    Excellent casting. A must-see show of the year!


    I wonder if they will take it to the US as they did last year.

    But Florent is totally entertaining in the right setting.

    So I guess Yuna managed to get hold of both European Champions this year Sarah and Florent! As well one of my all time fav legends - the beautiful Irina... wonder if they met in Moscow?

    Good to see more European flavours this time round :)

    If she can somehow get Tovill and Dean, then my skating fanning is complete! :D

    Why :rolleyes: ? He's the European champion and his skating is best suited for shows, I don't understand why you think it's strange :confused:

    Don´t be offended.
    I was just a little surprised to hear he was invited.
    I guessed that Brian Joubert is 'the one'. Not Florent Amodio.
    My guess was totally wrong.
    That's why i was surprised. That's all. :)

    Joubert did ATS spring, and ATS summer 2010, and was in Festa before that. Maybe they're trying to bring in some new skaters - I don't see too many skaters from the spring cast on the list. Or maybe he just couldn't make it this time; he still needs to prep for next season and take care of his knee, after all.

    Amodio is a very good show skater, it's really a better fit for him than competitive skating, IMO. He'll be a great addition to the cast.

    Maybe Brian love him so much, he just gave him his spot?
    You have heard about the real 'Bromance' between them right?
    Oh those French guys, gotta love them :)

    Who knows?? :rollin:
    Anyway, it's good for him (Amodio).



    That's very sweet.
    Brian looks like his big brother. :)

    Thank you so much for posting it.

    Lots of Canadian skaters this time! :swoon:
    Welcome all the skaters and hope you all enjoy the shows.

    And Yay for Olympic Gymnastics Stadium in Seoul. :cheer: Short enough to walk.

    The matter is how to buy tix.

    No Michelle?:wuzrobbed

    Well, I'll just say the level of excitement from my end is about 80% less than what it was last year. Without Michelle, I have no reason to mark this date on my calendar. It'd be nice to see Kurt and Irina skate, but I doubt if I'll be searching the web for streaming sites or looking for pictures, updates, etc. Being that I'm not that into exhibition shows to begin with, I'll just watch their performances on YouTube and that will be it...

    Now who she should try to get next year is Oksana Baiul, Chen Lu, or Kristi Yamaguchi...I'd be excited to see them...

    Given that Michelle seems busy with her diplomatic duties and washington stuff this year long, maybe this summer she could get some rest from skating and focus more on this incredible second chapter of her life.

    But HOPEFULLY she could make appearance at ATS LA this year?! I'd really loooooooooooove that. (for ATS LA to be held, and for Michelle to skate at the show!!)
    it'd be really cool if Yuna could bring these legendary ladies :)

    I'd love to see Michelle do a routine with Irina ... maybe, to "Old Friends"? or "Bosom Buddies"? Or, could this be done when both Michelle and Irina are inducted into the World Figure Skating HOF?

    Um, Kurt tweets at @KurtBrowning. @KurtFiles is me.

    Geoffrey Tyler is Kurt's good friend who helped create and choreograph his "Steppin' Out" program, and who recorded the vocals for the song. He's also a Toronto-based singer, dancer, and actor, who starred in "Peter Pan" with Kurt back in 2007. He sang live while Kurt skated in Stars on Ice this year at the Boston, Washington DC, Cleveland, Rochester, and Toronto shows. He actually did an in-depth interview with me earlier this year about working with Kurt on the program, if you're interested: Steppin' Out with Geoffrey Tyler

    He's a really nice guy and sounds great in person, and it's kind of fun having both co-creators of the program on the ice together, IMO.
