    Dances like this can't be taught, they have to be experienced. Get a dancer that is experienced and just watch him/her.

    When you're confident, act serious and get the music into your soul. I'm sure the rest will follow.

    There's a recent clip of Troy and Georgette in the "Bermuda Salsa Congress" section of There are clips of Magna following and leading (and doing a damn good job of leading) in the "January in Austin" section.

    There are a couple of clips of Troy's dancing on this page, coming from a weekend event held here in Houston during early February:

    Look under "Performance" for a freestyle he did with Griselle Ponce, and under "Social Dancing" for a clip of him dancing with Rocio from here in Houston.

    Magna also appears in a couple of videoclips on that page, too.

    Wow, I love the Maria and Lee (Freestyle) clip on that page... he's dancing LA really smooth. I like his movement... Apart from the acrobatics, that's exactly what I'd love to look like dancing socially!

    Okay, this might sound a bit stupid to you, but how can I download this video and watch it, cos my connection isn't fast enough and all I get is 5 secs of video every 15-20 seconds :(

    I don't think you can download from zippyvideos directly

    but you can login to first and then use this link to download the wmv file

    It's interesting to me that you like Jareau's dancing so much, since I think of his style as being much different from yours, in terms of both movements and energy level. Is it just a very visually appealing style from your point of view, or do you also think you would personally enjoy dancing with him more than you would with most of the other top-level leaders?

    I like it too. :) The movements seem to fit the music, though the music is not the type that energizes me and gets me dancing well with it.

    well the thread is about dancing like him, only makes sense that we'd be watching clips of him :p
    yes, I do love the look, great synergy between the dancers and the music as Sagitta said. And I look forward to dancing with him when I get the chance cos I'm sure it'll be unique :)

    plus who's to say what my style is ;0 I pride myself on always trying to follow any style lead, and being versatile enough to morph into any style according to the song feel and the lead style. If there were numerous top leads around perhaps I'd have the luxury of confining myself to my "favorite" style, but there's not much challenge in that, variety is good....the main reason why I started working on following better

    This is nothing too crazy, you should be able to dance like this with practice. It's a standard NY style, lots of cbl turns, and whips makes it look flowy. He has a couple signature moves, he likes that R to L Hand cbl Left turn.
