    I totally disagree. It's a different, and from what I've seen, more difficult challenge for a choreographer to choreograph for someone else vs. doing it for her/himself. I've seen plenty of dance pieces where sprightly young dancers, while more technically proficient, don't live up to how the originators did it. It takes a lot of time to impart the essence, the concept, the intent of movement from one person to another. And a lot can be lost in translation. Garrett Kling is a capable and a surprisingly young skater himself. I respect him for using another skater as an instrument, and kudos to Brown for picking up the choreography so well.

    Still, when a collaboration between choreographer and skater is successful, I feel like the skater has made a contribution to the piece, too.
