    Is that the one where he had a parrot on his shoulder?

    ETA : if you give me the exact year, I can check in my collection; I have videos starting 1965 or something, lol.
    But I don't have his SP from 94, if that is the program.

    He was such a interesting skater. When I first saw video of him from 93 Euros he was classical and graceful. Then got really voidy, skating to his own music.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    I wish he choreographed for more skaters.

    One of the most creative and voidy male skaters ever. Fantastic programs (and mad costumes ).

    Amazing program. Much of that program would hold up very well today - tons of transitions, interesting spins, complex circular steps - wonderful.
    "I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence

    I just searched for his name on youtube and found a bunch of videos of Ukrainian ice theatre, mostly from 2009.

    That "Birds" SP is just AMAZING. <3

    Voids gallore!

    Dmitrenko coaches in Ukraine nowadays.

    He also choreographed some programs for a number of German ladies a while back.

    I wish more skaters would go to him for choreography instead of the cookie-cutter bores. He's so amazingly creative.

    OMG, thank you so much for sharing. I don't think I can call any other male skater voidy for a long time. Moves and uses of blades that you just wouldn't think of. Simply genius. Did he do his own choreography when he was competing?
