Sounds like a good show. Has Jonathan Cassar changed his mind about retiring?? Of course, I would love for him to continue :swoon:

Hope someone can give us reports, please!

If he had changed his mind about retiring then he would be listed in USFS' international Selection Pool (he's not), and he said back in February in this piece about his retirement (http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20130213&content_id=41596906&vkey=ice_news) (scroll down):

Cassar plans to stay in the sport, as a coach and choreographer; he would also like to skate in shows.

"I've started to choreograph quite a bit," he said. "I feel almost more comfortable in these shoes than I do as a skater. The more that I teach, the more programs I've done; I feel really excited every time I do it.

"Sometimes, you know exactly what you're going to do, and I feel like this is what I'll spend the rest of my skating life doing: teaching and choreographing."

Hope someone can give us reports, please!
I hope so, too!

Thanks Sylvia, for the clarifications. I forgot that Jonathan mentioned doing shows after retiring from competitive skating.

Hoping for reports and maybe a fancam video (though I'm sure those are discouraged).

I haven't been able to find out much info... only that Cassar was not there, Courtney Hicks and Leah Keiser skated new show programs, and Caroline Zhang and Philip Warren both "were good" and also skated show programs.
