To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
Here are the YT channels where Senior and Junior open/test skate videos are uploaded:

Very nice of them to put it on youtube! I don't know what we would do without internet. We would have to wait another 2 months!
IIRC, Sotnikova already used this music in her first Junior season. Is she now just recycling the old program?

but its a different music arrangement from the one one in her JGP music
almost no similarity with the sound beat
Kovtun's SP music and choreo remind me of Lobacheva/Averbukh's original dance from 2002. Did Averbukh choreograph this program for Maxim? Anyway, I think he has a strong SP and his movement looks more nuanced now than it did last season.
Loved Sotnikova's Carmen.
Where are all of Morozov's skaters?
It's just leonova and I/k or did voronov leave.
Sotnikova skated to that FS music before? It must have caused some kind of permanent hearing damage that she would use it again.
Peter Tchernyshev choreographed Kovtun's programs? And there is that much two footed skating in them?
I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.
And Takahashi but he wouldn't be at Russian test skate
oh my god. i am absolutely in love with bobrova/solovie's free dance. and that at this moment of the season. can't wait of looking forward hoe this program will develop. gorgeous work!
Have I&K ever skated their full programs at the test skate? I know they didn't last year, and the year before they skated their FD to different music. I don't remember if they showed up when they were with Zhulin. IMO it's unacceptable for them not to be showing up ready by now considering they always struggle on the GP. They are just not the types to get a late start but then show up in shape at competitions. B&S are usually one of the first ice dancers to show their programs, even internationally.
Really curious to see Stepanova/Bukin now.
thanks for the videos, by the way.
don't know what to think of monko/khaliavins free dance.
i really likes this couple but i don't know if this is the right vehicle for them. let's see how it will develop thoughout the season?
was volchkovas group at the test skates? i so badly want to see anything of biryukova. any updates on her? or better-videos?
