    Evan's final pose was to die for! :swoon:

    Passion and speed yet there is a lightness in his skating that we have never seen before. His hand movements are much more improved.

    He really is a striking skater.

    So happy to see Evan's program again in shows! I love this Swan Lake, it's even better than I expected. I've been waiting for seeing how he improved/polished in artistry after DWTS. :D Loving his presence on ice. Hopefully we'll see him in more shows from now. :cheer:

    Someone tweeted that it seems like Kazakhstan TV will broadcast "Denis Ten & Friends" today. But I don't know how to see it. :shuffle:

    ETA:
    It seems the show was not aired in Kazakhstan yesterday(on Sunday). Any information about the broadcasting?

    I think this show had the full support from Kazakh government. Otherwise it must be difficult for Denis Ten himself to organize the cast. Skaters from all major skating powers are gathered except China. For Kazakhstan, China is a rival bidding for the 2022 Olympics. They probably wanted to appeal their skating fan bases to IOC and ISU, and it seems to be a success. Their chance of hosting the Olympics is getting better.

    Alexei Yagudin and Brian Joubert stayed on in Kazakhstan following the shows, and Joubert and Ten have been teaching a master class in Almaty (I'm not sure if Yagudin is still there too).

    I wouldn't read too much into the lack of Chinese skaters in the cast - I don't recall seeing them do a lot of shows outside China, regardless of location. I believe that Ten's show is sponsored by several government-affiliated bodies, but I don't see how inviting a bunch of skaters would help them make any inroads with the IOC.
