:confused: According to Oxford dictionary: definition of "dress" includes: clothing of a specified kind for men or women.

I know the definition, but it still sounds funny... :lol:

:confused: You're saying that like it's something novel and unique. A lot of people's costumes are based on their music.

Yes, and a lot of skaters have costumes that have nothing to do with the music. Of course with some music one can have what ever costume that feels comfortable.

Evan could create quite a stir if he would skate Adam (maybe to Toshiro Mayuzumi's film theme "Creation of Adam") dressed in a flesh colored body stocking with fig leaf and vines
appropriately placed. There are so many interesting things skaters could be doing, but many continue to do the same old worn out war horses year after year. Even though I love much of that music, the repetitiveness got boring a long time ago.

What the heck, why not skate to the soundtrack for The Ten Commandments? :eek::eek:

I'd like him to skate to Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries". Big music, done, but not overdone.

And throw stone tablets at the Tech Panel if there are any downgrades! :rofl:

Musically, that's really not a bad idea. Sartorially, don't know how a breastplate and horned helmet would work as a skating costume. :yikes:

Very briefly, earlier in the day. He seemed a bit tired & preoccupied with his plans for the day, so I just said hi and asked about his training. Nice guy, talented and very, very handsome! The other people at our dinner table watched him practice and said they did not notice any effects of an injury. I hope it was just "normal" training aches & pains.

Once again, thank you for sharing your impression. :swoon: Met him briefly earlier this year, and I felt the same, very nice & talented guy, so down-to-earth, and super handsome!

Ditto. I also want him to skate to something really epic/grand/heroic (but not overused) for free skate. Movie soundtracks by John Williams would also be great.

I wonder if Evan will get his DWTS choreographer to help with either of his programs

Hope so. I really like his "Climb", the choreography is very fresh and beautiful, and he skates to it with so much fluidity, grace and passion.

My friend who's a professional dancer went to SOI with me, she was really impressed with Evan's elegant arm movement and posture, and he certainly can dance too. :swoon:

Posted this in the other Evan's thread, but think it's worth being discussed more in GSD than the TC :lol:. It was the first interview he took since the GP assignments were announced.

As many people suspected, he may convert Tango into a competitive number. Is there a version of Roxanne without the vocal part?


The second program he will skate will be a tango that he's thinking of converting into a short program for competition.

A tango is great music for him!

Each to herhis own, I suppose. 'Elegant' is not I word I associate with Evan. Clean, sure and aggressive, yes, but never elegant. In fact, I find his arm movement's particularly inelegant.

I just hope Evan skates to something dramatic for his long. Carmen is my favorite of his, but I want more drama this time.

Very nice, thank you! Is there any specific music you want Evan to skate to?

Japanfan, never say never, people are constantly changing with time, some regressed, some improved. Once a technician doesn't mean he'll never get artistry. Try to look through fresh eyes, you may find a difference. ;)

All of the DWTS judges praised highly of Evan's elegance and fluidity on dance floor, his beautiful arm movements and impeccable lines and posture, it's not just my friend. I do think DWTS has made a significant and very positive influence on his artistry and music interpretation on ice. That's the reason I'm eager to see his comeback to competitive skating, regardless of the results. :swoon:

Spartacus, I have no doubt Evan can handle epic and dramatic music very well, but I want him to skate to something more sophisticated and subtle this time, with more varieties, layers and aspects, not something dramatic and intensive all the way, like Tosca. :slinkaway
