified.

    My absolute favorites are Bourne and Kraatz, although I do admit to not having been impressed with their Freedances from 1996/97 and 2001/02. They didn't have enough spark in them.
    I never liked all the hype and drama about Usova and Zhulin and Grishuk and Platov. They may have been great dancers, but all the controversy took away from it all.
    And also (some of you may want to take a deep breath before reading this ), the more I thought about it, I realized I have never seen T&D. Ever. Any prefromance. I've heard so much about Bolero and how its one of the greatest routines of all time but I've never seen anything clip of it. On a scale of 1 -10, is it really worth downloading?

    absolutely, down load it. Better yet, get their paso doble osp, same year, or their blues osp to summertime.

    You can get bolero on the winter olympics website.

    I'll look and see whether I can find it.

    You must see it. It is breathtaking. I have never ever seen a skate that thrilled me so much.

    Torvill and Dean the Greatest Ice Dancers

    I don't think there is anyone who can compare or come close to T&D. The rest pail in comparison to the greatest ice dancers of all time.

    Watching T&D's performances at the 84 Olympics is the reason I started to watch ice dancing. Although I've enjoyed others since, I don't think they would have made me a convert.
