He's not a skater that tends to grimace, applaud himself during the program or wave his arms about in a crude display of angst, but what he does do beautifully is express the music through his whole body in the choreographed movements and with the quality of his blade on the ice. The relationship of his blade to ice, and what it adds to his programs, is really something that has to be seen live. I'm sorry if you have not had that chance.The pashionless frigid program stirs you up?
