    Matt Savoie, short program choreographed by Tom Dickson!
    Still gives me chills!

    Thank you for reminding me of the Matt Savoie short. Just beautiful. You want transitions? You want difficult and interesting entries into jumps? He's got 'em. And to *start* a program off with a spin? Oh just lovely.

    I just love so much of Mao's program. She looks stunning in the white dress! I can just watch it all day long! Such elegance and lightness and great lines of a balerina.

    And it got me thinking about programs (both competitive and exhibitions) that are meant to be artistically well-constructed, tell a story, etc.

    Now, I don't necessarily mean programs that have scored the most 6.0s or highest scores (MK got a 6.0 for presentation at 2003 Worlds for her long program, but let's face it; "Aranjuez" wasn't exactly brilliant in terms of choreography)-- but "what makes a well-constructed program, in terms of aesthetic principles".

    Some of my favorites:
    ~ Michelle Kwan - 1995-1996 LP - Salome (Lori Nichol)
    ~ Lu Chen - 1995-1996 SP - Spring Breeze (Sandra Bezic)
    ~ Sasha Cohen - 2005-2006 LP - Romeo & Juliet (David Wilson)
    ~ Phillipe Candeloro - 1997-1998 LP - D'Artagnan (Natacha Dabadie?)
    ~ Mao Asada - 2010-2011 EX - Ballade No. 1 (Tatiana Tarasova)
    ~ Alissa Czisny - 2011-2012 SP - La vie en rose (Yuka Sato, Pasquale Camerlengo)

    ~Bonus: The beginnings of a flirtatious Daisuke Takahashi
    (2003-2004 SP - Nyah - Tatiana Tarasova)

    What do you guys think? What do you think makes a balanced and well-constructed program and who are some of the best choreographers in the world?
