Adrian Schulteiss came immediately to mind. Jeff Buttle and Kurt Browning, too.

Reaching back, Christopher Dean, and he still has the magic touch.

G/P's The Feeling Begins was definitely the most :eek: I've ever seen in the past two decades, infinitely more intricate and difficult than all other teams behind them (and that's pre-CoP!), but I couldn't get the hype about Memorial, which was just a couple of random, ugly squatting moves thrown together for them to race around the rink for 4 1/2 minutes.

Someone mentioned Vocalise by G/G (or was it in another thread :lol:)? That was by far the best pairs program I've ever seen. Was that based on the concept that Katia was a statue that came to life?

What made Memorial so impressive for me was how everything kept moving and how each element came out of almost nowhere. Before, G&P were known for fast and difficult footwork but this FD was more about difficult choreography, how each of the elements were done with little set-up time and they were very well-interconnected with one another. I found The Feeling Begins to be magnificent in terms of its difficulty but I personally preferred both Memorial and Prelude & Allegro in terms of how everything kept moving from one manoeuvre to the next (I also preferred the expression as well). Just my opinion of course.

I think their 1994 FD to La Strada was much more difficult and interesting than those two (I love those two too) !

I wonder who Sandy Sue is. That's the person listed in his ISU bio (http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00010696.htm) as his LP choreographer.
