    I actually liked Michelle's "Bolero" program when she performed it earlier in the 2004-2005 season at 2004 Campbells. In fact, it was choreographed by Christopher Dean which I thought was kinda cool--didn't like it as much after she Morozov'd(?) it for Nationals and Worlds.

    I like Carolina's "Bolero". She's seems to be moving differently than she normally does and it's a departure from the other Boleros. I guess she can do it with an Italian flair? Haha. I don't know. It just feels like Lori Nichol decided to explode and Carolina reaped the benefits of it. Doesn't seem like there's any recycled choreography anywhere--kind of like the old Lori Nichol we came to love when she was choreographing Michelle's programs.

    You should compile a list for "Carmen". I'm sure that would keep you busy!

    I liked Khokhlova/Novitski's Bolero from 2005-2006.

    At the 2006 olympics, Chait/Sakhnovski skated to bolero and Savchenko/Szolkowy are skating to it this year.

    I thought this was a singles thread. If not so Stolbova/Klimov's sp from last year can be added

    Todd also skated to Bolero in SOI (circa 2006) as a tribute to Torvill & Dean (for that matter, Chris may have done some of the choreography for the program as I *think* he was still involved with SOI back then).

    Wow! Carolina was really on. Great music for her skating style and her jumps were huge and secure. I believe this was the best I have seen her skate and she is going to be tough to beat in the World Champions.
    My favorite Bolero is still Torvil and Dean. There was something magical about their skate in the 1984 Olympics.

    OT but I've always wondered how the top dance teams (V/M or D/W) would do if they took on Bolero. I think the key is having a very strong personality they'd really make the music their own.

    Or maybe they shouldn't even touch it with the ten-foot pole...?

    I wouldn't touch it, and not just because it's T&D's signature number.

    For one thing, if I were a skater, I'd want my best ever program (which of course would be whatever the current season was) to be competing only with the people at the competitions I was skating at, and not with some iconic program for the ages.

    I'd want people when they heard my music, to remember me, and me only, not T&D or whomever.

    In a gala, maybe, just so that I could demonstrate I could skate to it; as a competitive program? no. Particularly not in dance.
