No doubt if you're a talented figure skater/ ice dancer or just an aspiring one you watched NBC's live coverage of the USFSA National Championships this past Saturday. For those who didn't get the chance I'm attaching a youtube video of Meryl Davis and Charlie White's Free Dance program. Their short program can also be viewed on youtube. Forget all the fancy lifts and extra interpretive stuff; if your aging diarist could just cleanly skate the compulsory version of the Viennese Waltz--or event the Dutch Waltz (!) to Strauss' music without injuring himself or maiming his partner that would be amazing. Anyway, here t'is. Hopefully your computer has enough memory and processor speed to show the video clip smoothly. If not, do yourself a favor and view this clip on a good one. Enjoy! (NB: Since I first published this post, the video, which is still on youtube, has been blocked. Copy and paste the link below).
