    I was just coming back to correct myself.. I knew some Canadian ice dancers had worked with him..but I think it was for styling, not complete choreography..and now I think it was C/P. ( I need my coffee )
    However Najarro is a tango specialist as well, so...?

    Agree with those who wrote that they actually can't see Abbott in this "style". All Najarro's works I saw looked very passionate and a bit aggressive even. Not sure Abbott can show this. But... we'll see.

    P.S. He is Najarro, not Navarro or Narraro.

    Actually I find great difficulties imagining Joubert or even Abbott skating to Flamenco music...

    Flamenco is not a word I ever expected to see in a sentence with Jeremy Abbott's name. Should be interesting, though. Maybe it will make him more aggressive.

    It's not what I would pick for Jeremy or Brian, but I like seeing them try something different. Hopefully it will work.

    Well, it will be Brian's SP. Brian has a been a tiny bit more adventurous with his SP. It is about time he challenges himself choreographically.

    Somehow, I can see Jeremy doing Flamenco. But, Joubert? Good or bad, they will please ladies for sure. Good for everybody, I guess.

    Since when does a Joubert program have anything to do with choreo or interpretation?

    Maybe we will finally see the true Joubert!
    Or maybe not.
    Anyway, I hope that he can get good choreo.

    Abbot is a musical guy. I would love to see him doing ice dance (with Massimo...)

    And my third thought was "Joubert? Flamenco??? PML!!!"

    Oh, those are wonderful news on so many levels!
    All so true!

    I think Joubert would likely have a Flemenco costume and open his short program with some flamenco like move and also possibly end the routine with a flamenco like move. Obviously there is no Flamenco way to do a triple lutz or a quad triple or a flamenco way to a mohawk turn but maybe in costume and attitude he could do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Maybe he'll do a more subdued style of flamenco, like the Gallecia Flameco Kimmie Meisner used a few years ago. And, before anyone starts , I'm only referring to the music. Although I liked the interpretation, too

    Really ? I'm a huge ABbott fan, and I loved the drama in his Tango LP in 2009 and the passion in his Waltz LP in 2008.
    I think that passion + drama can do a perfect Flamenco.
    Anyway, it depends so much on the music and the choreography. Let's wait and see

    At least, it's better taste than Joubert.

    Are you sure it's flamenco moves and not just because the rink is too sunny ?

    I agree with Mr Fan. I think Brian would be great with flamenco! He's all about the sexy macho posturing. I see it less with Jeremy but he's a good artist I think he could pull it off too. These could turn out to be great programs.
