He is magnificent.
You knew seeing him in the flesh would be a completely different experience altogether — but nothing prepared your eyes for the ray of soft light that smoothly glided over the ice, like a swirling snowflake becoming one with the snow. The blades on his boots are like feathers above the surface, leaving lines of art behind them as he twirls and dances like his body was made for the ice, like there is nowhere else he’d rather be, eyes closed and silky strands of dark hair shifting with his gracious movements.
In honor of me hitting 2,000 followers while I was away at Disneyland yesterday, I decided to put together a masterpost of all the reactions I’ve done since starting this blog up until today. Thank you guys so much for everything! I love you all!!!!
what i find really cool about the dance pics is that you can really tell who the characters are by their dancing? like, yurio dances with a lot of anger and without a lot of finesse - he does a lot of cool stuff, sure, his body can do all sorts of things - but he doesn’t have any beat or flow. he’s just making his body do impressive things to impress, he’s not giving a good overrall experience. that’s something he’s struggled with in his skating, where he did amazing technically but had no feeling behind the routine. chris, of course, uses a pole. he’s a very strong man, proud of his body, and very sexual. pole dancing really highlights his skating, and his interactions with the other skaters so far. he’s got nothing to hide. then viktor - viktor is clearly moving his body with a lot of finesse and style, but he looks like he’s still on the ice, not really dancing. he throws his legs out like one would during a routine, poses his hands in the same way, doesnt use his hips. its got class, sure, but its not super dance-y. at the same time, it’s not nearly as serious as his skating can be - he’s there to have fun. viktor wants to have a good time, and dancing with yuri, he is. and speaking of yuri: he, of course, dances like his body is the music itself. just like how viktor described his skating. on top of that, interestingly enough, he seems to go along with the styles everyone else is doing. he breakdances with yurio, pole dances with chris, dances like he’s doing couples skating with viktor. going along with the flow - that’s something that yuri has admitted to struggling with, particularly in regards to choosing his own music for his routines. even though he started the dance-off, he still went along with the styles that everyone else chose. it’s really cool to see all of that reflected in the pics
