This program was taken from a larger group number from the 1996-1997
tour of Stars on Ice. That group number featured Kurt and the rest of
the cast, passing around and trying to gain possession of a red hat,
and was choreographed by Christopher Dean. Kurt used that same red
hat as a prop in this individual program. For the group number, the
SOI cast apparently had a central fund of money - skaters had to put
money into that fund everytime they dropped the hat, giving them extra
incentive to keep the hat going and off the ground.
