Natasha Poly at Missoni, Fall/Winter 2006
I don’t take on those who can’t perform what I teach. If I hadn’t known that little Mao would have become a great skater in the future, our partnership wouldn’t have happened.
When I listened to music, I always saw Mao through the melody. we’ve been working together for a long time, she understands what I want her to perform with my choreography. She always gives me great satisfaction.
Doing choreography for her is like making her a costume by the name of music. I picked Rachmaninoff’s piece for her this time. It’s going to be a performance which remains in people’s heart. She expresses her whole life in figure skating through the music. “Overcome difficulties” is the theme of this program. If Mao could complete the whole program to Rachmaninoff’s melody, it exactly means that she overcomes them. That she represents her life as a person and a figure skater on ice.
