    Thanks. I'm really surprised about Fumie's coice! Who would have thunk it? I'm excited about sasha's choice although I think Swan Lake is boring and overdone.

    Hey, at least there's no Carmen on there. Yet. That music definitely needs to be retired.

    Oh wow! This is exciting news! Thanks so much for sharing! I didn't realize NNN was going to be back in the mix. I can't wait to see everyone!

    Hey! Those who predicted Sasha would complete her collection of tried and true Skating Music Classics by using Swan Lake were correct. She will indeed do Swan Lake. (And I must say, I am sure she will make a gorgeous swan)

    Does anyone know whether she is doing the white swan or the black?

    I heard Plush was doing some Spanish flamenco music for his SP, but I don't know where that came from and I may just be spreading a rumor with no basis in anything

    What's up with the Swan Lake. Kind of surprise they are using that but I will say that it will probably a beautiful program. Who knows, if she skates it well and it's a nice program then it could become her masterpiece but the music is overdone.

    Thanks for the update! Jeff's choices will be great! Mike W. skating to Henry V? I always wanted Elvis to skate to that music! I think Sasha's choice "Swan Lake" is perfect for her. Most of the music choices sound great.

    Take 5?

    I disagree about Jeff's choices. While I like "Take 5" as a piece of music, for a skating program, it's duller than cardboard. No peaks, no drama, no variation whatsoever. Remember Amber's dull routine to that music a year or so ago? YAWN! If you're looking to engage an audience, this is not the piece of music to do it. Jeff needs all the help he can get--this music will not help him at all.

    Doris - I'm with you. At this point in her career, I should think that Sasha would get some new unheard of music befitting to her style and wow the audience.

    Swan Lake - Ugh I can see the arms flapping like wings and attempting a balletic bouree on the toe rakes. I will not be impressed.

    But on the other hand if she uses the 'Black Swan' music and cuts out the arm flapping and bourees and just skates bravura, she may well bring the house down. It does at Lincoln Center.

    I think Sasha will make a beautiful swan. If that's what she will be doing.
