    Just returned from the CSOI show and Kaetlyn was just terrific. She did skate as a guest skater in Calgary last year and I would have to say the improvement in her is noteworthy. She definitely held her own in all the group numbers and looked to be having the time of her life. I loved both of her solo numbers - showed different sides of her and I thought were both very entertaining. She did not have her leg wrapped - at least that I could see - and hit all of her jumps solid and powerful - maybe doubled one. Her spins were strong and centred. She has a natural presence on the ice - something that many skaters work years for, and she plays very well to the audience. I know she is an Alberta girl - granted an import - but she got great response.

    She was born in NL- but the family moved to Alberta some years ago.

    Yes, I know she was not born in Alberta but lives and trains in Edmonton now. Sorry if I didn't make that clear.

    I agree puglover. Kaetlyn has a natural presence on ice.

    A fan posted part of her CSOI 'Over the rainbow' program.

    Nice pix of Kaetlyn.

    According to twitter, Kaetlyn has started work on her new SP choreographed by Lance Vipond. No word on the music that I've seen, but I'm glad she stuck with Lance!

    Can't wait to see her new programs. Is she keeping her last season's LP?

    Word I'm hearing is Lance Vipond for the SP and Pasquale Camerlengo for the LP. I hear Kaetlyn is on the ice every morning at West Edmonton Mall doing choreography if anyone is in the area

    Camerlengo... nice. I hope she does a fiery Tango or sultry Flamenco style. She has the pizazz for it! Cannot recall whether she has done a Tango yet.

    I'd actually like to see something more lyrical from her, lest she becomes one note

    Me too but I think she may have to ease into that style. Her personality is more geared to the fiery. Would be nice if her short could be like that and she could be comfortable in her long where she tends to have problems. I like Camerlongo who can really combine the two - the lyrical and the dramatic. Love what he did for Dai . Time will tell what he does for Kaetlyn.

    One of her exhibition numbers to "Over the Rainbow" was lovely. Quite a departure from the other program in costume, music, movement and expression. I think she could definitely do something more lyrical for a competitive program - however - not as many skaters can pull off the sassy as well as Kaetlyn so it has gotten her noticed. Having seen her live now a number of times, she really commands the ice which is a huge benefit.

    I agree. Kaetlyn has lots of personality on ice. She would fare well with a fiery program, and I like Camerlengo programs. So excited ... Lance and Camerlengo and Kaetlyn.

    New programs! Very pleased to hear Kaetlyn has decided to go with Camerlengo for her LP. Overall I find his programs quite sophisticated, which will be great for her at this point in her development. Very much looking forward to seeing what they can create together. I just hope there are plans to include a 3-3 this year. And as always, looking forward to checking out her new SP. Lance Vipond is so creative.

    Do you find her programs redundant?

    IDK...to me she stands out from the others by what she chooses to do. I find most of the other ladies pretty redundant. I hope she skates to music and has programs she comfortable with, but I think she could "sell" just about anything. She's got that showmanship down pat even when she screws up her program, she can stll sell it.

    That is probably why her choreographers give her the Sassy Sultry programs (Vipond, Bourne, were there others?). They are attempting to maximize her exposure with what she does well. A lot of skaters do lyrical skating. However when you are trying to establish yourself, it may be best to stand-out, not blend-in. I expect she will eventually widen her repertoire of styles when they feel it is time.

    I agree but I think she has to begin the widening process. In some ways I think KO is like Katerina Witt - very much an IT girl. Her warmth and charming smile can bring a lot of sunshine into her program.
