Meryl and Charlie doing modified skating moves!

(For the record, it’s actually quite difficult for skaters to translate moves into off-ice versions. There’s no ice. Or blades. It’s very different. You’ll notice here that they must turn on their toes, while in skating you are typically on the balls of your feet with very slight/precise shifts of weight. Every minute way in which they move their bodies had to be unlearned and adjusted. So don’t give them crap about “having an advantage.” Aside from athletic and performance skills—which many previous contestants share—they’ve actually had to tackle extra challenges after “dancing” a certain way for 17+ years!)
