Zombies are the new vampires. All the rage with the young ones ;)

It's "Ramalama (Bang Bang)". ;)


I heard Mao's Swan Lake is choreographed by Tarasova.

I am sort of curious - who choreographed Adelina Sotnikova's 07-08 Swan Lake?
Does anybody know?

Three guesses!

(Tarasova :P)

Looks like Tat has been taking Recycling tips from Morozov.
At least she is honest about it, even though she is surely turning into the female version of Lori Nichols from Russia :lol:

Tat did a memorable version for Sasha a while back, and of course there's the most memorable version by Baiul to compare with. It would be interesting to see how this latest version will rank among all the great swan lakes of the past. She couldn't have picked a better balletic skater to do this classic justice. I just hope it won't be ends up another happy and jolly white Swan like Mao's Scheherazade last year.

The Junior team, Lorraine McNamara & Quinn Carpenter, are doing a Zombie SD on the JGP circuit, to Ramalama bang bang for their SD.

Here they are at JGP Istanbul (caution: the rink acoustics at Istanbul are crappy)

I don't think copying is going on, just that it's a funny coincidence.

The acoustics were better in Courchevel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82qtei69fLg).

I skated to that music a few years ago, before I saw it from SYTYCD. Zombies was the last thing that came to my mind. Sorry but I do think there is some copying going on.

There was a french team that used it a few years ago too. They didn't do zombies.

I love Roisin Murphy. I think I have used about 3 of her songs for skating programs.

Mao had a kind of hard time with her sick mother and reconstructing her jumping technique. So she wanted to pick that kind of joyful and airy Scheherazade ver to look up. And I loved it.

BUT this season things have changed. So I think Mao and TAT picked traditional style of music.

Mao is a soooooo beautiful skater and I can't to see her graceful Swan Lake. Go Mao!! I love to see MAO'S SWAN LAKE.:saint:

Actually, the dance in 'SYSTYCD' was not zombies either. As I wrote, Averbukh first did a zombie themed choreo to 'Ramalama (Bang Bang)' (thanks, ziggy :)) in his 2009 show.

Blanc & Bouquet used Roisin Murphy, and yes, they did not think of Zombies.

OTOH, I don't know what made them think about carrying matching lunch sacks or coin purses (whatever those things hanging off their wrists are supposed to be).

It might be the part about "unzip my heart out" and "when you die you die" that makes people think OOOO great for Zombies.

I doubt McNamara / Carpenter copied Zhiganshina/Gaszi-they showed their Zombie SD at Lake Placid IDC quite a long time ago. They train at Wheaton Academy, which is not in the skating capital of the known world either. Z&G would not have been flying through and been seen doing their Zombies.

Now could Z&G have seen M&C? It doesn't seem likely that they were just combing the junior ranks of LPIDC looking for an FD concept. And the LPIDC videos aren't on youtube for Lorraine & Quinn, although they are for their 2 JGP events. But that would have been way too late for Z&G to start working on an FD.

So I'm figuring it's a very odd coincidence.

Perhaps both teams had seen Blanc & Bouquet's number.


Switching tracks

Duhamel & Radford's LP was filmed:

Does anyone recognize what MMM (miserable movie music) that is?

Eh, quoting myself again :
Averbukh originally did a choreography to 'Ramalama (Bang Bang)' for Albena Denkova and her partner in his 2009 'Ice Age' show (something like 'Skating with Stars'), then Denkova and Staviski had it as a exhibition piece. This year he reused it in the 'Ice Age: Cup of Professionals' show for Elena Leonova and Maxim Shabalin. As for 'Tore My Heart' that is used in the first part of the dance, in another Averbukh's show 'Ice and Fire' (skating and dancing) Yagudin and his partner had a dance (somewhat Tim Burton's 'Corpse Bride' themed :D) choreographed to it for them.So, that's where it came from in this particular case. Definitely not from M/C. And I remember reading that Averbukh did this choreo for Zhiganshina/Gazsi quite early. Yes, probably Averbukh had seen Blanc/Bouquet's dance when he first decided to choreograph to this music in his 2009 show.

As far as "Ramalama (Bang Bang)" goes -- I think it's coincidental that both teams are using it and using zombies, but I think M/C could very well have been inspired by SYTYCD. This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1g-kxL-OR74&feature=related) was the original dance from that show.

Which was done about 2005-2006 as it was from either season 1 or 2 I think. So the SYTYCD number has been around a while. Either way the concept has been done before.

Shen&Zhao did an ex to it - clearly inspired by the SYTYCD number. It was fabulous.
