Lea Ann Miller, who choreographed Shen & Zhao's 'Turando' and 'Nutcracker', will be McLaughlin & Brubaker's choregrapher next season. They are adding another set of sbs 3toe.
So you don't need to skate clean, just rack up the points. It's a shame that promising new teams such as McLaughlin & Brubacker would have this sort of attitude under the 'inspiraion' of CoP and #1 pair team Savchenko & Szolkowy's performances. No wonder ...With all of the technical elements, plus a second side-by-side triple, the team is aware that skating clean will be tough.
"If you look at the Germans, I don't think they had a clean skate all season," Brubaker said. "It's not necessarily about skating clean; it's about the entire package. [Savchenko and Szolkowy] can make mistakes, but you don't remember the errors because there is so much more to the program."
