    very old question - Bolero

    Between Torvill and Dean's legendary "Bolero" in 1984 and Michelle Kwan's "Bolero" at 2005 Worlds, were there any major skater(s) who skated to this music?

    I remember I was surprised to see someone else finally having a gut to skate to this music back then, and it was another legendary skater Michelle.

    But it is not that I was following amateur figureskating during the 20year period, and I now wonder if my perception then was actually correct or not.

    After Michelle, I know other skaters did Bolero, Evan, Miki, and I am sure there are many others.

    Thank you for your help on this topic!

    Scott Williams had a long program to Bolero back in the mid-1990s.

    I believe Urmanov and Olga Markova had Bolero programs back in the 1990s as well.

    ETA: Here's Urmanov's 1992 Olympic original program...

    Who could ever forget that?

    Between the skintight red velvet , the slightly out-of-place but always delightful ass circle , and the flawlessly brilliant jumps...

    (And also it was the first Year of the Mullet!)

    Didn't Fumie Suguri and Evan Lysacek also have Bolero programs? (Although both were after Michelle's 2005 program)

    The first Bolero program that popped into my head was actually a pro routine, but for the life of me I couldn't remember who the pros were. I looked it up, and it was Leonova and Khvalko at the 2000 World Pros. Haven't seen it in a while, but I remember loving it.

    Thank you so much for your prompt answers, so ok, there were plenty of other skaters who had guts to skate !! After Michelle, I knew there were many, but I was not sure of pre-2005! Interesting for Navka and Kostomarov.

    and when I was younger, I was not in a favor of Plushenko and I just didn't watch him all together... (now I found a way to appreciate him )

    I love that FD. Easily my favorite program from them.

    Here's Navka & Kostomarov from 1999, choreographed by Linichuk, I think?

    Bolero is a type of dance, not a variation on a particular piece of music.

    Didn't Evan Lysacek skate an exhibition to Bolero a few years ago? And Miki Ando too.

    Bolero was Lysacek's short program during the 2008-2009 competitive season.
