Emily Samuelson and Evan Bates - 3/6/5
EW- Nice overall. He seems like a very strong partner. They have a nice look together.

FD: GREAT free dance. high energy - showed them off really well. Great dance spin - fast.
Kaitlyn Weaver and Charles Clavey - 7/5/6

EW- Little mis-match on extension. Nice otherwise.

Megan Calhoun and Kevin Miller - 12/12/12
EW- Look like they are new to the dance. Or new with each other.
PD - She almost fell on the back edge after slip steps.
Suzanne Lazarowitz and Nathan Jarmuth - 11/10/10
EW- Timing issues
This team was actually very interesting. They skate well, just not to the beats of the dances. And he lookes like the Dell spokesperson - my husband's comment was that all he could think was "Dude, you got a Dell". And she looks very grown up and serious. I think I am looking forward ot their free dance. It is music from James Bond movies. They should be very entertaining. They just seem so excited to be here and happy to be skating. I had fun with them.
