    Thank you SO MUCH for such a detailed eyewitness account of SOI Japan. I feel as if I also was there. I'm pleased to hear how much you enjoyed Dorothy. She always had the most beautiful skating posture. Yuka Sato reminds me of her in that regard. I'm thrilled to hear that Ilia has retained his textbook jumps, and that Yagudin and Irina are still skating. As for Kurt, I love your description of him "playing music with blades." I think that's exactly what comes through in his skating. It's wonderful to hear how great Daisuke was and how graceful Mao was (though like you, I am fearful for her jumps). I too wish you could go back and see it again tomorrow. And that I could go with you!

    Today TV Tokyo aired Stars on Ice but it was Osaka's arena, not Tokyo. I don't know if they're ever going to show Tokyo's venue. I didn't see much of cameras around.

    I'm not sure from which of the shows this performance is. I simply posted it because I liked the description of the program in your report and I thought that other people would want to see it. Note: Dai's solo part starts at about 2:00 and Dai+Mao is at 2:25 (but the whole program is really lovely).

    Thank you let's talk for your review. Sounds like it was a truly wonderful show. I can just imagine the audience going nuts when the music from the Stroll started. I am glad you got to see Dorothy skate she is like a breath of fresh air on a summer night, her stroking and movement on the ice creates a mood that is still first rate.

    Thank you also for the link to the SOI show,what a treat! Loved seeing Irina again along with Shawn Sawyer, Johnny, Ilia, Kurt and the rest of the cast.

    Thanks a lot, let's talk, for your great review on the show into such details as always.
    I got to see SOI Osaka show thru TV the other night. And I so much agree with you on Ms. Dorothy Hamil!

She should give a lesson to the current Olympic champion, and not her only, on how to move arms gracefully and in general represent the true Ladyship, the thing that is missing now in women's skating. To share the designer of her outfit would be a good idea too. Maybe then we will see more real gowns, not some ugly dresses in poor taste. She didn't jumps, did the spiral, layback spin and upright spin. That was enough to deliver the real beauty of this sport.
    I Ms. Hamil and Shawn Sawyer in the group number. What a shame TV Tokyo did not air Shawn's solo program...

    I haven't had a chance to watch the whole show yet, but I do wish they had included Shawn's incredible "Alegria" program! Maybe if we're lucky, we'll get to see it on SOI's US syndicated airing of the tour.

    It's some video from Stars on Ice (not Japan tour). Have no idea when the show took place: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mLh4y_cuRM
