They also tweeted that their coach, Yuri Chesnichenko, was married yesterday.Excited about next season! Our programs are coming together quite nicely!
I wonder if he is getting paid to skate with her and it is more a job for him. (Nothing bad in there, people have to live.) Otherwise I have no idea why he would skate with someone that far below his level. It will take years and years for her to catch up -if ever.

^Thanks (as always) Sylvia for posting this.
"awwww....shades of Janet Lynn" - Dick Button on anyone who makes more than one mistake in their program.
And who are the Phams training with?
Madison has a partner. I saw them practicing at DSC. I wish I could remember who it was. They looked great!
V/M's CD, it's all about deep edges, and there are only 16 steps to glide down the rink. It could be the camerawork, but V/M look like they are getting excellent glide. These are things at which the Shibutanis excel.
Even Denkova/Staviyski's and Dubreuil/Lauzon's hips aren't really close together, and the couples never look at one another. I suspect Maia Shibutani will wear more clothes than Jana Khoklova. The couple with the closest feet and hips is Delobel/Schoenfelder; they give the dance a suggestive lilt, and Moiseva/Minenkov's feet (from 1981) are right on top of each other.
I think people are thinking of Torvill/Dean's OD when they think Rhumba :

Is Isabella Tobias really that bad?
We would like to use the NHL rink (which has bleachers) for the IJS events, but that rink gets put down for the summer. The back rink, that we use for 6.0 events, does have some bleacher seating, but the setup along the back of the rink does not lend itself to IJS (i.e. not enough room for 2 long tables, plus the computer system).
The comp schedule should be up on the club website soon.
Dean Copely just tweeted that he and Charlotte Lichtman passed their gold dance tests. It's going to be interesting to see where they fit in next year. I loved their Beetlejuice FD.
