    I can't find too much information yet on the 2012 edition of Shizuka's show in Japan but Ilia just confirmed that he will be skating in it Aug. 24-26. So we know about Arakawa and Kulik so far - there will be lots more!!

    No Lysacek? He always does Shizuka shows, right? Maybe this means he will get the TBA spot at Skate America and will be at Champs Camp? Or is there a Senior B competition close to that date (I remember he said he would do one to get the minimum scores required)?

    Champs camp Aug. 21-26 (tentative) and that would indeed prevent him from participating in 2012 Shizuka show.

    There was earlier info about Lysacek competing at Nebelhorn Trophy, it will be held near the end of September.

    I've got some mails from my friends and they said that one of the biggest highlights that made the audience go crazy was a collaboration of "Swan Lake". Shizuka's Techno Swan, Daisuke's Hip Hop Swan and Miki's Black Swan. The audience screamed, screamed and screamed and one of them said she almost broke her throat. :D

    Do Ilia and Katia still actively do shows? I thought they were now coaching in CA

    Yes, Ilia and Katia both do shows. Last year they did quite a few.

    And yes again, Ilia also has Kulik's Skating in Lake Forest, CA. Ilia has not yet made the transition to coaching only and that will happen over a period of time. Right now this combination - shows and coaching - is working. This has been his plan for some time and he is in the middle of it. For the higher level skaters whom he coaches like Michael Christian Martinez and Amanda Gelb, he is not the sole coach so can break away now and again to do a show. Unfortunately for us folks who love to watch him do what he still does so beautifully, eventually there will be no more shows. But I know he will be a superb coach.
