I believe that in competition, the commentary is technically the "soundtrack" and the music essentially classified as background audio, so rights don't need to be secured for music in competition. In something like a CSOI broadcast, the music *is* the "soundtrack", so rights do need to be secured. Or something like that. :P Forgive me if that's not entirely correct, but I remember reading that (possibly even on FSU) as an explanation.

This is incorrect. There is a difference between rights for competitive programs and rights for things like Stars on Ice or televised skating specials. The rights for music for competitive programs is covered under the deal the federations have made for music rights. Show programs are not.

All of the instances cited as having rights problems have to do with televised shows which are not covered by the federations arrangements with SOCAN/ASCAP/BMI and other rights groups.

Many thanks for posting!

On first impression they skate quite a bit of it apart and there are more cross-overs than I'd expect from a team contending for top spots.

The Shibutani did much cross-overs last season, so maybe OK for top teams.

I think they missed the new "excessive nudity" rule :D

Or misread it to mean the more excessive the better.

Or that's an exhibition dress that she has no intention of wearing in competition, but that theory's no fun.

The Shibs had style, though, and edges that Cappelini can only dream of.

There have been plenty of pro numbers along those lines.

Don't make me search for Candeloro examples

The Short Dance: music is from the main theme from the movie 2046 and Havana Slide and was- choreographed by Romain Haguenauer.

The Free Dance is to Elton John's 'Tonight" and was put together by Kelly Johnson and David Wilson.

Thank you for posting!

I found this fascinating and had never heard of it before:


"At our rink, on any day when 2 skaters are at the rink skating by themselves, they get paired up and skate the exercises together." Alex continued by explaining that the rationale is there are things that skaters will notice while trying to adjust to a different skater that they wouldn't necessarily with their regular partner which results in an opportunity to fix things.

About their FD:


Mitch explains: "Basically we are a couple who have an abusive relationship. It is about her ability to forgive and also be drawn back to him." What excited me about their description was the fact that they also talked about the moments of hope built into the program and the exploration of a relationship. Sophisticated stuff.

Based on that description, I half expected their choreographers were any two contemporary choreographers from So You Think You Can Dance.

Moments of hope and forgiveness in an abusive relationship :scream:

Yeah, that caught my eye too. Hope the actual program comes across better than that description makes it sound . . . :slinkaway

Hey, at least its not the usual "two people in love" that comes up again and again in ice dance. I think these two are awesome, and I'm really intrigued to see how they handle the theme.

:lol:So far their programs have been sophisticated ..so I'm trusting that whoever used the word abusive..it's only in the most modern sense..( he refuses to go to a ballroom class with her , e.g...or won't help with the housework , or something..)

Actually ,I'm hoping the story will be more internal than external..
