    This is a second video to Mao's LP "Swan Lake" which is in much better quality than the first video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfkkuI5vXyw

    I really love Mao's swan lake she really has a very different and uniq program, I looooove the transitions, and all the details in the program, everything fit perfectly with the music and her timing is incredible. she is soo gentle to the ice, and does everything so elegantly on the ice, makes one forget that this is a sport and competition one is watching. my heart skipped a few beats while she was skating lol

    Hooray for Mao! My favorite part is the footwork sequence, especially the part that is where a ballerina playing the Black Swan would do the fouettes. The whirling that Mao does there is a perfect way to "translate" the fouettes to ice skating.

    Suddenly I'm thrilled about the upcoming season.

    Of course Mao does a brilliant job with this Swan Lake but some credit should also go to TAT for making the choreography. She put all the transitions between the jumps and choreographed such a beautiful step sequence which is very difficult technically and matches the music at the same time. So many details going with the theme of the music. And then add to this Mao's natural line and posture, add her flexibility and grace and you have almost perfect Swan. Almost because the perfect one is Sasha .

    I just loved this program. Brava for Mao! And Tarasova did an amazing job with the choreography -- Mao looked so joyous....she certainly deserves to feel this way after the horrible year she had last year.

    Love her!
