I think it would probably help a lot. Because there are spin doctors out there, maybe Stephane included, who whilst are natural spinners, also have tips and techniques that will help improve others. And it can be the tiniest thing but the skater may not have thought of it before.The thing is that Stephane has already worked with Daisuke on his 'Amelie' exhibition program choreography. Yes, they worked on it only for a short time, but I know that they also worked on spins, as Stephane has done with most (or even all) skaters for whom he choreographed. Of course, they could probably work some more just on spins - most likely it would be a small improvement, but an improvement nonetheless.

But it could mean that it increases his +GOE.

And his SP was just outstanding for musicality. Particularly in his straight line step sequence, where he stopped, moved his head and then continued. That tiny moment sucked me in totally. I have no idea why but it did.I commented on that same move in the PBP thread. It's just a brilliant choreographic detail - first he draws a loop on the ice with his feet (skate) and then he draws a loop in the air with his head. Mad props to Wilson for this program, but it takes and incredible skater to pull it off and Takahashi is more than up to the task.

ETA: For me, it was Takahashi's Bachelorette exhibition that proved his musicality and that he was far more than a "skate by numbers" talent.

http://www.japanskates.com/interviews/Daisuke/Daisuke_2011_Interview_en.htmThank you very much :). It's actually the first interview that I read from Daisuke in English. Mostly they are in Japanese (which I don't understand), and I hadn't seen such a lengthy interview translated in English until now. So, a huge thanks to whoever translated it! And, if there has been some interview translated in English before, I would be very thankful if someone could point me to it.

Yes, a great program, but also a bit similar in style to Daisuke's 'Black Swan' program (not just because of the costume :D).

Thanks for posting the interview, kittyjake5!

I love Dai's skating and his charm. Most of all I love the way he takes on the challenge to grow, and how he seeks out help from many (Olivier Schoenfelder, David Wilson, Pasquale, the Japanese ballet dancer whose name I can't recall, etc.) in the constant effort to get better. Even with the difficulty of translating what he said into English, Dai's descriptions about understanding his body more as he gets older, and the complications involved with that, is quite wonderful to read. I can feel Dai's embrace of all the challenges and difficulties, and most of all his love for skating.

IMHO, Dai being determined to stay and work hard in the eligible ranks through to Sochi (hope he makes the team) is very admirable -- and I feel through that effort and determination, he will deserve to be there more than a veteran who takes a few years off and then tries to come back just for Sochi.

Thank you so much for this interview. He's a very charming man.

I enjoy both of his programs so much this season, so much that I am hoping that he wins the world title this year. As much I respect Chan's skating, I just enjoy Dai's programs so much more. I appreciate the creativity and the musicality and the originality. He has chosen music that's not over-used and overdone.

"I made only one mistake (on the quad in the free program) and he made three on his jumps but I still wasn't able to beat him so that shows you I need to have more quality in my jumps," Takahashi told reporters Sunday.

It must be so frustrating for him to skate better than Patrick but still lose to him. I really hope he gets his quad back.

I like his attitude. He is not blaming anyone; he plans to improve his jumps. He is a true sport.

Note to Tak
1) skate your short better
2) up the difficulty in your free
Regardless of whether you actually accomplish either one or both, I still lurves to watch you.

Thank you I really enjoyed it, like this is the first time I was just so into watching him skate. Jumps were there, perfect and one of the hardest arsenal, 4t-3t, 3a, and 3lz, and he was really giving his energy and even "soul" to this performance.

I love that his attitude at recent interview was truthful and not of just a big talk. He took the risk when clearly he didn't have to and that's a quality worthy of champion. Wow. He really had me there with this performance!
