    Sabinfire had the only copy, other than icenetwork's, alas.

    For completeness sake, here are the IN links. Sometimes, when the dance is listed separately on IN, you do not need to be a subscriber to watch, but you almost always need flashplayer. And while it is not an issue with US Nationals, for other events geoblocking is enforced.

    The good news is that IN keeps videos around for at least four years or even more.

    However, IN now has a video search function.

    Here are some results for stuff not available outside IN:

    There is a link for their US Nationals SD by itself.

    Happy Birthday, Madison!

    And to update this topic with a bit of 'old' news: Chock & Bates will be at Skate America & Cup of China for the 2015 GP series.

    Just saw on tumblr that Antonio Najarro is choreographing C/B's FD? Someone please tell me if this good or bad? If they're going with a Spanish-themed FD, I wouldn't mind that as I loved their Don Quixote routine in the SD this season & it was obviously very successful for them.

    I think that's great. I also loved their Don Quixote, and it was choreographed by Najarro.

    He could be doing their SD. People are assuming it is the FD because the SD is based around a waltz rather than a Spanish dance, but Najarro can do other styles. Here's two very good articles on Najarro as a skating choreographer

    In this article, he talks about working with Maddy and Evan last year.

    http://www.insideskating.net/2015/03...e-real-dancers

    This second article is about working with Abbott, Joubert, and Lambiel.

    http://absoluteskating.com/index.php...antonionajarro

    For one thing, he includes more arm and upper body movement than usual.
    The article is partially about Najarro's work with Jeremy Abbott. Here's what Jeremy had to say about it:

    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    He does like a lot of control over costumes though..

    Maddy and Evan just announced that they will be skating to Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2, Op. 18. They have been working with Antonio Najarro for the choreo. I added this to the Op, and added all their scores to their competitive history.

    Najarro tweeted this photo of Igor, Maddy, Evan and himself.

    I hope he is right, and that the talk will be positive.

    Well there is another icenetwork article out today:
    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2015/08/24/144471628
    Bates: 'We're trying to take that last step up'
    World silver medalists enter season with new look, lofty goals
    Ice Network on FacebookIce Network on Twitter
    Posted 8/24/15 by Lynn Rutherford


    Yet when they returned to training in Novi, Michigan, after the World Team Trophy in April, their coach, Igor Shpilband, threw them a curve.

    "I said, 'The judges need to see a completely new team. Don't do any moves the way you are used to. Every turn, every simple transition, do different,'" remembered Shpilband, who has coached the couple since they teamed up in 2011. "That was the idea for this season, right from the beginning."

    A change in ice dance rules gave the team more freedom to explore one of their greatest strengths. This season, not only are lift entrances and positions considered key points but lift exits are as well, opening up more options to gain the highest levels and the most points.

    The team settled on a piece of music that resonates deeply with skating fans: "Dark Eyes." The version they've chosen is performed by André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra

    Finally! Program news! I'm excited by the comments I've read about their approach this season, and can hardly wait to see the new programs. Great music choice in the Rachmaninoff, especially.

    They also announced today they'd be at Nebelhorn in September.

    Not thrilled with the music choices. Either of them. But I do like that Igor is moving them in new directions. So we'll see. But I'm hoping they don't add a backbeat to the Rachmaninoff.

    Well I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    So it looks like they are getting a Rohene Ward exhibition this year.

    Not only is the hair a give away, that is also pretty clearly the arena in Monument.

    That is really interesting. I'm not big on exhibition skating, but that I will definitely want to see!
