It looked to me that they were doing the step-by-step tedious things. If they had done only big tricks -- dangerous with a stage on the ice -- they might be able to see where they had similarities and differences in technique and timing, but they wouldn't necessarily know how compatible they were in approaching the smaller things. A bit like an early date where you stand on line together in the rain for a couple of hours, instead of showing up all shiny and new.

The link at the beginning of the thread should no longer work; I removed the video and uploaded the same video with a tag crediting me (please do not remove, thank you.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_un1_OGBqE this is the new link, video may still be processing.

How fascinating to watch. Thanks ryanbfan. :)

Anyone know who the 'coach' is that we see them returning to at various points during the session? Is that David Kirby?

Thanks for the link. They look really good together.

I can't help wondering how both might feel about this video being posted.

They couldn't have been too concerned about privacy if they were trying out in the middle of a busy mall. I'm surprised they chose that location.

If it works out for them, I'm happy for them.

I think I could like them together (provided they actually team up). His lines aren't perfect, but it's a huge improvement on Coughlin.

where is Caitlin originally from
is she Polish ? ( Yankowski - Yankowska )

I believe Yankowskas is a Lithuanian name ...

ETA - I think I could like them as a pair. For the naysayers, keep in mind that they were stroking around a small mall rink with a stage in the middle and brand new to eachother. I say give them time (again, if meant to be). I find Josh is a slightly superior skater to John C., and Y/C ended up 6th in a highly competitive worlds competition

This tryout was inevitable, of course. The question is whether it will become a legitimate partnership.

As for whether they work together- obviously it's not going to be a finished product in just a few days. It's all about whether there's any potential, and whether the accommodations can be made long-term to make the partnership work. We'll have to see what happens. (If they DO pair up, I can only imagine the fan duel at next year's Nationals...)

This just makes my idea of velcro banners even more sensible!

It's way too early to tell, and we don't know if they will officially be a pair, but i actually thought they looked ok together. Ashley is built more like a dancer and Caitlyn is very balletic, but has a more athletic build - which seems to suit Josh's build better. They look more like a pair team. With Ashley, i thought it looked like a pairs/dance hybrid and their music choices always seemed to suit her and not so much him - at least this year.

This is kind of amusing... I found this on a Hunger Games website.

The situation got so out of hand in fact at Galleria Dallas on Thursday that a very noteworthy figure skating tryout was reduced to no audio on YouTube. Yes, a Hunger Games fan happened to spot Caitlin Yankowskas and Joshua Reagan testing our their pairs skills.

Except that's not why I muted the audio... lol.

Well if you train in a public place, it's fair game really.

^ This. Privacy is not a reasonable expectation in an open mall rink.

I disagree. I think if you are going to video tape someone, you need to ask permission first. It's common courtesy.
