S/B fd seems so intresting! Hansel and gretal witch hunters.
For anyone who missed it you can still go the link and watch the practices... that's what I'm doing at the moment
So cool... Watching the practices almost makes me feel like I'm actually there.
I adore the music but I wouldn't go so far as to say it steals the show from Tessa and Scott!
It's funny I struggle when I see skaters use the music from Pina. For me it's definitely a moment when I have to forget about my old associations with the music and try to appreciate the skating. That was especially difficult when S/S first used it and were doing a mimic of gestures and ideas created by Tanztheater Wuppertal (I should add I am a professional dance/theater artist and for me, Pina Bausch is arguably the most important choreographer of the 20th century... but I digress).
I think one thing I'm realizing is since the movie Pina came out, the particular song Lilies of the Valley has become the Carmen of the dance and theater world in many ways. Good music, that gets way overused. But to be fair the music isn't used that much in figure skating... yet...
However it looks like Jeremy is doing his own take on it and I'm looking forward to seeing the fully fleshed out concept! He looked to be in pretty good shape at the Japan Open so I hope he's building on what he did there.
I really like S/B programs

music pls ?
shame Ivan was sick at the start of the season, lost a host pick too
but I think they are getting back to form
Good luck to Nobu! Wishing him a podium finish, or even a win at Skate Canada. One reason is I LOVE his programs two of them finally; which hasn't happened to me before so that I have been waiting and waiting aaand waiting ever since Nobu moved up senior circuit. The other reason is because he probably is the one who needs every points thruout this GrandPrixSeries+Final among Japanese boys, if we look at the current World Standings: http://www.isuresults.com/ws/ws/wsmen.htm
And a bit surprised Yuzuru is above Patrick now. wow...
Yes, so would I.
Does they have a link stream for the practice this morning ?
