    The Dance Hall 9: Bring the Bling or No Beijing 2021-2022

    Not Martha Graham specifically, but of course V/M's Carmen drew extensively on modern dance vocabulary (the twizzles even reference the Horton technique's lateral T) and I interviewed a few off-ice sources on the subject back in the day about the challenges involved in the genre's translation to...

    USFS' Champs Camp 2021

    It's also a time for them to bank shareable media for use throughout the season, which is more of a social media era than mainstream media era concern.

    Also weird about these rumors (they're probably all true though, the skating news you never want typically is) is Prelude in E minor for H/B when C/B skated to that their first season, albeit the Gerry Mulligan version.

If teams of that prominence were willing to tackle it the first time around, I don't see why it should be all that daunting now...
