Thanks for sharing all the links and translations, everyone. I haven't been able to spend much time on GS this week, with work stress, and the news from Boston was so frightening and sad that I sort of lost energy. I should have come here right away: seeing Dai and his fellow skaters always lifts the spirits, just as their skating helped so many people after the earthquake two years ago. When one is surrounded by darkness, one should look for light.
I'm glad the skaters could have a less stressful event for their final competition of the season. It sounds like a lot of fun to contend as a team, especially (in the case of the Japanese skaters) on home turf where the crowd could buoy them up and express thanks for the season's good work. Now I hope they all REST!

No relibale source but rumor says that, according to the most recent interview to Nikolai (in Russian language), Dai may be going to prepare for the Olympic season with four new programs...Two (=Sp+Free) choreo'd by Nikolai. One more short, probably Tango music with the choreographer he already tried (Kenji?), and a Free with Lori Nichol.
Is it TRUE??? I hope Let's talk, or anyone else accessible to Russian source will soon check in here to confirm and give us further information on this.

^ This info is from the official Morozov site, which could be considered as reliable: http://www.morozov-team.com/article/95.html
"With Takahashi we are planning to make four programs: I will choreo two of them and two other choreographers will make the other two. This season in Japan Daisuke got choreographed an excellent "Tango". With the same specialists he will make a SP again. Also, Daisuke wants to work with a famous choreographer Lori Nikol, she will make another FS for Daisuke. We are plannig to have so many programs in order to have a choice- then we will choose the best."
Well-well. Four sounds like a little too much. But it's a Morozov's say for now and during the off-season there could be some "adjustments" I think.
Earlier the same Morozov siate mentioned that Daisuke will join Nikolai's training group later (probably after PIW) and the training camp will be in New-York: http://www.morozov-team.com/article/90.html . Today A.Verner, who can be terribly irreliable, posted that Morozov's group will be in Lukanin's ice rink "Floyd Hall Arena" in New Jersey: http://www.floydhallarena.com/default.asp

Thanks for the info let's talk and deedee. Sounds like Dai is not putting all of his apples in one basket.
My fingers are crossed that he uses Kenji for his SP, I love his work.

You will find Dai, Taka, Mao, Kanako and Yuzuru. Particularly, so nice to see 'healthy' Taka & Yuzu!
