    For now, definitely David Wilson. Yuna's programs the last two years have been genius. Especially these days, competitive programs sometimes start to blur together for me. But Wilson's never do. They always stand out and are always memorable. Picking Beethoven's 9th for Joubert this year may have been inspired. We'll see on that one.

    I like what Tat did for Sasha Cohen back in the day but I feel she has to redeem herself for the Bells of Moscow.

    I voted for David Wilson. I like Yuna's programmes...
    My second choice is Tatiana Tarasova.

    Voted other. Sandra Bezic wins hands down for me. Wish she still did choreography *le sigh* much more valuable as a choreographer than a commentator. As for the Why - Kurt Browning, Kristi Yamaguchi, Tara Lipinski, Brian Boitano, Stars On Ice... nuff said.

    Sarah Kawahara gets a nod as well for her work with Scottie Hamilton.

    Many of my best skating memories are from Sandra's programs.
    I would also add the programs Sandra did for Chen-Lu to Toni's list.

    Purely from a choreography point of view, I think I like Lori Nichols' works best, overall. Her old programs for Michelle Kwan and Mao Asada are wonderful. I also like Carolina Kostner's SP this year... I wish my own favourite lady (YuNa) had had more of an opportunity to work with her and see what came out of it.

    David Wilson's Lark Ascending for YuNa is the only one I know of his that stands out, for me.

    I would like to see more choreography by Tom Dickson (who did YuNa's Tango de Roxanne) and Shae-Lynn Bourne (e.g. Jeremy Abbott's Day in the Life.)

    I voted for Salome Brunner--or more specifically, her work with Stephane Lambiel.

    I also am very fond of Tatiana Tarasova's fierce choreography for Alexei Yagudin and Grishuk/Platov, thogh I am admittedly at her more recent work, such as her choreography for Mao Asada and costumes for Evan Lysacek in 08-09. Perhaps it's safe to say that Tarasova's strength is definitely in 6.0, not CoP.

    Sandra Bezic's work with Chen Lu and Lori Nichol with Michelle Kwan are also old favourites of mine.

    Kenji Miyamoto, Shae-Lynn Bourne and Pasquale Camerlengo.



    I also like Lori Nichol.

    Tom Dickson, by far. His programs are soooo interesting. Bourne, Camerlengo, Dean, Roca, and Klimova are some of my other faves.

    The work of Morozov, Nichol, and Wilson tends to bore me 95% of the time.

    The choreographer alone needs a muse to really connect with me. Lori Nichol did some amazing things with Michele but I would not necessarily stand up and notice her work with for instance Rachael. David Wilson is exciting with Jeffrey Buttle, but I do not recognize him with Cadey and Jeremy. Tom Dickson had his moments with Matt Savoie and Jeremy Abbott, but where is he now? Morozov is the commercial wizard, which sounds critical but as embodied by Amodio, is raise the roof. So many good choices, but to me it MATTERS who is delivering, who is the vehicle for the choreographer.
