New pattern dances
« on: June 21, 2017, 02:46:51 AM »
According to Ice Skating Australia there will be three new ISU pattern dances

Rhumba D’Amour
Maple leaf March
Tea-time foxtrot

It seems these are derived from performances of Torvill and Dean (1994), Gilles and Poirier (2016), and Kaliszek and Spodirev (2016).

So glad Rhumba D'Amour is finally getting off the ground. It would be a crying shame if a team as great as Torvill and Dean never got a compulsory (pattern) dance to their name. It's my second favourite competitive programme of theirs (their Paso Doble OSP being my all time favourite). I'll be interested to what the pattern entails - although I won't expect ever to be able to attempt it.  :laugh:
