Ice Dancing is Missing Something Right Now

I was kind of disappointed by the ice dancing at World Championships. I felt as though none of the top pairs really had any of the magical performances that I look for in ice dancing. More than ever I’m missing V/M and D/W because I think  their rivalry really pushed ice dancing to new limits. This performance by Meryl and Charlie is a perfect example of that. I have to admit I didn’t love them all the time, but their program to Notre Dame de Paris was perfection! Beautiful skating and interpretation, difficult and innovative lifts, fast twizzles, and a brilliant finale. Ice dancing doesn’t get much better than this. :)

Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir || The gala is a chance for us skaters to thank the fans. It’s a way to express our gratitude for the wonderful support received throughout the competition. It’s also an opportunity to let loose, have some fun and skate for the sake of pure entertainment.
… We also find that we could draw off an old program; maybe mix in a new trick with a former footwork– just mix it up.
