    Favorite Progams of the Season thus far

    It is half way through the grand prix circuit and the jr grand prix is already completed. We seen almost everyone so far so what's your favorite programs this year?

    To be honest, my favorite program so far is Risa Shoji's long program. It's fresh and very sophisticated for a 14 year old skater. I love the music, too. I don't know anyone else who's skated to it in the past. Check it out...

    Now that's fantastic skating. Her jumps are quite scary, I must say. But the rest are just fantastic.

    oddly there are just not that many great programs this year. I have to say Christina Gao's SP is a favorite, Aliona and Robin's SP and Dai's SP are my favs. Abbott's freeskate is perfct for him...still waiting for a clean performance though. Davis and White's and the Shibanutis have the best dance programs easily.

    To me, the runaway great programs are Kavaguti/Smirnov's LP and Crone/Poirier's FD. Nothing else really comes close.

    Shibutani's Free Dance

    Alissa's LP, and her exhibition program

    Abbott's LP suits him, but I'm not sure it's a World podium program.

    D&W FD. I also quite enjoy C&P's FD, even though it's regularly panned here, and P&B's Chaplin FD. I like Takahashi's SP. I like Csizny's FD, and both programs of S&S in pairs.

Crone/Poirier look like more "junior" with the advanced senior teams who compete with them and they are not a strong a pair as either of them. They are like look their teammates, Weaver/Poje. For this year it seem Crone/Poirier have trouble investing to the maximum to give the choregoraphy its intended Dean effect. It is skated through but does not reach into me like it should. It seems all the ice dancers are lackluster this season
    I think that D/W's FD is perfect for them to improve their artisty and connection. A tango requires strong commitment and interpretation, but because it is highly technical it allows them to work on their weaknesses while still highlighting their strengths. I love C/P FD, but their performance of it seems to get more lackluster every time out.

    Glad someone mentioned this team. It's not an all time list program or anything, but there's creativity here.
