    Jenny Kirk skated to "Die Fledermaus" @ 2003 Skate America (and brought down the house). Todd Eldredge skated to it in the early 1990's (as a short program?).

    Meryl & Charlie skated to "Die Fledermaus" last season.

    Bechke & Petrov had skated to the Blue Danube in a pro competition but I can't find a yt link for it.

    The Blue Danube and Die Fledermaus seem to be the most popular Strauss music for skating (by ANY Strauss)

    I know that some ice dance teams skated to Radetzky March as part of their OD a few years ago, but I can't remember the year and who those ice dancers were. May be someone can help. I love B&S's Radetzky March. It really showcases their speed, power, unison, etc.

    Richard Strauss and Johann Strauss don't share anything in common besides their last name...

    And thanks to Moskvina's lack of vision for K/S, they skated to it in 2010 as well.

    When I was a preliminary-level skater, in the summer of '75 I attended a rink skating school that offered a class in artistry or music interpretation or something like that, along with all the patch and freestyle sessions (and ice dance, which I skipped).

    I specifically remember being given that music to skate to, with big arm movements on the big chords at the beginning.
