Penny Coomes & Nicholas Buckland: “We want to provide performances that people look forward to watch”

Penny Coomes and Nicholas Buckland

I can watch again and again skating performances by British ice dance couple Penny Coomes and Nicholas Buckland. I think that many stick to my opinion. This team has one of the most important things – a real genuine passion for ice dancing. Being in their ice dances, Penny and Nick are not afraid to risk revealing their amazing creativity.

Probably an unconventional approach in all of their programs brings skating fans’ sympathy for these promising athletes. They are not afraid to be original and it is absolutely correct.

Obviously their coach, the two-time Olympic Champion Evgeny Platov, is very inspirational with what he has achieved but also his incredible skating ability is something they both are keen to learn. His knowledge and advice is something extremely valuable.

Also it would be desirable to note a very good choice of their musical selections, with the change of rhythm and tempo, which is completely corresponding to the modern ice dancing.
