Israeli ice dancing pair Roman and Alexandra Zaretsky—Belarus-born brother and sister—entered the “original dance” phase of the Olympics competition last night in 10th place. Theme: “folk dance.” And the song they chose to dance to was … “Hava Negila.” No, really (and, no, there was no chair-hoisting). Their costumes can best be described as ‘Ben-Gurion Chic.’ Take a look at their routine, after which they remained in 10th place.
Tonight is the final leg of the competition: the “free dance.” I suppose the Zaretskys’ song choice will be something like the theme from Schindler’s List, amirite??
Oh, wait, I am right.
