When it comes to spectacles that truly take my breath away, ice dancing is certainly up there with the most powerful.
More expressive than figure skating, ice dancers use their footwork and body movements to convey expressions and feelings in a way that appeals to even the most frozen of hearts (see what I did there).
A lot of the success or failure lies in the music, which is why Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron set the bar of expectation high when they elected for Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” …
Gabriella and Guillaume, dressed respectively in a red dress and neutral black suit that presented an eye-catching contrast, made their way out into the centre of the ice rink and captivated their audience from the word Go.
With Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” filling the ears of the crowd, the two glide around the rink with sublime grace, instantly in-sync with each other and enjoying every moment of their performance.
As someone who can barely stand upright on ice skates, I can’t even begin to fathom the level of mastery Gabriella and Guillaume have. Years of stringent discipline and unwavering dedication mean that they’re capable of delivering a show that literally leaves people wrestling with their own emotions.
