    Does anyone know what Tatiana Navka is up to these days? Do Roman and Tatiana still skate in any shows? Does she currently live in Russia?

    since 2006 she has appeared in many tv shows on Russian tv with all different partners. Like ice age. Skating tv shows are like produced every year and she's been on many of them. Not a lot or any with roman but she's so busy.

    I can add to what caseyedwards wrote. Those shows go on an extensive tour in Russia each year. Last season the TV shows took a break, but all the professional russian skaters who take in part in those shows still went on a tour. Then Averbukh (who is the producer, coach and choreographer of those shows) also produces a kind of theatre on ice shows with skaters, dancers, acrobats and singers that also go on tours in Russia and sometimes elsewhere. Navka and Kostomarov have been in all (or almost all) of those shows, although not always skating together. Also, Averbukh has said that there will be a TV show for the professional skaters again this season. Most likely then you will be able to see the videos on the Russia Channel 1 (where those shows are shown) website, as well as on Youtube.

    Just an aside about the popularity of those shows in Russia.
    At 2011 Worlds in Moscow the pictures that lined the walls of the mezzanine of the Megasport arena were of the current crop of TV ( pro) skaters and not of the current amateur skaters nor of the considerable number of Russian stars over the years.
    I was surprised by the emphasis on the TV skaters..it may have been about access to available promotional shots on short notice .
    The walkway entry to the Megasport arena featured a 'legacy' walk with standup billboards of all the Russian greats in hockey..I was hoping we might see the same feature for figure skating inside the arena

    Thanks for the posts and videos. Too bad I can't see the Ice Age show in the US! It seems great.

    About 2 weeks ago, she appeared in the running race in Ekaterinburg, Russia with Alexei Yagudin.

    Here is the post in 'Alexei official Facebook, Twitter' thread by Ola.
