    Actually, I think that there is a lot of emphasis on skating skills and transitions in training and in program construction. The problem is, not everyone knows how to combine transitions and the display of strong skating skills with good interpretation and well-executed elements and programs.

    I'm still amused that he thinks the problem with S/S is that there programs are repetitive. I can't imagine how someone with any understanding of skating can say that with a straight face.

    I understand it if he's talking about this year only. Both programs have similar costumes and no really unique moves so they're not easy to distinguish, the way that Angels & Demons/Pina or Korobushko/Pink Panther were. The choreo in Bolero is not stellar and contains many of their old moves. It still has more transitions than most other programs, but for someone familiar with S&S, it's repetitive.

    If he means they are repetitive generally in their career, then yeah, that's insane.
