    Sorry about Emily Samuelson...I wish her all the best and hopefully she will soon find a good partner who fits to her well.

    btw, I have decided to root for Hubbell & Donohue among US Ice dance teams this coming season!
    They became my favorite team since 2012 US Nats. Especially Zach Donohue!

    If it's a link you're fine. It's when you post the actual pictures on the board that there's an issue.

    As results are coming in from LPIDC, it looks like Chock & Bates are in the driver's seat for the TBA spot at Skate America...but she should be restrained from making her own costumes, IMO.

    The photos look like Igor has given them some interesting lifts, no surprise there.

    It's so common that when even a very talented person sets out to design costumes, they fall into the mistake of doing too much embellishment.

    Hopefully, the folks at Champ's Camp will tell her to remove a few things

    Madison is very young however. She just turned 20 this month, if I remember.

    Yes, Chock turned 20 on July 2, per USFSA.

    That may be true, and I don't know if you're speaking of the Zhivago dress or the Cirque de Soleil, but if it's the latter she is playing a circus performer, and the costume is intentionally over-embellished. That said, we all know costumes change all the time.

    There is an long interview with all the Canton skaters on IN.

    They are working with Maurizio Margaglio, Barbara Fusar-Poli's partner, on the technical side of the Yankee Polka. Maurizio is an ISU technical specialist, and currently heads up the Finnish federation's ice dance group.

    Who ever finishes ahead of whom, we should have epic Barbara/Maurizio stares at US Nationals, 4CCs and Worlds!

    Oleg Epstein, Gracie Gold's choreographer, is also working with Marina at Canton. Considering that I didn't consider Gracie's choreo her strong point, this is not the most wonderful thing going, IMO.

    Scott Brown is Gracie's choreographer. I think Epstein is working more on perfecting elements in with the Canton skaters, than initiating choreography.

    She is! The imagined drama at US Nationals is amusing me a good deal.

    I was looking at this article last night and now suddenly it's gone from the site. I wonder if someone was offended by what was written? I was actually relieved because all the skaters seemed to be adjusting so well to the split/all the new outside coaching, but now I'm not sure what's up.
