    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.
