Lifts are essential elements in any Ice Dance program. They are used to enhance the character, music and choreography of the dance.

This is my part video from a meeting with Tessa and Scott.

I want to thank them for taking the time to meet. And even when they first said that they do not have time, they could still go down and talk to us for 15 minutes.

About them I want to say that they are very beautiful, such as in all photos and videos. Tessa’s eyes are amazing. They are very nice, sincerely happy with gifts and thanked, ready to answer questions, give autographs and be photographed. It is unfortunate that we had so little time.

A nice moment, which I really liked. Tesse was presented with hand-made earrings with maple leaves. As soon as she got them and examined them, she immediately showed them to Scott.

P.S. I’m not very good with English, sorry for the translation through Google. And I am ready to answer any questions.
