    Fred Astaire and Adele Astaire are considered one of THE great ballroom couples of all time. Oh and yes, they were brother and sister.

    I mean, they never looked beyond of the love theme, like they did not feel capable to do a good program with the same quality like is usual for them in another kind of theme. So when the presenter ask to Tessa it was like she feels weird because for her there are not another kind of programs, in her mind other kind of programs, I mean, no romantic programs, dont work, but it is only her prception because definitly there are another posibilities in ice dancing.

    Do they do intimate moves, as to modern dancers?

    i don't know why people keep saying this. carmen wasn't a soppy romantic program, neither was their latin fd, or pink floyd (and i'd argue funny face isn't really a romantic program either but w/e). so they do a lot of romantic programs...so what? it's their strength, just like skating to dramatic warhorses is d/w's strength. d/w never get criticism for NOT skating to something romantic.

    and honestly, if you gave mahler to d/w with the exact same choreography, i bet it wouldn't come off even the slightest bit romantic and would instead be some grand sweeping, exciting skate. conversely, if you gave schez to v/m with the exact same choreography, it would come off very romantically charged and sexual. a lot of it comes down to the personal dynamic between the two skaters...which was my original point, that this dynamic wouldn't exist in the first place if v/m were brother and sister

    and maybe she just doesn't want her brother with his hands all up in her business during lifts. i mean, i don't even like hugging my brother at christmas

    . Ok, but anyway, what do you mean with "hands all up her business"? , in ice dancing the men never are touching their business, they basically are touching legs and waist, so I dont understand the fuss and the other poster comment about the gynecologist
