    Thanks for the news. They'll be skating Junior, I assume? That's a big jump for Julia, but she is a strong skater, I'm sure she'll be fine.

    Any word on whether Bramante has a new partner or is he done skating?

    I believe so, didn't confirm. Did confirm that Cassie Jeandell simply made the decision to stop skating, period. I like Cassie, but I think this will be a good change for Damian.

    Biechler/Dodge have to skate Junior because he competed Junior with Jeandell at 2012 U.S. Nationals. Thanks for the info, Yazmeen!

    Biechler's former partner, Alexander (Sasha) Petrov, competed Novice with Katherine Gourianova last month. Gourianova placed 7th in U.S. Intermediate Dance with Caleb Wein (currently listed on IPS) last season.

    Interesting pairing. I'm glad to see that they are bucking the Canton trend and will be training in Delaware.

    Glad to see that Bella has found a new partner...from the vids I've seen of Michael, I think they will be a good match. Best of luck to them and also to Hawayek/Baker.

    Rumor has it Lauri Bonacorsi relocated to Detroit to skate with Ian Lorello who broke up his partnership because he wanted to go to the DSC. Understand that Travis Major although not on Ips but is looking for a partner.

    Rumor also has it that Jessica Mancini left Tyler Brooks to relocate to the DSC and is skating with Brad Kleffman.
    Anyone know who Tyler Brooks joined as he was looking??
    Who else moved to Detroit??

    Is Suzie Semanick Schurman still coaching in the Delaware area? Any word on Cannuscio/Bramante's new coach(es)?

    Hate to be nit-picky, but I keep seeing it in this thread. It's Laura Bonacorsi. :)

    I'm pretty sure it's "Lauri". Not only is that the name used in skating bios, it's also the one on her FB and Twitter accounts.

    Samuelson & Gilles have been removed from The Team C envelope but are still on the international selection pool listings; one might think they have retired/split, anyone have any info? I hate to see Emily sidelined like this along with Jana K, IMO they are the best female dancers out there, such a shame to see wonderful talent being held back by lack of a suitable male!!!

    Lot's of terrific ladies out there are held back in ice dance because of a lack of a suitable male. Nothing new there. Sad that U.S. mentality makes it difficult to attract young men into dance of any kind. It is the most physically demanding of sports out there and the common perception is that it is a gay sport.

    :confused: Interesting. They're still listed as one of the headliners for Skate For Hope (http://www.skateforhope.org/site/PageServer?pagename=Headliners) in two weeks (June 16).

    Uhmm...many talented men also out there and unable to find suitable partners too, e.g. Cowan, Travis (not sure if he's still available?), Tyler Brooks, Ian Lorello (with Lauri? ), etc. Keiffer was sidelined for a year until O/C split.

    I think we need to hear from Gramps on this one.

    Wishing the best for Emily & Todd.

    Well this just stinks. I love Emily Samuelson, she is such a beautiful skater (and a nice person) and I will be very sad if this is the end of her skating career. Dare I hope she has found a better partner?

    In a million depressions over this......I was hoping to see them improve this year and get the open Skate America spot.

    He was never big/strong enough for her anyway, so it's for the best.

    Madeleine Rutledge was a singles skater (ETA: she qualified for Junior Nationals last season but did not advance to the Intermediate Ladies final round) and is new to dance - I think she's around 14 years old. Will Rutledge/Brooks be training in Colorado Springs?
