2016 US Championships: Dance Preview

This Senior Dance event has had me on the edge of my seat for months following the Grand Prix Final. That being said, I have so many question:

  1. First and foremost, who will have the most garish costumes and music?
  2. Will the judging be fair?
  3. Will any of the placements have fans in an uproar?
  4. Which free skate will make cry? (eh hem, Shibutanis)
  5. Will there be any significant movements from the Short to the Free?
  6. Will Chock & Bates be given an unfair bump by the judges because they are International favorites?
  7. Which coach will wear the biggest scarf?
  8. Will Marina combust if her Shibutanis lose, yet again, to former students Chock & Bates?
  9. Will Hubbell and Donohue even be in the gold medal conversation or will there be, as in the past, a clear drop off between 2nd and 3rd?
  10. Can Hawayek & Baker step up and challenge for 3rd or will they just fall by the wayside as yet another great junior team?
  11. Does Alexandra Aldridge re-enter the conversation with her new pair-turned-dance partner Matthew Blackmer?
  12. Will anyone else impress us?
  13. What will be trending among skating tweeters after this event? (you know we won’t all be happy)
  14. And most importantly, will Ann Jensen and I get our artistry and unicorns?
