    Gracie Gold's new short program

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4idjE...ature=youtu.be


    i like it. Her arms are more focused in their movements, and the music works.

    Source credit goes to marysy in the Legends show thread.

    Music is from the 2nd (Adagio) and 3rd movements of Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor.

    Earlier discussion of the program can be found here: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...=1#post4077751

    Love the new program! Wouldn't it be something if they allowed a combination retry at the Olympics? lol

    I definitely see improvement in Gracie's skating. Hopefully she kicks butt at Nationals.

    That's great! I like the new SP a lot and it looks very natural for Gracie.

    I think the first program had more interesting transitions, but she seems much more calm and comfortable with this program. The last third could really be quite stirring, the speed in the final spin was very impressive. Can't wait to see it on a full size rink at Nats.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I would have loved for Gracie to get this out in front of an international judging panel before Nationals but it really does have possibilities - and yes she seems much more comfortable with this.

    MUCH better, lot of potential here, and love the dress.

    Just hope she lands the jumps because that's what has gotten her to where she is at the moment. I just hope she hasn't slacked off on training her jumps as she puts more effort into other elements of her skating.

    Love Gracie's new short! I think Lori has done another amazing job selecting the music and choreographing a short that will I think help Gracie win nationals this year. I heard Josiane Lamond, who used to make Joannie's costumes, made Gracie's. Excellent job!

    I thought Gracie's SP dress was borrowed from her sister?

    I really like Gracie's new short and it looks like she has been doing her homework. She looks calmer and feels the music much better. I love her hair and costume too. I hope she skates both her programs extremely well at Nationals.

    Told ya! This was the highlight program from the current eligible skaters who appeared in Legends. GG is now a totally different -- smoother and more classical -- skater. Oh, if only there were time for Lori Nichol to prepare a new LP, too (or seriously tweak the existing one).

    Maybe Josiane makes Carly's dresses, too--?

    Maybe that's not her new dress then. My mistake. I heard from a source that her new dress was being made by Josiane. I had not seen this dress before so I thought that was it. Looking forward to seeing the new dress then.

    I like the new SP. She has really improved in her presentation. And if a calmer program helps her to deliver the technical content more successfully, then all the better!

    Yah, that jump combination wasn't clean, and that was with the retake..........

    Do you have anything positive to say about the rest of the program?

    All that matters in the short is the jumps, so opinions on artistry etc. aren't very relevant.....
