I’m always excited about Satoko’s new program because she’s a great performer, one of the best in the world now, who is very attentive to details and whose choreography and movements are always polished almost to perfection. So what can I say about this short program?
First of all, I need to say that I’m surprised. I didn’t expect to see Satoko doing such a different style, not her usual classic, lyrical, a bit romantic skating. Especially I didn’t expect her doing such confident and sexy and kind of program. With a lot of new moves for Satoko, with different kind of self-presentation on the ice. And I like it. I like when skaters go out of their comfort zone, take a risk and try something new. It doesn’t always work out, but I always appreciate the effort.
As for Satoko, I even more surprised to see that she actually looks good in this kind of style! She feels it, the moves looks natural. I really liked the first part of the program. The second looks rough, the step sequence require polishing and work. But in case with Miyahara you can be sure that this work will be done and I’m looking forward to see the development of this program! Oh and I think trousers/jumpsuit will be a good idea for the costume)
