    There is also no Tessa Virtue, another skater who was a ballet dancer.

    Or Kim Navarro of Navarro & Bommentre, who majored in dance at college.

    For anyone who has hesitated to click on the link:

    The lengthy article offers extensive quotes from Maddie Aaron, Alex Paul, Caits Yankowskas, and Gretchen Donlan . And from choreographer Shae Zukiwsky, and DSC ballet instructor Veronique Breen.

    The name of the blog is Two for the Ice.
    And the subtitle of the blog is The Glorious World of North American pairs & ice dance.

    (As an American who used to skate for Team USA, Yankowskas apparently does fit the bill .)

    Only the skaters who were interviewed (and their partners) were discussed in the article, it seems. Understandable, IMO .

    (The exceptions are that Séguin/Bilodeau and Poulin/Servant are mentioned [just barely] as examples of those for whom Zukiwsky has choreographed.)
