:( I thought Hawayek/Bramante had such promise.

He was always just a temporary partner for her on the way up, hate to say it...

^^ This. Any chance of Hawayak/Baker??? That would be amazing!

I've heard that it may be the case and Hawayak is moving to where Baker trains... :sekret: I too think they'll look great together!

She should be snatched up right away.

He's a good skater, but I'm really surprised he's continuing on. Best of luck to him.

Charlotte is pretty good but Lori Bonacorsi is probably better and she's smaller so would have more luck finding a partner as she has a broader size range that would be suitable.

As for Dean he'd need a very small ice dance partner ideally. Usually, female ice dancers are tall by skating standards. Maia, Meryl, and Elena are some of the smallest girls competing now, and even they are around 5'3 or 5'4, which is probably the tallest Dean could partner without looking mismatched IMO. Bonacorsi is in this height range and could actually be a feasible match.

Jean-Luc Baker, whose partnership with Joylyn Yang ended when Yang was forced to retire due to injury, has teamed with Kaitlin Hawayek. Like Olson & Hubbell, they will also train in Detroit.
Kaitlin Hawayek/Michael Bramante's names were recently removed from USFS' International Selection Pool.

Not a split but a coaching change since Nationals: twins Danielle & Alexander Gamelin (12th in Junior Dance; aged out of ISU Junior events) have moved from the University of Delaware to Wheaton, Maryland: http://www.wisa.us/skaters.html

Naah, they'll be training in Detroit :( From the Pairs/Dance splits thread in GSD:

New article from ice-dance.com with some partner updates. http://www.ice-dance.com/features/around-the-world-of-ice-dance/1351-around-the-world-of-ice-dance-blog-4

From that:

Jean-Luc Baker, whose partnership with Joylyn Yang ended when Yang was forced to retire due to injury, has teamed with Kaitlin Hawayek. Like Olson & Hubbell, they will also train in Detroit.
I'm a little sad that Baker won't stay in Seattle, though I can understand going to Detroit. I loved that Baker/Yang had a unique look and approach--which I (perhaps incorrectly?)--attribute to their being coached by his mom & dad. Hope that the new partnership works out very well! And wishing Joylyn Yang the best with her back.

I know nothing about Hawayek. Vid links, anyone?

Posted in the "Pairs/Dance splits 2012 season" thread in GSD:

Jeandel/Dodge have broken up. She is quiting and he is partner searching
Cassandra Jeandell & Damian Dodge were 11th in Junior Dance at 2012 US Nationals. I saw his name listed on icepartnersearch.com recently but he is no longer listed now.

It is my understanding that Jean-Luc Baker's primary coach and choreographer in Seattle was his mother Sharon Jones Baker (the 1985-1988 British ice dance champion with Paul Askham), with coaching assistance from his father, Steve Baker.


Hope that the new partnership works out very well! And wishing Joylyn Yang the best with her back.
I heard that that Joylyn Yang skated with Jean-Luc Baker in the Seattle Skating Club's 75th Anniversary Show last month and seems to be mostly healed :cheer: though she reportedly has no plans to continue competing.

Has anyone heard if either Jordan Cowan or Travis Mager have found a partner?

I believe he is now skating with Julia Biechler, she and her former partner, Sasha Petrov, were second at Jr. Nationals for Intermediate.

I take an ice dance class during the winter at a seasonal rink with Damian as the coach (he's a very good instructor, by the way), and he confirmed that he is skating with Julia and is happy to publicly announce this. Seems they clicked nicely and are excited and really looking forward to the future. I wish them the best and much success, Damian is a total sweetheart. :cool::cheer2::encore:
