Domnina & Shabalin's number is fast enough to be done as a polka. It was so nice to see them on the ice again!

Yes, it's so nice to see him skate like his knee doesn't hurt anymore too! I'd imagine those quick steps in the beginning would be so painful otherwise.

It is still hard for me to process sometimes that D/W are now the "veterans" in the field, that the skaters like Domnina/Shabalin and Delobel/Schoenfelder who were around when D/W started as seniors aren't competing anymore.

Charlie chatting with his dad and niece after the DSC ice show. Several little girls in the cast asked if he would come and have his picture taken with them by their parents.

So cute…thanks for posting.
Do you happen to know if Meryl and Charlie performed their DF exhibition program for the event?

That's what happens when you watch skating long enough, lol! Wait until you've been watching it for over 30 years like me!

And yes, so nice to see Dom/Shabs skating...such a fun number and they looked great.

Can't wait to know what music M&C will be using for their programs this season. I hope all the drama at the rink has settled down and they can get to work. It still will be weird not to see them with Igor. The skating world is very close-knit and the drama certainly is not new. I can't help but laugh and groan at some of the rampant speculation over in the GSD thread (and the V/M thread). And of course, :rolleyes: at pani once again making Meryl the butt of her lame jokes. Nothing new there but it's so tiresome.

Should be a very exciting 2 years leading up to Olympics!

Funny that you mention that, Charlie's niece looks closer in age to the skaters in the second video. Time flies. :lol:

Thanks for the link!

BTW, I came across a video from long ago of Meryl and Charlie competing in 1998. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRgE3g5BagM&feature=plcp

Beyond precious! :D

Which is why I'm entirely thankful that you showed me how to use the ignore function.

It looks like it was the Die Fledermaus exhibition for the DSC show!

Charlie's in his summer length haircut, though.

I hope someone will write a report.

This montage that came up this week is fun, I thought:

And do any of you know who the "O.Morgan" is who is listed as one of Meryl & Charlie's coaches? O. Morgan is not listed for Chock/Bates, Virtue/Moir, Shibutanis, or Tobias/Stagniunas, or Lichtman/Copely.

You're referring to Davis/White's ISU bio (http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00006260.htm), right? Olena Morgan is currently listed among the coaches in the Shibutanis' (but not in Davis/White's) Team USA bio: http://web.icenetwork.com/skaters/detail.jsp?id=38026&mode=P
She's from Ukraine and "has trained students in the Vaganova ballet technique and character dance for over 20 years" according to: http://www.thesportsclubs.com/novi_dance.asp

ETA: Lichtman/Copely's Team USA bio lists an "Olena Martin" -- must be a typo.

Yes, I'm referring to the ISU bios.

So...who is Olena Morgan, and what is her area of specialty?

Also, other than Tango, which programs of Meryl & Charlie's were Igor's choreo?

Also, other than Tango, which programs of Meryl & Charlie's were Igor's choreo?I believe Igor choreographed most, if not all, of D/W's exhibition programs. I always thought their competitive programs were collaborations between both coaches, no matter who initially found the music. I do believe, though, that Marina did more of DF than Igor.

Thanks, Doris! I like Meryl's hair in the lower bun/chignon as well as the high bun she wore at SOI in Toronto. Her hair was also a beautiful reddish-brown, and the spotlight really picked up on the red undertones. I wonder if she kept this colour. I am so glad they made DF into a show number as they have done such a beautiful job with that FD. You can tell they love it, and their feet just sing in that program. I really hope we get video of DF at the DSC show soon!

and I also hope we get word on their music selections soon. I like the country polkas, but I don't want them to do one if the judges aren't too fond of that style.
