I like her LP and thought it was very creative in choreography before I see this:

I guess I've found all the inspirations for the choreography:)

As much as I admire Caro's ability to generate speed so easily, I felt something was missing. After seeing these video I believe what Caro missed was a clear mood or character, or passion. She skated beautifully but seems without purpose.

She told in an interview that she watched a lot of records from Maurice Béjart and others to get inspired on how to express herself, so that's not new. She did the same last year with Mozart and you see she take inspiration in that. But how she bring herself on the ice, it's her own way to get her music out there and bring her skate to that level.

Thanks for the vid, demarinis5. Wow, she looks like a goddess on ice.

The best of luck to her! I haven't heard much about her this season, which makes me sad. :(

I just wanted to wish Caro the very best. I can't believe she placed only second in SP for team skate (for my money, she should've done better than what she's got, but that's my biased opinion), but her skate was lovely, and I want her to rock it. Hopefully, the third time is the charm. /fingers crossed

She is really charming, and her arms movements... not many ones can do that, so elegant. :love: Actually I prefer her over Kim Yuna.

Carolina is so gracious and thoughtful :) This is what she had to say about performing & the Japanese audience:

"Performing to “Ave Maria”, Kostner hit a triple flip-triple toeloop, a triple loop, double Axel and picked up a level four for two spins and the footwork. The 2012 World Champion earned 77.24 points. “This afternoon I felt much more nervous than in Sochi. I kept asking myself why. I think I was not sure if I was able to skate one more time with such a freedom, but then I kept on thinking about the Japanese audience, they have been waiting since 2011 to have this world championship here, so for me it felt almost an honor to skate and go on the ice and skate, and I felt the appreciation of the people. I calmed down and to remember what is important in skating (is) not just to think about the jumps and other elements, but to create something together”, the Olympic bronze medalist told the post event press conference."

Keep calm and you will perform well. You are one of a kind, Caro. Best wish for you tomorrow.
