Thanks for starting a Fan Fest for them! Also I knew about Chelsea previously skating with Brian Johnson but didn't know that Danny previously skated with Jessica Calalang. Appreciate learning more about them!

Here is Chelsea and Danny's SP from Glacier Falls, which is showing so much promise and excitement.

I can't stop watching this, over and over. I can't get over how freed up Danny looks, and so happy; he's just smiling in nearly every moment of this program. Kudos X 3 to Adam Rippon for choreographing this. Chelsea looks happy too, in a way that's understated, comparatively, but perfectly complementary to Danny. Her face is just like a pixie or something; she has this barely contained, almost elusive humor and happiness.

As much as people have preached at US Pairs that they should stick with one partner, I am so happy that these two were able to come together. I don't think Danny would ever have simply split with Tarah. From Tarah's interview with Masha, it sounds like Danny was just at such a low point that he felt retirement was his only option. Thank goodness, through the efforts of who-knows-what or who-knows-who, including a fairy godmother or two and a liberal sprinkling of fairy dust, this partnership came about.

Well, since the Fan Fests are places where we can all come to gush over whomever we please, here I am! ❤️


(not forgetting that they elected not to perform their FS there.) I think Chelsea is showing stronger with the jumps in each outing, and she's really working to get the throw landings. That can be such a challenge, to match techniques and power balance with a new partner. It seems to me that the man's throw has to have such a delicate balance to it: forceful enough to get her high and far, and gentle enough that she can land it. Here's Lover.



ETA: I just noticed, Again. Looking at the thumbnail for Chelsea/Danny's SP, how beautiful their lines are. They have exactly the same knee bend, in spite of the difference in their sizes. And when they skate, they've got the same rhythm in them. So lovely, it makes the simplest moves spellbinding.

So happy someone created the fanfest for them!! I rarely like to watch pair skating as I feel nervous for the pair when they do those crazy moves...but I stumble upon their SP clip on OIP and I love it. That clip feels so much joy and their moves are so in sync...it just feel like their music!

yes, she still struggle some jumps and throw landing but I just feel happy watching them skate that I haven’t felt for pair skating in a long time. Can’twait for cranberry Open

I was lucky enough to meet Danny’s dad in the stands and literally randomly started talking about Danny for some unknown reason. Well he started the conversation asking about Gracie’s stuffie but for some reason I started talking about Danny. I had no idea he was Danny’s dad. He said he was from Colorado, hey I don’t think that’s so strange, I drove here from St Louis. It was a 3 day drive, he says, and he went through St Louis. So then I’m like oh I’m so glad Danny has a great new partner and he looks so happy. Told him I asked Danny if his head got cold and he said he wore a hat. He points Danny out across the arena walking on his hands and asks if I have his autograph. Oh yes I say, I got it at the FOFS breakfast. So then I get up to leave and Seven Sisters comes along. I introduced her. Apparently she has more sense than I do and asked if he was related to a skater at which point he confessed to being Danny’s dad. She said she didn’t think he wanted to say.
I’m just glad I randomly started talking about Danny.

Wow that’s cool! Did he said anything about new partnership?

FSO got a quote of him saying he has so much fun that he didn’t feel like work at all. So I’m glad we aren’t the only one seeing his happiness glow in this new partnership.

Chelsea and Danny did okay in cranberry but I have to keep reminding myself that they are still new :) some of the timing seems off on Chelsea in SP but I still love for their lifts and step sequence.

since I’m n00b here in GS, does score in Cranberry count as PB/SB scores?

thanks!

I did not know he was Danny’s father til he was gone. Pretty sure they count as SB/PB. I know skaters can make Worlds, CC tech minimums and some did.
