Since breaking up with her coach Brian Orser, figure skating star Kim Yu-na has moved from the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club, where she had been training for four years, to the Granite Club in Toronto.
The Granite Club operates a private membership program and is where Shae-Lynn Bourne, a former ice dancer and now a choreographer, is based. Kim commissioned Bourne to choreograph a short program for the new season.
For the free program, Kim is again working with her long-time choreographer David Wilson.
Kim retains membership of the Cricket Skating and Curling Club so she can still use the rink freely, but that might result in awkward encounters with Orser, who is based there.
