    Hope they are working on the new programs that will bring them success and medals they well deserve.
    Me too.

    EDIT: What are the chances that the CD at the next olympics is a tango of some sort? I've been watching V/M' Tango Romantica and thinking how fabulous that would look on I/Z. I'm salivating already . Or could it be the polka?! I think I'm officially in the RusLena withdrawal phase, LOL.

    I am almost certain that the pattern for 2018 will be a tango of some sort, I'm guessing the Argentine tango but I don't know for sure, obviously.

    Yes, it very much could be as there has not been any kind of tango compulsory since the introduction of the short dance (since the 2010 Olympics, that is).

    The teams could mix the Golden Waltz in 2010/2011 with the Tango aka the Wango

    It could also be that the SD will be again a Samba or Rumba, since that hasn`t been done since the 2011/2012 season.

    Yes, I know that. I meant that the compulsory sequences themselves have not been tango. In the 2010/2011 season tango was not "compulsory"/obligatory, it was just one of the allowed choices for the second rhythm.

    I see no activity here. It is pretty much ups and downs season for every team in the Ice dancing. Hope see our beloved Ruslena stronger than ever next season.

    It seems like the current trend in the ice dancing is songs like PC and WP and Shibs free dances. But looking at the Ruslena videos I think that they can be best at what the others are now avoiding, not in slow music and floating dances but dances with much more ardor and more dancy music. Actually what I want from them is to choose music which highlights the best moments of the program.

    Sigh. Watching this makes me sad that they didn`t show us a more classical waltz.

    Btw, I`m still holding out hope for a coaching change announcement.

    I think everyone is waiting for news from them. It will come. Regardless of what it is, I believe in these 2

    I believe in them too. I'd actually like to see something passionate from them- a tango or even another paso, or in the alternative just some passionate, big music in general... not the romantic pasty stuff everyone else is doing, I agree about that. I do believe they are a team that can do a lot of different styles and themes though, so whatever they decide I'm sure I'll appreciate it

    That's what I love best about Ruslena- they don't just do the typical flowy-romantic stuff. Not that it's necessarily bad (I'm head over heels for H/D's SD this season), but I love the fire and storytelling these two bring. Alas, that seems to be one of the things that hurt them with Frida this year, which is a shame, but I'm hoping they can find a balance between their unique aesthetic and what judges will reward. Go Ruslena!

    I'd like to see them try something whimsical - along the lines of some of P/B's programs or Akiko's O. Maybe using non-Amelie music by Yann Tiersen or something from Cirque du Soleil. It would stand out from what everyone else is doing and also show range for than away from the fire and drama of Carmen and Frida.

    Elena and Ruslan move to Igor Shpilband to train in US for three months and then decide on their future career. Source: http://www.sport-express.ru/figure-skating/news/969646/

    Before anyone freaks out I think the article is worded weird at the end. I think they will decide to permanently stay there in 3 months.
