Junior Grand Prix Final: Ice Dance Preview
Next week is the Grand Prix Final in Marseilles, France but it is also the Junior Grand Prix Final(!), with the junior short dance event on Thursday, December 8th and the junior free dance event on Friday, December 9th. As I come to the realization that I may be more invested in the junior dance event than the senior dance event this year, I decided to write up a short preview of the six finalists.
The top three teams last season (both at the JGPF and at Junior World Championships) chose to continue competing on the junior level for one more season before aging out next year, creating an interesting mix of experiences at this year’s JGPF. Half of the teams medaled at this event last season while the other half have just qualified for their first JGPF this year.
A preview of each team in order of qualification.
