    They don't have an autograph session, but the skaters all hang out though during the show around the ice and in the lobby. They also have a group number for the guys (always funny) and a group number for all the ice dancers.

    Not confirmed on any skaters but Jeremy told me he is doing Fri-Sunday. It's mandatory for any skater who skates at DSC that is in town to do at least one show.
    I also updated my post, because DSC just put up the new website.

    Taka is skating Friday and Saturday also. DVDs are on sale for 55.00 right now and if you buy the DVD there is a 10.00 charge for 3 nights of webcast or 30.00 without the DVD. I might have some exciting news on special features of the DVD.

    Do you, or anyone, know whether Taka will be skating in both shows on Saturday, or just one of those two?

    Thanks!

    It doesn't. My company is doing the DVD/Webcast for the show and the show director emailed me to let me know Taka was skating Friday and Saturday. They have also added Katlyn and Jon-Luke and Mitch and Alex to the show. We have a need to know, for timing and blocking of the show.

    In case anyone isn't sure :), "Taka" = Kozuka (who is training at DSC now) and the 2 dance teams added to the show are Kaitlin Hawayek/Jean-Luc Baker (USA, returning to JGP) and Alexandra Paul/Mitchell Islam (CAN, received the Skate Canada GP host pick).

    There are still many good general seats available for Sat. night and Sun. afternoon shows. Ticket sales help to aid the skaters funding. There are also charity benefit tables available rinkside-and they include wine, dinner, and of course front row seating. Saturday's show will benefit Grace Centers of Hope and FAR.
    Come out and see some great skating!

    Thank you, Sylvia. Always you are the best!
    Kozuka doesn't look in good condition. I'm afraid his injury is still serious. Any reports are welcome. I'm so sad the streaming link doesn't work.:(

    Kozuka looked good to me Fri. night.
    Abbott too. But funny thing when he skated into the person "in the wings."

    Can anyone tell me which "name" skaters performed in first half hr. I got in late.
    (Think I missed at least one dance couple. And were Hubbell/Donohue there at all?)

    It's dismaying to see Kozuka falling on 2 of the 3 jumps in his program. . . earnestly hoping he's OK. He always had really impressive skating skills, and his artistry has developed nicely in the last few years. It was sad to see him struggle last season.

    Did the stream ever come through? I'm considering paying for it if I'm at home for tonight and tomorrow's performances, but I'm hoping to be certain that it will work before I do so.

    No, but a message said that it'd be on for Saturday. Apparently, once you pay you have access to the stream for a week. So I'm guessing even if not live, you can see the performances afterwards. They're testing the stream right now, and even though the sound is off, the video seems fine. Hopefully, it'll work tonight.

    Yes thanks for posting these, especially Kozuka. The rink looked SO very dark on vid for his skate plus the very bright spotlights made it look dangerous. I wonder if their lighting caused him to struggle with the jumps more? The vid was great quality so I don't know if that made the contrast look worse to me or not. I don't think they needed it so dark black in there and then the spotlight would be more blinding. Anyway I hope he is ok and I am looking forward to Jeremy's vid.
    That said, Marchei's lighting looked less contrasted, so maybe they either adjusted it or it was just the video.
    I wonder why the French dance team did not have to skate in the show since they were with Krylova until recently.

    Wow, thank you, tanithandBenFan. I'm so happy he looks OK. His skating skill and artistry is always impressive.

    I found some pictures of Alissa. So happy to see she is enjoying in Taipei. :) I really want to see the video of her performance.

    Yep, though there were some audio difficulties when Madison Hubbell was interviewing other skaters during intermission.

    Out of curiosity, is any or will any content be archived? I wasn't able to register until the midway point of the show and was wondering if I'd be able to view Act 1 at any point, or re-view any of Act 2.

    Some of the show will be archived. The lighting was done by the parents. The ice is on it's last legs. After the show they remake the ice on the rinks. The skaters were saying it was very thin (I have no idea what that means). The DVD blooper real will be huge!
