    My dream skating tour would include:

    Ladies: Ekaterina Gordeeva, Shae Lynn Bourne, Lu Chen, Michelle Kwan, Sasha Cohen, Akiko Suzuki, Mirai Nagasu, Yu-Na Kim
    Men: Brian Orser, Johnny Weir, Ilia Kulik, Stephane Lambiel, Jeffrey Buttle, Takahiko Kozuka, Adam Rippon, Daisuke Takahashi
    Ice Dance: Coomes/Buckland, Delobel/Schoenfelder, Davis/White, Virtue/Moir
    Pairs: Evora/Ladwig, Pang/Tong, Shen/Zhao, the Protopopovs (I can dream, right? I don't care if they don't do any difficult elements at all, they're just incredible)

    Actually, my favorite pair is Gordeeva/Grinkov, so sadly, I've listed Katia in Ladies. I will just have to settle for watching Vocalise, Reverie, Out of Tears and The Man I Love over and over again on youtube...

    The most important aspects of my dream skating tour would be that it would have plenty of time for rehearsal so that there could be duets and trios and quartets and larger ensembles consisting of skaters skating with each other, including in physical contact, other than long-time pair or dance teams . . . not just doing their own thing on the ice at the same time.

    I'd want skaters and choreographers who are interested in exploring ways to use their bodies and blades that don't necessarily fit into the competitive format.

    I'm not that interested in big pair tricks, but I'd be happy to have one or more adventurous pair skaters in the ensemble to perform moves that require those kinds of skills and body types.

    There are many ice dancers I'd love to see in this kind of format, although most are no longer skating even as pros. I won't bother fantasizing about getting all of them in peak training condition and in their old partnerships; for a 2010 or later tour maybe some could contribute better as choreographers.

    Here are some skaters I'd be happy to see in the cast:

    Jeremy Abbott
    Kurt Browning
    Jeff Buttle
    Jeri Campbell
    Lu Chen
    Krisztina Czako
    Dmitri Dmitrenko
    Ilia Kulik
    Stephane Lambiel
    David Liu
    Olga Markova
    Kim Navarro (with or without Bommentre)
    Stephanie Rosenthal
    Yuko Sato
