    I also agree with everyone on the Out of Africa by S/S. It was truly a masterpiece. It amazes me how they managed to create such a wonderful program in such a short period of time.

    The two IJS masterpieces that come to mind first are Takahashi's Cyber Swan and Matt Savoie's "The Mission", which have already been mentioned numerous times. I love Fernandez' "Pirates" program, but don't like that it rips off Braden Overett's drunk pirate and swashbuckling pirate step sequences from the previous season (Braden is a wonderful IJS choreographer and skater, just never had the consistency on his jumps).

    I'd like to add Mao Asada's 2009 SP to "Clair de Lune" to the list. It was seamless and magical, without compromising on difficulty. I think that among the ladies, Mao has exemplified IJS skating (especially as one of just a handful of ladies who have earned level 4's on their step sequences).

    I also agree with YuNa's SP to Danse Macabre (as performed at 2009 Worlds) and her Olympic FS to Gershwin.

    They took many elements of the choreography from their first program of the year

    Besides the programs that have been mentioned, I would add Jeremy Abbott's 8 Seasons LP (2008-09).

    A/P Carmina Burana was a masterpiece - no doubt - and IIRC that was under some early version of CoP. I'm not sure if that fits the requirement of CoP program though, since it was very different from the current version, from what I remember.

    Other outstanding and memorable dances - that I would call unforgettable and certainly masterpieces -

    K/N NoBMt - the program that rekindled my interest in ice dance and ice dancers after A/P retired.

    K/N Gypsy Dance - one of the few standout ODs in an dire season - a brilliant combination of creativity and emotion.

    P/G [?] Ravel's Waltz - a Tom Dickson dance that proves ballroom doesnt have to be boring.

    S/G Jr FD House of the Flying Daggers - Tak and I were just stunned after watching this - the elements were so seamlessly interwoven into the dance we hardly noticed them. I think we watched it 3 times and still couldnt believe how good it was.

    Other outstanding and memorable dances -

    Bollywood OD - very creative.

    Samson & Delilah FD - still their best program IMO

    F/S Moonlight Sonata - this was a gorgeous program with a very interesting concept. Unfortunately they never performed it really well. How I wish V/M had done this!

    ETA - I/K Jr FD - Schindler's List - an amazing mature and sober program - with an ending that grabs you like the movie did. I am still astounded that any 15 year old could pull that off!

    wow, I had no idea it was named Organ Donor... I guess I missed the whole main idea of the dance then... but I still loved it yeah, good old times before Zhulin, when their dances were incredible.

    Weaver/Poje: Phantom of the Opera (09-10 FD)
    I cannot believe that out of all Phantoms performed under CoP, you chose this one as outstanding... well, different tastes, I guess.

    Kerr/Kerr: Ruled by Secrecy (08-09 FD)
    I know I might be in minority, but I actually prefered Krlwng to this one.

    No, that was from 2000, several years before the first version of the new judging system was introduced.

    What you might be thinking of is that starting in the 1999 season there were required elements in free dances, so free dances from that era were more similarly structured to each other than FDs from 1998 and before.

    Also introduced at that time were required deductions for falls in dance.

    But the scoring until 2003 was all 6.0.

    LOL, especially when D/W had fantastic performances to compare in the same season. I guess it really is just personal taste. I have sort of an intense dislike of the POTO music. There are better programs/performances out there, certainly, but W/P's was the only one that made me actually enjoy the music rather than just grit my teeth through it while trying to enjoy the choreo/perf. Probably doesn't deserve to be on the outstanding list, but it was personally memorable. :shrug:

    (And I believe P/B's music was called the Organ Donor, but their concept was Insanity, so you probably didn't miss anything. )
