Grand Prix Final Thursday Practice

Stopping in during a quick break between events! Just returned from Senior Dance and Senior Men's practices. Four out of the six dance teams practiced their free dance. Weaver/Poje and Pechalat/Bourzat practiced their short dance. There was a cute moment during Maia and Alex Shibutani's free dance run-through. As they were dancing to the swing music, Meryl Davis/Charlie White and Tessa Virtue/Scott Moir were also doing the dance steps behind them. I'm sure they're all very familiar with each other's programs! The Canton teams also ran through their short dance footwork and rhumba patterns.

Men's practice saw the usual amount of spills and popped jumps. Daisuke Takahashi didn't do any jumps in his run-through since he was up first. Everyone practiced their free skate. Jeremy Abbott had a few jump issues, but I think I saw him land a couple of quads. Patrick Chan really is a master of the blade. Jeremy's free skate is a masterpiece, and I hope he can nail it here.

Have to get ready for dinner and then back to the arena for the Junior Short Dance and Junior Men Short Program. Here are my photos from today's practices:
