2001 SP (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sO43UvmuKI) and 2000 LP (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iom16VT9uM&feature=related) :swoon:

Thanks for the great links everyone. Some of my favourite skates have already been mentioned. I'll just add a few:

Yuka Sato - Sozo [this isn't the performance I have of that program though]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2B210WOVATE

Tania Szewczenko - 1995 Nations Cup Crazy for You [too bad she dropped it after Euros]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQvYnKhXWTI

Michelle Kwan - 1996 Ultimate Four sp:

[I love her lp performance here as well, but it isn't on YouTube]

Woetzel/Steuer 1998 LP and SP:

Tara Lipinski - 2002 Ice Wars Paint it Black [I liked both her performances here, but can't find the other on YouTube]:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdrUeBVyOwM

Oksana Baiul 1998 - Safe from Harm:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFB0xs8wMJU

Sylvio Smalun - 2006 LP:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sek1Q3yz-k

Fleur Maxwell - 2010 Nothing else matters [this isn't the exact performance I saw though, I have her Oberstdorf gala skate, but can't find that one]:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEiltOwlt7Y

Christopher Bowman - Woolly Bully [I was looking for another performance actually, the one I have is What a wonderful world, he changes his outfit and then skates to Woolly Bully, or perhaps it was the other way around, anyway, you get the point]:

Josef Sabovcik has some great pro routines which I can't find on YouTube. They're all amazing, but this is one of few available:

To me what people like Sabovcik do is as much art as what someone like Cranston or Curry (some of my all time favorites) did. I'm sure there are many more amazing programs from great skaters which we're all not remembering right now.

I agree... whenever he's in the lineup I know I'm going to see consistently strong programs.

:lol: :lol: Thanks sadya for that link to Christopher's Woolly Bully performance. I'd definitely forgotten about that. So funny that look on Jill Trenary's face, watching. :)

Bowman's Maria is classic. I remember it well. Thanks skatesindreams!

Check out the link to Wiwa earlier in this thread. He does both solo and ensemble skating in that show.

Twilight, Thanks for posting Candeloro's 1993 Conan. I saw the 1992 version, where he had these enormous jumps and crashed on nearly every one. I often wondered what this program would look like well executed!

Philippe was so great to see live. I went to the first Elvis Tour and saw 'Rocky' and it was so fun to watch But I always thought his Conan LP was better than his 'Godfather' one. Candeloro is definitely one of my fave men skaters.

I am also beyond thrilled that I got to see 'Reverie' by G&G live in the 1993 CSOI tour.

You saw G&G live? Lucky you!

I was blessed to see them live, several times.
Most notably in the 1994 COI/"Artistry on Ice" tour.

Their skating was magnificent; and their love for each other was beautiful to see.

Let's make a collection of figure skating programs that aspire to artistic coherence rather than being primarily competitive vehicles (although they may be used in competition, especially pro competitions) or mass entertainment.

Post your favorites!



THIS. THIS is superb, amazing, everything you could possibly want in a program:

ITA, LadyNit!
One of the few times when art and technique have merged to the point that you forget that this is a program done in competition.
