    Seniortita, again thank you so much for your wonderful report!

     I watched also a masterclass he gave yesterday and thought he was a genius, he made the skaters have same steps with two completely different kinds of music.


    Mishin is really a cheerful person, he uses games to teach, today with Dickson they were showing  how not to skate with fists firm and used all kind of tricks.
    I am so glad Miyamoto is getting recognized on the international skating scene!

    I always wondered why not more US skaters will be working with Dickson...especially US girls, you know. He is a genius! But for some reason I don't know, their first picks seemed almost always Lori Nichol.

    It's been my dream for years that Daisuke will be working with Evgeni Platov again or with Tom Dickson for the first time.
    Oh, sorry guys for the OT. I just can't help myself talking about my boy at least once a day.

    Liza looks wonderful, as if she's strengthening and gaining authority over her skating. And the photos of Plushy remind me of how happy I am that he's continuing to contribute to skating. We've debated over his age in regard to portraying Romeo, but another aspect of his maturity and experience is that he skates as a man, not as a boy, and his presence adds scope, diversity, and range to the skating that we fans get to see. We need both the Hanyus and the Plushenkos in skating, and inevitably there will be more of the former (fiery young skaters) than the latter, whose ranks are thinned by injury, age, and just the desire to move on.

    Yeah, but I´d suppose there must have been a valid reason for Mishin´s stripping all of the choreography. I´m really curious to see whether there will be "a new Plushenko" or not.

     I watched also a masterclass he gave yesterday and thought he was a genius, he made the skaters have same steps with two completely different kinds of music.

    He is also  working with Liza, is it reported that Wilson did her programs? I think her lp looks like Wilson and is totally in her comfort zone, but it looks like Dickson does her sp and I already love  it, I think it will be a brand new image of her! It suits her age too.he also does her exhibition.

    Liza has grown up since last time i saw her, she has more curves and looks little bigger, yesterday she was practicing spins but in the programs she hit her jumps. I think she took notice of the ice covering critics and she skates bigger.

    Btw the  little girls of the camp look upon her and follow her everywhere like bees, lol

    Mishin is really a cheerful person, he uses games to teach, today with Dickson they were showing  how not to skate with fists firm and used all kind of tricks.
    I ll go one more day to the arena because the area here has the best scenery to tour and I don't wanna miss it.
    Thank you for the great report, seniorita! Just wondering--when Miyamoto choreographs and talks to Plush and Mishin, do they all speak English? Or do they have a translator?

    They speak eachother English and with  mishin also. Thats how we grow our ears bigger and can understand what they say
    Have I said how cool Miyamoto is? He  always  skates alongside the run-throughs  to point out stuff, so it is a real treat to watch him skate and comes up with ten more ideas on the go. Everybody is fall in love with him here. Because someone asked me, the  r&j version is not the Marton arrangement he has done in the past.

    Elisaveta is doing a new sit  spin variation with the free leg and her hair cutter( or how it's called) spin with hand positions, like a flower. She also learns new tricks!

    Bestskate8 you should go one time, once you talk to mishin and ask him to watch, it all fine.I think mishin is the sweatest person once you meet him and I stand by that opinion no matter what people say.

    I didn't see training today I went to the mountain lakes but I think Kenzo  left today.

    What a gorgeous typo! Yes, Kenji is Kenzo, a.k.a international luxury brand.

    Seniorita, thanks again for all your updates. I'm glad to hear that Elizaveta is working on new spin positions. I'm glad that she's going to try to get level 4 on all her spins because that's just points left on the table if she doesn't. Hopefully the haircutter position with the nice hands will get her higher GOE. Can you describe the sit spin and the new tricks? Did she do jumps too or was it mainly choreography, spins and steps? Also, any chance you could give us clues on the music or did Mishin say no spilling the beans?

    Also, I'm glad to see that you were able to talk to Mishin (although I think that, if I were to do that, I'd faint). Did you actually get to talk to him or any skaters/choreographers during any non-ice time though or was it just to get viewing permission?

    Thanks so much for answering all of our questions. You're so lucky that you got to visit Mishin's group. I hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation too!
    Thanks again!

    This is why we send Seniorita to these things: she maintains her poise where many of the rest of us would faint. I certainly would if I were in the same room as Mishin. And if I were in the same room with Mishin and Plushenko...call the ambulance! I'd probably just evaporate completely.

    Thanks so much for sharing this unique experience with us, Seniorita. I really feel as though I spent a few moments at that wonderful rink.
