    Black is a very cool color!!! And it makes you look thinner!! But sometimes it can work against you (Ex: Tutktamysheva). And too much black can be boring/uninteresting.

    Or

    (Like I said before) the Olympic season when they skated to: ‘Valse Sentimentale’/’The Blue Danube’ in the free skate and I don’t count the 2008-2009 exhibitions since they aren’t judged.



    At any rate… I think a change is good for B&S otherwise they probably wouldn't be doing it.
    Well, if you read my post carefully, you may notice that I said that the previous season (now is 2013-2014, so the previous season is obviously 2012-2013) they were supposed to skate for their SP to Cats but changed it last minutes to third version of their waltz. Third version because they have already used one season the same music for exhibition and then another season for FS. Is there anything on this you disagree with? (I don't care whether you count or don't count exhibition, the bottom line is that they have used that music for two seasons already)

    I found their FD more interesting than the one of S&Z.
    Couldn't see the vídeo of Elena and Nikita. There is a message saying that the vídeo doesn't exist.

    I'm not sure you know what season you're in, that may be the problem.

    This wiki page has a list of K/S music, that may help you.

    You have to scroll down to find it. There's a lot of info on the page.

    OMG, I don't know what you two are arguing about but last year (2012/2013) K/S had a SP to 'Cats'. They skated it at one of the closed rentals and shortly afterwards changed it (disapproval from the feds?) to whatever it was they skated to (don't know, not a fan). It was talked about on the Russian forums last yr (saying it was a recycled program, etc).

    That is not the "real" costume, Elena said it was left over from an exhibition they were going to skate over the summer, but never did in the end.

    Their lifts are great, unusual ones, but aside them there's nothing special in this routine.
    Hope they'll change the costumes.

    While it not be great for or intended for that program, it's a beautiful dress. I wish the program didn't look so frenetic, though. It's not very musical, at least at this stage: they're skating through a lot of the music.

    I don't think it is a dress. It is dancers wrap skirt. A lot of skating shops sell that. She used it with some body suit because this skirt you tie around you and it doesn't have knickers sewn in.

    It looks a lot like she is wearing this leotard: http://www.discountdance.com/dancewe...&SID=521907800 with a wrap skirt. (Maybe not that exact leotard, but close enough that if anyone wants to 'go' as her for Halloween you have a match.)

    Shall we begin a dispute on the definition of the usual lift, so we can thus qualify the unusual ones?
    OK, I'll put it the other way: I liked the lifts in their program. This is my personal opinion.

    (Artur Gachinski) No wonder, as his choreographer Juri Smekalov danced the role of Vronski in the Anna Karenina ballet. So you probably saw Smekalov dancing?

    More on Smekalov here on the Mariinski Theatre's website: http://www.mariinsky.ru/company/ball...yuri_smekalov/

    I really liked Gachinski's program the first time I saw it during the training camp in Italy. I believe it has huge potential.

    Elena T.'s LP has loads of potential. Her body language is a big troubling in that run through, but she is ripping most of those jumps off like they are nothing. Can't wait for Finlandia!

    I still can't deal with the way that IK's FD music ends. It is completely artificial. It seems like it should build up but suddenly it ends instead of having the part where the black swan shows her true colors and the prince realizes what has happened.
