Hope she skates to really beautiful music!
Don Quixote for me is perfect music for Akiko and Carmina Burana or Vocalise
A nice pic from Akiko's blog.
With Meryl at Detroit Skating Club Annual Ice Show this weekend:
Did Meryl had her hair cut?
Akiko says she borrowed a costume from Yuka.
Meryl wears her hair up for Die Fledermaus, with the mask on the side.
In the nice photo with Akiko, she is wearing her Die Fledermaus Exhibition costume, but it looks like she has taken the mask barrette off. Her hair is still up though.
Her "Fiddler on the roof" LP from Finlandia trophy was truly a masterpiece for me- sans that 1 double jump! What amazing choreography and musicality. The program was so underrated.
I am obsessed with the music of "Fiddler on the roof"! Simply exquisite! Her Cup of Russia is a masterpiece for me!
Akiko announced her program music for 2012-13 season.
SP: "Kill Bill" Soundtrack, choreographed by Krylova
FP: "O" by Cirque du soleil, choreographed by Camerlengo
She also had her EX choreographed in Detroit.
I'm super excited to watch her new programs! I hope she takes it to a new level of confidence, artistry and musicality!
It's exciting to realize that season preparation is speeding up. I don't know either of the pieces for the short or long programs, which is interesting. I do know The Umbrellas of Cherbourg music and am thrilled that she's using it. It's gorgeous, and Akiko will be able to convey the emotion of it.
I agree Olympia! Hope she gets the PCS scores she deserves and really up the ante and consistency
