    Do you have any more videos of Francesco? I thought he did a terrific job with Jennifer Lopez, but would love to see videos of him dancing with a real dance partner if you have any. I knew when I saw the movie that he was an actual ballroom dancer but I never knew his name to look him up further until now.

    For a second there I thought "Best Bay" - where's that? :)
    I believe Igor and Irina's last name is Suvorov not Sugorov.

    *grin* Vaidas (Skimelis) and Jurga (Pupelyte) are indeed probably the best currently competing latin dancers in the Bay Area.

    Thanks for posting that video (from America's Ballroom Challenge 2007) should have seen the showdance they did at Ohio this year, it was awesome! I'm sure it will be aired during America's Ballroom Challenge in Feb 2008, but until then I can tell you it was one of the few showdances that really wowed the crowd and received an enthusiastic standing ovation on Saturday night!

    Jurga and Vaidas also placed fifth in the latin finals (which was lower than I would have placed them) and second in the latin showdance...great job by them!
