Thanks for posting the videos, much appreciated.
I went to Sunday's show where Evan skated to The Climb and Tango de Roxanne. Everything was great. Kudos to Jason Wong, head choreographer, for all the great group numbers. Mirai seemed to really enjoy performing. Ross did "Luck Be a Lady Tonight" by Frank Sinatra and really sold it! Stephen Carriere, Yasmin Siraj, Donlan/Speroff, Castelli/Shnapir, and everyone else were terrific.
I have come to the conclusion that it is a Massachusetts State Law that someone from SCOB has to use "Feeling Good" for their exhibition every single year. Thankfully, a few years ago they abandoned using the song "Ice Action" for the big showcase number that features the up-and-coming competitors. I think that was about the time the "Feeling Good" law went into effect! But, the show definitely did leave me feeling good!
We went to the Saturday afternoon show.
The show's director is the son of a man that works with my wife.
Happiness is being married to your best friend!
So did anyone get to see Evan's Samson and Delilah program?
