After watching Campbell's and now Skate America, I have to ask, has Morosov's choreography reached the over-saturation point?
It seems just about every elite skater has now implemented his choreography and, for me, at least, a large chunk of the uniqueness in style skaters used to exhibit has disappeared or has been greatly diminished.
I'm not trying to discount Morosov as a choreographer, but from reading numerous posts on different forums, programs are now similar, bordering on identical - from music cuts, general structure and flow of a program, and especially in footwork. The inundation of toe-pick use in footwork sequences has turned me completely off to it, when I used to love it.
I am glad that Sasha has removed the Morosov footwork from her Malaquena program - not only is the new sequence smoother and better suited with the music, the changes separate her choreography in this portion from what's become the current mainstream footwork rage.
Just curious - exactly how many singles skaters are currently using Morosov choreography? I haven't had enough coffee this morning to try and tally them up.
