I was super impressed with Miyahara's SP. And ITA with ferania about the amount of transitions in her programs. She has great skating skills and is one of those few skaters that can handle non-stop changes of edges in the step sequences with ease. I also think she moves really well to the music for her age and has a spark depite being rough around the edges. I really like her relaxed shoulders and the ease she skates with. She seems to be using the entire body during her steps without over doing it and has a wide range movement compared to others. I see that as great potential to handle very interesting and dynamic choreography in the future. I think a lot of people are being overly critical of her "junvenile" presentation just because she looks about 8. But that doesn't mean she skates like she's 8.

I agree with everything you said. I really don't understand all this criticism of Miyahara--I think she's a really lovely skater!

Although I agree Miyahara has a lot of spark, I am not overly impressed with her. She doesn't have the elegance I see from Risa Shoji or Lipnitskaya. However, I also think she has potential, but for now, she seems pretty average to me.

Short Program "Scherherazade" desu.

Short program "Scherherazade" desu.

Since some years ago, whenever I went to Tatiana-sensei, (this piece) was on her list of music. I thought it was a kawaii* Scherherazade.

The music has a variety of tones so I want to show a variety of expressions that fits throughout this program.

*kawaii is the Japanese word for cute, but it also has other meanings too... lovely, charming, pretty... don't get too caught up in what the word "cute" implies in English.

Try this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVP_XuXqWyk. :)

thanks but this one does not work either. :(
It is the music that is blocked in Germany via youtube.

If someone is able to upload it to another server and give me the link I would be forever grateful. :shuffle:

whee, and now I can join the love!!

She is really expressive and musical for a 13-year-old! Cannot wait to see what will become of her in a couple of years! :inavoid:

And she had already more transitions in this one program than Ksenia Makarova had in all her programs put together. :shuffle:

I agree she's talented but I still prefer Risa personally. She has the technical goods, but there's also a lot more than that to her skating. I actually prefer Risa to Kanako too, but Kanako does seem to have come into her own this summer based on videos I've seen, so that opinion may change based on how she's skating this season and if she's finally dumped cutesy or not. Miyahara seems solely focused on jumps at this point.
