I'm making a poll on Mao's EX programs as a companion piece to the SP & LP polls I did earlier.

Again, it was hard for me to pick a favorite. It's really a tie between So Deep is the Night and Over the Rainbow. I love the maturity, elegance, and flowness Mao displayed in So Deep is the Night. Her costume there is also my favorite. But I am going to vote for Over the Rainbow because the youthful exuberance and lightness of this program just personifies Mao. flower

Por Una Cabeza Love Hearts Love Hearts Love Hearts
Love, love, love this program! Music, choreography, her dress, the way Mao presented it, her cheerful and playful smile - I adore it al! Many Hearts
Actually I like all of Mao's exhibitions, but this one is special to me. In my opinion it is one of the best exhibitions ever!

It's between Caprice and Ballade for me. I think Ballade will be my favorite once Mao gets settled and comfortable with it, but for now it's a tie. Caprice shows Mao's joyful and exuberant side, while Ballade shows how balletic and graceful she is...gah, I can't decide!

For me, it's definitely So deep is the night, but I can see her new Chopin EX becoming a favorite of mine once she preforms it a few more times...

I can just watch her EX from the 2008 4CC over and over again Smile

Great, yet another difficult choice to make... Hell, no!

For now, it's Caprice because I loved the step sequence near the end + the fan, but Over the Rainbow (particularly the 2007 ver. with Aero), Singx3, and Ballade are all up there too, rank wise. Swoon

But Por una Cabeza stands out a bit!

It's really hard to pick one... Unconscious
For me, So deep is the night, Por una cabeza and Ballade#1 are same rank. I can watch them thousand of times. Love Hearts But I picked So deep is the night because I love the grace and free expression she shows. Mushy Love
It may change to Ballade#1 during this season. flower

How can I pick one? Every exhibition is special~!
But I chose Caprice because of the exquisite choreography and joyful expression Mao gives during her performances. But honestly, So Deep is The Night and Over the Rainbow are good too!

I really loved all of Mao's recent Ex numbers, it's almost impossible to pick one... I like So Deep is the Night, Por Una Cabeza, SingX3, Caprice and Ballade all the same. Swoon

I ended up voting for Ballade, because I love all the moves in the field and the maturity of the program... It was still a bit unpolished at DoI, but the clips from The Ice were totally lovely... Love

I think all of them were really special in their own way, though! Love Hearts

I think I have to go with Ballade, though she has many very nice EX programs. But for me, Ballade highlights everything that is beautiful, ethereal, and graceful about Mao. I never get tired of watching it!

I'm not surprised "Por una cabeza" is in the lead Wink I love all Mao's exhibition programs (especially tango, Caprise & Ballade Wub ) except "Habanera".

I wasn't a big fan of "Habanera" in the 2006-07 season, but then I watched the same exhibition performed by Mao while she was still a novice skater:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cm5xsi9Ypu0
...and I loved it! The choreo remainded almost the same, but the program was build around those qualities (spped , deep edges, back flexibility) that were affected the most during the 2006-07 season, when Mao was going through her first growth spurt. What's more, the black-fuchsia costume looked very cutte on young Mao, but a few years later it just seemed a bit juniorish.

The comparison of those 2 versions of Habanera (and also Czardas from the 2006 SA practice to the lversions performed later) made me realize just how brilliant a program "Nocturne" was - it was still quite demanding, but it helped to hide Mao's weaknesses at that time while highlighting her posture, edgework and beautiful spirals.

I love "Ballade" but I still don't know if I love it more than "Por Una Cabeza" or "Caprice". I put it at the same level as "So Deep Is The Night" because I love that EX too, just not as much as my top two. But ultimately I voted for "Por Una Cabeza". It's simply perfect.

It's hard to choose one from her EX No But my favorite is Ballad No.1. I think this program is really nice for her, from music, the choreography to the simple white costume(she looks so good in this dress Love Hearts ) Chopin's soft and beautiful music really suits for Mao Very Happy
But I love all the other EX from her, too!!
