I will expect an improvement in the performance this season but that triple lutz/triple loop sounds perfect for her needs

Mao is the big jumper here. Her 3A will also register in the PCS scores subjectively. I'm expecting this season that she will get away from the 'little girl' look.
Yu Na's lyrical grace may be hard for Kimmie to overtake.

Carmina Burana has been done mostly by male skaters and ice dancers. I think maybe Emily chose it because she feels it fits her powerful style. The problem is that is she can't skate a clean program, her performance is way overpowered by the music. At least it isn't ballet music again.
Her new coaching arrangement is probably the reason for the switch.
It's unfortunate that she is skating to the same SP music as Mirai Nagasu. They will certainly skate the programs with completely different styles.

They anounced YU-NA KIM is scheduled to be on the ice show in Japan 14th Jul, and she will present "Just a Girl" there. I hope she could show her new LP, Miss Saigon, Piano Concerto version.

I read somewhere zhang & zhang are using the soundtrack of a Chinese film 'myth' for their long program. They are now creating the program with an American choreographer in Beijing. Not sure the name of the choreographer, maybe the same one of their past programs.

perhaps Renee Roca? has she been their choreographer before? I know she helped out with S/Z and P/T

Don't kno. I read somewhere long time ago, a former American ice dancer has been Z/Z's choreographer for a while. S/Z, P/T and Z/Z did not share choregraphers in the past. They all used different ones.

BTW, Chenjiang Li will also use 'Yellow River Concert' for his short program(is Bebe using this one?). I don't believe that's really a good choice though.
I checked Z/Z's ISU bio, their previous choreographer was 'Gorsha Sur', anybody has any idea?

Rene Roca and Gorsha Sur were American ice dancers (but if I recall correctly, never competed at Olys because of citizenship issues?)

Well those do sound like good choices of music for Alissia. I love west side story. I may be in 7th heaven this season. I can't wait to see it.
Well everyone has their 2 cents about Kimmie's comments after worlds last year. I felt she was saying that she was basicaly skating to music & doing some choreography she did not like. I realy think she was referring to her SP. It was ugly and everyone knows it. I think she wants to be more involved in picking out her music and choreographers. I think she liked her LP. She is still working wih Lori. It was that Morosov crap that did not go over well.
Also I don't think triple luz/triple loop is a good choice for her. Why doesn't she just perfect the Lutz/toe combination? The loop is her weakest triple.

Renee seems to be teh go to choreographer for the Chinese teams right now... though S/Z have been using other choreographers the last few years...

Resident Chinese pair nerd
I don't recall S/Z using Renee in the past. I know they worked with Lea Ann Miller up until last year when Lori Nichol did their programs. I could be wrong though.

she wasn't an 'exclusive' choreographer for them, but I remember in like 02 or 03 hearing Terry mention it...
that or I've gone completely crazy... which is quite possible lol

Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy's new short program music:
The next season has already started. Savchenko and Szolkowy debuted their new short program to music from the Asoka soundtrack (an Indian Bollywood Film) on July 7 at a club show in their home town of Chemnitz.
