    Congratulations to Madison & Evan on winning the Professional Skaters Association's EDI Award for Best Performance at 2017 Nationals!
    The award is based on the "total performance" with an eye to costuming, presentation, music selection, choreography, style, and technique.

    Yesterday I posted the news of all the winners here: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/in...2017-u-s-nationals.97306/page-16#post-5027124
    ...
    "A formal presentation of these awards will take place during U.S. Figure Skating’s Champs Camp later this year."

    They stopped in Hawaii on the way back from 4CC for a week of vacation to recharge for Worlds. From all the pics they look very refreshed and reenergized!

    I hope they do! I've started to look forward to their FD more than anyone else's, and I never expected that at the start of the season.

    It sounds as though all of the dance teams are getting right back to work. I'm happy they're back with Christopher Dean, I think his programs suit them well and help them stand out.

    Madison Chock & Evan Bates | Catching Up With Team USA (taped before the final weekend of SOI shows while they were in Colorado Springs) -- Evan said they are working on their [La La Land] FD choreography with Christopher Dean and will return after the tour to continue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IjNr7urffc

    ETA: I think this is the first time they've mentioned publicly that Dean would be choreographing their 2017-18 free dance?

    Their GP schedule is China and France. Papadakis and Cizeron will be at both and their other main competition in China is Bobrova/Soloviev and in France Weaver/Poje.

    No more La La Land Free... I can't decide if I'm happy or sad about that.

    I'm sad. I thought it could've been a really stylish program for them. I loved their foxtrot SD and their old Hollywood glam SD.

    I'm very excited for the Marc Anthony SD. It's not over used Latin program music.

    I really wanted a Marc Anthony piece this season, so I'm happy one team decided to use him.

    I agree. It also would have played well to the general-I-watch-skating-once-every-four-years crowd as well.

    But on the other hand Imagine could do the same. And because something more abstract worked well for them this past season, maybe they decided that would be a better route.

    Hopefully they turn what they had for La La Land into an expo number.

    Sounds like the season is starting out as a mess already. Sorry

    LIAR!

    They haven't even competed it yet, I mean if they survived that FD music from last year...they should be fine?

    I'm not an uber by any means, but I'm not thinking they'll be dropping just yet. They could still very well beat my favs Hubbell & Donohue once again. They won a world medal with that Rach program, after all.

    :rolleyes:

    Skaters are always making tweaks and sometimes major changes to programs. The season hasn't even started yet and we haven't seen anyone's FDs. I would have preferred La La Land but I'm going to wait until I see the Imagine FD before passing judgment. How about we wait to see everyone's programs before declaring anyone's season "a mess"?

    What, we should refrain from baseless speculation and needless catastrophizing?!? NEVAH!! :drama:

    But seriously, teams like C/B and WeaPo have shown us in the past that they can handle scrapping programs AFTER competing them in senior-Bs and quickly coming up with new ones without ruining their season, so...

    I'm not sold on the 'Imagine' concept, but then again I was very 'meh' and 'blah' about their Rachmaninov throughout the 2015-16 season -- yet somehow C/B made me appreciate that program and even like it when they skated it in Boston.
