I hope Emily has left Marina/Igor. My guess is she has.
I certainly hope she had left them. I wish her Grandfather would post and let us know how she's doing.
I would imagine she is back with Yasa & Yuri. Leaving them is what started this mess.
Emily just posted on Facebook, "decision time is fast approaching"
I hope that doesn't mean that she is thinking about retiring!
Could she be thinking about moving somewhere else to train? That might mean changing colleges too.
It could just mean that Sept 1 is fast approaching--deadline to register for Regionals/Sectionals.
I like your guess better!
Fingers crossed Emily has found that perfect partner!!! Any ideas who she may have tried out with?
Emily's (Samuelson) twitter today: Decisions, decisions, decisions! Life is getting exciting! =)
Curious as to where we are at with the US Senior Ice Dance Teams... and wondering how packed Sectionals may be after all as a result.
All three sectionals take place Nov. 15-Nov. 20 this year.
Meryl Davis/Charlie White (Russia Grand Prix the following week)
Maia Shibutani/Alex Shibutani (NKH the previous week)
Lynn Kriengkrairut/Logan Giulietti-Schmitt (NHK the previous week)
*Hmm. Interesting no dance teams are currently assigned to Trophee Eric Bombard that same weekend as Sectionals... perhaps with so many dance teams training with the top coaches it was more of a coach choice than a coincidence?
Anyone else who may receive a bye?

Reportedly looking for a partner and not listed on IPS.com:
Keiffer Hubbell, Emily Samuelson
Listed on IPS.com (Is this still accurate?):
Collin Brubaker, Ryan Van Natten
Alissandra Aronow, Piper Gilles, Alison Carey
Kristen Nardozzi reportedly has teamed up recently with Nick Traxler, according to this thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79840
I assume they will compete out of Mids.

New CDN ice dance team - Gilles & Poirier
Not that I know of right now. Byes to 2012 Nationals due to their top 5 Senior level finish at 2011 Nationals (in addition to their scheduled GP assignments): Davis/White, Shibutani/Shibutani, Kriengkrairut/Giulietti-Schmitt.
Here are some of the Senior, Junior and Novice Dance entries for the Challenge Cup competition (Sept. 8-11, 2011, hosted by the Philadelphia Skating Club and Humane Society in Ardmore, PA):
SENIOR: I. Cannuscio/I. Lorello, A. Cannuscio/McManus, Zuber/Herring, Pilgrim/A. Lorello, Hoptman/Filchenkov, Halstead/Knopf
JUNIOR: Parsons/Parsons, McNamara/Carpenter, Pham/Pham, Pogrebinsky/Gudis, Jeandell/Dodge
NOVICE: Grant/Skala, M. Lorello/Dean, Miller/MacMillan, Pfeifer/G. Lorello
Are the 4 lorrelos related?
Pretty sure they are all siblings.
Yes, all 4 ice dancing Lorellos are siblings! Scroll down to the Notes section in Isabella Cannuscio/Ian Lorello's ISU bio: http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00010376.htm
A January 2011 article about the University of Delaware's Nationals Send-Off Show mentioned the Lorellos' ages: "... 14-year-old twins Meara and Grant, Alexander, 23, and Ian, 20."
So what happened with Chock & Bates? Have they skated? Has anyone heard anything?
The Onyx Challenge is this weekend, but I don't see ice dance on the schedule. Are C/B just doing an exhibition?
Sylvia just answered my question with this tweet:
thanks TBF and Sylvia. That's good to hear that they skated!
Pretty good SD score but ouch on the FD score. But it's early yet and they are a new team plus they might not have had all their elements ready so I'm sure it will improve.
Really wishing I hadn't moved... Although I might be back helping a friend move so maybe I'll catch some of it.
Yeah, very good on the SD score but the FD score is bad. But it will definitely improve.
Chock and Bates were just added to Skate Canada this morning.
Great news, that!
I'm so happy for Evan and Madie, I think they have a wonderful chemistry and will do very well. I'm so impressed with the progress they've made in such a short time together. The new partner along with the change to new coaches seems to have really inspired Evan. I'm also really hoping that Emily can do likewise. Todd is an amazing skater, too, so it will be great fun to see the two teams eventually come up against each other.
It seems they would train at Detroit Skating Club where Todd's sister is already training.
Really, you think so? I think Emily and Todd are gonna go with the coaches that are best for them and not because his sister is there, but then again... Them training at the Detroit Skating Club is my preference though.
Right, his sister is there because their mom must think that it's the best place to train. I think that it would probably be more comfortable for Emily, as a side benefit.
Isn't it super crowded in Detroit though? I thought I read something that said Samuelson's former coaches suggested she go to Lake Placid and try out with Gilles. Ann Arbor only has the one other senior team right now, so at least they'd get a lot of training/ice time. Hoping they go elsewhere for choreography.
Samuelson/Gilles will be coached by Yasa Nechaeva and Yuri Chesnichenko in Ann Arbor and their choreographers will be Tom Dickson (SD) and Christopher Dean (FD), according to this new article: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20110909&content_id=24436722&vkey=ice_news
Challenge Cup Novice-Senior dance results in Ardmore, PA so far:
Senior Short Dance: http://www.pschs.org/cc_results/SEG037.html
Junior Short Dance: http://www.pschs.org/cc_results/SEG035.html
Novice Pattern Dance 1: http://www.pschs.org/cc_results/SEG032.html
Novice Pattern Dance 2: http://www.pschs.org/cc_results/SEG033.html
I wish them to have a good training season with their new coaches!
I was surprised that C/Mc beat C/L in SD. Did they compete FD, any result?
Senior FD results were published online today: http://www.pschs.org/cc_results/SEG038.html
Isabella Cannuscio tweeted on Sept. 10:
Junior FD: http://www.pschs.org/cc_results/SEG036.html
Novice FD: http://www.pschs.org/cc_results/SEG034.html
Intermediate FD: http://www.pschs.org/cc_results/SEG031.html
Juvenile FD: http://www.pschs.org/cc_results/SEG028.html
It looks like C/L are having some serious issues making their levels at this point, in both dances.
Isabella tweeted that she had a painful case of whiplash (I think she and Ian fell on a rotational lift in practice?) so it was probably not what they are capable of doing full-out.
They scored better at Lake Placid IDC in late July when they won the Senior FD:
ETA: Anastasia Cannuscio/Colin McManus are scheduled to make their senior international debut at the Ondrej Nepela Memorial in 2 weeks so I would expect them to be further ahead in their competition readiness than C/L.
A very unexpected result there. I think I would have flipped the Top 3 upside down.
Is Meara Lorello in novice a sibling of Ian Lorello?
