    Dreams on Ice 2008

    The first show took place today.

    Mao skated to tango (possibly from the "Scent of a woman" movie), her costume is red and black.

    Nobunari skated to "Tosca", same as at FOI.

    An article with a photo:

    A TV program (short clips of Mao & Daisuke, mostly concentrating on Nobunari):

    (warning: sad to watch :( )

    A longer TV program about Nobunari:

    (Also sad to watch, heart breaks when listening to that broken voice. :( But gorgeous practice clips with Morozov, superb jumps (3A-3T-3L).)

    This is all I have for now.

    Mao's toe steps are cool. She is skating to tango "Por una Cabeza" from Scent of a Woman.

    Some nice photos:

    They all look great. Mao seems to have "developed" more... and this couldl be hurting her jumps. She fell on the lutz in the event... but that dosen't mean much. She often has jumps problems in shows. Great music choice though and i LOVE her dresses.

    about the steps.... i knew we were going to see Tersosova influence right away!

    I don't think she has "developed", it's probably just an illusion caused by a more "covering" dress than usual. On other recent photos and practice videos she looks very slim, almost thin.
    I think she fell because she started to work on her flutz... This usually causes skaters to have problems with landing flip/lutz for some time. She probaly put those in an Exibition to get used to them more quicky, same as she did with 3A two seasons ago.
    Actually, it's rare for her to mess a jump during an exhibition... When this happens she's usually trying to get a jump back or recovering from injury.

    That was flip, not lutz. You can see a mohawk turn before the jump.

    Tatianna had put the toe steps in Sasha's Swan Lake performance. This is from Skate Canada 2003, I was there!! It's at about the 3:30 mark.

    I know. That partnership IMO, was perfect. Tatiana knew just how to make the best use of Sasha's ability. Swan Lake is my all time favorite program of hers. you must have been so lucky to be there!

    I just seen DOI on TV.
    Just watched Mao's performance. How can I say, umm the music rather suits Yuna? The toe pick dances were good, but I don't think she corporated to the music well. Maybem it is still new and she has to practice more.
    I like Mao's last year Chopin more. Also the fall of triple flip we saw from the youtube, she landed it safely, so here it seems like she did retake the shot later.

    She made it clean on Saturday evening and they aired that performance.
    No magic.

    Wow, I'm SOOOO impressed. This surpassed my expectations.
    Fantastic choreography and marvelous performance.

    I even love this one better than last season's "So deep is the night" which was a fabulous program.

    Thanks Aaron - Mao is sooo good with this TT Tango. She dances to every beat of the music and with rhythm. Her flexibility is just WOW with an I spin and no hands, and a forward outside Charlotte. Increible!!!

    My only competitive question: Was it a Triple Flip or Wrong Edge Takeoff 3 Lutz? No matter, as a exhibition, who cares?

    Not sure of it is better than "How Deep Is the Night" but it is really good. she sure sold it and looked so happy. I love that footwork and it sure has the drama that Terosoava loves. I can't wait to see her competition programs.

    I heard that she was sick and had 40 degree fever while performing :(
    But this was a great program and suited her to a T, those 3 minutes went on so fast. Her flexibility improved a lot!

    Beautiful! Her spiral improved as well and the final spin is just
