The Only Thing Better Than These Ice-Dancing Gold Medalists' Performance Is Their Coach's Behind-the-Scenes "Dance"

February 19, 2018

You know that thing when you’re onstage at a competition and you catch your teacher unconsciously marking through every step of the choreography in the wings, just willing you and the rest of the group to dance perfectly?

Yeah—that happens in ice dancing, too. Case in point: the scene at the Olympic rink yesterday, as Canadian ice-dancing legends Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir skated their way to their third Olympic gold.

Obviously, their performance was all kinds of epic. But the off-ice “performance” given by their coach, Marie-France Dubreuil, was EVERYTHING.

Congratulations to Tessa and Scott (and to Maia and Alex Shibutani, who earned the bronze for the U.S.!). And Marie-France: Please, please keep living your best life.
