Isobel & Paul Ducheney Tribal Free Dance

Our next team made a dramatic change in their style, boosting their notoriety on the World Figure Skating stage with a new choreographer and a new approach.

While it’s fair to say that this Free Dance flew in the face of the rules at the time (choreo slides were not a thing, and sliding on your knees and butt were huge infringements), few would disagree that Isabel and Paul Duchesnay’s Tribal Dance excited tv audiences and brought a new energy to the Ice Dance event in its wake.

Anyone who doubts the athleticism of Ice Dance, check out the fierce pistol squat and lunge sequences that Paul Duchesnay bounds through in this routine. Quads of steel!
