    :lol: Interesting nickname for the beautiful Tanith! :)

    BTW, Tahiti Tanith is doing an excellent job commentating and interviewing for IceNetwork.com at Omaha Nats.

    She is by far my favorite commentator for dance! Very informative, insightful commentary, feel like I learn so much. Would love to see her get an NBC spot for the Olympics...

    She did do GREAT commentary on IN. Also a lot of interviews; MUCH more thoughtful and interesting than any of the vapid interviews they showed on NBC. (Which reminds me: I want to write IN and USFS and tell them about all the GREAT things about nationals this year--Tanith, Michael Buckley, B feed--and the not-so-great--the continuation of useless and annoying NBC commentators; much as I respect Scotty Hamilton, he totally phones it in on commentary).

    She's also been doing some choreography. IIRC she did a program for Hannah Miller and earlier this year she was talking about working with a team (I think pair team, but not sure).

    I believe Belbin worked with some of the pairs in both Colorado Springs and Boston this past season. Here's a Belbin article that was published right before 2013 Nationals: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20130109&content_id=40899746&vkey=ice_news

    I saw Tanith working with Junior champs Simpson and Blackmer this weekend in Detroit. Looks like she is choreographing their programs this year. Should be interesting to see how her choreography is received.

    I liked the step sequences that she choreographed in Donlan/Speroff's SP last season. :) I'm looking forward to seeing what the does with Simpson/Blackmer.

    I came into this thread to see what Tanith has been up to and I thought to myself, I sure do miss Tanith/Ben on the ice
    so this is wonderful news. I am sure with a little practice that Ben and Tanith will ge right back into the groove.

    Thanks Sylvia for the info!

    Charlie and Tanth bought a house last year. She is also taking some college classes. I know she was splitting time between Canton and DSC.

    Thanks for sharing pictures. I actually had no idea there was a USFS dance camp. Very cool. She and Ben both look great, as always. Will be fun to see them back performing together again.
