Ice dancers Emily Samuelson & Evan Bates, the 2008 World Junior champions and 2010 U.S. bronze medalists, announced today they have ended their 10-year professional relationship with coaches Yuri Chesnichenko and Yaroslava Nechaeva at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube in Ann Arbor, Mich., and will train with Igor Shpilband and Marina Zoueva at the Arctic Edge in Canton, Mich.

Shpilband and Zoueva also coach 2010 Olympic ice dancing champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada and 2010 Olympic ice dancing silver medalists Meryl Davis & Charlie White. They previously mentored 2006 Olympic silver medalists Tanith Belbin & Ben Agosto.

On the main page under last post topics, this thread comes up as "Samuelson and Bates split..." I was :eek: when I first saw it.

But the news of coaching change isn't all that great either. :( Why does everyone go to Shpilband and Zoueva? Do all the U.S. ice dancers love Michigan that much? :confused:

Well they were already in Michigan, and aren't they UM students? I suppose they would want to stay in Michigan? So this makes sense from that point of view.

Yeah...


At least their toe point and posture are too good for Zueva & Shpilband to destroy? I was hoping they would go to Krylova & Camerlengo

And Evan's roommates (Charlie White, Alex Shibutani) already train with Shpilband/Zoueva. It's going to make for some interesting competition at Nats this coming year, with at least 4 top teams (Samuelson/Bates, Davis/White, Shibutani/Shibutani, Chock/Zuerlein) all in the Shpilband/Zoueva camp.

I'd have had a HEART ATTACK seeing this title from the main page, but I had a head-ups about the coaching change so I realized it must be that. Or I'd be dead. But some other folks might not have that advantage. So maybe we can merge the two threads and keep the OTHER THREAD TITLE

Marina/Igor now have more or less a monopoly at Arctic Edge. I don't think it's actually good for ice dance in the US.

SORRY. Yeesh. It's impossible to know how the thread title will show up on the main page.
