Grassroots To Champions (Audrey Weisiger's coaches education company) is hosting an Online Choreography Competition. You can find it on you tube here:http://www.youtube.com/G2CYAS
The contestants range in age from 8 to 28 and have to complete a series of choreographic "challenges"!
The first one is up and each number gets a short evaluation by the judge: KURT BROWNING!!!!!:D

This is totally fun and has feel and look of a reality show! Check it out!!!!!

There are also "tip" videos and interviews with famous choreographers, judges, skaters, etc! What and AWESOME channel!

Very cool. Challenge #3 is "Return to the Classics".

Hope I have time to see them all! I loved the one with Peter Liebers.

WOW! I was sooooo impressed with 2A and 2B! Yah! Rumor has it Liebers will keep his 2B number for exhibition program this season! These kids are very creative. Who will be the next David Wilson!

. . .and I'm so happy to be watching skating without calculating!:fsu10: :blah:

There needs to be a return to freedom in the artistry of our sport. :TnD1:

Without so many jump passes skaters can experiment and create!:wall:
I'm not saying that this is what needs to happen with competition, but I would like to see more freedom in the free program! :soapbox:

Too many jumps look all the same to the layperson. . . so refreshing and inspiring to see a new generation of choreographers developing such EXTREME passion for what is possible on the ice!:wideeyes:

Thank you Audrey for sharing your creative idea with the skating community!:fan21:

Happy Independence Day Everyone!:cool:

I've been following it- I've voted for a different young choreographer each time. Well, except the proper seating one ...I just couldn't decide when it came to that one.

I also enjoy the videos of the various judges awarding stars to the works and giving feedback.

Well, back to watch the rest of the 3's.

I've really been enjoying Joel Dear's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wljqESz36Zg) work.

His piece for Challenge 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rA4y9Nlsuw,set to Giselle.
