    Charlotte is pretty good but Lori Bonacorsi is probably better and she's smaller so would have more luck finding a partner as she has a broader size range that would be suitable.

    As for Dean he'd need a very small ice dance partner ideally. Usually, female ice dancers are tall by skating standards. Maia, Meryl, and Elena are some of the smallest girls competing now, and even they are around 5'3 or 5'4, which is probably the tallest Dean could partner without looking mismatched IMO. Bonacorsi is in this height range and could actually be a feasible match.

    Kaitlin Hawayek/Michael Bramante's names were recently removed from USFS' International Selection Pool.

    Not a split but a coaching change since Nationals: twins Danielle & Alexander Gamelin (12th in Junior Dance; aged out of ISU Junior events) have moved from the University of Delaware to Wheaton, Maryland: http://www.wisa.us/skaters.html

    From that:

    I'm a little sad that Baker won't stay in Seattle, though I can understand going to Detroit. I loved that Baker/Yang had a unique look and approach--which I (perhaps incorrectly?)--attribute to their being coached by his mom & dad. Hope that the new partnership works out very well! And wishing Joylyn Yang the best with her back.

    I know nothing about Hawayek. Vid links, anyone?

    It is my understanding that Jean-Luc Baker's primary coach and choreographer in Seattle was his mother Sharon Jones Baker (the 1985-1988 British ice dance champion with Paul Askham), with coaching assistance from his father, Steve Baker.

    Hope that the new partnership works out very well! And wishing Joylyn Yang the best with her back.
    I heard that that Joylyn Yang skated with Jean-Luc Baker in the Seattle Skating Club's 75th Anniversary Show last month and seems to be mostly healed though she reportedly has no plans to continue competing.

    Has anyone heard if either Jordan Cowan or Travis Mager have found a partner?

    I believe he is now skating with Julia Biechler, she and her former partner, Sasha Petrov, were second at Jr. Nationals for Intermediate.

    I take an ice dance class during the winter at a seasonal rink with Damian as the coach (he's a very good instructor, by the way), and he confirmed that he is skating with Julia and is happy to publicly announce this. Seems they clicked nicely and are excited and really looking forward to the future. I wish them the best and much success, Damian is a total sweetheart.

    Thanks for the news. They'll be skating Junior, I assume? That's a big jump for Julia, but she is a strong skater, I'm sure she'll be fine.

    Any word on whether Bramante has a new partner or is he done skating?

    I believe so, didn't confirm. Did confirm that Cassie Jeandell simply made the decision to stop skating, period. I like Cassie, but I think this will be a good change for Damian.

    Biechler/Dodge have to skate Junior because he competed Junior with Jeandell at 2012 U.S. Nationals. Thanks for the info, Yazmeen!

    Biechler's former partner, Alexander (Sasha) Petrov, competed Novice with Katherine Gourianova last month. Gourianova placed 7th in U.S. Intermediate Dance with Caleb Wein (currently listed on IPS) last season.

    Interesting pairing. I'm glad to see that they are bucking the Canton trend and will be training in Delaware.

    Glad to see that Bella has found a new partner...from the vids I've seen of Michael, I think they will be a good match. Best of luck to them and also to Hawayek/Baker.

    Ice dance splits

    Rumor has it Lauri Bonacorsi relocated to Detroit to skate with Ian Lorello who broke up his partnership because he wanted to go to the DSC. Understand that Travis Major although not on Ips but is looking for a partner.

    Rumor also has it that Jessica Mancini left Tyler Brooks to relocate to the DSC and is skating with Brad Kleffman.
    Anyone know who Tyler Brooks joined as he was looking??
    Who else moved to Detroit??
