Copied from the French news thread:
Villard de Lans Patinage’s sneak peek clip of their new Ballet on Ice program:
@Nmsis has posted more info on Ballet on Ice teams in the French news thread (post #537): https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/th...çaise-part-quatre.107545/page-18#post-6584447

"Held every other year, the Nations’ Cup & Adult Gold Cup is a prestigious international TOI competition. Teams are selected to participate by their country’s governing body. American teams are selected by the U.S. Figure Skating Theatrical Skating Committee."

Local articles on partoicipating USA teams:

IceWorks Skating Club in Aston, PA :
This marks the first time in the club's history that its Theatre on Ice team will compete internationally, representing the nation as Team USA. The 2024 Nations' Cup is set to host 47 teams and over 900 skaters.
The competitive category of Theatre on Ice focuses more on group performance as opposed to solo and pair skating which often bases scores more on jumps and spins.
Ocean State Ice Theatre, representing the Pawtucket and Providence (Rhode Island) Figure Skating Club, is one of four US novice teams participating:

Houston Ice Theatre:

Harmony Theater Company (Ice House Skating Academy in Hartland, Michigan):

Program descriptions can be found in the Sportity app (BordeauxBOL24).

ETA:

Act I of Boston won (95.38) - their program description reads: Is an idea worth anything? Is a concept even good? Will anyone understand the piece? These are all questions that can flood the artists' head with doubt, worry, and anxiety. But what if you ... fly?

The final team, SUI's Edelw'ice, was 2nd (93.93) - their theme was "Dare to be yourself" skating in colorful costumes and ending with "This Is Me" from The Greatest Showman OST.

I believe Kallysta of Nice FRA ended up in 3rd (88.93).

Oh I watched both programs and they are great!VDL‘s program is contemporary and cosmic while Harmony’s program creates a whole story.
Also I’m glad to see all the VDL ice dancers!

Both the Senior and Junior Free program replay videos, linked above, have been restored! :)

I came across this video of Forte’s Jazz free program - filmed through netting - on this Instagram account (there are other videos as well): https://www.instagram.com/reel/C6T8XuyI-JE/
Adam Blake, who also choreographed for the team, does a backflip near the end.

LA Ice Theater's Instagram account has videos, including their Junior team's "Sirens" free (wearing the orange tights is Nicole Park, Cleo's older sister): https://www.instagram.com/reel/C6ToTI6IfNv/
Bebe Liang is LAIT's Director/Choreographer.
