Sounds like a pretty limited pairs test skate then...

Can't WAIT to see footage of Volosozhar and Tranks. Hope to see Gerboltd and ENgbert skate too.

I'm glad Leonova's trying something different than the typical ladies LPs, but all I can think of when watching that video is the difference between the level of expression and voidiness of the choreographer versus Leonova...

Just look at the hairstyle... The choreographer exudes voids. I love it. And, the program, too...

Not sure if it had already been posted in here, but in looking for more info about the pairs test skate, did find someone confirming that Smirnov's injury was a groin issue, and that he only just recently got back on the ice

I found the interesting video of Alena Leonova practicing. Probably it's her new program.

I didn't think I would ever post this, but I'm really looking forward to seeing Leonova's programs this year. Circus act followed by a witch is an interesting combination, to say the least. Good for her for trying something different! :watch:

I wish I could see her choreographer skate this.

Any word on who the third Russian lady at Rostelecom will be, or will that be decided by test skates? (I hope to God it's not Gozeva)

RE Alenova's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCX6WxfSNjg
This could be exciting, but.....

Olga Volozhinskaia is excellent at Broadway Jazz and several other dance styles.

To make this look superb, Leonova better takes some serious Broadway jazz dance classes, with emphasis on isolations, contractions, ball-change steps, hip rolls and walks, etc….. Otherwise she’ll look like a Rave dancer… on substance.

I think it will be decided by early Russian cup events. And I'm afraid it will be Gozeva :mad: 'cause Artemyeva did really bad at the test skates, Gerboldt skates in pairs and younger girls who eligible are all on JGP

Hope Kozyreva can have a great event at one of those....

Damn. I was hoping it would be Biryukova. Oh, well. Leonova had better bring the voids.

Any volunteers to give him groin massages? :D
