I'd love to see a different style on B/S.

I just realized I've never seen "La Strada" and need to put in on my DVD request list.

It is one of my favorite movies ever! The funny thing is I always imagined this music either skated to by a singles skater (which Takahashi did wonderfully) or by a lion and flea type pairs team(K&S?). The main characters are Zampano -a Circus Strongman and Gelsomina, an childlike woman, with a clown/fool thrown in for good measure.
I absolutely cannot imagine that D&W will do anything that relates to the story or any choreography that adheres to the theme of the music in any way

I agree and thanks for posting the program.

Oh, the drama. Someday I hope that a skater or a team announces that they're skating to John Cage's 4'33", just to REALLY blow everyone's mind. :D

I think Rodnina already did to part of it!!!!

That stated, watching a performance by an orchestra of that piece was one of the most hysterically funny things I've ever seeen.

Someone posted on GoldenSkate that Gachinski's program was "Fahrenheit 451" and "Interview with a vampire"?

Well, P/B never started to entertain, so they couldn't really cease that, now could they?

You just have bad taste. :P

P/B brought freakin' DJ Shadow to figure skating!


:confused: What?? Her playful, light quality is why the Bollywood OD was a major success. She's got a great elvish, mischievous quality to her such that whenever a program takes advantage of it, the programs work really well for them.

She's barely present. She's got this vague smile but that seems set in stone and she doesn't seem to be able to relate neither to the partner nor to the audience. She just seems shy and not very comfortable on the ice.

It can definitely work for some programs but La Strada music requires you to be much less subtle than that.

To be fair that could be said about many pairs and dancers. I don't think she is the first skater to comes to mind, I rather enjoy her.

That's the aftertaste :lol:

I actually wish I liked them more. Natalie is easily the most charismatic female ice dancer out there and Fabian is sex on a stick. But I just don't warm to their programs.

Okay, is there another Meryl Davis who skates? Because I'm pretty sure we're not thinking of the same one.

I thought Meryl & Charlie were skating to selections from The King's Speech. When was La Strada announced?

Actually, as far as I know, we discussed this on the D/W thread as music we would like to see them skate to but I don't think there was ever a rumor that they were considering it.
