    ISU to evaluate feasibility of 2020-21 skating season

    Technically I don't believe IAM has a say in any GP invitations (although I suspect they have had influence in the past). Federations invite teams in conjunction with rankings I believe. Now this year every rule is thrown out the window so not sure how any event is going to be run or if they...

    ISU to evaluate feasibility of 2020-21 skating season

    I found it interesting in the recent interview with Romain that he stated... “The French have to compete in France, the Canadians in Canada, the three U.S. teams compete at Skate America,” Haguenauer said. “We also have two teams in China which we coach every day by Zoom. We do two hours every...

    2020/2021 Canadian Ice Dance: News and Updates

    I would have thought most teams would keep their short and free dances this year or if they get new ones, they would keep that for Olympic year. I usually hate when teams keep a program, but totally understand it this year. I suspect those who keep their programs will tweak or adjust features...

    2020 Grand Prix series thread

    I think part of the benefit for a federation hosting a GP event is so that their country's skaters can have the spotlight and set themselves up as top contenders at the world/4CC/European competitions. If say for the dance event, Skate Canada were to "allow" all IAM teams to compete at their...

    Soucisse & Firus Cheer Thread!

    Personal opinion - I think that S&F lost confidence the moment the Danish team decided to skate for Canada. Without even skating one competition for Canada, Skate Canada invited them to the National Training Camp that September - SC typically only invites teams that have GPs or on National team...

    Canadian Ice Dance 2019/2020 season: News and Updates

    It does look like there may be a Junior skate off at Bavarian open - there was a Carol Lane tweet recently that indicated Ba/Be and L/R and her novice team going there. Or maybe just extra experience for the teams as I don't see an official competitors list on the ISU website

    Canadian Ice Dance 2019/2020 season: News and Updates

    Since there are no other competitions for juniors I wonder why they won’t name the other two spots. I truly think it should be the two B/Bs but not sure what criteria they would be waiting for

    U.S. Ice Dance 2019-20 season news & updates

    There is a Gadbois Insta Story of Simulation day. JL is at the boards it appears doing video. I don’t see Kaitlin, but maybe this is just for Canadian teams and he’s helping out?

    Gilles and Poirier Cheer Thread

    I love how they included a couple of nods to Vincent in their free dance in the twizzles and their choreo step sequence! I also think they keep their quirk in the rhythm dance so while growing in their maturity as a team, they still know how to keep their roots!

    Rock the Rink 2019 (Virtue/Moir, Chan, Stojko, Osmond, Kostner, Abbott)

    I"m looking at tickets now and there are some close to the rink (not on floor), but I'm wondering - do they take down the hockey glass and any netting? Just wondering if better to be higher up or closer to rink?

    Rock the Rink 2019 (Virtue/Moir, Chan, Stojko, Osmond, Kostner, Abbott)

    Considering buying tickets, but how long is the opening "concert" and is it just 100% the band playing? Just wondering when the skating actually starts and how long the skating show is? Thanks

    Who chooses the teams? Just wondering why team North America is all Americans and no Canadians?
