    if you're a figure skater, what would you be?

    ​For me:

    Ice dancer
    Partner: On the ice, I'd need a man of average height as I'm short (don't want any Coomes and Buckland jokes), Maxim S, Lambiel, Ponomarenko, Dai
    Coach: Krylova, although her husband's unibrow might be too distracting
    Choreographer: Shanti Rushpaul, Rohene Ward
    ​Swan Song/Our Bolero: Chi Mai by Ennio Morricone
    Country: Tajikistan, I'm sure they need more representation, I'll pay a random Tajik guy to marry me for the citizenship ;-)
    Style: intense, dark, dramatic, brooding
    costumes: understated but still related to the theme

    How about you?

    Music: something fast tracked
    Country: doesnt matter
    Style: intense, power, speed and dramatic
    costumes: anything with glitters, preferably, grey, blue and yellow/golden dress

    I love a lot of figure skaters

    Skater : body fit and very flexible, speed, power, gracefulness, musicality, especially today generation on ice : Yuna Kim, Nathalie Pechalat, Tessa Virtue, Julia Lipnitskaia, Gracie Gold, Carolina Kostner ...if I were a man (Lambiel, Hanyu, Takahashi, Fernandez, Ten, Chan, Abbott, Amodio)
    if a partner: Stéphane Lambiel, Maxim Stavisky, Christopher Dean, Jeremy Abbott, Nikita Katsalapov
    Coach: Krylova, Zhulin, Orser
    Choreographer: Rohene Ward , Christopher Dean, Camerlengo, Ilya Averbukh, Lori Nichol, Zhulin , Shae-Lynn Bourne
    ​Music : any kind from classical to modern, jazz, ethnics, but I don't like badly modernized classical music, and I don't like songs for the most of them
    Country: does not matter
    Style: intense, dramatic, funny, special, be different
    costumes: related to the theme, sophisticated, be different

    Yuz is androgynous.

    You can interpret the question any way you want

    Mainly, I wanted to know what people on this forum what kind of skaters they would like to be. What discipline, style, music, coach, partner (if ice dance or pairs is chosen), choreographer, etc.

    Personally, I wish I had parents who would have given me the opportunity to start skating as a young child. If I ever reincarnate, I'd like to be an ice dancer. Now it's too late. I hate the feeling of wearing skates - very painful, far more painful than any stilettoes I ever had to wear. I learned to skate a bit as an adult, and I have no talent. I know there are adult competitions and there are plenty of people who compete as adult amateurs, but I really rather spend my money and time elsewhere. I can only enjoy skating as a spectator and not as a participant.

    I agree with Ten! I would like him as a partner too. His posture is divine.

    As for Chris Dean as choreographer, I don't know, I was never too impressed with the programs he choreographed for others; I only loved the programs he choreographed for himself and the Duchesnays.

    I don't want Zhulin.... or Morozov. I don't want my face to end up in soup

    Definitely singles skater. Hybrid of the best of Carolina Kostner and Alissa Czisny with the same wholesome girl next door appeal but gorgeous nonetheless. Maybe add a bit of Yuna's steely nerves to cancel out the head casing tendencies. Style: artsy, more on the lyrical side. Music: classical. Signature pieces: something by Debussy, Saint Saens, Corelli, maybe Afternoon of a Faun. Country: someplace western European. Costumes: understated simple lines but bring on the Swarovski. Coach: not sure but Obersdorf seems like a nice place. Choreographer: Stephane Lambiel.

    Male, Singles. I'm a bit of a tomboy

    Think Ryan Bradley in music-appropriate costumes. Rohene Ward as choreographer, hands down. I would Entertain the socks off that audience!

    I'd retire after winning 3 Junior Champs & medalling (bronze) at my first and only World Champs cos I wouldn't deal with the senior pressure as well. I wouldn't do quads at all, I'd concentrate on clean programs. I'd be known for my amazing, intricate and long step sequences, lots of Rippon & 'tano Lutzes and some awesome signature spin position I'd invented that only I could do. I'd represent Finland of course, because I'd instantly be a huge celebrity due to historical lack of male talent here.

    This is fun

    Hmmm.. Since I used to be into sports and not really artistic. I think I would get higher in TES but really low in PCS. And I would most probably be a headcase, always getting nervous before taking the ice.

    Hahaha. Sorry I'm not that familiar as much with the male figure skaters. But I do know that Max used to be a hockey player and is also criticized for his lack of artistry but I didn't know that he had a problems with his nerves.
