it’s really nice and beautiful dance, light, tender, no drama and no one dies at the end. I like such concept for young pairs. But I can’t get rid of feeling that we’ve already seen it all so many times before…..Everything is lovely and well choreographed and music cuts are very good, but something we’ve seen in Virtue and Moir’s dances (hello Mahler No.5), something in Weaver and Poje’s dances (hello Four Seasons). I can’t say that Angelika Krylova did a bad job, but it seems that she doesn’t know what to do with this duo. They stuck in one style and I don’t see any progress. Plus old lifts…..They deserve more interesting programs and I’m sure they’re capable of much more! Hope their short dance will be more creative, because it won’t be an easy season for them, they definatly need a breakthrough.
