More performance clips from Ice Theatre of New York's "Spring Unplugged" show on May 2nd...

Sarah Baetge's "When Atoms Embrace": https://www.instagram.com/p/BxGjx-unrex/
This piece was choreographed by Lorna Brown to "Spiegel im Spiegel" for Viola and Piano by Arvo Pärt.

Theron James' "Presence": https://www.instagram.com/p/BxJVkRkHCcy/
Background article on this piece: http://amsterdamnews.com/news/2019/mar/07/ice-theatre-debuts-new-piece-black-history-month/
... choreographed by Deneane Richburg, a skating and dance choreographer and founder of Brownbody, a company that combines modern dance, theater, social justice practice and skating.
“This piece is about presence and the idea of what that means. What does it mean to be in a space, to self-affirm, to get externally affirmed on multiple levels—physically, emotionally and spiritually? For a lot of African-Americans, we have not had that,” said Richburg, who worked with James for about a week and a half on the program. He learned the choreography in about two days, and they spent the rest of the time focused on the intent of the piece.
Jordan Moeller raised over $5000 at his 8th Annual "One Skate at a Time" show this past Saturday in Crestwood, IL - here's a group photo and message shared by him: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxK1j2Blbh-/
Scheduled to perform with Moeller are Courtney Hicks, Jimmy Ma and the 2019 U.S. Junior Pairs bronze medalists Isabelle Martins/Ryan Bedard.
On Ice Perspectives' Jordan Cowan will be filming on ice here this weekend:
Cleveland Skating Club's 82nd Annual Ice Show Runway on Ice! led by Artistic Director, Parker Pennington, will be on May 10 and 11, 2019 from 7-9:30 pm.
"The ice show will feature international skating talent Adam Blake, Keegan Messing, and Alexa and Chris Knierim alongside CSC Members. The long-standing show is a local favorite and is open to the public."

I'm hoping to go to the Skate It Forward show again this year but it falls at an awkward time for me (right before I leave for vacation). Fingers crossed I can work it out somehow though! :)

If anyone lives near the Novi (Michigan) Ice Arena, there are 2 more shows tomorrow - Saturday, May 11 at 1 pm & 7 pm: https://twitter.com/NoviIceArena/status/1126976875807543296

Chair-ography for Keegan Messing at the Cleveland SC's ice show - tomorrow (Saturday 7 pm) is the second & final show: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxSX7hjHpma/
Keegan did a backflip on request during the Meet and Greet Q&A event after Friday's show. :D

ETA - one of Keegan Messing's programs was his "Trashin' the Camp" (from Disney's Tarzan) with his requisite backflip and the Knierims brought back last season's "Goodbye My Lover" by James Blunt (choreo. by Benoit Richaud).

So last weekend I went to Ice Crystals, the annual show of the Colonial Figure Skating Club here in Massachusetts. As noted above in this thread, Alex Johnson was the guest star. Alex was amazing as usual & performed a new exhibition number in the show. Here is my article about the show (it contains a fancam vid of Alex's new EX): https://adivinesport.com/2019/05/12/ice-crystals-2019/#more-4960

P.S. I'll also be posting an interview with Alex tomorrow.

Update: I have managed to set my plans for vacation and they will NOT interfere with me going to see the Skate It Forward show in Columbus so barring any inforeseen circumstances, I will be there for sure now. Hopefully I'll be able to write another article about the show like I did last year! :cheer:

For those in the DC/Northern Virginia area, there's a new arena opening in Leesburg, VA, the Ion International Training Center. https://www.ionitc.com

For their grand opening, there will be a show on June 15th that benefits the Michael Weiss Foundation, featuring Nathan Chen, Mirai Nagasu, Nam Nguyen, and Dan Hollander, with Weiss hosting.

Aw man, I've got plans that night! :( But if they're going to keep bringing in top skaters, I'll make sure to keep an eye out for future shows!

The show at the Ion International Training Center (June 15)
It was so nice to see a show that benefits the Michael Weiss Foundation again!!

The skaters' list:
https://twitter.com/YukiNieve/status/1140016551468392454 (Kevin is listed twice but he skated once like others)

- Impressed by Jenna Hauer & Christian Bennett. They did beautiful and creative moves.

  • The skate by Capital Theatre on Ice was very entertaining.
  • Isabella Quintero (solo dancer) was really impressive, too.

- Avonley & Vadym skated to Demons. Really nice.

  • Nam riled up the audience most!
  • I was very happy to see Kevin's SP (from last season) and Mirai's skate again!
  • Needless to say, Nathan excited the crowd most - he skated to Next to Me and got standing ovations.

Some of my photos/movies are here:

Didn't know that there is a separate thread for this show. I copied my post there.

And thanks for correcting Jenna's last name. I was impressed so much so that I googled her name and could not find who she was as a skater. No wonder.
