Julie's Keri Lotion Figure Skating Classic Report

Long Program--Dante's Prayer

Dante's Prayer

I like this program (a lot) but I felt there was something missing. Perhaps taking notes detracted from it...in fact, in retrospect, I'm sure of it.


back spiral with a hand down (on purpose)
3 flip
reverse camel
3 lutz
2 axel
change edge spiral
3 sal(?) (obstructed view)

5.9 5.8 5.8 5.9 5.9 5.9 5.9
5.9 5.9 6.0 5.9 6.0 5.9 5.9

There wasn't so much a standing ovation for Michelle so much as there was a stampede to throw flowers, gifts, etc....


Costume was blue and black, sleeveless...(her usual costume for this number.)

Short Program--Carmen

Fate of Carmen (and yes, it IS lesser known cuts...at least Stacy and I agree on that...)


3 lutz-2toe
2 axel
3 lutz (?)
sit-eggbeater-change-sit-eggbeater (or Y)
change edge spiral (yay!!!)
flying sitspin

Sorry for the lack of details, but last year I got so into her program I forgot to write her elements! This is a nice program...lacking a little of the Michelle Magic but I like it...give it a little settle time and the spark will be there, I can just about guarantee it.

5.8 5.8 5.9 5.8 5.9 5.8 5.9
5.9 5.9 5.9 5.9 5.9 5.9 5.9

NOT leaving a lot of room...Stacy thinks that she would have gotten at least a couple of 6.0s if she'd skated later. I think it might've been the lack of the total spark that I mentioned...whatever, nice marks, she deserved them IMO.


Michelle's costume was the Dream of Desdemona one...the black one with the arm/back/neckline sheer witha pattern and spangles on it...one of my favorites by her.

Thanks Julie!
