The NEW highest score you can attain in Ice Dance is.....
Wait for it.......
Depending if the ISU make changes to the factoring of the PCS this is it
SD: Highest Score 82.20pts
FD: Highest Score 120.90pts
Interesting- they are offering a choreographic lift or spinning movement. You can only do one but the spinning movement has a BV 0.3points higher than the lift.
Here are the new Ice Dance SOV
Here are the new Technical Rules for Ice Dance
I still thin that the SD should be 80pts max and the FD 120pts max for a maximum total of 200pts.
Yulia and Ruslena team forever!
Not a big deal, 3 point more or less. It's the same thing, just needed for placement and that's it.

Thank goodness it's easy to know in Ice Dance- you can say that the ceiling is around 200points.
When you compare that to men's- we saw Patrick Chan at nations break 100pts in the SP and 200pts in the FS but there are harder listed jumps out there that he and no one else really does (except a handful of other skaters) that are worth more points.
It's a small yet nagging issue that gets to me. Maybe I need to do some maths during my uni break.
