In Piper's stories, you can see Carol Lane's teams celebrating the end of the first week of summer training:

Incidentally, Carolane and Shane recently announced a Tina Turner/Donna Summer/Barbra Streisand medley for their short (so I'm thinking disco!) and a Charles Aznavour program for their free (scroll down):

It's official that Hannah & Ye are switching to represent Korea (which ironically was misunderstood as the country they were representing when the partnership was initially announced two years ago).

A good move for them, especially since I think they might not even have gotten a JGP spot this year because Canada's total got slashed badly based on 2020 Junior Worlds.

Can someone please tell me what time the FD starts today? Some of the pages on the site aren't coming up for me and I can't see the schedules.

Courchevel II assignments are up. Miku & Tyler get an extra week in France, as they're doing back-to-back events in the same location, this time joined by Ben Khelifa/Zhu, in their international debut.

Having them skate back-to-back will also make the schedule for the remaining five events a bit more tightly packed for the other top teams.

Noteworthy that so far Canada is getting two dance spots per event, despite finishing fifth among nations at 2020 Junior Worlds. That was to be hoped for, given that Georgia isn't exactly a dance powerhouse, but it's bearing out so far.

Researching the music for Nadiia & Peter's program to identify it properly gave me a much better understanding of what that program is about (it's two Russian folk songs about a soldier and his girl back home).
Bashynska/Beaumont's program music is posted on the IDE website (scroll down): https://www.icedanceelite.ca/new-page
With the next season approaching we are working hard in preparation for any future competitions we’re hoping have. We are happy to announce that our RD we will be to “Chances Are” and “Peppermint twist”. It’s a very fun and lively program with lots of character. For our FD, we decided on a folk program. It will be to music from “Blue Shawl” tied with Maria Lazareva’s interpretation of “Katyusha”.

Happy Birthday to the best partner ever “or at least the best most of the time” hahaha. Cannot believe it has been 4 years since the beginning of our partnership. We’ve grown to know each other so much more and I’m so happy to keep on growing together till the end 🤷🏼‍♀️! This picture is a throwback picture from the first summer camp in @icedanceelite.sfsc we look like such a babies. 🥰🙈

Can I ask that links be provided along with embedded videos, so that if the video won't show up for some of us, as sometimes happens to me, at least the link will? Many thanks!

All of it, everything is hitting the fan just about now. Maybe I need to go watch the Olympics.
