I hear the performance tomorrow night is nearly sold out - if anyone is thinking of going, it's a good idea to call Ice Theater first and make sure tickets are still available.

Kim Navarro had skated with ITNY prior to her partnership with Brent, so this is a homecoming for her.

Beautiful program. FINALLY! After all that weird shiz and posing with Lady Gaga, finally something more subtle and emotional again. I like it! :saint:

Thanks! That was wonderful. Anyone know who choreographed this? Whoever it is, Johnny should work with them more.

According to the information with the video, he choreographed it himself.

Thanks. I missed that info. Well, then, I think he should continue working with himself in the future. :lol: Actually, I'd really like to see him work with some of the choreographers associated with the Ice Theatre. The programs that Paul Wylie did with Lars Lubovich are still among my favorites.
