New kids on the (ice)block (8-12mn)

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean won the gold medal for Great Britain at the 1984 winter Olympics.  Here is their final performance to clinch the title, performed to Ravel’s Bolero.  Even though the quality of the video is not perfect, the dancing certainly is!

In contrast here are teenage siblings, Oona and Gage Brown, practising their free dance in Bryant Park, New York early one morning in November.  Somehow it is even more moving that there is no audience and no applause, just two very talented skaters dancing their hearts out!
