    absolutely! :swoon:
    they and Stolbova/Klimov are this season's number ones for me!

    :p

    I agree, that uberdramatik ending is unintentionally hilarious. so far their both programmes leave me a bit cold. maybe my expectations were a tad too high...

    I was racking my brain and couldn't remember G/B's names. I have seen them mentioned at all during the test skates. I always felt sad for them, though I can't say why (other than the cruddy programs they always seemed to have).

    Rondo + The Swan? It's Plushy's personal homage to JWe. And he's even sporting a pseudo-Weirtard. :lol:

    He is like the fountain of youth for me. I can't believe that after all these years, we're still watching Plush and I hope he skates forever because that way I'll never feel old.

    She tried to foist it upon Johnny, too.

    Love BobSol's SD. In fact, it's the first SD I've seen for this season that I actually like.

    Did Averbukh choreograph both of Makarova's programs this season? I love, love, love her long program (well, the abbreviated version that we saw).

    Makarova's SP is the same from last season. Yes, it was choreographed by Averbukh, as is the new LP.

    Watching VoloTran's LP. See the elements, can't see a programme. Rewatching. Nope, no programe, just elements.

    Thanks! I only saw a vid of her long so I didn't realize she was keeping her short.

    Who else has Averbukh worked with?

    The German ice dancers Zhiganshina & Gaszi. Their FD will be a zombie theme. :D I hope Averbukh becomes the next big thing in choreography.

    I think Makarova may have had my two favourite programmes last season albeit for different reasons. :lol:

    That sounds super voidy. :kickass:

    I love Makarova's programs as well. Can't wait to see more of Averbukh's choreography. :)

    nice. I also want to see the brother-sister duel of Nelli and Ruslan

    Averbukh and Irina Zhuk seems to be the popular go to choreographers now for Russian skaters along with Morozov

    Is it just a coincidence, or is Irina Zhuk a relation to the coach Stanislav Zhuk?

    (sorry if this question has been asked a million times). :cold:

    There were reports on the Russian forum that Averbukh choreographed one or both programs for Sinitsyna/Zhiganshin.

    It must not have been that much help. He usually thinks of more interesting stuff.

    Really... welcome to the board though. I managed with my blunder to make a lurker to post the first post.

    LOL. Is that helpful? I guess her coaching results speak for itself.

    She looks kind of disgusted at the beginning of the video, wonder why.:lol:
    Love Tarasova, she always puts so much heart and soul into everything she does.
