I secretly love watching performances like this. Figure skating programs, I mean.
When I was young, my mom would watch figure skating for what seemed like forever – and if I wanted to watch TV at all (and I did) I was forced to watch these figure skating routines. I learned to appreciate what was happening on the ice.
Historically, we talk a lot about love and passion in February, and there is no finer ‘PG rated’ examples than dance (dance with skates on in this case) to physically express the concept.
This is an extraordinary performance.
It’s Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres, from France, at the European Figure Skating Championships. It is fittingly set to The Weeknd’s “Earned It” from the Fifty Shades of Grey Soundtrack.
