The piece contains many dances between the two of them, some of them comic including one where Dean is actually wearing ordinary shoes on the ice as he is learning to adaptsome of them romantic and passionate, and some of them highly dramatic, including dancing separately with the company dancers representing the people from their respective planets. For the most part, Dean wears a costume almost identical in design to his Song of India costume, only this time, rather than being red and orange, this one is red and burgundy, representing his fiery origins.
Torvill wears an Ice Queen costume complete with crown, silver hair, and silver blue dress cut like icicles at the bottom. This medley of Irving Berlin numbers danced in tribute to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers was devised for the brief tour Torvill and Dean did with the Ice Capades in but continued as the final number throughout their long Russian All Stars Tour into For costumes Chris wore full white tie, waistcoat, and tails, while Jayne wore a flowing near full-length blue dress complete with blue feather boa.
Although neatly choreographed with spectacular music and lighting effects, it was arguably not as evocative of Fred and Ginger or as technically accomplished as the amazing "Puttin' On the Ritz" routines that they performed at the Skate Canada Amateur exhibition in One impressive component however was the incorporation of tap steps on ice during the middle of the routine.
During the All Stars Tour and possibly the Ice Capades as well they kept to a similar theme for the final bow, skating on with the company to I Got Rhythm. Little is known about this piece and it has never been released commercially and possibly never recorded.
It was created as one of their pieces for the Ice Capades Tour. In their autobiography, Dean states that he passed on the dance for Isabelle and Paul Duchesnay to perform inand that the dance was about the relationship between a boy and a girl, with the boy breaking in upon the woman's dreams .
Both Dean and Torvill seem eager for responses to their new routines in the show and gratified with the verdict that everything is just great, with special accolades going to " Eleanor Rigby ".
It was their newest routine and it's a very interesting version of the song, undertaken with Paul McCartneyhaving little relation to the earlier Beatles recording. Dean and Torvill hated the movie but really liked that version of the song.
Torvill is the fragile title character, clad in muted white with pastel tones across the costume. He is a kind of dream lover to her, dressed in mostly black; he is both exciting and dangerous. She fears him, but she wants him too, and eventually her desire overcomes her fear. That is ultimately her undoing, as he twirls her round and round his body and she can do nothing but be manoeuvred at this will.
It ends with her in a crucifix form across his back as he carries her off into the fog. She was right to fear him after all The performance consists of many highly balletic dances between Torvill and Dean and a few solo performances with the other company members present on the ice.
The piece does evoke traditional Russian ballet and both Torvill and Dean perform extremely well throughout with many beautiful and unique moves. The costumes are simple — Chris in a flamboyant white shirt piece and Jayne all in white, very similar to, if not the same as, as her costume in Shepherd's Song. Originally filmed and performed for the one-off televised production with the Russian All Stars at the Luzhniki rink in Moscow init is not clear whether it became a permanent part of the Russian All Stars Tour, but it seems likely that it was performed in at least the first five months of the Tour.
It is not clear whether another company performance they were working on under Chris's choreography at the time, La Ronde, was ever completed or performed. It would appear that it was probably disbanded and replaced with Akhnaton. Excerpt taken from Torvill and Dean's autobiography: . Tatiana wanted to do a story of Paganini, portraying two sides to his character. Niccolo Paganini was many things: the greatest violin virtuoso of the last century, a composer, the megastar of his day, and romantic adventurer devoured by melancholy.
He had seemed to Tatiana to be a perfect hero for Russian — a soul in conflict with himself. Yuri Ovchinikov would be dancing Paganini's crazy persona, Chris dancing the creative one, with Jayne as the great man's muse. Neither of us took to the number, but restrained ourselves for the sake of a peaceful life.
Performed to South American music, this routine was always very dimly lit for performance, giving the impression of two people on the run, traveling at night and contending with the elements.
Chris wears grey-brown trousers and shirt, with Jayne in a simple one-colour burnt red dress. They performed this throughout the Russian All Stars Tour and at various exhibitions including the Sports Aid Gala and recreated it in for the American Artistry on Ice documentary. One thing that required our attention was Chris's response to some Andean music, which reminded him of the terrible things — particularly the officially sanctioned kidnappings — that had been happening in Chile and Argentina in recent years.
The subject was very much in the air after the Falklands War, and more recently the Costa Gavras movie, Missing.
Chris saw in his mind those who had vanished, the fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, lovers, friends and children, and devised a series of movements linking two people who could be seen as friends or brother and sister, confronting authority, cowering before it, searching for lost loved ones, and ending where they started, in limbo.
Akhnaton is another company performance devised for the Russian All Stars Tour that was never commercially released on film, and no known copies exist. The costumes were of traditional Egyptian royalty design.
The piece received good reviews including repeated praise in the New York Timesand they refer to the piece regularly in their autobiography. Excerpt taken from Torvill and Dean's autobiography: . Chris had been interested for a while in ancient Middle Eastern history, and on a trip to London immersed himself in the Egyptian room of the British Museum.
He liked the feel of the mythology, Isis and Osiris, Pharaoh as god, the idea of dying as rebirth into the real world, the richness of the funerary ornamentation, all that gold lapis lazuli, the stylised poses in the paintings, the hieroglyphics, and in particular the love story of Akhnaton and his queen Nefertiti. This is not exactly top ten material — minimalist style, vastly long phrases of repeated notes, but in mood just what Chris was looking for.
All we needed was to reduce a three-hour epic to 30 minutes. To do that demanded total immersion in the story and imagery. It was an odd thing to do, which involved some long negotiations on our behalf with Philip Glass himself.
The dance opened with a strong image to seize and hold the audience. A huge pyramid of silk, foot square at its base, was being admired by modern tourists.
Suddenly, a line attached to the top whipped the Never My Love - Yes - The Goddess Of Mercy (CD) up and away, revealing the world of ordinary Egyptians in the 14th century BC, all in skirts and sandal-like skates. Widely available on the Russian All Stars video realised inthe group number involved the whole company dressed up as a pack of cards — representing different suits, numbers, and court characters. It is a very lighthearted piece with little substance and was clearly provided as accessible comic relief from the other more demanding group pieces.
Jayne and Chris come on at the end with the spades. Each dancer carries a large representing card, Jayne's is the Queen of Spades and Chris's is the King. Jayne skates mainly with the female skaters in a group with Chris joining them, defending them from the comic advances of the Joker in the pack. Chris wears black trousers, white shirt and waistcoat, with a sparkly red bowtie and jacket with gold lapels.
Jayne has a very short flashy red dress with a spade in the middle. Presumably designed at the beginning of the All Stars Tour, though possibly not until later in the run, this is something of a forgotten masterpiece, even though it has always been available on the Russian All Stars video. Both are dressed in shiny white outfits with blue and mauve embroidery.
The ice is lit a wintry blue and the movements take full advantage of the images of Husky-drawn sleighs, winter pageants, and snow-covered landscapes that the music evokes so successfully. The dance is immensely fast and yet graceful at the same time.
It actually begins in a static lift already posed as the lights go up, and it contains many large lifts from then on. Jayne leaps effortlessly onto Chris's shoulders on a number of occasions and, in one move, even leaps all the way round him, going above his head, with seemingly very little assistance they later incorporated this move into Mack and Mabel for their Face the Music Tour in the mid '90s.
It contains many symmetrical dance steps and large sweeping arm gestures, with a succession of impressive lifts and a series of symmetrical jumps and leaps carried out in perfect unison with each other, giving the impression of animals running through the forest.
Unique to this dance is a series of two symmetrical steps where they literally leap high into the air together but leaning forward with their inside leg bent as they plunge back to the ground, putting their outside leg straight out behind them.
The move actually makes them look like two stags leaping and bounding and thrusting their antlers forward. The piece ends with Jayne throwing herself onto Chris, who bends with Jayne balanced on his knees and allows himself to fall flat on to his back, ending with Jayne suspended in the air Never My Love - Yes - The Goddess Of Mercy (CD) up by Chris, forming a dramatic and very beautiful final tableau as Chris continues to glide across the ice on his back.
Devised initially as one of the new extra pieces for the second leg of the Russian All Stars Tour, this piece went on to be performed for competition to win the World Professional Championships inand they were still performing a section of it by their Ukrainian Tour. The finished piece is actually an ensemble of three quite separate routines, which they later performed in different orders or simply on their own. The first is a tradition lighthearted Irish jig with some very clever footwork.
The second is a more sombre dance done to older tradition Irish Folk music. The third piece is a more modern piece, a very beautiful new age number done to a song sung by an Irish female artist.

My brother said AA is better than chirch, which makes sense because its a group of broken leople, humbled by their mutual failure trying to help each other get up and stay up, with the help of and reliance on a higher power. I prayed for years for my children to come to the Lord, 2 of them were so resistant they would become angry if I mentioned it, so I stayed quiet and prayed which is often the key.
How sad is it that my biggest fear for them after such joy of their conversions, is that he chirch will hurt them. They now try to get ME to go to church and I resist. Happy for them but worry constantly they will be damaged by the culture american christianity often is. My dad used to say we are simply beggars showing other beggars where to find food.
That humble sense of equality I dont see in most believers. I found this post after looking up the effects of judging others. I wondered if being hurt from someone judging me or more to the point being critical was just me being over sensitive. But I see that it actually is meant to hurt. Point 3 is very poignant. Words do wound and can leave scars. Yes words can hurt just like it hurt me when I went to church tonight for their last dinner for a while until the new year began.
Or am I? My dad for over 60 yrs, let judgmental comments from his mom, keep him distant from God. My mom prayed over him from the 70s until he passed Dad was ready. It was the last sane decision he made to let Christ back into his Life.
My dad about ate had gone to a revival and came home so excited. He felt embarrassed, humiliated, and and ashamed. Once I saw it in the Spirit, I was forever changed. We no longer seek revenge. Then suddenly the emotions that snare us, fall off like chains unlocked. I love this article because the judgement part is an even deeper aspect for me. Love and integrity. This is exactly what strayed me away from my faith. Judgmental Church. When you dont show up every single sunday, they let you know.
Its more of a social occasion than food for the soul. Also their members are fLling like flies and they try to talk me into coming back. Thank goodness I have found a different church finally! One I fit in. I think this is great! Thank you for the good read. I know I am not alone. Carey, Thank you for your article. It was perfect. My heart breaks at some of the comments above: those who have been hurt by the church and those who disregard them. Many of the hurt comments above were not asking Christians to accept sinfulness, they were asking to be heard and respected.
The only way we can ever disciple anyone properly is to actually listen to where they are coming from. Listening to them is not the same as agreeing with them. It simply shows that we respect them as people enough to hear what they have to say and then gently guide them through the scriptural truth.
We must stop shouting people down and instead usher them to Jesus and let Him, His Holy Spirit and His Word do the convicting of hearts. All arrogance and anger will get is rejection of our Savior.
We will stand accountable for this. This was powerful for me and got me in tears because of its truth and convicted my heart on when I too have judged…. God bless you ministry. This is one of the best articles I have read in a very long time! We are all works in progress.
Thanks again! Just pray and ask GOD to close that door against that church, forgive as well to keep line of communication flowing. Too much there. I have believed all my life. I read my Bible almost every day, and I am seriously tired of judgemental Christians. I have a family member who is one. She seems to have a penchant for picking out my children to bestow her wealth of Christian advice, selfless wisdom, and her great abundance of self-righteousness. That she was led by God to tell my adult children they are sinners and will rue the day that they misstepped.
I love my children, who are my responsibility. They are my gift from God and I do my best. I pray on my knees most nights for them, and pray most days, and pray most afternoons.
I have been a failure in so many ways that I am left humbled and saddened. One child is gay, and one tried suicide. I understand hardship, and doubt. Telling us in so many words that we are failures, that we are undesireable people. That she is the angel God sent to save us. She says this, all while she is not looking in her own backyard, or her own household. All while she has really not communicated or visited for a good long while.
My sister now ruined any chance of my child ever listening to her. What good does that do? How effective has my sister been? Did it change anything? That will work in a way they can choose getting professional help.
What a great post. He is praying the same prayer that they all may have life and have it to the full. May your sister discover a burning passion for Christ and burn with love and care for all those she meets.
Thank you so much. I was never judgmental. But at some point I started a program that says that truth is hard that Grace has made Christians misbehave and sin conciously. But whenever I speak with them with love. They open up to me. Though trying to practise truth made me to bee too concious of not sinning. Recently I went back to how I used to communicate with the Holy Spirit. I want to really understand how I can work with Grace and Truth. Because honestly the Truth seems so hard alone.
But I know same Jesus brought both Grace and Truth. So what should I do. Yes, in an ideal world I would come every Sunday. No one is. Only Christ Jesus. I have not confronted her about how I feel yet. I already battle anxiety and depression. And with that I have these thoughts of simply disappearing instead of facing and dealing with this issue.
The article is so right about wanting to run away from judgment. Remember 1 Corinthians 13, read it what does that speaks to you, for GOD what? So loved the world. Garrison and Kevin, I too am saddened that the church has hurt you this badly.
I pray we will all do better at displaying the love of Christ and being humble enough to remember that everyone of us are broken by sin. I wish there was a way to rewind and undo past damage. I know there have been days I have said and done judgmental things to people and I still regret it. I fear there may be days I do it again, but my goal and my aim is not to do that though. I pray that you will see past the broken people that hurt you to the Christ who is perfect and redeemed you.
People want their Pastor to be Tony Robbins when in reality its just a christian themes motivational seminar, just look at Joel Osteen and other TV superstar pastors. Others are talking about doom and gloom end of the world predictions, Illuminati conspiracy theories and how the founding Church is evil, trying to sell you a book on how to beat the end times.
People are looking for magical supernatural proof of God in Healings, financial growth and luxurious lifestyles instead of being Holy and saintly in their walk of life. Husband and wife preachers run the new churches with their adult kids as successors to the throne. God is great and he gives us the tools in the church for His Will not ours, to be humble not pompous, not afraid but fearless.
What do you think? Can you please explain why my Daughter is alive today and I have 3 grandchildren where the Doctor gave up, and also why I still have my toe that Dr saw wanted to do a partial amputation? Also being on the internet a big sin? The book sold as ravenous book to any person gullible to buy it. Pretty portion of content. I simply stumbled upon your web site and in accession capital to claim that I get actually loved account your blog posts.
Any way I will be subscribing to your augment or even I fulfillment you get right of entry to persistently quickly. Does one offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs? Again, awesome web log! Thank you for your wonderful article outlining judgement vs help and love. My husband and I have moved across several states into a new culture, and that also means a new church. He is comfortable anywhere the Word is preached, whereas, I am a very touchy-feeling-have to feel ok about so many things before I join a church and its people.
Your article helped right my potentially sinking ship and Never My Love - Yes - The Goddess Of Mercy (CD) me a few pointers about loving and helping as a focus. Thank you, again! But to say there is no truth in liberalism is a lie and to say there is nothing but truth in conservatism is also a lie. Both are wrong. To say trurh is only on one side is dangerous and wrong. While what you say about truth in the two camps is correct some of the time. Your closing statement is entirely false.
It amounts to moral abuse. The Nazis were entirely wrong. Slavery is entirely wrong. I think you get my point. We are to go out into the world Never My Love - Yes - The Goddess Of Mercy (CD) evangelize, but meeting together is to prepare us for this work.
As we gain experience as believers we should realize that the Christian life can and should be lived without a dependency on the behavior of others. Any group of believers might contain some who are shallow. In my experience they all do. While working in harmony with others is a biblical admonition, we must rely on His goodness, not the goodness of others. If our support for ministry depends on the character of fellow Christians the devil has already won.
I guarantee disappointment sooner or later. That there are church members who do not reflect Christ well is for some an excuse to retire to a comfortable spot where their opportunities and concomitant responsibility to serve are limited.
Hi, I like this humble, truthful article. We humans all are sinners. We ALL judge others in one way or another. I too find it hard to connect in my church. I have joined the groups and do serve in my church. I have been bullied out of serving in different areas of my church. I have been looked down on, told my hair is dry and my skin is ugly, ignored obviously! Now, it is almost ridiculous. I stuck it out but I am still judged by some of the meanest people in church and they are leaders in my church.
I am almost to the point I want to ask them why? When you are truly a christian and love Jesus, He lives inside you. He changes us from the inside out. Jesus loves people. I know we are to forgive others and love them as God loves us. It does hurt deeply when you are hurt in church, more so because we believe people in church are saints!
Love to you all! Satan is like a hungry beast!! Sometimes I wonder if many of them have mental problems because they seem obsessed with pointing out the so called sin in others but they themselves are often selfish, arrogant, dishonest etc. Honestly they seem almost happy to say that all the unbelievers are going to burn in Hellfire.
Jesus made it clear that love is the most important thing and sadly I see very little of that coming from most Christians. You must live in an entirely different world than me. I have met thousands of Christians. I know dozens of fundamentalists pretty well. You describe a parody of Christians. Or maybe the plank in your eye keeps you from seeing that it does indeed describe those around you or even maybe you yourself.
After all God will judge Christians and non-Christians alike. And I think we agree that God is love. The trash can of history is loaded with false archetypes.
Nearly every persecution or pogrom that ever took place was the result of them. Anytime we begin to relish the animosity we have toward another group or individual we must fall to our knees in prayer, difficult as it may be. Jennifer Roth, I have the same view of fundamentalist Christians as you.
Not all, certainly, but way too many fundamentalists are quick to judge others when they should be focused on what is in their own hearts and on their own journey of growing closer to Jesus. The notion suggested by the author, that the presence of judgment drives out the presence of love, is a very good one in my opinion.
Jesus above all commanded us to LOVE. We are to love God, and love one another. Christians seem to be the most judgemental of each other. They always seem to be hurting each other and rejecting each other.
And unbelievers notice this. Excellent article. Judging others is fraught with peril. Learn from history. Thank you for highlighting this. Calling the command! In that case you would have to leave this world. Do not even eat with such people. What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? There you have it; Christians MUST judge those inside the church, but leave judgment of people outside the church to God. Judging by handing the sexually immoral etc over to satan is done without cruelty.
The author is talking about unwarranted judgement toward repentant christians. Which they add up to almost 20k and keeps him and his family in a house too…. Never My Love - Yes - The Goddess Of Mercy (CD) David.
I am sorry you have had bad experiences with pastors. I did want to say however that I am a pastor. I can tell you that neither I nor a majority of the pastors I have known and serve under sacrificed rather than gained from serving the church. I admit, there have been a couple, but in the vast minority.
Granted many of us do make our living as pastors, however that is scriptural. I will tell you that pastoring is every bit a full-time and then some calling. I have tremendous respect for men who do work a regular job and pastor. I have interviewed with a church that would have made that mandatory for me and my family to live, however, they chose someone else whom I know and respect to lead them. They have since been able to pay him a full-time salary, but not because he asked for it.
You are correct that money is the wrong motivator to serve as pastor, but there are also very few churches that can afford to give a tremendous salary to a pastor. Most pay under what the average church member makes, but many pay at least the average income. Without the intent of boasting, I will tell you that when I began speaking to my current church, they were offering less than what I was making as a worship pastor at my previous church that church was larger in size. However, I had not asked the amount of pay when they told me, nor was I concerned about it.
They called me back in a week and told me they decided to pay me more and when they told me I gave God praise because they offered nearly what I was making at my previous church which would cover all of our living expenses. But we just prayed and God provided her with an even better paying job. Little did we know that I would need a surgery for my heart shortly after that would result in thousands of dollars of expenses.
I understand that those people are out there, but they really are the exception and not the rule. We all fail in different ways. That is the whole reason we need grace. I hope your experiences turn out to be better. I do think Carey nails this plainly on the head regarding being judgmental.
I have that problem a lot in my own life and am striving every day to do better because I too want people to know Jesus and instead of knowing Christians to be jerks.
I pray that you encounter better examples as you meet more Christians. I too am a recovering judgmental person. The lowest common denominator of everyone I have a problem with is that they are Christians. Everything from adultery to judgement. I have sought out the Church for answers and found every one of them turning their back on me. Only once we get that truth will we begin to be helpful like Carey mentioned. Will you please consider continuing to look for a church that WILL help.
I pray this helps. The enemy has been very successful in keeping believers from speaking out against behavior that is obviously destructive out of fear of being judgmental. The fact is that sooner or later the results of destructive behavior sin manifest themselves in a ruined life.Make It Hot - Smokin Beats - Ready To Fly (Vinyl, LP, Album), Madredeus & A Banda Cósmica* - Castelos Na Areia (CD, Album), Disco Sucks, Bass Chanel 9 - Various - Mastermixers (Volume One) (Vinyl, LP), In The Hand Of The Moon - Billie Davies - Hand in Hand in the Hand of the Moon (CD, Album), 16 Toneladas (Sixteen Toons), Raga - Various - Ossiach Live 1971 (CD), Expulsion (7) - Nightmare Future (Vinyl, Album), Leave - Ying Yang Twins - Chemically Imbalanced (CD, Album), Star Fleet (Star Fleet Cd) - Van Halen - Thats All Folks (CDr), Дальше и дальше - Александр Кутиков - Best.
