My first thought was : "OMG, I hope they are not dating together !"

Jeremy Abbott is dating Massimo Scali....check out Massimo's FB

I'm not sure the fact that they are working with Antonio Najarro automatically means that they are doing Flamenco.

Recently.. he choreographed Paul & Islam's very flamenco OD this past season.

Well, Antonio Narraro is the choreographer of the famous "Poeta" of Stephane Lambiel, and he himself is a flamenco dancer, but as far as I know, he worked with Lambiel for his tango program, too. I loved the results of their collaboration. I also loooved his works also with A&P and P&B for their ODs.

I can see Abott in Flamenco(anyway something latin) with his musicality, but Joubert? I'm surprised by his choice but at least he tries to do something new. It's already good!

:rolleyes: I was just coming back to correct myself.. I knew some Canadian ice dancers had worked with him..but I think it was for styling, not complete choreography..and now I think it was C/P. ( I need my coffee )
However Najarro is a tango specialist as well, so...?

Right, he was choreographer of Tango, which was performed by Stéphane at the beginning of this season. And also he choreographed with Lambiel and Brunner (if I'm not mistaken Salomé was also involved) SP of season 2007/08, "Carne Cruda".

Agree with those who wrote that they actually can't see Abbott in this "style". All Najarro's works I saw looked very passionate and a bit aggressive even. Not sure Abbott can show this. But... we'll see.

P.S. He is Najarro (http://www.antonionajarro.com/), not Navarro or Narraro. :)

Actually I find great difficulties imagining Joubert or even Abbott skating to Flamenco music...

Flamenco is not a word I ever expected to see in a sentence with Jeremy Abbott's name. Should be interesting, though. Maybe it will make him more aggressive.

It's not what I would pick for Jeremy or Brian, but I like seeing them try something different. Hopefully it will work.

Well, it will be Brian's SP. Brian has a been a tiny bit more adventurous with his SP. It is about time he challenges himself choreographically.

Somehow, I can see Jeremy doing Flamenco. But, Joubert? Good or bad, they will please ladies for sure. Good for everybody, I guess.

Antonio Najarro can choreograph flamenco, bolero, tango etc), Spanish classical ballet, contemporary dance! We do not know Brian's programmes (he asks for secret many years)!
Let us wait to see continuation, lol!
