Indeed. Have at it and post one of your favorites...
ETA - Genius Navka medley from The Ice Age - Cup of Pros via YouTube LarsBond (2012)
Most programs by Beacom, even during his competition years.This is the '84 LP at Canadian Nationals:
More from Toller, 1988:
...and here's a show program from Gary Beacom circa 1992 (?)
Music: I'm Your Man (Leonard Cohen)
One of my favorite Toller performances, Pagliacci, Moscow News Exhibition (1975)
On this footage there is some commentary from Toller, and at the end, a partial clip from a Canadian show.
Alexei Tikhonov is the star here, a comedic piece voiding with Navka in The Ice Age - Cup of Pros (2012, Episode 3)...
Navka+Tikhonov, Rhumba (2012)
Choreography: Ilya Averbukh
Of course, I love Toller, and Gary Beacom, but we should not forget Robert Wagenhoffer!
1994 COI Roy Orbison's Crying
1999 Ice Fantastic - One Rock & Roll Too Many
Thank you, Doris!
I hadn't seen that performance by Robert Wagenhoffer.
It dates from not too long before his untimely passing.
sbanet, that performance of Pagliacci you posted was certainly one the first of that iconic program.
Toller was a specially invited guest at the EX.
Love it, especially that one-handed flip!
One lost performance I've been searching for is Gary Beacom, skating entirely to recorded birdsongs. I've heard of this performance, but never seen it.
Also, although I have seen Gary's performance with Gia Guddat with skate on their hands before, it isn't on youtube now, and I'd love to see it again!.
Nelli Zhiganshina + Alexander Gazsi - "Symphonie"
Oberstdorf Gala (2011)
Femme fatale Drobiazko demands to have go at adagio pairs, so Andrei takes her for quite a ride...
Margarita Drobiazko + Andrei Khvalko James Bond s/t, Shirley Bassey "Goldfinger"
The Ice Age - Cup of Pros, Episode 3 (2012)
I remember this one! Not sure when or where though.
Here's a German recording of it, from the 1996 EISGALA in Mainz Gary Beacom + Gia Guddat
A competition piece, but even with the slightly botched lift, it's pretty enough (and voidy enough) to be included here...
Christina Beier + William Beier (GER) Hawaiian OD (2010)
Coaches: Rene Lohse, Martin Skotnicky; Choreographer: Jutta Deutschland
This one is fun from Shawn Sawyer. Love what he does with the briefcase.
Good one. I <3 Shawn Sawyer, thanks!
Thank you! That is one wild & crazy routine, for sure.
Btw, the Duchesnay's TV special based on The Planets by Holst, which included skating, ballet and swimming probably qualifies as voidy
and Torvill & Dean's Six Gestures (Bach Cello Suites) with Yo Yo Ma
and Rahkamo & Kokko skating in the official video of Enigma's Beyond the Invisible
is a favorite of mine, and beyond voidy.
Wow thanks, never seen this one before. Although I was at Simon Reed claiming he'd never seen Shawn before, even though he commentated on him at the 2006 Olympics.
Stanick Jeannette 2001 Worlds sp:
Thanks Prancer. I'm astounded that Kurt and Dick actually read message boards.
I hadn't seen that routine of Shawn Sawyer's before! Thank you!
Here's some other retro routines that I found memorable:
Debi Thomas & Vladimir Kotin 1986 Goodwill Games Billy Jean EX
At the time, this routine seemed the very spirit of Goodwill.
Igor Bobrin 1981 Worlds EX A Cowboy's Work is Never Done
Tonya Harding 1987 NHK When You Wish Upon a Star EX
Klimova & Ponomarenko 1987 EX Worlds Warming Up for the Ballet
Too bad Engi & Toth's Muppet Movie EX is not on youtube. They did it in full Kermie & Miss Piggy outfits!
There is another Gary/Gia routine to "I Think I'm losin' my marbles" by Mendelsohn Joe which predates this. If I recall correctly, they were in black and white outfits and had skates onhands and feet. I think they did it at a Sun Valley show as well as other places. I used to have it on tape but can no longer play it so sorry, I can'y post it!
L4 voids, +3 GOE, thanks!
and here is one of my favorite Rahkamo+Kokko show programs...
Art on Ice, honoring Montserrat Caballé (1997)
Music: Hijo de la luna by Mecano
Mine, as well.
Rahkamo and Kokko trained with Torvill and Dean in the early years of their career.
They had first-hand knowledge, gained from the master!
Ah the Finns. Remember their Apache number?
LOVE it!! As a Shawn uber, I was pleasantly surprised to find a program I hadn't seen!! Well, I've seen the SOI version but that seems to be a little different.
Beautiful outdoor setting, (Hotel de Ville, early 2007?)
Tenue de soirée Courchevel, 2008
Dzhigurda, bringing the crazy...
Marina+1, skating w/Nikita and some guy named Gwendal - Russia, November 2008
Igor Bobrin rockin' the Paganini, with on-ice interview/performance clip from Star Ice - Russia (2008). This number also features "Bobrina+Bukin" w/ the revue skaters...
and a mental La Cumparsita tango from Bestemianova+Bukin via Dancing on Ice Russia (2006).
