Torino 2010 – Compulsory dance

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir

Today I was listening a lot of golden waltzes, maybe too much for me-). But it was the historical event. Why? Just because maybe it was the last compulsory dance event in the modern history of figure skating. But,will see…

The World Figure Skating Championships has been started today. Ice dancers skated their golden waltz and I have to say I seen many very good performances. And of course, skaters who competed at the Olympics feel yourself more relaxed in Torino. They needn’t to spent so much nerves. But I think anyway we will see the real sporting fight there.

Federica Faiella and Massimo Scali demonstrated his own great skating style. Their dance was very pretty in artistry and with very strong technique. These ice dancers have a very good mood and conditions for taking a place at the podium. They are 3rd after the Compulsory dance. Meryl Davis and Charlie White skated very emotionally, with a high speed and rhythm. And practically without mistakes. They are currently 2nd. Tessa Virtue/Scott Moir.No questions. No doubts. No dispute. Absolutely perfect skating. It was the example for skating books – how to dance waltz on the ice. Highest level of synchronization, presentation and expression. And of course they are 1st.

You know some people say that waltz is the European dance. Maybe. But not for Davis/White and Virtue/Moir. They are North Americans but they performances were without a rival.
