The Music of the Night...

Figure skating

If you have any interest in figure skating at all, watch this ice dancing performance from Meryl Davis and Charlie White from the 2010 Nationals yesterday. It's just mesmerizing.

That music gets me, of course, but it's more than that. The choreography is amazing, and you can really tell that they've been skating together since they were nine years old. Their synchronization seems natural (although I'm sure they have worked very, very hard at it) and they clearly know and are very comfortable with each others' bodies. And in interviews they seem pretty down-to-earth. I like how White talks about how weird it was as a kid to be touching a girl like that. I'll definitely be rooting for them at the Olympics.

Thought: Are there any good ice skating romance novels? Ice dancing girl starts dating someone and her partner realizes he's actually been in love with her all along, or something? Seems like there should be.

That was an awesome video. Thank you for posting. Hop you don't mind me nabbing it, haha!

And maybe YOU should write that romance. I'd read it.

It's a very nice routine. I can't help but think that they don't quite hit the long lines that the music calls for though. There are places in the music where they could really enhance (IMHO) the routine if they stretched their extension to get the smooth graceful lines of the music.
