12+ minute video uploaded on May 7, 2024 by [Figure Skating Channel Kiss and Cry Plus | Asahi Shimbun, 4years.]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jA1c-mvhnY

The ice show "Prince Ice World 2024-2025 Yokohama Performance" was held for 6 days from April 27th to May 5th for a total of 12 performances. Guest skaters including the Prince Ice World Team and 2018 PyeongChang Olympic silver medalist Shoma Uno (Toyota Motor Corporation) captivated the audience. Here is a video of the May 3rd performance. (Note: I assume the original audio of the program excerpts was not used due to avoid potential music copyright issues?)

■Programs skated by athletes at the performance on May 3rd (in order of appearance)
Shun Sato “Rise”
Yoshio Miura “Nemesis”
Nobunari Oda “Momotaro”
Yuma Kagiyama “Werther” (morning performance) / “The Sound of Silence” (afternoon performance)
Shoma Uno “Fantasy for violin and orchestra”

▼Channel overview
We will be uploading various videos of figure skating on and off ice. We are also planning a "Naru's Room" starring former Olympic pair player Narumi Takahashi, a long interview with athletes practicing, and a talk live with guests! In the 2022-23 season, we would like to improve our content and deliver the appeal of figure skating to even more fans. I hope we can continue to grow together with our fans. Please subscribe to our channel.

The original source for the first X video embedded in the post above is an Instagram story clip by Ukraine's Anastasiia Arkhypova (https://www.instagram.com/ms_nastya.arkhypova) - this is her 3rd consecutive appearance with the Fantasy on Ice ensemble. :)

Sources for the 2nd X video are Gabriella Papadakis' Insta story clip of rehearsal with Jeff Buttle and Tiffany Zahorski's Insta story clip of the "yummy snacks" provided to the skaters (eta that Tiffany's latest story is captioned "Dress fitting today").

Papadakis shared an Instagram story pic of Angelina Kuchvalska, Sofia Sforza (both were in last year's ensemble) and Nobahar Dadui (new addition this year?).

ETA - thanks for the 5+ minute Asahi TV practice footage video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RDonj7jS3w) - Harley Windsor and Colin Grafton (in white sweatshirt) are both new to the ensemble this year.

One Piece on Ice got all the original skaters back to re-run Alabasta, including Kazuki Tomono, Koshiro Shimada, Rinka Watanabe and Nobunari Oda, who will be competing this fall. They must have really loved this show last time.

Fantasy On Ice (FaOI) 2024
The first show was done.

Yuzuru Hanyu skated to Danny Boy and Meteor (a song from the popular animation, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED sung by Takanori Nishikawa (T.M.Revolution).

Rio Nakata skated his new SP, Aroul,Uccen.

Rena Uezono skated her new SP, Voila.

Adam Shao Him Fa skated his new program (that depicts the life of Vincent van Gogh), which impressed many Japanese fans with its intricate choreography (by Benoit Richaud).

The show will be broadcast tomorrow so hopefully we will know more about the programs (and videos!).
