    Disson Skating pairs with ABC in the fall of 2014/2015

    The final air dates will be announced at a later date. I'm hoping there will be more coverage since the shows will be aired on ABC.

    Thanks for the link Angie.

    I have not cared for show skating for years, and that's not likely to change. I wish they would show competitions instead of all the show skating. There must be a market for it if they are showing it though.

    Thanks so much for those links and for adding your other link in GSD for the Family Skating Tribute, Sylvia!

    Vash, I've watched and taped several of the Disson shows over the years, especially around the holidays. I've always liked most Disson shows because they have a good variety of skaters that perform.

    The skating shows are always so cheesy, that I cringe every time I watch them. However, I do enjoy watching Family Skating Tribute, not because of the skating, but because of the children of the skaters.

    Sylvia, you're a treasure trove of info!

    Looking very much forward to attending the Family Skating Tribute @ PSU for the adult skating cast (and seeing the all adorable kids - some of whom actually can skate well - Gabby Marvaldi, Liza Kulik, ...)

    As was posted by TanithandBen fan in the Davis/White thread, it seems that Disson has added a 5th show -- pretty sure this will be one with ballroom dance. Here's the "announcement of an announcement."

    There is a write up of the show in the latest issue of International Figure Skating with some details. Ballroom - with stars from DWTS as well as skaters.

    How can there be "Unforgettable Moments of Love on Ice" if Brian Joubert, Morgan Cipres and I weren't invited to perform?

    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    "Shall We Dance on Ice" has just been announced for Dec. 16 in Bloomington, Ill. Here's the Facebook link, but I'm not certain whether everyone will be able to see it, so I'll paste the text below.

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...1882236&type=1

    "NEWS: Announcing Shall We Dance on Ice, headlined by Meryl Davis and Charlie White, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Sharna Burgess at US Cellular Coliseum on December 16!

    Joining them will be Tanith Belbin & Ben Agosto, Marina Anissina & Gwendal Peizerat, Marie-France Dubreuil & Patrice Lauzon, Sinead Kerr & John Kerr, Naomi Lang & Peter Tchernyshev Official Fanpage, KIm Navarro & Brent Bommentre, and new team Isabella Tobias & Ilia Tkachenko!

    More dancers will be named later, and the show will be hosted by Kristi Yamaguchi & Edward Villella!

    Stay tuned for more information on our website!"

    ETA: Sorry, didn't see that Sylvia had posted this in GSD.
