    The Finalists:
    Luca Baricchi & Loraine Baricchi
    Augusto Schiavo & Caterina Arzenton
    Massimo Giorgianni & Alessia Manfredini

    My guess is year 2000. My logic is - Augusto/Caterina won the World at end of 2000,and since then,Barrichis & Augusto/Caterina haven't gone head to head against each other. Japan or Asian Open would be in summer timeframe. So I think it's mid year 2000.

    Wow that was cool to see. Thank you for posting! Loraine was certainly bucking the hair trends there ;-)

    Best of ALL time :?: -- would have to dis - agree .

    It has moved into an era, where it is becoming a caricature of its self.

    Majority, are starting to look as tho they are dancing F/Trot :confused:-- and please dont tell me its a " trend ".
    Trends, should reflect improvement-- not departure .

    Have seen them all == from Scrivener ,( the master ) thru Irvines, Gleave et al.
    The " air " of mystery and non predictability, has all but disappeared.

    There is no wonder, people are returning to Tango Argentino , which has more character in its basics, than the current interpretations, we see on a daily basis .

    I like all the couples in this video, but what I didn't like:
    - Timothy Howsen's triple head flick. I thought he was having some sort of an attack
    - Too much posing and not enough dancing overall
    - Check me on this one, but around 1:04 remaining I believe Luca steps out with a toe lead. If it is a heal lead, well, you tell me.

    I was going to take the coward's stand on this one, TT. I was going to post almost verbatim your and DM's comments, and chickened out.
