Icedancers Margarita Drobiazko and Povilas Vanagas just performed in the Proximus Stars on Ice shows in Antwerp, Belgium - again, they have been part of the Antwerp cast since the shows began in 2003.

"We were very happy to be invited again", Povilas told us. "It's a big production show and we like those, and the audience in Antwerp is always great."

The shows were more than great, and soon you'll be able to read all about them on Absolute Skating. But there's even more coming up. Povilas and Margarita are busy preparing for their own tour, a subject he likes to talk about.

"This is our fifth anniversary with the tour and we have an extra special cast. Margarita and I will of course do all the shows together with Stanick Jeannette, Rory Burghart, Laurent Tobel and ice acrobats Akop Manoukian & Armen Saakian. The big star is Alexei Yagudin who will be with us for all but two shows, and when he's not there we'll have Marina Anisina & Gwendal Peizerat. Also Tatiana Navka & Roman Kostomarov will join us in Vilnius and Warsaw, so there are lots of Olympic Champions."

The show in Vilnius has been televised in previous years, and this time will be no exception, so those of you who are lucky enough to see it - enjoy! Of course seeing the show live is even better and Povilas hopes many will take the opportunity to come and watch great skating.

"The theme of the tour is the Phantom and the story will connect all the performances. My wife is good at planning those kinds of things; she's been working on it for months already. There will be groupnumbers, lots of them. This time we'll spend more time rehearsing than ever before so we can put on an even better show than before."

Hearing all this we have no doubt the shows will be wonderful, and they are coming up very soon, here are the details:
