    Cappellini/Lanotte's primary coach in Italy is Paola Mezzadri.

    Yura Min/Tim Koleto (KOR) are also in Shpilband's group in Novi, along with 2 new U.S. junior teams, Christina Carreira/Anthony Ponomarenko and Elliana Pogrebinsky/Alex Benoit, and 1 new Canadian junior team, Christina Penkov/Aaron Chapplain. USA's junior/JGP team of Chloe Lewis/Logan Bye also work with him part-time.

    ETA: Looks like Holly Moore/Daniel Klaber (2014 U.S. Junior pewter medalists and still JGP-eligible this year) recently have switched to Shpilband as well: http://instagram.com/p/p_8XSAyj-i/

    Florant Amodio is also training there (at least part time). He is working with Fabian and his French coaches. He is back in France until July 22.

    So he's all Dun then?
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    I am a huuuuuuge Klimova/Ponamarenko fan and now by association, an Anthony Ponamarenko fan! I have to admit I'm still sad he's split with Sarah Feng - she was so, so good I thought, and I wish her the best in singles, but I was really intrigued by her and Anthony. She might have even been the bigger potential star... anyway, I am still excited to see Anthony's new partner. Is there a chance they'll head out onto the JGP this year?

    There is also 80's Friday video. They sure have fun there. Igor knows how to work hard, but likes to have fun with them too.

    Their TES has clearly improved with them hitting higher levels more consistently but they have lost a lot of their voidiness. And this represents Shpilband's approach really well.

    I wish they could stay with him as their primary coach but get an outside choreographer. Or perhaps now that Bourzat is there, he can come up with something crazy for them?

    Actually his last name is pronounced not like "done", but more like "June" just with a "D' instead of J.

    Yes! I'm not sure what/ how much of a role Fabian will have at first, but I hope he gets to work on choreo. I think he'll be excellent at it! I'm hoping at least some of the teams will have interesting/ unique FDs.
