    I've been a couple times, and really loved each of the shows I've attended. Nice mix of headline skaters and kids and adult skaters who want to help support a great cause - often a cause that is very personal to the skaters. The group numbers for the non-elite skaters are well organized and are very sweet. It's great to see so many skaters return for this show even when they're not otherwise competing.

    I wondered what she was up to. Does she have a job lined up now that she graduated and said it may be the last time she performs? Hard to believe there is just no male ice dancer available to make an arrangement with. Nice to see Rachel has kept at it as well.

    It does look cool, I like how she manages to keep the flow during the move, Max must be a relatively light fellow. Where's Paul anyway?
