notes

tessa and scott have chosen carmen for their free dance so i hope with this post to give us fans a good background in what other dance teams have done with the music. this is far from a definitive list. if you know of any more dances, email or tweet me.

thanks goes to lucia white who suggested this idea on twitter. thanks also to jobelle, cherub721, pani and martyross for helping me with research.

This must have been time consuming. Thanks to everybody that contributed! I was particularly curious to see the krylova Carmen performance from 1998 since that's the one people generally talk about, but surprisingly it didn't do anything for me.

Love C/L's Carmen. I think T/S's program is gonna be very different, just based on the few pics we've seen. This season is looking great so far, I absolutely loved W/P's FD...just gorgeous. And I really liked B/S and H/D's programs too. The only one I didn't like was P/B's FD. Can't wait to see how the other teams do.

Like you want T/S's program to be the first one you see or the first Carmen you see?
