This. Is. The. Best.

The Ice Dance competition concludes Tuesday with the free dance. Tune in to see Canada’s other dance teams, Alexandra Paul & Mitchell Islam and Kaitlyn Weaver & Andrew Poje, have their Olympic moment. Watch Tessa & Scott skate a captivating long program and then maybe tune out for approximately 5 minutes. Take a walk or something.
