BTW, Karen and Polina Edmunds will be special guests at the [Saturday] Dec 10 holiday ice show at the new Tech CU Arena, which Sharks Ice San Jose was proud to add to its facilities.
(Another BTW is that the event includes a tribute to Rudy Galindo.)

Not exactly on topic, but this thread seems like the best place for this little mention:

Some skaters and coaches from Skating Club of Boston performed in the new holiday movie "Spirited" (starring Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds, Octavia Spencer).
In theaters and on Apple TV+.

I heard about it from someone at SCOB, although I haven't seen the movie.
The only general reference to skating that I have found in print:
" ... a pair of pivotal ice skating scenes were shot a rink built in Union Point’s Hangout, the old aircraft hangar-turned-soundstage ..."​



ETA:

- Tree lighting in Providence, Rhode Island, on Sat Dec 3 at 4 pm:​

On Ice Perspectives will be filming. Olympic medalists Kerrigan (host), Brown, Karen Chen, Castelli.
Also Philip Baker, Heidi Munger, Jun Hong Chen; Ocean State Ice Theatre; along with local skating champions.​


- Great Park Ice holiday recital on Dec 20, 3 - 7 pm​

No telling (at least for now) whether any of GPI's bigger names will take part, but who knows?
(FWIW: At least once, Nathan did.)​

Kostner also tweeted the same clip (ETA) and I've bumped up a school figures thread and embedded the tweet there: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/threads/school-figures-a-bit-of-history.107056/#post-6360185

Looks like it's a cold rink:cold: - who's the dance(?) couple in the first photo? ...

Pretty sure that the first photo shows Mrazkova/Mrazek (who train in Italy) in the opening pose of their FD.
(TBH, her hairstyle was the initial clue for me.)

For comparison, their FD at JGPF (see their opening pose at 0:39):
