    I know this thread is between A&K and V&A, but can we have a third choice?

    I still don't think you can classify it that way, M&J are athletic "saturated" or focused or more athletic, I don't agree, as I said if anything R&Y are more athletic and less artistic (and even further with Riccardo having less command of technique: looking more raw, less polished, and less...

    Yes, that is what I was responding to in more complex way, isn't this a false dichotomy? Athleticism versus artistry as an either/or proposition...I don't agree that you can frame it like that, but I don't agree with the boxes your using nor the conclusion either...I think M&J are athletic yes...

    I didn't care for Franco in the Franco/Oxana rumba, Franco? I don't see any rumba?...and Riccardo the video from Embassy, it was poor to me, I can't think he would want anybody seeing it, it lacks some many things, but very weak body movement, smoothness, or finesse....but, then again I actually...

    one of Slavik's best rumbas on Italian Television (and believe it or not with Hanna)... youtube [dot] com/watch?v=jZ6Xh0-ZyyM

    I don't understand why dripping with emotion = good rumba, some of these rumbas are melodramatic, maudlin, over emotionalized....and the quality of the dancing is poor, so why is good to have an emotional rumba (in some cases people here seem to be reacting to the dramatic music more than...

    This is absolutely absurd reasoning….One question why do you come to a conclusion that Riccardo and Yulia changed judges minds through their dancing and went from 2 to 1, you state as fact something when you include your own supposition as fact this is called begging the question, there are...
