The Rhythm Dance will be: “Beds are Burning” by Midnight Oil, “Don’t Leave Me Now” by Supertramp and “Runaway” by Bon Jovi.We haven’t finally decided on the Free Dance music yet but it will be “Wild West”

I really liked their tango. They didn't just skate to tango music, but incorporated tango moves without excessive "stopping and posing". My compliments to the choreographer and the skaters.
