Researching Skating Programs
I am working on converting my skating tapes to DVD and while I was at it, I decided to make the mammoth project even bigger. I am trying to organize a database of the event, date, skaters, program, coaches and choreographers so I can quickly look for any skater or any program from any choreographer.
I have some holes in the information I have on DVD so far. I am trying to research on the internet but it can be slow. I was hoping some of you might have this information at hand from memory. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Just a few from 76.
Curry was his own choreographer and was coached by the Fassi's. His SP was to Rachmaninov IIRC
Cranston was his own choreographer too I think and was coached by Ellen Burka.
R&Z were coached by Tarasova.
Will need to watch the tape to figure out the music.
as far as I remember - Choreographers for Zhenia Plushenko's exhibitions at Worlds 2004 were Kirill Cyromiatnikov, Yuri Stepin and Edwald Smyrnov.
Libra - from Russia, with love
Wow, mpal, that's a great list! How'd you get all that stuff from 1976 and do you have anything else that rare? Would it be possible for you to make video clips from the DVDs to share with other fans?
Dorothy Hamill - SP Seahawk & LP Music Seahawk, Captain Blood, and Anna Karenina soundtracks
Toller Cranston - LP Music I haven't seen his 76 LP, but I remember reading it was "Vesti la Giubba" from Leoncavallo's "I Pagliacci"
Zagorska and Siudek - Coach Iwona Mydlarz-Chruscinska
Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze - SP Choreographer (Swan Lake) Their LP that year was by Alexander Matveev, so possible this is as well.
Jenni Meno & Todd Sand - SP Choreographer (Pomp & Circumstance) Lee Ann Miller and Coach John Nicks
Mandy Woetzel & Ingo Steuer - SP Choreographer (Enya) The song is called "No Holly for Miss Quinn" and it is by Enya and Coach Monika Scheibe

Oksana Kazakova & Artur Dimitriev - SP Choreographer (Sprach Zarathustra) 99% sure it was Alexander Matveev

Sarah Abitbol & Stephane Bernadis - Coach Stanislav Leonovitch
Xue Shen & Hongbo Zhao - SP Choreographer (Zigeunerweisen - Sarasate) From what I understand, during the late 90s they used to choreograph their own programs together with their coach Yao Bin.
[size=2]2003 Grand Prix Events
Galina MAniachenko - LP Choreographer (Musa Ler) Dmitry Dmitrenko and Coach Galina Kukhar
[size=2]2004 Worlds Exhibitions
Denkova and Staviyski - Exhibition music They called the program "In Heaven," but the music is "Cold Song" by Klaus Nomi
Carolina Kostner - Exhibition music "J'taime Encore" by CelineDion, Choreographer Megan Smith is her usual choreographer, although I'm not sure she did that particular program and Coach Michael Huth
Evgeny Plushenko - Choreographer for Beethoven's Fifth I understand that this was just him improvising with Edwin Marton
Kati Winkler & Rene Lohse - Coach Martin Skotnicky
Miki Ando - Music "Carmen Jones" soundtrack, Coach Nobuo Sato
Shizuka Arakawa - Choreographer for "If I Had My Way" I don't know, but she had this program before going to Tarasova, if that helps
Stefan Lindemann - Music "Don't Make Me Wait Too Long" by Seal
Setphane Lambiel - Choreographer This Shakira program was his SP earlier in the season that he dropped, so it was probably his usual choreographer, Salome Brunner
Belbin & Agosto - Choreographer of Elvis Medley This was their FD before, so I believe it was Igor Schpilband
2004 Ice Wars
Berezhnaya & Skiharulidze Tamara Moskvina of course, as coach. The "Let Me Fall" program was choreographed by Gorsha Sur. "Meadowlands" was done by Christopher Dean and Moskvina.
Maria Petrova & Alexei Tikhonov's coach for 2003-2004 season Lyudmila Velikova

Allen Schram (spelling ?) may be the choreographer since they were working together that year.
