View Full Version : Skaters with the most interesting choreographies

There are many skaters whose good choreographies make them more interesting than others. Which skaters do you find to have the most interesting choreographies?
Bourne & Kraatz
Davis & White
S & S
Kwan – I don’t get phenomen of “Lyra Angelica” and Tosca (I think Aranjuez was her best LP at nats), but even though that I think she had one of the best choreographies ever. Taj Mahal, Dream of Desdemona, Ariane, the feeling begins, Salome, Rachmaninov, Romanza, Scheherazade- they all are true diamonds to me.
Cohen – amazing SP and ex ;)
Asada – all exhibition programs since 2007/8
Kim- Short programs
Alena Leonova – FS to “ The Witches of Eastwick”
Lepisto - last year FS
Joubert- Matrix, Metallica, rise, malaguena, James Bond

When it's about interesting choreography, I think of Jeremy Abbott, Joannie Rochette, Stephane Lambiel...
Patrick Chan has interesting choreo, but I'm not fond of his interpretation. ;)
Torvill-Dean - this is icons in ice dance choreo.
Takahashi - Black Swan

Ice Dance:I don't really care
Pairs:Abitbol & Bernadis
Savchenko & Szolkowy
Women:Amber Corwin :)
Carolina Kostner :) :)
Angela Nikodinov :inavoid:
Men:Ilia Klimkin - Out of all of these, Klimkin's my favorite. Not always a fan of his music choices, though.
Stefan Lindemann - but I don't really care for his skating

I personally look for difficult composition in terms of how and where the elements are all placed throughout the program and the extent to which they're interconnected to one another (in addition to how they're timed to the music and how they express the character of the program)
Torvill & Dean (unmatched team)
Klimova & Ponomarenko (astonishing technical abilities, they could handle such challenging choreography with amazing ease)
Grishuk & Platov (love their choreography during their Dubova and Tarasova days, not so much during their Linichuk/Karponosov days)
ETA - Virtue & Moir: they can handle very challenging choreography with a lot of ease, especially for a team so young
ETA - Denkova & Staviski: during their earlier days, their programs perhaps not the most difficult but they had such a fascinating avant-garde feel and look to them

I agree with many of those listed above. No need to repeat. Unless people want to post links to well-choreographed programs and some skaters have many worth posting.
I'll name a few who haven't been mentioned yet:
