    Yay! I hope we get to see some really exciting dances at this show -- it's a great opportunity to get people interested in ice dance.

    I don't think I've ever been so excited about a skating show, this has TONS of potential!

    I really wish I could see this show live. It sounds amazing. Unfortunately, I looked up flights, and it looks like you have to fly to Toronto and then rent a car to drive to Hamilton - about an hour. Seems like a lot to do for 1 show. Sigh - I hope NBC doesn't chack too many numbers.

    Very excited. I just hope its not produced by the same people who did Thin Ice. I was kinda disaapointed in that show. Too cheesy for my taste (even though it had some great skating). The concept was just a little off. Fast paced current songs didn't necessarily go hand in hand with figure skating.

    The concept of this show sounds MUCH better. Skating + ballroom or latin dances = homerun!

    So do I. Still . . . even bits and pieces of a skating show are better than nothing. (Though I hope no one from NBC reads that and takes me at my word!)

    I saw Cody Green dance as the lead in Movin' Out in Chicago, and he was amaaaaazzzzing. :swoon: This show sounds too good to be true! I'd love to see it in person, too - wish they would've put it in a major city. Hopefully, the Canadian live TV broadcast won't chack anyone (I don't trust NBC to do the same), and some kind Canadian folks will upload vids. :)

    OMG How amazing does this concept and cast sound? I am breathless with anticipation; let the show begin! Hoping for one more addition to the cast -- maybe PTB hire Sandhu as a crossover act tween skater and reality dancer, and put him in a group number dancing with both Tessa and Shae Lynn, Whee, LOL!

    :( I have just one little reservation...I tend not to like the live music / skating mix on TV ,too often they seem to cut to the musical performer when you want to watch the skaters . Still ,overall..:)

    I agree - very frustration. I wonder why they don't use a split screen.

    I wish I could see it live, and, I hope those who are lucky enough to do so post detailed reviews (with videos) since I am sure NBC will chack a lot.

    At least NBC is showing 2 hrs. Hopefully, that means they don't chack a lot.

    And whoever mentioned about cutting to the musicians - I totally agree! It's so frustrating when they do that. I'm assuming that most of us who tune in to these shows is because of the skating. Although I appreciate the musicians, I really don't want to see them instead of the skating.

    NBC rarely chack skaters in these shows, as these shows are so geared towards television. I don't know whether CBC or CTV will show this, but Evasion will likely air it too.

    I have no idea pani, I would love to see the extended version of Mahler live (seeing the shortened CSOI version wasn't enough IMHO) but I imagine they will at least do one of their new competitive pieces (even better both).

    Interested to see where the Kerr's and D&W go with their programs too and if they will unveil their new competitive pieces there. I hope so, I have never seen any program in it's first go round before.

    It's a Disson show, so it will follow the pattern of your usual Disson show. The musical guests are the Canadian Tenors (who were fantastic at last year's Holiday Festival on Ice) and there are Broadway dancers as guest stars, so you can count on them cutting to the stage a lot, and you can count on some of the skaters doing programs specifically for this show to the musical guest star. It still looks like it'll be a really good show, though, but if you can get there live, you're more likely to catch everything...

    WildRose has collected most of the info here, but fyi, I've got everything I know about the show up here:
    http://www.kurtfiles.com/events/shallwedance10.php

    Shae-Lynn and Kurt have been asked to do a special duet for the show.

    Ooooohhhh....This is tempting!! Very, very, very tempting indeed.

    Have to see how the finances are after paying off for my vacation in Toronto to see CSOI and some other things first.

    And that could be ugly when all is said and done too, so...Will have to wait and see.

    After Proud Mary, I'm not surprised...they have so much fun skating together, great chemistry...I am so jealous of all of you who are going to see it. I only hope they show this on TV.
