    I posted a video link to Wesley Campbell's new "Bolero" SP as performed at this past weekend's Colonial FSC show in the Club & Benefit Shows thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3567027&postcount=42

    That wiki information is not correct.
    Kanako's SP was made by her coach Mihoko Higuchi.
    Tarasova made SP for Kanako last summer, but Kanako did not skate it.

    I don't know, I thought the "Ladies in Lavender" SP was really nice.

    Nice. That's a signature program, glad she is keeping it.

    Morricone has an astounding library of film scores. Many styles in one composer.

    Almost can't go wrong with him. "L'Arena" was a strong SP for a gorgeous US pair a few years ago - cannot recall names, they won the national title but had trouble with injuries.

    Brooke Castile and Ben Okolski - it was their SP in the 2007-08 season.

    International Figure Skating's Facebook page mentioned last week that "Daisuke Murakami and Kiira Korpi are also in Toronto this week working on new programs."

    Artur Gachinski and Liza Tuktamysheva are scheduled to fly to Canada on May 13 to have programs choreographed by David Wilson in Toronto - link to the earlier thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=83478

    I'm wondering if he'll use the Vitamin String Quartet version. I think it's :swoon:.

    I wonder which song.. it's polka.. 'The Lonely Goatherd?' I liked the Duschesnays' 1992 OSP to that.

    I adored his Charlie Chaplin program and think it really was his best program since Super Mario Bros. (lol, loved that one). Chaplin really worked for him.

    Speaking of Charlie Chaplin, I want someone to skate to the score for the awesome silent film that is The Artist. Most specifically, to the music from the movie's big dance number. Lots of amazing music in the movie (hence the reason it won the Oscar for best score).

    Dammit, whenever I go to that clip I have to rewatch it multiple times because I adore Jean Dujardin so damn much.

    I listened to several (but not all) of the tracks form this Score on youtube, and this track -- The Legend of the Pianist -- seems like an obvious choice for them as well from Morricone's "The Legend of 1900" score.:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcofLYYH1yY&feature=related .

    There's a lot going on with the score across different tracks... so it'll be very interesting to see what is peiced together for Paul/Islam. But the track above I can see really helping to showcase their line, stretch, and relationship to each other.

    There's a clearer - less obstructed - video of this program to date at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLefuG8LQC4 as well. Robert Mauti mentioned on facebook he created the program to meet the second week challenge of the "Young Artist Showcase" -- so this is in the choreography focused stage and not for competition -- but Wesley/coach liked it so much it will be worked into his IJS short program.

    Rochelle, thanks for posting the link to Robert Mauti's YAS3 video tribute to Alvin Ailey (Wesley Campbell's "Bolero" SP) -- the link is cross-posted in the Young Artists Showcase thread in GSD (post #12).

    Tiffany Vise ‏( @icetiff ) tweeted on May 13:
    I forgot to mention earlier that Richard Dornbush had tweeted on April 3, 2012:
    I assume he was referring to his new SP choreographed to U2's "With Or Without You."

    New interview titled "Creating programs: Hugo Chouinard talks music": http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20120515&content_id=31327706&vkey=ice_news
    Chouinard was involved in Weaver/Poje's "Je Suis Malade" FD, Daisuke Takahashi's short program, Virtue/Moir's "Funny Face" FD, and Takahashi/Tran's "Concerto de Québec" FS, among other programs.

    Now that's an intriguing choice of choreographer for Rippon -- Michael Seibert is a former Stars on Ice tour choreographer and a 5-time U.S. National ice dance champion with Judy Blumberg.

    ETA: @dscclub also tweeted today that Denney/Coughlin are visiting Detroit Skating Club this week to work with choreographer Pasquale Camerlengo.

    Joshua Farris is keeping his Rachimanoff long program :swoon::swoon: but getting a new short. No details on music for that one.


    a;'erlfnb;alerbae;lbna;erlknjb a he replied to my tweet. And he said thank you. And put a cute little smiley. I am so officially his fangirl now.

    I've always liked his choreography. I'm excited to see what he'll come up with for Adam. I'd love it if Michael Seibert had a chance to choreograph for an ice dance team since that's his own genre.

    I haven't heard any news about Seibert in a long time. Anyone know what he's been up to?

    I googled him and came up with several Michael Seiberts: a German canoer, a voice-over artist, and a convicted killer. Not much on Michael Seibert, the figure skater.

    Haha, good to hear. The FS was a good vehicle for him and I'm looking forward to see what he can do with it with another season of mileage. Though I will miss that lovely SP of his! Any news regarding senior GP vs. JGP? I'm really curious as to what he and Jason will decide! If they are aiming for 2014, I would assume they'd be moving up, but you never know, especially with the rule changes and all.

    Michael Seibert & Judy Blumberg ice dancers.

    should be your search (about 33,000 hits)

    People have trouble spelling Michael's name (i before e...NOT in this case)

    He also did choreo for Battle of the Blades

    FYI, there are article and video links posted in the Michael Seibert thread started in the Trash Can: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=83667

    I don't think so.

    Jonathan Cassar ( @Jonnaye05 ) tweeted on May 13:
    It sounds like he is going to work with David Wilson again. In late March, Wilson choreographed a Senior FS to Samuel Barber's "Cello Concerto in A minor" for Timothy Koleto (6th in Junior Men at 2012 US Nationals), as reported in Sarah and Drew's Inside Edge blog dated 4/11/12.

    I wasn't game enough to ask about JGP/GP after he replied to the first one! :lol: I've asked him (today, so that I don't look like a creepy stalker :D) about the SP music but I figure there's no point asking about the GP assignments since they come out on Monday anyway.

    Found this icenetwork article on Michael Seibert (http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20111101&content_id=25856874&vkey=ice_news) that provides the answer to my question...

    I hope working with Adam will lead him back into more choreography for competitive skaters. :D Blumberg and Seibert was one of my favorite ice dance teams back in the day.

    Also, this one about starting his interior design career (http://www.interiordesign.net/article/481246-The_Desert_Blooms.php#).

    Adam Rippon tweeted:

    Seibert designed costumes earlier in his career, including for him and Blumberg. There was a fluff piece about it during one of his competitions, I think on ABC.

    Thanks!

    One of things I like about Adam is that he keeps trying to find and adventure new style. Whether that style suits him or not does come into question, though:rolleyes:

    Daisuke is so cool. I can't think of another skater of his calibre whom consistently seeks out new choreographers, different types of music, and new ways to express himself. EVERY single year. He seems to be an artist who is curious, which the best kinds of artists are. Just what a cool guy.
