I’m sure Hanyu will skate the Nino Rota Romeo and Juliet program really well and make it a beautiful program. I just don’t like that DWilson is constantly copying the Russian couple and has no suggestion for creative programs and style for Hanyu. Even Jeff Buttle is more creative than DWilson.

"The "clowns" in the title do not refer to circus clowns. Instead, they symbolize fools, as Sondheim explained in a 1990 interview:
I get a lot of letters over the years asking what the title means and what the song's about; I never thought it would be in any way esoteric. I wanted to use theatrical imagery in the song, because she's an actress, but it's not supposed to be a circus [...] [I]t's a theater reference meaning "if the show isn't going well, let's send in the clowns"; in other words, "let's do the jokes." I always want to know, when I'm writing a song, what the end is going to be, so "Send in the Clowns" didn't settle in until I got the notion, "Don't bother, they're here", which means that "We are the fools."
In a 2008 interview, Sondheim further clarified:
As I think of it now, the song could have been called "Send in the Fools". I knew I was writing a song in which Desirée is saying, "aren't we foolish" or "aren't we fools?" Well, a synonym for fools is clowns, but "Send in the Fools" doesn't have the same ring to it."
Could someone refresh my memory as to how to do quotes?
Javier Raya ESP
SP Les Miserables; choreo by choreo by Iván Sáez
LP Sing, Sing, Sing; choreo by Iván Sáez
Actually it seems there's a a lot of BB & Nanami's emotional choreo in the FS, the final pose was in 2011 R&J step sequence, magic sit twizzles are back , Ina Bauer is to die for... the kid will fire the audience for sure!
Maybe this is Nanami's secret choreo !
But what's very surprising is the fact that the team has admitted the lack of creativity so candidly and easily , as it was a normal situation, but hasn't asked for any help which I think they should have done .
Dai’s program also looks a little uncreative, too much similarity with last season’s Moonlight Sonata program—similar style, similar expression, similar lyrical movements. I like Moonlight Sonata after watching it live at the worlds and think that looks like a better program than the new sp. Dai has only skated Moonlight Sonata program twice. I’d like to see him skate it at Olympics. It’s a nice classical program to skate in Sochi.
Btw I think Dai looks handsome and fit now. Wish he’ll stay healthy and energetic this season.
I missed Misha Ge's announcement of his LP
Misha Ge UZB
SP Adagio in G Minor by Albinoni; choreo by Misha Ge, Larisa Ge
LP Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op.43 by Sergei Rachmaninoff; choreo by Misha Ge, Larisa Ge
I hate instagram on the PC. Despite just having gotten an account, I can't view the picture and I can't even search for the person who uploaded it.
