    Dance - Original Dance - Notes from Rosaleen

    Note: The following reports are copyright Golden Skate. Please, while you may provide links to reports, do not copy & paste them elsewhere. Thank you.

    Please don't post in this thread (it's easier for me), use the thread for the event marked 'comments'. Thanks

    My notes on dance aren't as good usually as the other disciplines. Dance takes even more words than pairs to describe. . . I'll do my best, but might not be able to give full descriptions of all the programs, but will try and at least give you the highlights.

    They've done the introductions and the teams will be on the ice for their warm-up in a minute or so.

    Notes Music: Quick /Fox / Quick Costumes: her in dark royal blue on top with light blue skirt him in black tails / only saw the last part of their dance - had to run and get a 'cheat sheet' and then I get back and they're handing them out to the reporters in the stands -- bad timing, I should have waited a minute. What I did see was nice and dancey, their diag steps were right with the music and seemed fairly complex with nice holds / pb 43.57 / 27.24 from CD /

    Notes Music: fox / quick Costumes: her in mauve shading to pink at hem him in tails / midline steps start the program and they were well matched for the 2nd half (which is all I saw - still getting organized a bit) / music is now too hot to hold and some dancing in place starts the quick step and then around the rink with a rot hold while maybe simple is in char of the dance and part of the dance / diag steps the same thing / pb 47.37 / 26.58 from cd /

    Notes Music: Charl / Fox / Charl from Chicago / Costumes: her in white him in dark vest & pants / music is razzle dazzle for midline and into spin which had a nice touch of them in opposing camels and going up and down with the music (teeter-totter effect). Generally I enjoyed the dance, still not quite organized and wasn't writing as they were skating so can't comment on the details, sorry -- hope that's the last team that I won't have proper comments for / pb - none / 22.91 from CD /

    Notes Music: charl / fox / quick all from "the Mask" / she's in red with illusion at waist him in tails / midline steps were decent and matched but very slow across the ice / the middle music was 16 tons / it was an ok dance, but it didn't grab me and I (honestly) wasn't paying a lot of attention / pb 33.11 / 24.25 from CD /

    Notes Music: fox / quick Costumes: her in hot pink with purple on bodice him in tails / I pick it up at the midline - watching properly now - looked quite difficult to me and in good unison / into rot & curve lift / spin has them starting in trad pairs sit then to him in sit her in cam / music is quickstep now and while they're with the beat, they aren't giving a true sense of what (IMO) a quickstep should be / into diag ftwrk and then rotational lift to end the program / pb 44.48 / 25.24 from CD /

    Notes Quick / fox / quick Costumes:; her in sparkly pink - Barb's old one I think him in tails / down the ice and into midline - good unison / stepping out with my baby now - how many times will I hear this today? / they seem a little sloppy to me as they dance down the side of the rink and around the far end / dance spin has a nice feel to it / diag ftwrk to quick step - moves ok but one of them is doing anything at a particular time - they seem to be taking turns doing the ftwrk / pb 38.02 / 23.83 from CD /

    Notes Music: charl / fox / charl Costumes: her in silver very short (esp by today's standards) string skirt him in dark vest & pants white shirt / music is all from Chicago / midline steps he touched down on the 1st set of twizzles / razzle dazzle again - I don't mind as it brings back some very fond memories of a show I was part of / spin is kind of neat and different / hot honey rag now - diag steps have a couple of nice touches and they are moving quite well / that was fun and they were in character of the dance the whole time / technically??? I don't know / pb 41.57 / 23.95 from CD /

    Notes Music: charl / fox /quick Costumes: fushia & black her with string skirt / midline looked to me (as I was sitting down) like a major mistep by her / diag steps both working - some good steps & flow but a little clutchy/grabby with the hold changes / last lift was her in splits with string skirt only partially keeping it from being indecent / pb 47.24 / 30.00 from CD /

    ISR Gudina / Beletski Start 12
    Notes Music: charl / fox / quick Costumes: neon orange & black- my eyes hurt / moving quite fast around the rink and miming a bit of comedy / rot lift was fast / spin is centered with good speed - kneeling pos was nice / into foxtrot and now midline - he had a slip and then they were way out of sync on twizzles think each of them had a slip inthem / quickstep - dancin' fool for diag steps that get really slow stowards the end / rot lift with her on his should leg around neck and he drops here into a lower how about waist height / that was a bit of a disaster / pb 47.84 / 28.40 from CD /
