Drobiazkov & Vanagas did the choreography for Mysliveckova & Novak. Could we see the Canton "kids" performing to this sort of program :biggrin:

Have seen it posted already, but let it stay: http://www.15min.lt/naujiena/sportas/ziemos-sportas/lietuvos-sokeju-ant-ledo-treneris-liko-ant-ledo-igoris-spilbandas-ismestas-is-arenos-295-224083

President of Lithuanian figure skating federation Lilija Vanagiene says


We are shocked. We knew that the coaches could not agree, but really did not expect that everything will happen this way. I still haven't spoken to Deividas. I do not know what our couple will do. In any case, it is very sad. Igor is a great professional, always tactful, correct. He believed in Deividas and Isabella, in their prospects. He worked hard with them.

She also added that M. Zoueva asked if Povilas Vanagas and Margarita Drobiazko would be interested in working in Detroit.

How much coaching experience do D&V have? It could be quite a bit, since they retired years ago, but I am not sure what level they coach. Do they live in Lithuania or the USA?

In Russia, in Moscow.
I a, not even sure they ever live in USA.

Thank you, Doris! :)

That is such a brilliant kitchen sink voidy program! :D

I wanna see more of their work, definitely! :biggrinbo

They choreographed and collaborated on a number of programs for championship level teams since retiring.

I'd love to see them in Canton but I have to say I am surprised that the Lithuanian Fed (run by Povilas' mother after all :P) didn't manage to get them to stay in Lithuania and develop an Ice Dance program there. :(

Alright, more thread drift, but that FD never gets talked about so..

IMO, that's not one of their more memorable FDs overall, but the slow section from 1:40 to 3:00 (http://youtu.be/j7c3qPnZb4U?t=1m40s) contains everything that makes me :swoon: over D&S's skating; the really controlled way their knees rise and fall, the power they get from each crossover, the way they fill ice surface and use the edges to weave back and forth using different holds, the almost hypnotic twizzle sequences and the steps coming out of it, etc.

Even though they were still young and unfinished there, everything that is special about the way D&S move really shows for me in that section, so good on Drob/Van for putting that together.

OMG that is one of the most WTF selections of music I think I have ever seen, purely for the fact that how can you pick 5-6 pieces of music that are so totally unrelated to each other and put them into a program. One of those programs that you would want to give a music deduction on, just for the simple fact that the selection made absolutely no sense and would piss me off. But that is not in the rules.

Are you sure? R. Sinicyn listed too. I remeber for sure they did "Chees" for them, but not THIS. This is not look in D-V style at all.

They were listed as the choreographers, along with Sinitsyn...perhaps M&N contributed themselves as well, but it's D&V's name on the ISU bio, poor souls.

Judging by the number of cuts, they all contributed and decided to take everybody's ideas simultaneously.

"Zoueva didn't approach us directly, she asked Lithuanian judge if we would like to join the team, so to speak. At the moment we don't think about coaching career at all, we continue skating. So we said right away, thank you, but no."

He said that he and his wife learned about the news just the day, or rather, a night before: "We don't know any details, of course, many people are upset about that, a conflict is a conflict."

Oh God, I knew Rita and Povilas loved to skate too much. If they became Meryl and Charlie's coaches, I'd literally die. Mostly because Povilas is among the best male ice dancers I've ever seen. Also, their IN skills were always awesome.I have no idea if they'd be capable of doing the choreo, but man, Povilas as Charlie's coach... I'd be in heaven.

Too bad they're still so much into skating themselves. But good for them, I guess.

"...a conflict is a conflict is a conflict."

;)

I don't speak French, but speak three other languages. How very unprofessional of Virtue and Moir. Surely, they need to speak French to get ahead in life. In fact, I'll move to France right away as that's the only way one could possibly learn French.

Anyway, if they aren't interested, who else are they considering asking to take the job? Marina didn't line up someone else before Igor was fired, which leads me to believe no one was expecting him to get fired. Whatever he did, it wasn't pretty.

No one was saying anything like that. It was asked wether they spoke French and if therefore going to Zazoui was a possibility.
some people thought they they probably would being Canadian (and I thought too that French was mandatory for all Canadians to learn in school, I am surprised).

So don't pretend that there is an attack on them if there isn't.
