And now for something entirely different... (than T/D's Oscar Tango):
Shiganshina & Gazsi's Cirque Short Dance from 2010/2011.
AKA the "balloon skirt and farmer w/ crazy socks program" to the music with the seemingly random baby talk / fun house vocals and laughter.
Definitely can't leave this program out of any discussion of voidy / questionable programs.
This is amazing... I give credit to Taso for introducing this to me.
This girl is 12 and portraying a crazed exotic dancer.... and she is actually really good. I wonder whatever happened to her. Sylvia?
Joanna Ng 1990 Skate Canada

Not sure if this link will work for you cause I you tubed it from my iPhone.. You should find it easily though. Enjoy!
^^ Thanks for the update on what happened to Joanna Ng during and after her competitive career!
I'll never call Frank or USFSA fuddy duddy again! Who choreographed Ng's program - did she do it herself?
^^ At the age of 12, I would be surprised if Ng choreographed it herself. Quite interesting all the richness and forgotten facts/ performances from figure skating's past.
I wonder if Kwan was inspired by Ng to take her senior test early (w/o Frank's knowledge) and debut at Senior Nationals at the age of 12?
NVM-early in her career she tried a decent flip, an okay toe and a good sal nd toe out of footwork at the Olympic Festival the next year. I think she was mostly overshadowed and between by Lisa Ervin and by the end of her career puberty hit her and toe was all she had.
