    Federica Testa & Lukas Csolley

    Federica Testa (born 27 August 1993 in Milan, Italy) & LukᚠCsölley (born 18 June 1990 in Bratislava, Slovakia) compete for Slovakia in ice dance.

    Federica and Lukᚠteamed up for the 2011-12 season when their previous partnerships dissolved. They have steadily improved, and have qualified for a Grand Prix assignment at 2015 Cup of China. They won two legs of the 2014-15 Challengers series, Volvo Cup and Warsaw Cup, and won a bronze medal at the 2015 Winter Universiade.

    The team often presents a unique story and interesting choreography, and are definitely worth watching. I hope to see them on the Grand Prix!

    I love these two. Ziggy told me to keep an eye out for them and their Addams Family FD instantly and totally converted me to Total Fandom. So much more choreographically interesting than That Other Pairs' Long Program. I thought they had one of the best of the Pasos last season, but that circus free dance simply did not work. That's the risk you take when you take chances. Sometimes they don't work.

    I'm all for dance teams that think outside the box. These two may think outside the entire building. Bless 'em.



    Thank you so much Doris for all the links. It's Christmas in July!

    I think I have it finished now.

    BTW, the Slovak interview is interesting.

    I am glad you like them, W.A.!
