    Emily Samuelson and Evan Bates split up


    Shpilband said that Madison Chock, who took ninth at worlds with Greg Zuerlein (who retired after the season), has had several tryouts with potential partners. There's also the news of another acclaimed team that has split: Emily Samuelson and Evan Bates.

    Samuelson and Bates, two-time U.S. medalists and 2010 Olympians who have competed together since 2001, ended their partnership several weeks ago, their coaches said. They didn't compete last season because of Bates' severe Achilles' tendon injury; each is looking for new partners.
    Grr.... not enjoying this off-season.

    Wondered why he wasn't there at Skate for Hope last weekend.....Emily looked great though. She did a fun number to All the Single Ladies with Rachael, Caitlin & Alexe.

    Her lines are so beautiful I hope she finds someone!

    Ugh. I guess it's not a huge shock, but they had so much potential.

    Chock and Bates, perhaps?

    The depth of USA Dance teams seems to be greatly diminished and it's disappointing to see so many Dance/Pairs teams splitting up.

    Wishing them all good luck in the future.
