    A wonderful opportunity to see two great champions at very reasonable prices for a great cause!

    Very impressed that they are doing this show in Connecticut even though they are living in California now!

    Not so. They are in Orange County and have been there since moving back to CA; Ilia will be opening his own training facility, Kulik's Skating, in 2012 in Lake Forest, CA. Exciting stuff!!

    They both are also doing Stars On Ice in the US this year (Katia is also doing the Japan dates) and they did Scott's fundraiser for the Cleveland Clinic in November together. They both will also be starring in the last show of the Disson Skating season (taping outside Seattle in late January) "Romance on Ice." Busy folks.

    It's really great that they can give some time to such a good cause at their former home base.

    If there's something wrong with you, it's not that!! Her strong, elegant stroking is a thing of absolute beauty and not to be minimized in these days of sloppy basics.

    So they must be going straight from Lake Placid to Simsbury, since the opening night of Stars on Ice is Dec. 30!

    Oh you lucky people who get to go to this. You do realize we expect full and complete reports from this, right? :)

    Chize - Ilia will not be doing the Japan dates which I know is disappointing for his Japanese fans.
