Nancy Kerrigan wasted a good opportunity to do a full on vogue demonstration...
Fox on Ice (1994)
If Stephane does it, I approve. At least I think it worked very well for this program--created and sustained a mood and was not excessive. And it didn't just appear every minute for an obvious rest break mid-program.
BARK LESS. WAG MORE.
Isn't that what plushenko has been doing for years?
It counts towards PE and IN if it's done properly and in time and in character of the music.
I would deduct on TR and CH, however, if there's too much of it because you should be skating, not standing in place. Stopping and standing still isn't exactly a very difficult skill to master.

Well, when Amodio is vogueing, my reaction is that he's too lazy to put real choreography.
So it depends. I thought it worked very well in Kostner's Bolero, because it fit the style of the choreography, it built with the music, and drew you in. ALSO, it was some innovative vogueing, not stuff we've seen before.
During Kwan's later years where she just skated around from element to element, I WISHED she'd pose more and express more character in the music. I mean I'm sure it was more of an athletic achievement to be in constant motion, but meh.
