    Stars On Ice 2014 American Cast Announced

    Stars On Ice just made a press release about the US cast for Stars On Ice this spring.

    Here's a link to the article: http://www.starsonice.com/news.html?n_id=432

    But to save you guys time the skaters mentioned are:
    Meryl Davis and Charlie White Headline (GREAT FOR THEM!)
    Ashley Wagner
    Gracie Gold
    Jeremy Abbott
    Jason Brown
    Marissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir
    Madison Chock and Evan Bates
    Ryan Bradley
    Mirai Nagasu


    It's a small cast and I guess I was also hoping for some international artists but I guess in these days of belt tightening you prioritize your skaters. They made a point of noting that the entire Bronze Medal winning group from the Team Event is on the tour and I'm really REALLY pleased to see Mirai is also doing it.

    She made such a strong impression at Nationals this year with the crowd. She also posted to great videos on twitter from her instagram of her practicing a layback with a hair cutter into the bielmann where she holds her boot (the position looked great!) and then a second one today where she does the pearl into the beillmann with the boot hold. Both very impressive.

    Does anyone know if they'll be adding to the cast or how the format of the show will be? Either way it's nice to see the announcement. I may actually consider going to the Anaheim show. I haven't been in years.

    It's actually a great cast. I will attend the Portland show and will try to take advantage of my DSLR camera. Hopefully I won't be kicked out. It should be a fine addition to my existing gallery:

    Oh, this makes me so happy. I am going to the Chicago show and was really hoping that Jason Brown and Davis/White would be there. Will be thrilled to see all the others as well.

    They say on the website that additional guest skaters will be added. I'm assuming that Polina will be a guest at the CA shows.

    The article forgets to mention that Mirai is also a former National Champion in addition to being the current US Bronze medalist.

    I'm going in Chicago as well. Can't wait to see Jason and Gracie skating in their hometown!!!
    And also, Meryl and Charlie, gosh, I can't describe my level of excitement there.

    Great to see some new people in this cast. It looks to be a good show!!! So glad Mirai was included. There is another life after Nationals.

    As mentioned in the other SOI thread, the Shibutanis are cast members for the entire SOI Japan tour this year.

    I wonder (b/c of wishful thinking ) whether the Shibs also might be announced as guest performers for certain stops on the SOI U.S. tour -- e.g., for the Apr 27 Detroit show at Joe Louis Arena, which takes place after the Japan tour ends.

    Polina will probably a guest in the West Coast stops. I hope Zhang & Bartholomay will be guests in Florida.

    ^ Where in PA? Near Hershey or Pittsburgh? We usually go to the Hershey show, but this time we're going to the Newark, NJ one (closer to Philly).

    See also: https://twitter.com/DavidBaden/statu...25703297916928 (Mar 12 tweet mentions both Kerrs + Buttle and Roca)

    Digression: I wonder whether SOI prep is the reason that Jason Brown still is in LA today.

    (The Kerrs are not on the announced cast lists for any country.

    That's Yuzuru Hanyu!

    (The caption under the photo definitely says so.)
