Any falls in Anaheim?

Nope. Everyone did well.

I LOVED, and I mean LOVED the clown program with Sasha, Kurt, and Todd. So, so cute.

They probably didn't point out Ina & Zimmerman b/c they're current cast members, not past members =). They're doing the 6 shows Sale & Pelletier are not: Providence, RI, Boston, MA, Rochester, NY, Washington, DC, Portland, ME, Bridgeport, CT

Glad they had no falls this time. :)

Did you see the mystery woman in the beginning of Evan's Tango? Did you get why she was there? I sure didn't.

I didn't notice her. Doesn't mean she wasn't there, though -- just that when Evan's doing a program, I get tunnel vision. :swoon:

I was at the Anaheim show tonight as well. Also in the audience, but they didn't announce them, were John Zimmerman and Kyoko Ina. They were sitting with Renee Rocca. At intermission John had to show his ID to some personnel woman to get through the tunnel to backstage. (my God, just let this guy in, I mean, take a good look, honey). Tara got in with just a word, no ID.

Great show! Everybody was on. Kurt is still the master; Evan was very musical; Sasha did well; Katia was hot--and here she has a daughter graduating from high school; Jamie Sale is in phenomenal shape. I definitely got my money's worth.

Nooooo :drama:
I was in Anaheim too and i didnt see him :(

I didn't see a "mystery women" during Evan's program either.

No falls. Some popped jumps though (Joannie popped her first salchow to a single in solidarity with the 4CC Canadian ladies :P, but she landed all her other jumps very well last night) and there were some stepped out of jumps.

When they pushed the box out in the clown/tramp number - I thought that's so tiny. I knew Sasha was in there (having seen the TV airing), but I couldn't believe she still fit in there!

I think there was a picture of Cohen curled up in a roller bag once...she's pretty small, y'know...

Sasha's also very flexible, I'm sure that helps her fit in the box:D She also has a balloon in there with her.

Re: Ina and Zimmerman being in Anaheim, I would guess they are there rehearsing with the cast and learning the parts they will be taking over for S&P. I am looking forward to seeing them skate together again in Boston!!

First of all, I was blown away by the amazing skating of Katia Gordeeva. I would say she is the best skater I've ever seen. Her stroking is so smooth and effortless and powerful, I could just watch her stroke around the ice.

Everyone is in amazing shape. Sasha has gained the much needed weight since 2020 Nationals and is looking healthy.

Gordeeva has the best stroking of any skater I've ever seen, either. Effortless and powerful, and fast. Like butter. I wish she could teach that to others.

So how was 2020 Nationals? ;)
