I’d be interesting in having someone speak about the choreographic nuances for those of us who’d like to learn more. In a recent interview they commented that they’ve been moving closer and closer to performances that better reflect who they are.I hope the FD is worked on more. I think the camera work helped here to get a better view of some of the choreographic nuances, but it just hasn't clicked for me yet.
I hope somebody else does. I have got a lot on my plate currentlyI’d be interesting in having someone speak about the choreographic nuances for those of us who’d like to learn more.

So what I got out of that is that someone is very scared.https://matchtv.ru/figure-skating/m...izeron_ochen_khoroshi_oni_vystupili_prekrasno
Just read that (in translation) and it turned my stomach!
I guess it is the bigotry or maybe also hypocrisy that gets to me! The sheer assumption that only heterosexuals are able to portray love ...For what it’s worth, a friend (former professional dancer in a respected dance company) asked me, back in 2018 after watching P/C’s performance for the first time : “Are they a couple (in real life too)?”
You are totally right and Gabi and Guillaume have been trying to push ice dance to go beyond the constraints of the traditional norm: man in woman in love and frozen in their traditional roles.Why does romance matter anyway lol. It's such a basic thing to attempt as a duet
What struck me most about these remarks was not the sexist and homophobic ranting of an old Russian man (nothing new there) but rather his admission that they are really good skaters who have reemerged in good form. Add to that the imagination and creativity you mention and they do pose a serious threat.You are totally right and Gabi and Guillaume have been trying to push ice dance to go beyond the constraints of the traditional norm: man in woman in love and frozen in their traditional roles.
Why do people on this forum feel their FD is a reimagination of a tango? I only noticed a couple of the holds looked somewhat alike?
Really? That wasn't my read on it at all. I don't think a few head/leg flicks and holds make a tango. Also, the posters seem to think the entire thing is a reimagination of a tango, which I don't see at all, and you don't describe it that way either (just the first part).The first part, up to the twizzles, is a tango. The couple plunge into the music and try to emphasize the intensity and the gravity of the cello melody. The ponctuation with typical tango moves such as sharp head or leg moves, are there to spice up ( like chili does it to a meal) and to impulse a beat into the long lament of the cello. To give it life. Let’s say, it could be when you first meet someone, you try to know them, you test them, you challenge them to decide if yes or no, you will dance more than just a tango.
At this moment of the season, Guillaume is clearly the star of the program and Gabriella still needs to make her mark on it.
