    I am getting tired of Nichol choreography but it may actually suit Mao. I wonder what the music is.

    Lori Nichol brought her Nocturne, Fantaisie Impromptu, and Claire de Lune (I am happy to forget about Nutcracker and Czardas), in other words, YAY!

    Given what this past season looked like, this is a step in the right direction for Mao. I think Nicol will design something that is 'right size' for her and leverages her natural qualities. While no one hits it out of the park every time, I think on balance Laurie is a good choice right now.

    This makes me happy.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Cautiously Optimistic!

    Ok Lori, work some of that Joannie Magic now! (I loved Nocturne and Claire de lune started to grow on me, but wasn't crazy about the rest of the programs Lori gave Mao in the past. Certainly none of her LPs were home runs for me.)

    Now how about Tom Dickson or Shae-lynn for the SP choreo?!?

    Eh, Salome Brunner is CLEARLY the most innovative, experssionate choreographer at the moment. Lambiel's programs were utter genius this year and Meier's stuff has always been understated elegance. What she could for Mao makes me at the very thought.

    Lori is over used and fresh out of ideas...Salome would be a far better choice.

    I think Brunner is too much to take for Asada.

    I would agree that the work Brunner has done with Lambiel is gorgeous. I would think that after this very rocky season Mao needs both a comfortable, nurturing working relationship as well as some nice programs. For Mao, Laurie is the "known" and is comfortable (I'm guessing) and I think that's the closest thing to fitting the bill for Mao right now. While Brunner is remarkably talented, Mao needs a high comfort level and she can't know that with Brunner in advance. I think she's going down the right road which is to say minimizing any chance of a train wreck like 1) her last LP 2) her odd relationship with TT. I hope she has a satisfying season.

    Nichol is a very good fit for Mao, IMO.

    Lori Nichol is a wonderful choice for Mao, in my opinion. She has the ability to create brilliant choreographies to fit the skater in question perfectly. And her choreographies seem always new.

    It's certainly an improvement from TAT overload. TAT can create great programs for Mao, but not 3 great programs all in one season. I hope Lori goes more in the direction of Fantaisie Impromptu than Claire de Lune. Mao is older now and too good for pretty princess routines which I thought Claire de Lune was.

    Anyways, ganbare Mao!

    I agree with you on this. Lori Nichol seems to have that special ability. She should be great for Asada.
