if you're a figure skater, what would you be?
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?
Skater: Everything about Gracie Gold, hair, body type, speed, power, consistency, hollywood like beauty, musicality etc. and the legs of Carolina Kostner.
Music: something fast tracked
Country: doesnt matter
Style: intense, power, speed and dramatic
costumes: anything with glitters, preferably, grey, blue and yellow/golden dress
Do you mean who would I be? I'm female, but I want to be Yuzuru Hanyu without the frilly costumes LOL
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.

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.
BTW if I'm an ice dancer, my name would be Blackpackova
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.
Hospitalized. In traction. (Damn ankles! Grrrrrrrrrrr!)
everything about michelle kwan except with the consistency of yuna kim
i could probably take over the world and make everyone genuflect whenever they talk to me
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.
You're Max Aaron?
