    This is what skating is about. Thank you, Audrey and Doug, for showcasing these talented skaters and taking our sport back to its roots. You can’t appreciate where you’re going if you don’t respect where you’ve been. YAS does that through these challenges.

    It is great to see these skaters being so creative. I am impressed with all of these pieces as it takes so much work to take an idea and advance it into a finished program. Keep it up! I am a new fan. Thanks, Audrey for giving these young talents an outlet like YAS. Kudos.

    I just want to say how much I absolutely LOVE this! YAS4 is shaping up to be the best yet!

    I would like to vote for Eliot.

  21. Jenny Needham August 17, 2013 at 2:17 pm #

    Thank you to Audrey for her brilliance in creating and growing this program/concept. As a skater and life long skating fan, I am loving this! To the choreographers, thank you for your creativity and courage, for sharing your talents with all of us. Being a child and skater of the 70’s, I greatly appreciate when I watch skating and programs that are about beautiful skating, unique movements, where you lose yourself in the story and art in front of you. That’s what this does! Again, thank you to all involved! I’m loving it!

  22. Sarah August 17, 2013 at 6:56 pm #

    The skater in Kate McSwains video is my best friend. She is incredible and the choreography is incredible as well!! Vote for Kate!

    Just so wonderful watching these young and talented artists emerge. Thank you Audrey, Sheila and Doug for this inspiring creative outlet….so hard to narrow down to just one vote! They are all so good and different from each other…great job everyone!

    Really like the edge use in Elliot’s and the concept in Nanoha’s programs. Wish I could vote for both lol.
