    I made some research with the help of Google but I couldn't find for sure who won the Club Mayan Salsa Competition in the professional division in 2000 and 2001 :( Can you help me with this, thanks ;)

    Johnny Vasquez won it in 2001, I have the video clip of the sem-finals and finals.

    Hey, thanks azzey, I was almost sure it was Johnny in 2001, because he was dancing with Carolina Cerisola and its written in her resume that she is a 2001 Mayan champion :) I have only watched their semi-final dance and they were really a class above everyone else, I would have been suprised if they haven't won either :D

    I saw a video biography of her life (last year on UK TV) when she was a struggling dancer in Buenos Aires and dreamed of moving to America. The Salsa was just a thing she did on the side for fun... :)) Recognised her immediately from the Mayan video which I already had and you can guess what happened next when she arrived in LA and started going to Salsa clubs... she met Johnny and the rest is history.

    Not dissimilar to how Oliva Dasso met Johnny when she was 17! See her bio..

    Azzey... any chance you could post a link to that vid? Can't get Mayan vids that far back any more. :'(

    Nope, couldn't see any... I'm mainly interested in just seeing Johnny compete in the mayan ;)

    It's not on any web site I know of, but I'll upload it somewhere in the next couple of weeks and post a link. Right now I'm getting ready for a big salsa event this weekend.. :)
