Help on finding skaters program
Today my mentioned how she liked a pair or ice dance routine from the early 1990's. She said the lady had long flowing red hair. She and her partner skated to Swan Lake with a Dracula theme. The man was dressed in a cloack. That's about all she remembers of it, but would like to find out who skated this. She is pretty sure it was in the year Rick Pitino took the University of Kentucky Wildcats to the NCAA tournament (1993). The only ice dancers I can think of with long flowing red hair is Marina Klimova and Marina Anassina.

Klimova and Ponomarenko skated to Dracula for a pro program. I believe Sergei may have worn a cloak. Marina did have reddish hair and it's about the right time frame. I don't recall the music being Swan Lake though, I thought it was from the Dracula movie.
Thank you! Do you know if there are any websites with pictures (or video) of this program?

I've been searching for a picture, but couldn't find one.
On youtube I think the one listed 1995 Legends is of the Dracula program..I didn't watch it because I have slow dialup! But Golden Skate's listing lists that they skated to it at the 1995 Legends (along with a couple other programs, but this one looks like it's it.) They may have used different costumes in other performances of the program - I'm not sure. Golden Skate's pro listing also says they used it at the 1993 Challenge of Champions. Perhaps that's the performance you're thinking of.
Here's a link to the K&P programs on youtube...scroll down of the 1995 Legends video.
It's also on this (if you want to shell out $14.95, LOL.)

The link should still be valid.
It's not Swan Lake, which K&P also skated to, my favorite of all interpretations of the music, but it's a gorgeous program.
