Gregory/Petukhov to work with Plushenko

News just in; Melissa Gregory and Denis Petukhov, the 2004-2007 U.S. ice dance silver medalists, are going to be choreographing Plushenko's long program for the 2009-2010 season. Plushenko has been training every day apparently and with Melissa and Denis's choreography he will definitely increase the hype around his comeback. He really sounds serious this time, despite the fact that he has been "announcing his comeback" a few times now.

Program of the Day is one example of the extraordinarly beautiful cheoreography that Melissa and Denis have done, in the exhibition program they did with Johnny Weir to "Fallen Angels". To make three skaters work together so seamlessly in a program requires real talent; Plushenko is in good hands.
