I read from Icenetwork photo shoot, that Lysacek is travelling next week to Moscow to create new programmes with Tarasova. I blinked a couple of times and the first thought was that somebody has made a mistake and they meant Weir...., LOL. Anyway, I will be eagerly looking forward to those programmes as Lysacek is a very different person from those male skaters that Tarasova has worked earlier with, I think.

Actually, I'm going to miss Tosca, but am interested to see what these two will come up with together.
That said, can someone please post some samples of some things that Tarasova has done with others? Sadly, I'm not all that familiar with what she has done or what her area(s) of expertise are. Please enlighten - a curious fan wants to know. Thanks.
Interesting music choices from the Chinese pairs, especially P/T's Tango. Hope they can pull it off.
The pair recently returned from a month-long trip to the US where they trained with world-renowned choreographers Nikolai Morozov and Sarah Kawahara to develop their new routines.
Blues music will be the backdrop for their short program, while their freestyle skating music will consist of up-tempo tango songs, a contrast to their previous freestyle, which was often slower and more lyrical.
"We have listened to various types of music and finally decided to apply the styles that are a departure from our past," Tong said. "We hope the new program attracts the attention of the judges."
I don't think any skater can be compared to another skater in style. That's what they bring to the ice as their own contribution without coach and choreographer.
I admire TT because she enhances a skater's style. She's not going to give Evan a quad lutz, but she just might find a new way for him to express himself on the ice. I think she will and I look forward to Evan this year.
Any news on the Canadian pairs teams new programs? I haven't seen any news about them since the season ended.
