Watching the SP from GPF, it is the most blah, empty thing I've seen in a long time. Who choreo'd that? The FS last year was pretty good but in general I think she needs to get more creative with it...

Interesting that you should say that. I was so impressed with Camerlengo's choreography for her LP last year. IMO, the problem is that there's not enough tension in either of her programs this year and the choreography is reflective of that.

I'm on the fence right now. There's too much other choreography that he has done that I like

I'm not a fan of her programs this year at all. I loved her LP from last season, but the programs she has this season just never build.

Morozov?
I always wondered how she'd look blond.

She is lovely, but her programs are so bland. She must get them from the V/M choreography catalog... :blah:

She needs to have a good jumping technique. But now, I guess it's too late.
She is so beautiful, I hope she'll have good days when it'll count the most. :)

She just needs to lose the tinkly-soft themes and music. True champs need oomph, not tinkly. She's so boring because she's always trying to be the pweety ballerini.

Yes ! I remember this very good SP to Jesse Cook's music in 2005-2006 !

I can't tell you a thing about Alissa's programs because they make me fall asleep halfway through.

I love Alissa's style and classic elegance, but the pretty, soft programs do get a bit stale. It would be great to see something new from her next season.

I'm tired of Alissa always picking slow and pretty music for the SP. I don't think footwork done to slow music should get the same component scores as those done to fast music, since it's easier to do slow footwork to match the slow music.

Last year's LP was refreshing. This year's programs not so much.

Great, let's kill variety even more. No slow music choices allowed! :soapbox:

The real problem, IMO, is not the music, but the fact that there's nothing in between the elements. That, plus all of the jumps are awkward, tentative, small, and poorly landed -- all of which slow down the program even more.

Alissa is an elegant skater, but the overall effect of her skating is, to me, quite juniorish even though she has been a senior for, what, ten-plus years now?
