    Before they became a top-tier ice dance team, Denkova & Staviski were quite voidy.

    2001 Worlds FD (same as above but with some changes - they kept it because they couldn't perform at the 2000 Worlds due to Albena's accident which hospitalized her)

    This 1999 Sarabande FD is what made me a DenStas fan. , even now, one of my favorite FDs from anyone, ever.

    Choreographer: Sergei Petukhov

    For anyone who doesn't realize it. that is the "lost" T and D program; thought never to be seen, as it wasn't recorded for Broadcast.
    This performance apparently was privately filmed due to the presence of Phillp Glass, the composer of "Akhnaten".

    Did anyone watch the Progressive Skating and Gymnastics Spectacular? It was super voidy, start to finish. From Catalina Ponor's "Leave your hat on" routine, to Kurt Browning's noir routine. It was interesting but weird.

    I would loosely equate it to transcendent. It comes from something Dean said referring to skaters getting so into the skating and the music and the choreo that it is as though they are skating in a void, as though the rules and judges are not there.

    I'll nominate this long-time favorite, Robin Cousins Satan Takes a Holiday from World Pros (1984 or 85, I think).

    I used to go to this pro competition nearly every year and the house exploded after this one like I've rarely heard. (You can't really hear it on the video.)

    That performance is from the 1985 World Challenge of Champions EX, Paris.

    His performance in Landover, at the World Professional Championships was even better, IMO.
    Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be available on YouTube.

    Anyway, my picks are Allen Schramm, Gary Beacom, and the Duchesnays.
    TOLLER = definition of voidy.

    Whilst Voidy programs are no doubt 'ARTISTIQUE' in Toller Cranston fashion. I'd like to think Voids have expanded over the years to account for a number of different factors:

    Here is my dictionary:
    The Uber Void: DRAMTIC, over the top choreography that is expressed with uber oomph, a costume that makes Johnny Weir look tame and a music cut that makes you feel like you might be on acid:
    Enter Toller Cranston with a disco version of Firebird OTT CH that he kicks the shit out of..

    The Originality Void: Originality demonstrated through choreography, Jumping style or MITF. Every now and then a skater comes along and does something that has never been done....like, say, pretend to be a jewel thief who pulls a diamond bracelet out half way through the program and includes a police chase. Sometimes the originality void even demonstrates teknik!!

    Other voids include any of the above elements and the occasional non teknik performance that manages to hold your attention despite the fact that the person can barely skate! Accordingly:
    The Mad Music Void usually accompanied by a headband of some sort and relative no teknik

    The OES VOID: Usually comes with a voidy style (see pink hair and nose piercings), an element of inappropriateness (see crotch grabbing brother and sister), original verging on ridiculous CH, obligatory WTF music and NO TEKNIK

    Slutty Voids: Because sex sells. Slutty in CH, Costume and IN...
    The Vulgar void Lick It strips half way through and bends over backwards to show her arse to the judges ...

    The Unexplained Void: It could be the black bra, it could be the footballer turned skater, it could be the fact that they can barely skate but are still compelling, whatever it is, it's freaking Voidy!

    Voidy Personality Traits Babs' Death Stare at the end of the program!
    Anne Sophie Calvez' inability to look anything more than GRIM in the K&C
    My LAAAACE is Broke WAAAAAH

    Because Olga Bestandigova managed to be voidy in 2000 with her brother, retired from the sport and came back last year to be completely voidy again for completely different reasons. I would like to officially announce her as the voidiest skater of all time. Thank you and goodnight!
