    News Tuktamysheva changes new Short Program; explores new directions

    Spurred by a successful post-Olympic season, Russia's Elizaveta Tuktamysheva is preparing for next year by trying out a few new things. For the first time, the 2015 World Champion is working with Shae-Lynn Bourne and went to South Carolina last week.

    "Finally my dream comes true. I wanted to work with her for a long time," Tuktamysheva revealed. "I watched her programs and I thought, 'she is really doing masterpieces!'

    More...

    She got quickly to work with Bourne and they chose “Drumming Song” by Florence and the Machine for the Short Program. The Free Skating music was not yet determined at press time.

    Am so looking forward to seeing her next season! Are you a Florence fan? I am! Hope she is able to work in the triple Axel-double Axel sequence!

    I’ve thought for years that “Drumming Song” would make a great program.

    More Florence + the Machine in skating in general.

    I like Florence and the Machine, this could work well.

    Who's the choreographer for her free? Averbukh? Richaud?

    I'm so happy for Liza! I always enjoyed her skating but had hoped for her to have a collaboration with a choreographer who would be able to bring out her strong points. I'm going to Sk Amer and am happy to see she will be competing there! Best of luck to her!

    Oooooooooooh, I LIKE this. FABULOUS song and a great fit for Tukt. If done well, this will be Tukt's Skyfall and she will finally shake off all those (valid) empty choreography criticisms.

    This is my favorite program announcement of the upcoming season so far.

    Oh, cool song! Looking forward to seeing it next year, fingers crossed for her, it is an apocalyptic year for Russian ladies.

    Shae-Lynn + Florence and the Machine are the perfect combo for Liza!!!

    I am sure the choreo will be super watered-down by Mishin, but Liza will still sell the heck out of it.

    Interesting. Sounds promising but I hope the program won't get mishinized too much.

    That's a really interesting choice. Hoping to see her skate with a lot more speed and attention to the music. The song is fast and rhythmic.

    This is some really exciting news! I hope Mishin doesn't water it down too much as the season progresses.

    Don't forget to credit the original choreographer, Shae! Tom Lewkowitz.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this program. Hopefully, she finds a better costume designer, too.
