http://www.televesti.ru/priglashenie/16749-22-i-23-dekabrya-lednikovyj-period.htmlOn December 22 and 23, not 24 :). Thank you anyway - those are really good news. I knew abou the show, just didn't know how soon the shootings will start. We thought that probably it's going to be sometime next year, so this is a good surprise :)!

Probably it will be broadcasted next year.I like the idea to make Ice Age only with skaters and the switching partners part. "Thin Ice" from last year was similar,interesting and fun to watch:).

Very cool. I liked "project bolero", but would rather see skaters actually skating. And at least now we know what Khoklova is going to be doing for the next few months

Small info after the first shootingsThank you very much, vivika1982 :). I really waited for some information. I was actually wondering about Yagudin - whether he was going to skate, and with whom. In truth, I think he could have done it. It would have been easier for him to skate with someone who can actually skate, than it was with unprofessional stars, whom he had to carry most of the time :D. But it will be interesting to see him as a host with Slutskaya. Also glad to know that Khokhlova and Novitski (yes, yes, Novitski, not Novikov :D) are taking part. It will be especially interesting to see Khokhlova in such a project. And also Domnina and Lang. But I am quite impatient to find out about the pairings.

Awesome!!! I've been wanting to see something like this for a while. I hope they do another season and add Krylova, Grishuk, Grushina, Anissina, Berezhnaya, Grebenkina, Obertas, Platov, Petukhov, Yagudin (I agree, he could do this), and I'd love to see Averbukh and Zhulin out on the ice too... there's so much potential since they don't have to skate with their original partners.

They can't just step on ice after years without active skating (or with no skating at all), and again be the great skaters that they were - it doesn't happen that way. Besides, most of them are busy with other things (like Krylova who is actively coaching now). And it's very possible that there won't be another season - Averbukh has said for several times now that he doesn't want to do shows that are not something new anymore, because otherwise he is bored. So, I think that this is probably a conclusion to Averbukh's TV projects - at least for now. Maybe after a few seasons there will some new show.

It is Novikov and not Novitski the one skating with Yana.
I'm excited that at last we get an all skaters show and that the first show we'll the actual pairs and dance teams.It's going to be like a real ice show.And I'm absolutely in love with TotMar's Sneg.I watched it on Youtube from a show they performed it and it was beautiful.

Besides, most of them are busy with other things (like Krylova who is actively coaching now).

All of the skaters I mentioned, except Averbukh, have done reality shows within the past 5 years. Berezhnaya was on Battle of the Blades 2011 and is an excellent shape. Krylova skated in shows in 2010 with Goncharov. Anissina and Grushina have had babies, but then again so has Domnina even more recently.

I think you'd be pleasantly surprised seeing the skaters get themselves back in shape for these shows. Anna Semenovich skates well (for exhibition level, not competition level) after years of being a pop singer. Grishuk came back to the ice for DOI in 2006 and was in amazing shape despite not having skated in exhibitions for at least 5 years. Krylova had been off the ice for a long while too. Even Klimova & Ponomarenko did DOI in 2007 after years of retirement.

I don't know what exactly the format of this show will be, but I doubt we'll be seeing twists and jumps from all the pairs or CoP level twizzles and lifts from the ice dancers (thank God)... so IMO skaters who have been able to do exhibitions and skate with celebrities should be able to handle it. I was just listing skaters that I miss and would love to see in this format.... sure, my list was a bit whimsical, but not as completely unrealistic as you imply.


Actually, I think it is Novikov, not Novitski....

I hope so... I was excited to see his name there... you and I are probably the only ones rooting for the old truck driver. ;)

ETA: Just saw zotza's post... yay. :)

It is Novikov and not Novitski the one skating with Yana.You mean Vitali Novikov? I thought it was Novitski, since he took part in the last year's 'Ice and Fire' show (although he left it early). It means that two of the "original pairs" are actually just formal pairings - Lobacheva/Goncharov and Khokhlova/Novikov, as they haven't been skating together originally.
