One last question. I would like to know who did the choreographies for the Short Dance and the Free Dance, as Paola Mezzadri usually takes care of this aspect, while you have been hired in the first place as a technical coach.
Igor Shpilband: I did the entire choreography for the Free Dance, while Paola choreographed the Short Dance.
Thanks and hmmm It's weird to explain but knowing that he choreographed that makes me less impressed with the FD. Probably because of all the posts I read about how Igor would have been the better choice over Marina for better programs and I don´t feel that program is unique or outstanding. It does however explain why some movements reminded me of Tessa and Meryl.
I've always tried to resist thinking the worst of Igor...( Why did I bother ? )
I tried to think he couldn't have encouraged the C/B pairing ,which left Emily high and dry ( and IMO has far less potential than S/B had )...
Tried to refrain from taking sides over the split ... But I have to say this seems petty and vindictive.
I feel sorry for all the skaters .
Coaches will be OK, they have a lot off years of coaching ahead of them. But some skaters have only 2 years ahead.
Does anyone think Scott's injury might have given them time to work on another FD? I hope this isn't a stupid question, but if you think it is, then ignore it .

ETA: Oops, I was thinking more in the lines of changing the music, as was speculated above, not the original opera versus Shchedrin ballet suite. Hope that was just an error, just like the nonupdate of the coaches entry.

As for Tessa and Scott's FD - I too think that they haven't thought about changing their FD if they really like it.
I think we will never found who was the first. But i think this was V-M, just because this was idea for SD.
Whoa, at the new FSU layout!
