We’ve already seen Shoma Uno’s free program and recently he showed his new short program. So, I decided to make one short review on both his programs.
Short program: Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra
Nice and lovely program, it suits Shoma’s soft skating. But in comparison with his last year’s SP it looks a bit ordinary….And I still remember Tatsuki Matida’s sp on this music….his program was breathtaking. Maybe, Shoma’s program will be also magnificent at competitions. Anyway, lyrical programs suit him a lot.
Free program: Buenos Aires Hora Cero + Balada para un loco
Not an easy program and it requires a lot of work, but I think all this efforts will be rewarded. I like the first part more. Choreography is done more sophisticatedly in accordance with the music. But as for me, his moves lacks some sharpness….I think he’s too soft for tango. Turn off the music and you won’t gues that it’s tango. Ok, maybe red shirt will give you a hint. The second part is more in his style, but the music is weird….I mean he looks weird skating to this husky female voice with a sinister laugh at the end…..But I always ready to take my words back, it’s still off-season and he skated this program at the small ice with show’s spotlights, so maybe at the competitions the program will cause a different impression.
And I like the simplicity of the costumes. So, please don’t change it to something over decorated and with plunging neckline)
