    Whoa, that's a huge detailed interview, worth a translation. I'll put it on my backlist.

    Yes, it's an amazing interview. I've fallen in love with them even more after I've read it.

    Ekaterina is in London now, for the advanced courses of English. She enjoys sightseeing, attends the lessons and shares everything in vk:

    No time to translate, sorry, and there is pretty much text... But in general she looks absolutely excited and enjoys her stay!

    If you read between the lines of the interview it is very negative, as the only real positive stuff is that Solovyev is hungry for success and Katya has improved.
    Where is the positiveness of they are going to make an impact this season, and all is on track to return to being No. 1?

    Good Lord, Ravensburger waltz is such a dance about flow and swing and airiness and they're using such ponderous music. Skeptical is right. I'm downright flummoxed. It seems like it would be a good pattern for their style, but that music isn't going to do them any favors. Well let's hope they don't add a eurotrash disco pulse to it as well.

    I am looking forward to seeing the Anna K program though.

    I disagree. It's very light and positive interview. They are ready to skate wherever they can next season, just like Liza did last season. One competition at time. They were a little bit too cocky before and look what happened, no need to repeat that mistake.

    Edit: Oh, maybe we're talking about two different views. Sorry, I was meaning Katia's and Dima's interview.

    Since they're going for DRAMA (ha ha, big surprise here) in their SD, I think such ponderous music is going to serve them just well. I'm sure at least someone from their team will 'die', or will go crazy or something like that in both of their dances next season. And while I have nothing against drama for Karenina dance, I think they will go over the top in SD. It was Zhuline's idea to mix these two pieces after all.

    Their original idea was to mix 'Masqurade' with 'Farewell of Slavianka' march (check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9m9DyFTNFc). Thank God they decided to drop it. It was honestly terrible and absolutely tasteless choice in my opinion.

    Yes because when I think of an Austrian waltz, the first image that comes to mind is marching soldiers. Oy veh.
