Great work by Jecca.
It is always good to see Zoe & Chris perform. They are inspiring for all (even a skater parent like me).
By the way my 2 are friends with the film maker & I even had a modest role in one of her early films (well i was interviewed  :) )

Interesting what they both said towards the end about coaching pairs.

For dance, coaching is similar for both; even some ladies do lifts/carries in free dance competitions.
In pairs this is very different; think about a lasso lift or a death spiral; having both male/female coaches together is invaluable.

Pair skaters, & pair coaches are rare in the UK, it would be nice if there were a few more.

I wonder if some ballet dancers/couples would progress fairly quickly in pairs due to the similarities.
