You have a very lively imagination. I thought I did, but personally, I cannot imagine Mishin nervous.

Seems like it. It never occurred to me they were the same given Liza's choreography and skating... She needs Osmond's speed, frenetic energy and charisma to pull this off, but it's not working. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt here and say it's too early.

A/E What a beautiful FD best wishes to them for the new season; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POzDu6UBtqk

^^ I can't begin to imagine what beautiful programs they have for their other students. I sincerely hope P/B have excellent programs because Krylova and Carmelengo, look to be on fire this year, as always

Thank you for posting the A/E FD. When I heard "Bollywood" I thought "Poor Man's D/W." That was wrong; it's not how I felt watching it.
I'll leave it to the more learned to address the technical aspects... but I will say I loved the edging in the circ steps.
The feel of the program was fresh and new. Something different. I liked it. A lot.
They are quite a good-looking couple, aren't they? I suppose they don't make ugly ice dancers.

More or less: more is more
I went over the list from page 1, and to my surprise not that many skaters have chosen something Russian or Russian-themed. Compared to a non-Olympic season it seems about average.
Popular this season is something more Spanish or Latin-themed. Carmen seems popular (as always).
Lés Miserables is also a hit this season.
I just remember at the 2006 Winter Olympics, quite a lot of the eventuel medalists skated to something Italian-composed. Of course, a lot the top-skaters have yet to announce their program music.

Even for Vancouver you had those country themes because the United States was right next to Canada! LOL? But few are doing Russian composers.

Jason Brown's "Riverdance" LP at Glacier Falls Summer Classic.
He won the event with a total score of 242.29. You can see the senior men's final result here and breakdown of the free skate scores (a bit fuzzy, but it's better than nothing).
Keegan Messing's "The Mask of Zorro" LP:
Karen Chen's LP:
Satoko Miyahara's "Poeta" LP:

This is probably a dumb question, but I'm not a skater so I've always wondered how skaters learn and remember their choreo after first getting their programs choreographed. Is it written down/recorded/documented somehow? Often these early season showings seem a little empty or incomplete in places, so how is it that skaters fill in these gaps on their own after spending just a week or so with their choreographers? I know many skaters will go back for more sessions and fine-tuning throughout the season, but what do they initially take home?
