    Russian male skaters on TV dance competition

    I have copied this from a dance message board (editing a bit to include only the facts):

    There will be a new Russian TV weekly dancing series called "BOLERO" (Rosiya 1 channel) which pairs famous male figure skaters with star-ballerinas from Moscow or St Petersburg.

    http://pipcindom.ru/...read.php?t=1319

    Head judge will be Vladimir Vasiliev. Other judges include Gediminas Taranda and, from the skating world, Tatyana Navka and Tamara Moskvina.

    Emcee is Ilze Liepa; journalist and author Vladimir Pozner will conduct interviews.

    Choreographers for the weekly show include Nacho Duato and Radu Poklitaru.

    The dancer-skater partnerships will be:

    Moscow's 'Team Ilya Averbukh' -

    Alexei Yagudin with Kristina Kretova (Stanislavsky Ballet)
    Maxim Marinin with Natalia Somova (Stanislavsky Ballet)
    Roman Kostomarov with Natalia Osipova (Bolshoi Ballet)
    Maxim Shabalin with Ekaterina Krysanova (Bolshoi Ballet)

    St. Petersburg's 'Team Farukh Ruzimatov' -

    Maxim Stavisky with Evgenia Obraztsova (Mariinsky Ballet)
    Alexei Tikhonov with Vera Arbuzova (Mikhailovsky Ballet)
    Peter Tchernichev with Irina Perren (Mikhailovsky Ballet)
    Povilas Vanagas and Yulia Makhalina (Mariinsky Ballet)

    Here is the 'trailer' for the TV show, featuring Natalia Osipova with Roman Kostomarov:

    Russian Channel 1 is carried by COMCAST cable in several US markets.

    Just to be clear--this will be a dance competition, not a skating competition.

    (I'm not sure if the links will work now that I've copied and pasted them here; my apologies if they do not.)

    RUKen, thanks. The following link should work:
    http://www.1tv.ru/sprojects_in_detail/si=5842

    It includes links to an ad (Bolshoi star Natalia Osipova and Roman Kostomarov are smokin' hot!), as well as many photos, seen as thumbnails if you scroll to the bottom. [Hunky Peter Tchernichev & his partner, Irina Perren, are at the top of 'page 2' of the thumbnails.]

    The show begins this Saturday at 21:15 (9:15pm), Moscow time. Comcast TV carries Rossiya 1 channel on its Digital packages (Channel 654 in the Washington, DC area, for example).

    Thank you, RUKen. Kristina Kretova is in the 'Bolshoi' now though.

    She must have recently switched to the Boslhoi, as she was at the Stan a year ago.

    This sounds so cool! I bet most of the men do fairly well, which would make it interesting to watch. I hope some of this ends up online, so I can see it.

    She switched to Bolshoi this summer together with the group of other Stanislavsky dancers.
