Tim's Tango Test

I'm risking my life by posting this without Tim's prior approval. However, considering he only reads the blog once a year whether he needs to or not, I may be relatively safe. While this video isn't the best example of our skating, I am pretty happy with this test. We had only one lesson on this dance although we did spend quite a bit of time practicing it ourselves. A few more lessons would have helped catch the things we couldn't see. But really, not too bad considering.

It was cold in that rink as you can see; Tim kept his jacket on and his hat had just come off. We had a timing issue which is pretty obvious on the second pattern and we definitely could have skated closer together, but for the amount of time spent on this dance I am happy with it. All three judges liked it too. So with that said, I'm posting the video for posterity. Thanks to videographer (and national dance silver medalist) Anna Li.

NOTE: Video removed after Tim gave me a huge guilt trip!

Dear Tim and Terri,
I learned so much from watching the ice dancing competition at Adult Nationals in Lake Placid! I saw Anna Li and Will win their medals too! I've posted some stories on Adult Nationals on my website www.Lifeskate.com if you are interested. I'm currently putting together the ice dancing story so I hope it does justice to all the hard work you guys out there put in! Best regards, Susan

Well this is interesting, it was working when I uploaded it but now it's not there. I will re-upload the video file tonight.

Well, glad to see the video is working. Of course, this time, I saw the timing errors you mentioned.

Was this test at that ginormous rink in Seattle? (that's the first time I've written that word - is it spelled right?
