My thanks to Pasha and her cast for meeting their fans wishes and congratulations for a great job. Principal Skater, Ms. Pasha Grishuk with ten cast members, Producer, Director, Stage manager, Choreographer and Costume Master. It's cold on this ice! Welcome to showbiz!, LOL Full size rink. Because of difficulty in booking ice time we have to rehearse in the 'twilight zone', 11:00am-8:00pm!. Only problem is that 'some' people have to work during the day too, and sleep only three/fourhours per day. Grrrrrr... Day (err, night!) one... Cast is disoriented and tired already from travelling. Our 'intrepid' Head Choreographer (Yuliana Malkhaissants from the Bolshoi Theatre) doesn't care! - the show must go on - and we finish nine hours later... a few of our younger,less travelled skaters wondered what they had signed up for!(LOL.) Pasha's 'Prince' has been chosen. A Russian 'gentleman' 26 years old and a great skater! They break off and begin to rehearse separately from the others. Pasha is given the job of choreographing ALL their routines!! Together they skate a wonderful 'adagio' that will bring tears to your eyes - very romantic!!! Pashenka's height extention on her 'spiral' is something amazing to behold - her own Bolshoi Ballet training is soooo obvious to see. Day (well night) two and the 'cast' is beginning to resemble a 'touring troupe'. Every scene has been meticulously choreographed down to the NOTE,and progress is seen to be made. (Aside: Some of the younger ensemble cast had NO idea in the beginning WHO the "beautiful, wonderful female skater" was and were IN AWE when they discovered that it is indeed 'THE' Pasha Grishuk, Two-time (and current) Olympic Champion... they gave her a standing ovation at the end of one of her routines!!!) Day (er, night) three and Our Pashenka is given 'the news' that due to time constraints she must choreograph two solo numbers for herself also! She goes at it with a vengeance... soon she has it down, throwing in two double sal's one after the other - with amazing spins, spirals and the fastest and most agile footwork I have ever seen - she truly flies over the surface... looking VERY happy and content!!! The ice IS her element after all!. The cast is now learning how to act like 'rats' for one scene, LOL, and it's pretty funny to watch )) Our Choreographer decides (at the last minute!) that she wants to change some music - so we dash to the sound studio. (The hotel computer decides NOT to verify our charge account for food - so the fearless Producer has to sort out the mess)... Oh well, who ever said it was going to be easy??? Two new skaters have been chosen by Pasha and her management to be added to the cast of Nutcracker on Ice. One of the skaters is Sharon Wissel, a professional from the New England Figure Skating Club in Marlboro, Massachusetts where Pasha skated prior to moving to California. Members included: Lucinda Ruh, Surya Bonaly, Lu Chen, Scott Williams, Travoti & Witherby and "special guest" eight year old Marina Guterres - who won a competition to skate with Pasha! "Surya Bonaly" performed a nice program to "Anastasia" (complete with backflip!) and "Lu Chen" (looking great in a white shiny and fur lined costume !) vamped her way thru 'Santa Baby!' Next was "Scott Williams" who 'barrel-rolled' his way thru 'Let it Snow.' Then a long time pro couple, "Lia Travoti & Russ Witherby" skated to 'Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas.' Next up was "eight year old Marina Guterres" who cried when chosen, as Pasha is her "inspiration" - and she was absolutely "thrilled" to be skating with our Ice Angel! Then the Star of the show emerged again, Pasha skated to "Magic". Pasha skated a number of solo moves: including beautiful handwork, spins, spirals and amazing footwork, solo and withg Marina!!!! (The finished TV shots are incredible!). Pasha's hair and makeup was specially done by Jose Eber salon of Beverly Hills. Pasha wore a newly made outfit - mostly pink, with scarves and lots of sequence! (Here is the BEST part!!! LOL): The end of Pasha's routine involved making a 'white Dove' appear (by magic!) to be released into the night... Pasha took the bird home with her (to look after!) two day's prior to the show (had to be trained - ya know!,LOL) The day before the show, the 'bird' became "real quiet" - and Pashenka was worried... everyone said "no problem". Then five minutes before the show Pasha discovered WHY the bird was sooooo quiet. When she opened the birdbox - she saw a beautiful bird EGG!!!! Unbelievable! So Pasha decided to not use the Dove after all, LOLOL!!. Featuring international award-winning Russian skaters performing breathtaking jumps and spins and narrated by two times Olympic Champion, four times World Champion and three times European Champion Ice Dance, Pasha Grishuk, Sleeping Beauty will captivate you with its charming and elegant kingdom on ice. The classic take begins with and evil spell cast on a baby princess at her christening by a jealous wicked fairy. Watch the adventure unfold as the evil spell comes true and meet the one person who can free the princess from her horrible fate.

Pasha Grishuk . org --- Information / How it all began ---

Pasha was born on March 17th, 1972 in Odessa, Ukraine (former USSR).
At age 2, she was already an artist, copying some ice dance moves from ballets she watched on TV. T wo years later, as she was walking with her mum, she heard some music coming from an ice rink, and managed to take a look inside, through a hole in the wall. She immediately felt in love with ice skating: she wanted to do like these young skaters who seemed to fly in the air, wearing beautiful white skates with sparkling blades. Oksana's skates At first, the teacher refused to take Pasha in the club: the season had already began, Pasha was too young, the club didn't have skates small enough for her feet... but Pasha was so determined that the teacher had to give in and finally let her go on the ice. She discovered that the little girl was very talented and accepted her to take lessons in the club with the other children. Very soon, Pasha was shown as an example to the other young skaters of the club. At that time, Pasha was skating as a single. When she reached age 10, she was asked to skate at Dnieprodzerjinsvk (a town located about 400km far from Odessa) ice rink for Brejnev's jubilee. Pasha made such a great impression upon the president of USSR that he asked her to skate again and she improvised a routine that was even nicer than the first one. Then, Pasha moved to Moscow with her mum and began skating under Elena Alexandrova's guidance (still in single), but when Natalia Linichuk and Gennadi Karponosov (Olympic champions in 1980) began coaching in 1982, Natalia proposed Pasha to turn to ice dancing... Then, Pasha moved to Moscow with her mum and began skating under Elena Alexandrova's guidance (still in single), but when Natalia Linichuk and Gennadi Karponosov (Olympic champions in 1980) began coaching in 1982, Natalia proposed Pasha to turn to ice dancing... It was the begining of an exceptional career : Pasha became an ice-dancer and was paired with Alexandr Chichkov.
