Who has skated to Bolero?
« on: June 13, 2014, 12:41:48 PM »
Does anyone know of any top skaters who skated to Bolero besides Torvill and Dean, Caro, and MK?

Awesome, thanks. I knew about Caro, not the rest though.

I just love how Lori Nichols choreographed Caro's, because it is so alike the ballet, which is more like how I interpret the song.

I have to admit, I'm surprised others skate to it. As soon as I hear the first beats of that music, I see 6.0's (and purple).  Expectations are high, and if one didn't live up to them......  Consequently I thought CK was ballsy (and I do enjoy her as a skater).

It is amazing music though- I love it when it comes on the radio.

I agree, and it evokes a completely different feeling than other performances that have used it.

Interestingly, bolero was featured in an episode of Cosmos recently and my sister contacted me dying to figure out what that piece of music was that was now stuck in her head.. because she couldn't figure out.  I had a good laugh since it is just about the most recognizable piece of music to any skater :)

I'm not a fan of this music, personally.
