    And choreographed by Christopher Dean... OMG!!! Its awesome when you are a huge skating fan and you find something that is pleasantly surprising. You spend hours watching Youtube and there is little by way of performances that you havent seen and then WHAM out of nowhere you find something incredible!

    The caption beneath the video says "CSOI 99" (1999 Canadian Stars on Ice tour).

    That was great. I believe it was CSOI 1999.

    Nice -- thanks for the link.

    But I would say "Kurt Browning and Tara Lipinski skate a duet," not that they "skate pairs" (as in the sport of competitive pair skating), considering that there are no pair elements in the program.

    I get what you're saying, but I think SBS triples passes for a pair element. ;)

    I saw it on some tv special. I think it was a Tara special in 1999? Or maybe it was a Kurt special. Anyway, it was cool.

    Two single skaters share some ice and all of a sudden they are pairs skaters :D Those poor pairs skaters can't catch a break

    Now if Kurt and Tara had done a twist or thow...that would have been amazing.

    I do remember Viktor Petronko skating with a girl and their lifts were pretty impressive but she was very flexible, she skated with hoops.

    So. . . um. . . no one else finds it a wee bit peculiar seeing romantic themes between a 16/17-year-old (ie, underage) and a 30-something-year-old? I can see that the sex/romance is relatively toned down for the Malaguena (and I appreciate the choreographer's emphasis on lines and shapes--pretty cool), and the second link is to a cutesy-wootsy type of number but still romantic.

    Still--kudos for the nice SBS 3toes & 3sals.

    Is there another program where they do SBS 3loop, or were you talking about the 3salchows in Malaguena?

    So true. That's really the whole story of being a skating fan, right?

    I had forgotten how watchable Tara was. We had 3 really young girls win the Olympic ladies medals, and I think watching these videos of Tara with the incomparable Kurt that she was the one of the 3 with the most natural and instinctive talent for skating as art, not just an athletic sport. I always like watching skaters who can keep your attention through a whole programme evne when there are few tricks. It is a shame she didn't stay with it to show us what would have come to the ice with her maturing personality.

    My thoughts too. But it wasn't in a competition, and was quite lovely. Didn't Ilia Kulik skate a number with Oksana Baiul, and another with Katia Gordeeva? We should see more duets in a Stars On Ice setting.

    ^Thanks for the links. Loved Ilia and Katia! They both sizzled in
    that program! Kudos to CD for his creative and wonderful choreography.
