    O'Brien/Merriman's programs are basically everything I am. I loved their circus program so I'm glad they're keeping it.

    According to tweets, Takahiko Kozuka's new SP is Unsquare Dance, choreographed by Shae-Lynn Bourne. He is performing the program at Prince Ice World show this weekend.

    I'm not going to get into specifics, but it's certainly frozen over.

    Oooh, nice choice for him. I've been hoping someone someday would use that piece and Kozuka is perfect for it.

    Nam Nguyen used it last year although I realize he's not an elite skater. Yes good choice though.

    Sing, Sing, Sing sounds meh, a Bob Fosse theme sounds interesting. We'll see soon enough which it is, I guess...

    (re the topic above: I recall a lot of people landing jumps in practice that they never managed successfully in competition )
    l: I was expecting them to use a french artist. I have a feeling there will be alot of Sing Sing Sing this season.

    Fosse's choreography for Sing Sing Sing is a masterpiece. Enjoy:

    Misha Ge (UZB) debuted his SP to Albinoni's "Adagio in G Minor" at a competition in Nanjing, China this past weekend - here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fW-R-UOcakE

    Unfortunately my hatred for Sing, Sing, Sing is going to outweigh the choreography, no matter how good it is.

    Gracie Gold reveals in her latest blog post that Marina Zoueva choreographed her SP to Gershwin's "Three Preludes": http://www.teamusa.org/Team-USA-Wint...-Season-Begins
    ... Gershwin composed it in 1926 and it has a jazzy feel to it. Although I felt hesitant about it in the beginning, the more we played with it, the “righter” it felt to me. The program sort of “took on a life of its own” and carried us along with it. I absolutely love it! The choreography is amazing. It’s sensual and playful at the same time. I feel a bit “cat-like” while I’m performing it. Marina has had me working with an array of top notch dance instructors on my visits. Their areas of expertise range from classical ballet to modern dance. This program definitely has a modern dance flavor.
    (Zoueva choreographed a pro number for Katia Gordeeva to a violin version of "Three Preludes" that she performed on the 1997-98 Stars on Ice tour.)

    It must be a requirement that all American lady skaters skate to Gershwin at some point. Even Kwan did.

    Oh god, sensual?

    When did Kwan skate to Gerswin? I don't remember. I actually don't remember a lot of ladies skating to Gershwin much.

    ETA: It looks like she skated to Gershwin in 1992. No wonder I didn't remember it. I don't really remember that many programs set to Gershwin from the women other than Kim's though.

    Emily Hughes, Mirai Nagasu, Rachael Flatt, and Agnes Zawadzki are the other US ladies I can think of right now.

    No wonder I couldn't think of any. All these ladies are post-Torino. I was going through my separation with skating days during that time.

    Love three preludes. Very exciting music with a lot of opportunities for some original and inventive choreography. Gordeeva's 3 preludes is one of my favourites of all her solo programs so I'm hopeful for a great program here. On paper this is very promising.

    I like these for her. The SP sounds promising and while R&J is hardly original, I think it suits her style and intensity.

    Is "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" the only Pink Floyd song skaters/choreographers know?


    It's like the "go to" song for skaters who want to look more contemporary, even though it's like almost 40 years old. However, skating does tend to be way behind the times when it comes to these sorts of things (among other things).
