Week 2:-

Hi All,

Well week 2 was a very deferent for me this year as I got to watch the show from the benches.
The girls were all so nervous but I really enjoyed it seeing them skate and think they did really well!
Had awesome time performing the pro opening number with Jayne.
Very excited and looking forward to week 3.Ray has been wonderful to work with and I am really happy to see him improve with the speed of light.
Keep your fingers crossed for us...

Week 3:-

Hi Everyone and Thank you again for your support!!!
Week 3...wow as you all saw made me so emotional....so very proud of Ray!!!Its just really rewarding when you see the hard work we have done paid off.
From years of experience as a dance coach I can say that it is really not easy to skate to such slow and romantic piece of music when you are only 20yo but he was just briliant!It was not easy at the begining of the week at all but we did work really hard with no day off and the results were great.
Next week is a challenging with so much content in our new routine.Keep your fingers crossed for us!
Much Love xx

Week 4:-

Thank you all for the lovely messages!
Week 4 was really challenging for us.We were so excited to skate to MJ.To be honest its not easy to skate to this kind of music on the ice and be able to do the exact MJ moves for 3 days.Ray tried his best and I am so very proud of him.The routine was packed with very difficult rotational and reverse rotational lifts that require great timing between the partners and I had to put a lot of trust in him but he was brilliant!There were a lot of nerves at the last rehearsals before the show but we did the best we can on the night.
Very sad to see Mel and Fred against each other on the skate off. They are my best mates.Well the show must go on...
Very fun routine for the next week so fingers crossed there will be less nerves this time!
Much love xxx

Week 5:-

Hi All,
Another fantastic week!
I must admit that I loved everything about it:the music,the choreo,costumes hair make up!It was so enjoyable!To be honest this routine came really fast together.It took a lot of practice and hard work but felt like we can do it over and over again and not get bored with it.
I am so proud of Ray,he is just amazing dancer and improving his skating skills so fast.We do have brilliant working relationships.
80's next week...a lot to practice as there are some very difficult skating elements and lifts in the new routine. Fingers crossed...
Thank you Everyone for your wishes and support!It helps a lot!

Week 6:-

WOW! What an amazing sunday show we had! Perfect score...something we did not expect at all and can not even describe how wonderful and rewarding this is!!! After we performed and got to seat on the seats we both could not stop shaking for a while ,it was such an adrenalin rush.
I absolutely adore Ray.It is pure joy to work and perform with him.
Ok roll on week 7,all I can say is the new routine is a 100 miles an hour!Extremely fast. Combination of very hard dance and skating elements.So wish us good luck.
Thank you everyone so much!
Lots of love
Maria xx

Hi All,
So sorry that I was not able to write anything last week for various reasons...my little boy was sick and didnt make the trip to London to see me so I had to deal with this,also was really busy with pro number and rehearsing with Ray.
Should be able to post 2 new blocs by the end of this week.
Thank you all so much for your amazing support!

Week 7 & 8:-
Hi Everyone,
Finally got few minutes to write about last two weeks.
Week 7 the rock and roll routine was so much fun to work on,very fast. Lots of falls and bruises but all worth it at the end!What an amazing score again we had!It is really rewarding to see such marks and comments from the judges.What can I say about Ray just Brilliant!We both love to be challenged. Its the most wonderful feeling when we start the week learning the new routine that seems impossibly hard and by the weekend we just love skating it!It may look like things come easy for Ray but actually its all down to hours of hard work and the fact that he just absolutely loves skating and his so eager to learn more.
Week 8 was the prop week. The hat! Actually the training was going very well. Yes we had few problems with the hat as it was really light and you would never know where its going to end up after trowing it( as you all saw on the night). Anyway Ray did great job with it! Must say he was very nervous as the hat went different direction on the last rehursal too so we could not be confident about it. Well I think this is a great experience and will make us work even harder. Much lower score from the judges but hey nobody is perfect.
This week routine is really hard and powerfull..so much skating in it..so fingers crossed we dont get too nervous...
Ah forgot to say few words about the group pro number..actually one word AWESOME! The boys rocked!
Take good care everyone and BIG THANK YOU!!!
Much Love xxx

Week 9:-

Hi All,
I feel like I want to start this blog with how proud I am of Ray performing his"Russian Split".It is very very difficult jump and so hard to do it in the routine and 3/4 to the end of it...and keeping calm after no matter how excited he was landing it! Would of never imagined in a million years that he would be capable to do this when I first started working with him back in November! How far he has come and I will say this again its down to a hard work,determination and the most wonderful work partnership we have!
We had a good score from the judges and great comments from Robin. Loved the costumes make up and my hair. Just want to say how wonderful job is done behind the scenes.I am really thankful to my make up and hair artists and our costume designer for making me feel so good performing.
This week's routine is my favorite so far.. I love the music. Feels like real Ice Dancing!Hope you guys and people at home like it and enjoy watching us as much as we enjoy skating it...fingers crossed!
Thank you so much for the support!

Week 10 (semi-final):-

Hi Everyone,
The semifinal week what can I say it was my favorite routine to skate!We just both loved skating it.It did felt like we were connected all the way. His solo was WOW so hot!
Lovely comments from Nicky.I just want to say again how amazing partner is Ray. Pushing himself every week,loving the challenge!I wish I had him as a partner when I competed years ago.
The Final....so much work!We are preparing 3 routines..very very exhausting but we absolutely love it! The flying is very challenging for Ray as he gets sick from spinning in the air but its getting better every day and the music its just lovely!We created our Bolero and it will be the icing on the cake to skate it!So please keep voting for US!We really want to do it!!!
Thank YOU ALL so so very much!

Much Love xxx

Week 11 (Final):-

BIG BIG THANK YOU ALL!!!!
I am still really emotional about sunday..a night to remember forever!!!

It was very intense and hard week leading to that amazing night.We had so much to work on in no time. The flying was such a task and so unpredictable but Ray did amazingly well.He made it look so easy.We really enjoyed skating to that song and I think it helped a lot. The score what can I say...awesome!
Favorite routine...it was definately our Favorite!All the words in the song were what we felt skating it!
Must admit the hardest moment must have been waiting to hear if we are skating the Bolero...we wanted it so badly! Creating the Bolero was beautiful experience.We wanted to tell a story and show how much we loved skating together..we wanted to make it really personal and touching.
I can hardly put in words what me and Ray felt skating it..it was magical!
The most amazing comment from Kris I must say it was such an honor!Nicky was very emotional too.
Winning....WOW...all I could do was let all the tears of joy...The best present for mothers day!
Ray is the best partner I can ever wish for and beautiful person inside out and I am really thankful for all the hard work he put week after week and making my job so enjoyable!
My little son was so proud of us winning.He watched everything on youtube the next morning and was so happy to see me holding that trophy!
Well very sad that is all over...but I am really looking forward to the tour.It is going to be spectacular!So come and see it!
And finally Thank you so much for supporting us all this weeks and hope to meet you on the tour.

Much Love xxx

Hi All,
Thank you so much for coming and supporting us on tour!!!WE are having amazing time skating together and being able to hear the audience go wild every time we skate!!!
16 wins so far and loving every time when we get to do the bolero.
It is very difficult with internet on tour and the time we have to rest is so limited that I will not be able to come online often but will try to give you updates as much as possible.
My son is coming for a week to watch and I am very very excited that he is going to be with me.
Well I must go now but Big thank you once again!!

HI EVERYONE!
Finally got a little bit of time and internet to give you some updates about the tour.
Well as most of you know we are doing brilliant so far...Doing the bolero every show still feels amazing as we really love skating it!Ray has been fantastic on tour..he works so hard with no days off(as he rehurses for Greese).Its absolute pleasure to skate with him and it will be so sad when we finish in a week...hopefully we get to skate together on tour next year.
My little boy came to visit in Manchester and we had so much fun spending time together.He absolutely loved the show and watched it 5 times.It was so special skating and knowing he is there and so proud of me.
The atmosphere backstage is great. Everyone is really friendly and we all have good time together.
Thank you all again for the messages and it was so lovely too meet some of you after the
shows!
Much Love xxx
