Hey guys,
Just wondering...who is your favourite dancer?? Are you into J-LO, Brittney Spears, Justin timberlake, stars from dancing with the stars....Who are your favourites..? This doesn't necessarily have to be salsa....it could be hip hop, ballroom...whatever!

I'd love to know! Post you-tube video links here if you have clips!

For the record, I LOVE watching good old' Cheryl Buyrk from Dancing with the Stars...I think she is so hot on the dance floor...it may be because of her partner (Christian Latin Lover) that I am biased...For the males....Good Ol' JT totally knows how to bring "sexy back".

Salsa on!

I'm so addicted to Dancing with the Stars this season. I'm really impressed with how well everyone is doing. I don't want any of them to get eliminated!
I have been favouring Marissa these past few episodes. She shows that size doesn't matter when it comes to working it on the dance floor! I was so impressed with her tango last week. She's got a lot of energy and flair and stage presence. Loved it!

But among my other favourite dancers, I'd have to say...Usher, Michael Jackson and JLo!

When it comes to pop...its gotta be Michael Jackson...the King of Pop is the King of Dance...

My favourite salsa dancer? Alex Da Silva!

And my favourite ballroom dancer? Velina Sotirova!

Hey guys, I don't actually watch 'Dancing With the Stars', is it good?! I always watch 'So You Think You Can Dance' though, and I continue to be impressed with the versatility and uniqueness of the dancers. I thought Sabra was really good last season, and she's only been dancing for a few years as opposed to most of the other dancers who have been in ballet shoes since the age of two! I also loved Travis from the previous season, and I kind of think he should have won!

Aside from that one of my favourite dancers and choreographers is actually a judge on the show. I think Wade Robson is creative, innovative, musical, eclectic and very emotional in his dancing. When I see him dance, I usually can't avert my eyes Smile

This is a short video of his choreography, it's called "Wajero".

And for those of you who don't watch the show, check this one out! It's known as "the hummingbird and the flower" routine, also choreographed by Wade:

Another choreographer I love is Mia Michaels, because there's no one like her to capture emotion in dance:

And on a final note I just have to say, I don't care how crazy Michael Jackson is 'cause his dancing is off the hook!

Michael Jackson’s Moonwalk is my all time favorite. A Michael Jackson’s Moonwalk video with his Billie Jean song at YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vFVlvi-P9w

Another of my Michael Jackson favorite, In the Closet, kind of slow dance but cool to watch those little breaks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qkVxQNveJg

One of my favorite dances in the movie, Kevin Bacon in Footloose: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwBbMXYDsXw

One of my favorite on stage ballroom dance shows, Burn the floor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4XEFfThMzs

It is really hard for me to decide who my favorite dancer is. To me they are all equally good.

I like Travis and Ivan from So You Think You Can Dance.
Ivan&Allison's contemporary and Hawk and Jamie's The Hummingbird are probably my favorite routines from this show. Oh, also Benji and Heidi's mambo..Wow, that was a good season


I am also quite excited about the new SYTYCD season. The premier last week was really good. Here is the best audition for the night:

(Ninochka, that was funny...I just read it and I cannot stop laughing Laughing I think you need to pick another favorite ballroom dancer is. Here is a good cha-cha video to help you with your choice:

I can't wait to watch the second episode of SYTYCD this Thursday!
I was really impressed by that guy who was the trick artist who could pop and lock like nobody's business!
