Dancing at the Olympics


I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve always been pretty into the Olympics. So, you could say, this is my favorite time of (every 2) years. Right now, it seems everyone else is talking about the opening ceremonies. And why wouldn’t you? They were exciting. And the dancing was phenomenal, right? Especially since it was choreographed by an American.

But what I want to talk about is the figure skating. I haven’t even seen that much of it yet but I have been so impressed with the choreography so far this year. Like the first video. That Fosse-inspired piece performed by Kaetlyn Osmond of Canada.

And the men were just as breathtaking. Great lines. Wonderful movement. Patrick Chan (Canada) and Yuzuru Hanyu (Japan) were two of my favorites, but I can’t seem to find video of their programs right now. I’ll update later if I do.

In the meantime, tell me, what’s your favorite event at the Olympics? Have you been inspired to create new movement based on the athletes’ performances?
