whole audience. With a smile that told a thousand words, she nodded
her head yes and Mark put a beautiful diamond ring on her finger and

PUTTING ON TH E RITZ
“Skating costumes have always been a part of the sport and provide much material for discussion, no pun intended. Whether simple black pants and a plain shirt, heavily beaded dresses, or shreds of chiffon draping the body, fashion has always been on the ice. What better way to formally acknowledge this synergy than the Disson Skating special, “Fashion on Ice.” This made-for-TV show was taped at the Sovereign Bank Arena on December 1 in Trenton, NJ and featured a stellar lineup,” said Michelle Wojdyla, a premier skating photojournalist.
Olympic champions Evgeny Plushenko and Shizuka Arakawa headlined a cast of world and national champions that included Shae-Lynn Bourne, Kyoko Ina and John Zimmerman, Jennifer Robinson, Steven Cousins, Silvia Fontana and Caryn Kadavy. Singer Chris Isaak got the audience rollicking with his live music for multiple numbers choreographed by Lee Ann Miller and Cousins.
