    Thanks for the link Angie.

    I have not cared for show skating for years, and that's not likely to change. I wish they would show competitions instead of all the show skating. There must be a market for it if they are showing it though.

    Thanks so much for those links and for adding your other link in GSD for the Family Skating Tribute, Sylvia!

    Vash, I've watched and taped several of the Disson shows over the years, especially around the holidays. I've always liked most Disson shows because they have a good variety of skaters that perform. :)

    The skating shows are always so cheesy, that I cringe every time I watch them. However, I do enjoy watching Family Skating Tribute, not because of the skating, but because of the children of the skaters.

    Love the line up so far, Sylvia. It will be great to see Elvis, Kurt, Shawn and Shae-Lynn again. I'm also pleased that Meryl and Charlie will be there.

    Sylvia, you're a treasure trove of info!

    Looking very much forward to attending the Family Skating Tribute @ PSU for the adult skating cast (and seeing the all adorable kids - some of whom actually can skate well - Gabby Marvaldi, Liza Kulik, ...)

    :drama: How can there be "Unforgettable Moments of Love on Ice" if Brian Joubert, Morgan Cipres and I weren't invited to perform?

    Thank you, Sylvia. You're the greatest and I definitely LOVE the cast of skaters at this show. I know it's way ahead of time, but I've marked it on my calendar so I won't forget by the time February gets here to watch it ... Sinead and John Kerr! Whoohoo!! :D

    It's about time ice dancing gets more respect & coverage! Long overdue, but better late than never!
