doris , I thought I was the only one who'd never watched all of Mary Poppins.
Maybe there's more..it could be a secret sisterhood...( so secret we don't even know who we all are...)
For its day it was such a good film. Disney may be considered "just for kids and saps" but a lot of technology that they pioneered led to advances in film and sciences that we still benefit from. I wish the days of Eisner and even the current leadership had more of Disney's mindset and not just the $$ signs...
Mary Poppins is a bubblegum musical, but it showcased some real talent, and was a good retelling of the books. And who doesn't love the pairing of Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke?!
Announced by 2012 U.S. Senior ice dance pewter medalists Lynn Kriengkrairut/Logan Giulietti-Schmitt on their newly re-designed official site today: http://www.lynnandlogan.com/main/our...e-dance-music/
We want to take this opportunity to announce that we will be skating to Adele’s “Turning Tables” and “Rumor Has It” for free dance. Short dance is still up in the air, but we have a few options that we are equally as excited about.
I for one am really looking forward to Lynn and Logan skating to Adele. I'm not sure how I feel about Piper and Paul's Mary Poppins. I am a fan of the movie/book, but I'm not a huge fan of Piper and Paul.. that could change though.
Tweeted by @RichardDornbush today (re. his new SP music):
I'm skating to an instrumental of "With or Without You"
This is a version of a U2 song
I actually like that Piper/Paul are doing something upbeat. I don't think they've had enough time together as a team to do something dramatic, but hopefully, they will. I just hope that their coaching team doesn't force anything on to them that is beyond their performing capability.
Jeff Buttle will be choreographing all of Nan Song's programs. No info on music yet.
Do tell us when you hear!
Florent Amodio has just sent tweets ("shouting" even) to solicit ideas for his new programs:
"HAVE YOU GOT NICE IDEAS FOR MY NEW PROGRAMS 2013 !! ?? WRITE IT PLEASE !!"
"Si vous avez de belles idées pour moi pour mes nouveaux programmes en cette saison pré olympique je serais heureux de vous lire!! A très vite"

Chim-chim Cher-ee won the oscar for best song in 1964. (A Hard Day's Night by the Beatles wasn't nominated! ) Although the words are nonsensical and upbeat, the actual music is in a spooky minor key -- very much the two sides of the character of Mary Poppins from the books. (The half-way scary supernatural side of Mary Poppins was not present in the Julie Andrews portrayal.)
Spoonful of sugar seems a little slow for a polka. It is, however, very similar to "Shall We Dance?" from the King and I (Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner) which is supposed to be a polka. (Mrs. MM always swoons at the first few seconds of this clip. )
rumor has it program should be good!!
