    On paper, Evan and Rachel seem to be the skaters least able to come up with a quick improv routine. This could be a first chance to see how DWTS might have have changed that about EL.

    [When I'd read about Skate for the Heart somewhere else I was interested 'cos it's "just south of me" in Ohio. Then a glance at a map reminded me Youngstown's not exactly in the nearby Toledo part of the state. ]

    I think this is not the first time for Evan in this show? Actually I seem to remember that he did very well last year (or was it the the year before?) he was participating.

    I though share your doubts about Rachael Flatt...

    Evan did Improv Ice last year in Anaheim. It was pretty good. Jeff Buttle's was the best and I was very unimpressed with Sasha Cohen.

    I wonder if Shae-Lynn will be in the Riverdance show

    Kudos to Rachael for at least giving it a shot. Who knows, she may surprise us all!

    Ooh....Lowell is right next door!!! It would be great if Shae was in that one. However, it might cut into Battle of the Blades time.
    Don't cry because its over...smile because it happened.

    Yeah, I didn't mean to make my earlier comment a put-down. I just wanted to open my big mouth and flap it about something.

    I haven't seen these recent Improv shows. I remember that other improv event from several years ago was very interesting.

    This earlier thread in late April featured a link to a publicity poster that included the names of Nagasu, Flatt, Davis/White, Denney/Barrett and Weiss (still to be officially confirmed perhaps?).

    Sylvia, it has been unconfirmed but that poster was on Evan's FB and it is on the page that is selling tickets.

    What, the 1950s? Will Tenley, Carol, and the Jenkins brothers be the guest stars? Is somebody going to skate Dick Button's "Roumanian Fantasy" program? I'm having a hard time figuring out how this concept fits in with the Disson formula.....

    I would LOVE that
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Perhaps it will include several of the top skaters of the 1990's?

    I wish! (Has MK ever done a Disson show? She co-hosted one, but I don't think she ever performed in one)

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Maybe they will have Michelle Kwan perform a Lawrence Owen program . . . I'd travel and pay sky high ticket prices for that

    Did all the shows actually happen last year? wouldn't be surprised if the "great tribute" show was the one getting the shaft this time...

    Anyway, one of the first things that caught my eye when looking at the roster was that Rachel Flatt has decided to do the improv-ice show...interesting to see what she can come up with...
