At the Skate America Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy demonstrated their new short program. Under the well-known song “Khorobushko” they skated in unison with the spectators’ applause. German couple is always able to captivate audiences. They can skate to the lyrical music or some fun music but doing it at the highest level of skating, they leave no one indifferent. Their new program, however like all previous ones, is full of great highest level elements, high speed and accuracy of the music theme interpretation.Also worth noting is very good progress from competition to competition from Canadians Kirsten Moore-Towers/Dylan Moscovitch and Americans Caydee Denney/Jeremy Barrett.
