2017 World Championships Dance Preview

In ice dance, all the teams are attempting the same elements, and what the scores come down to are levels, grades of execution and program components.  Teams are seeking to gain Level 4 for all of their elements, including the high value step sequences.  They are looking for all positive GOEs in the 2s and 3s.  And they are trying to achieve the highest program components possible.  No team has earned all Level 4s in either of their programs this season.  With a difference of 1.5 points between a Level 3 and a Level 4 step sequence and two in the short dance and two in the free dance, levels can make a huge difference in who ends up on the podium.

Virtue and Moir came back to competition this season in preparation for competing in next year’s Olympics.  They won two gold medals on the Grand Prix and won gold at the Grand Prix Final.  They are the reigning Four Continents Champions.  They were beat in the free dance at Skate Canada, but since then, they have been on a roll.  The coaching change they have made seems to agree with their style of movement as they have always been a more understated, lyrical team.  They have the top three technical scores in the short dance, program component scores in the short dance, and technical scores in the free dance.  They also have the top two program components scores in the free dance.  Their personal best came at the Grand Prix Final this season where they scored 197.22.  They earned nine 10.00 marks in their free dance at Four Continents.  They have the best short dance, best free dance, and best total scores.

Papadakis and Cizeron seemed untouchable until Virtue and Moir announced their return.  These two teams now train alongside one another.  They are the two time reigning World Champions and three time reigning European Champions.  They won gold at Trophee de France and lost to Virtue and Moir at both NHK Trophy and the Grand Prix Final.  They’ve been missing levels and that has cost them ground in their programs and they’ve been having to come back from behind.  Their personal best is 194.46, set at last year’s World Championships.  They earned five 10.00 marks in their free dance at Europeans.  They have the 2nd best short dance, 3rd best free dance, and 2nd best total scores.

The Shibutanis had their breakout season last year, landing on the World podium for the first time since 2011.  They are the reigning World Silver Medalists and reigning Four Continents Silver Medalists.  They won two gold medals on the Grand Prix and took home gold from the Final.  They have long been known as technical skaters, but were scoring in the 2s on some of their elements early in the season.  They have resolved many of these issues, but still haven’t hit all 4s.  Their free dance is a very subtle, artistic piece and contrasts their hip hop short program.  Their program components have come up significantly this season, as evidenced by their four 10.00 marks in the free dance at Four Continents.  Their personal best came at Four Continents, where they scored 191.85.  They have the 3rd best short dance, 2nd best free dance, and 3rd best total scores.

Cappellini and Lanotte failed to make the Grand Prix Final this year, after placing 4th at Skate Canada.  They turned their season around, winning the silver medal at Europeans.  Their personal best came at that event, where they scored 186.64.  They are capable of hitting top levels on all of their elements, but they haven’t been able to put together all of those elements in the same event.  They are also slightly behind on program components, and did not receive any 10.00s at Europeans.  They have the 7th best short dance, 6th best free dance, and 6th best total scores.

Bobrova and Soloviev are the reigning European Bronze Medalists.  They won a bronze at Skate America and gold at Rostlecom Cup to qualify for the Final where they placed 4th.  Their personal best was at Rostelecom Cup, where they scored 186.68.  At Europeans, they had a costly Level 2 on one of their step sequences and did not receive any 10.00 marks.  They have the 5th best short dance, 5th best free dance, and 5th best total scores.

Chock and Bates are the only team to beat Virtue and Moir this season, finishing ahead of them in the free dance at Skate Canada.  But their season has been uneven.  Their performance at Skate Canada was a personal best, scoring 188.24.  At the Grand Prix Final, they finished 6th and were beaten by Hubbell and Donohue for the first time.  They took home the bronze medal from Four Continents, but were over 6 points behind the Shibutanis.  Their scores at Skate Canada were so high because they received Level 4s on some of their step sequences, the first team to do so this season.  But they haven’t been able to replicate that since.  They did receive four 10.00 marks for their free dance at Four Continents.  They have the 4th best short dance, 4th best free dance, and 4th best total scores.

Weaver and Poje have found themselves slipping in the last few seasons.  They nearly won a World Championship in 2014 and medaled again in 2015.  But they finished 5th last season.  They won a silver and bronze on the Grand Prix, and failed to qualify for the Final this year.  They finished 5th at Four Continents, their worst performance ever at that event (tied with 2008 and 2009). At Four Continents they had some program component marks in the 8s, which will not be good enough to get onto the podium at Worlds.  Their levels are what’s giving them the biggest trouble this season.  They have not yet scored a 4 on either step sequence in their short dance or their twizzles.  They are the only top team not to receive a Level 4 on their twizzles this season, which costs them about 1 point per event.  Their personal best was set at the World Team Trophy in 2015 when they scored 182.93.  They have the 9th best short dance, 9th best free dance, and 9th best total scores.

Gilles and Poirier won two bronze medals on the Grand Prix this season.  They finished 6th at Four Continents last month and 8th at Worlds last season.  Their personal best came from Skate Canada this year, when they scored 182.57.  They have the 7th best free dance and 8th best total scores.

Hubbell and Donohue finished 4th at Four Continents, but they were 5 points from the podium.  They did set a personal best at that event, scoring 180.82.  They won a pair of silver medals on the Grand Prix to qualify for the Final where they finished 5th.  They placed 6th at Worlds last season.  They have the 8th best short dance and 10th best total scores.

Other teams looking to crack the top ten include Stepanova and Bukin and Guignard and Fabbri.

Virtue and Moir, the Shibutanis, Chock and Bates, Papadakis and Cizeron, and Cappellini and Lanotte have all scored above 40 points in the short program for their technical score.  Virtue and Moir hold the top mark of 42.16 with the Shibutanis the next closest at 40.85.

Virtue and Moir, Papadakis and Cizeron, the Shibutanis, and Bobrova and Soloviev have scored above 37 points in program components in the short dance.  The top mark was set by Virtue and Moir at 38.37 with Papadakis and Cizeron having the second highest score of 37.83.

For the free dance, Virtue and Moir, the Shibutanis, Papadakis and Cizeron, Chock and Bates, and Gilles and Poirier have scored above 56 points on the technical side.  Virtue and Moir again have the highest mark of 59.25 with the Shibutanis setting the second highest mark of 58.43.

In program components, Virtue and Moir, Papadakis and Cizeron, the Shibutanis, Bobrova and Soloviev, and Cappellini and Lanotte have all scored above 56 points in program components.  Virtue and Moir have the highest score of 58.14 with Papadakis and Cizeron setting the next highest mark of 57.61.

Virtue and Moir have a significant lead in all aspects of competition and that is without hitting the top levels on their step sequences.  Papadakis and Cizeron have the second highest artistic marks while the Shibutanis have the second highest technical marks.  What this podium is going to come down to is who can hit the Level 4s and how close will the gap on the artistic side be between the French and the Americans.

 

 

My podium predictions:

Gold: Virtue/Moir

Silver: Papadakis/Cizeron

Bronze: Shibutani/Shibutani

2016 Rostelecom Cup Dance Preview

Chock and Bates seem to have rebounded from a bit of a disappointing season last year.  They won silver last week at Skate Canada behind Virtue and Moir and were less than a point off the gold.  They set new personal best free dance and total scores at that event.  The biggest challenge they are going to have here is competing in back to back events and not having time to make adjustments to their programs based on the feedback they received.  They have the 2nd best short dance, 2nd best free dance and 2nd best total scores.

Bobrova and Soloviev won the bronze medal at Skate America.  They performed better at that event than I have seen them in years and have fixed many of the issues they had with their skating in the past, most noticeable posture and lines.  Their short dance is a bit disjointed with their music choices but they do a good job executing what they have.  They have the 6th best short dance, 6th best free dance and 6th best total scores.

Zahorski and Guerreiro are competing at their first Grand Prix event but have already competed at two Challenger Series events this season.  They won bronze at Ondrej Nepela and bronze at Finlandia Trophy.  They have the 9th best short dance and 9th best total scores.

Guignard and Fabbri placed 4th at Skate America behind Bobrova and Soloviev, however they were 9 points off the podium.  They have a very cute short dance program that is Grease themed and plays to their strengths really well.  They have the 9th best free dance and 10th best total scores.

Weaver and Poje are competing for the first time this season after struggling at the end of the season last year.  They were undefeated through the first half of the season, including winning gold at the Grand Prix Final.  They dropped to bronze at Four Continents after winning it the year before and 5th at Worlds after being on the podium each of the two previous seasons.  There wasn’t any glaring errors with their performances this season, but they just didn’t have programs that were really memorable and other teams were able to pass them up.  They also had some problems with levels but the level issues varied from event to event.

The best short dance score of the season is 77.72 with the top 10 scoring above 66 points.  The best free dance score is 112.71 with the top 10 scoring above 98.  The best total score is 189.20 with the top 10 scoring above 165.

 

My podium predictions:

Gold: Chock/Bates

Silver: Weaver/Poje

Bronze: Bobrova/Soloviev

2016 Skate America Short Dance

Group 1

Shibutani/Shibutani, USA: 36.21 TES + 36.83 PCS = 73.04

  • The Midnight Blues section of their program was very smooth and crisp
  • This is a really interesting mix and they’ve made the hip hop work with a very classic song
  • Their twizzles were right on but seemed a bit slower than normal
  • I really like their hip hop accents in their non touching step sequence and their unison is spot on
  • Rotational lift with two changes of position
  • Very clean program and very solid throughout
  • I really love that she’s wearing pants and this is quite a different look for ice dance

Min/Gamelin, KOR: 29.39 TES + 26.86 PCS = 56.25 and into 2nd place

  • Their hold in the Midnight Blues looks a little tense and they seem just  tad bit far apart; I’d like to see them have a bit more control and relax into the steps and holds
  • A little hesitation and bounce going into their lift and not sure I love her bicycling legs while upside down
  • Interesting costume change for them with the music change into the hip hop
  • They don’t seem quite sure of their footing on some of the twizzles
  • I’d like to see their music fit together a bit more cohesively as the cut seems a little jarring and the two pieces don’t necessarily fit together

Muramoto/Reed, JPN: 27.60 TES + 28.59 PCS = 56.19 and into 3rd place

  • Their midnight blues is very smooth with good ease in their holds but I would like to see their legs matching a little better
  • I love the personality coming thorough in their non touching step sequence and they have great unison throughout
  • Very off on the timing and spacing on the twizzles
  • Really nice rotational split lift with him holding her back foot
  • Really nice performance for them

Agafonova/Ucar, TUR: 30.64 TES + 28.34 PCS = 58.98 and into 2nd place

  • Their midnight blues seems really slow and their hold position has a lot of tension
  • A little difficulty in some of the changes of holds with some hesitation in the turns
  • Pretty good unison though all three sets of twizzles
  • I’d like to see her stand up a bit straighter in the non touching step sequence and they could both work on varying their expressions and making it a bit more authentic
  • Rotational lift with a change of position
  • A little bit of hesitation getting the hands through the holds into the ending pose

Ilinykh/Zhiganshin, RUS: 33.52 TES + 33.08 PCS = 66.60 and into 2nd place

  • Starting with their lift and a great position with her standing up in front of him over the ice
  • The midnight blues seemed a little slow in contrast to their partial step sequence
  • She’s really performing to the audience but I’d love to see them have a little bit more connection with each other
  • A little off in the twizzles
  • Some unison issues on their non touching step sequences with the arms not matching exactly and some slight timing being off
  • Cartwheel flip into their ending pose was slightly awkwardly landed
  • A lot of energy throughout and I’d like to really see them harness that as the season goes on to bring up the rest of the performance

 

Group 2

Guignard/Fabbri, ITA: 32.25 TES + 32.54 PCS = 64.79 and into 3rd place

  • Very nice twizzles
  • I like this interpretation of Grease using Frenchie’s song instead of doing Danny and Sandy
  • Nice long lines in their Midnight Blues
  • I’d like her facial expressions to match the tone of the song a little more as this is not really a big smile type of song
  • I like their timing with the music on the non touching step sequence
  • Overall I think this program still needs a little bit of work on the performance aspect to really match the song but I really like the overall look and think it has a lot of potential

Bobrova/Soloviev, RUS: 33.32 TES + 35.60 PCS = 68.92 and into 2nd place

  • Really nice twizzles from them with some interesting variations
  • Twist around to sit on his shoulder and cartwheel out of it
  • Great lines and use of their arms in the midnight blues and really nice edges
  • This is the best I’ve seen them look in a while
  • The swing section of their music doesn’t really seem to mesh seamlessly with the blues portion to create a cohesive story but overall I think this was a really effective program

Tobias/Tkachenko, ISR: 32.67 TES + 30.66 PCS = 63.33 and into 5th place

  • Twizzles seem a little bouncy and on top of the edges but the unison was nice
  • Especially since she’s wearing pants I’d love to see a little more stretch through her free leg in the step sequence
  • Their movement seems to fall more into the jazz choreography category than hip hop but it goes well with the music
  • Dive into a rotational lift with her hanging by her knees

Hubbell/Donohue, USA: 35.52 TES + 33.26 PCS = 68.78 and into 3rd place

  • The Midnight Blues looks very secure with ease in the changes of hold and nice matching leg lines
  • Nice twizzles
  • I’m not sure how all this music is supposed to fit together but it is edited really well
  • I almost feel like they’re letting the music carry the hip hop feel though instead of through their choreography
  • I enjoyed the first half of this program so much more than the second

Pogrebinsky/Benoit, USA: 29.66 TES + 28.52 PCS = 58.18 and into 8th place

  • Nice curve lift with her standing on his legs and a toss into a catch
  • They could stretch through their free legs a bit more in places in the midnight blues
  • I love the ease in which they skate the pattern dance with nice deep edges and no tension in their holds
  • He had a pretty big bobble on the second set of twizzles but didn’t put his foot down
  • He had another bobble in the non touching steps but hangs on to it
  • The ending is a little distracting trying to hit all the accents and getting in to too many poses
  • Overall this was a really solid performance from a first time senior team

2016 Skate America Dance Preview

Three of last year’s top 10 Worlds finishers are competing at this event along with three of the Grand Prix Final qualifiers.  As a group they have three Worlds medals, four European medals (including one gold), four Four Continents medals (including two gold), and two Junior Worlds medals (including one gold).

The top short dance score of the season is 77.72 with the top ten all scoring above 63 points.  The top free dance score is 111.48 with the top ten all scoring above 97 points.  The top total score is 189.20 with the top 10 all scoring above 160.

The Shibutanis had their breakout season last year, taking home a World silver medal five years after their first World medal.  They also won their first US title in their sixth senior season.  Their free dance last year finally showed all of their potential with their impressive technical ability matched with a dramatic emotional performance matched with great music.  They’ll need a performance matching last year’s if they want to stay on top of a stacked US field and stay on the podium in an international field that now includes Virtue and Moir.  They have not competed yet this season, so this will be the first time judges have a look at their new programs.

Bobrova and Soloviev started their season with a gold medal at Ondrej Nepela Trophy.  All of the elements in their free dance earned Level 3 and 4 with all positive GOEs.  All of their program components were in the 9 range except for the transitions.  They were not able to compete at Worlds last year as she was disqualified due to the doping scandal that plagued many Russian athletes.  They have the 4th best short dance, 4th best free dance and 4th best total scores.

Hubbell and Donohue won gold at the US International Classic and silver at Finlandia Trophy.  At Finlandia Trophy, they received a Level 2 on one of their step sequences.  They also received all positive GOEs and program components in the 8s.  They have the 8th best short dance, 7th best free dance and 7th best total scores.

Ilinykh and Zhiganshin started their season strong last year with a medal at Cup of China.  But they weren’t able to medal at their next event, and finished 4th at Russian nationals, keeping them from any Championship teams.  They have not competed yet this season.

Guignard and Fabbri started their season with a gold at Lombardia Trophy.  They had Level 4s on all of the elements in their free dance except for their step sequences with positive GOEs on all of their elements.  They had 8s on some of their program components, but were in the 7s for skating skills and transitions.  They have the 8th best free dance and 9th best total scores.

Pogrebinsky and Benoit are starting their first senior season.  They were the US Junior Bronze Medalists and finished 4th at Junior Worlds.  While they were not the team most expected to move up to seniors this year, they are making the most of their opportunity.  They finished 4th at Nebelhorn Trophy in their first major senior international event.  They didn’t have the best levels in their free dance, earning Level 3s on their steps and a Level 2 and Level 3 on two lifts.  They did have all positive GOEs and program components in the 7s.  They have the 10th best short dance score.

They will skate the short dance on Saturday, October 22nd and the free dance on Sunday, October 23rd.

 

My podium predictions:

Gold: Shibutani/Shibutani

Silver: Bobrova/Soloviev

Bronze: Hubbell/Donohue

 

Bios of the competitors:
