    SD -- refer to the tweet from yesterday (Friday) that says: "Lots of lovely short dances today."

    Meryl & Charlie say the delicate, whimsical "Amelie" lets them show off a new side to their skating.
    "We have power, speed; now we're really focusing on line, toe point, things that weren't necessarily our strength in the past" Meryl says.
    Yes!! I'm so glad they are realizing this and making these improvements. Speed and power is certainly impressive but paying attention to detail is key.

    Is this the part D&W are using or just a part of the sound track?

    Tweet from Sarah and Drew:

    BTW, saw Jeremy's "Life is Beautiful" long program - very epic, and he did a perfect quad too.

    She towers over most of the other ladies skaters, but skaters on average are on the small side, so she's probably average height if I had to guess.

    I second that question - actually I thought they'd rather use La Valse d'Amelie, since SD is the waltz... but anyways they can still mix different pieces of music, right? I mean, the rules didn't change in that area, I hope?

    Not sure what peice(s) they are using, but they have to have a waltz. The other pieces (if they choose to use a different tempo) have to be Foxtrot, Quickstep or Tango.

    Lynn Rutherford saw Caroline's short.

    @frauregina
    Her short, to Astor Piazzolla's Libertango, looked good. An article will appear shortly. She's a true original.

    She's about average height maybe a little shorter.

    Evan Lysacek, on the other hand...wow, I was surprised at how tall he was.

    I've got $5 that says D/W will skate to "Umbrellas of Cherbourg" next season and/or whatever music the Shibutani's leave behind this season.

    According to Adam's Facebook, they performed them yesterday:

    Great long debut! There's a lot to work on before the Grand Prix starts, but I'm up for it

    I hope we'll get some info and reports soon, I'm so curious about the new programs

    By later posts, it looks like they will skate 'Amelie' as an OD? So, they may only incorporate a part of this, if they use it at all.

    I thought it was going to be the FD and since this is labeled the theme song, I assumed this piece would be part of it.

    Drew trains in CO Springs - I think the rink used for Champs Camp is the Broadmoor club's home rink.

    The World Arena is pretty open for skaters to walk between the 3 rinks. It would be hard to completely close it off to inside access. Drew trains there.
