Grishina has lovely presentation and elegant dance movements on floor. It is easy to watch her on floor without feeling like I'm watching someone being forced to dance. She has once again proven that she really is a good floor worker. The only things I will criticize is the ending pose and music. I know that I criticize a lot on my blog but I feel that it's my opinion and it needs to be heard. Not everything we humans do is perfect. I don't like the music and the ending pose. Grishina's choreographer never gives her a proper ending pose. It's like right after the tumbling pass she just stands there and then salutes. There is no creativity in her ending pose. It would make Grishina's floor so much better if she had better ending poses. I actually like her old floor routine better. But then again the ending pose is a buzz kill. I hope she will get a better or more formal/proper ending pose.
Grishina's old floor routine that I prefer more.
