I think that's like saying the best food in the World is Chocolate.
Sure, it's good, but people have different tastes.
Personally, I think Johnny Vasquez is really good, but I think other innovative dancers have come along that possess their own strengths.

yes, just like in Soccer... all the players who go to the World Cup possess their own strengths, but in that 1986 world-cup... Maradonna was THE BEST of them all! --- Once again, Johnny Vazquez is the best dancer in the world!

Word. 8)

Give me a frickin' break... that's like saying there's only one "correct" style of salsa!

So?

Is he a great dancer? Sure.

Might he be considered the best in a certain style? Sure.

Do I wish I had that level of ability? Sure.

Saying he is THE best dancer, however, is still like saying that kiwis are the best fruit... :roll: :roll: :roll:

SD... did you see Maradonna take that ball from behind the middle of the field all the way down, across like 10 players, and scoring that amazing goal?

remember that hip movement? those great passes? it's like he had eyes all over his body...

man, he was THE BEST! Yet... I also remember Zico from France, he was great too. And then there was Baggio from Italy, even Madonna said she wanted to hump him... so big props to him too. But Maradonna, HE WAS THE BEST!!!

A) not everyone has to agree
B) not at every element of the game
C) soccer/football is a lot more standardized than salsa (thanks G-d!)

So?

Don't worry africana, there is hope... because a hint of destruction here (although typically with a warning or two first) and the DF staff is more then willing to delete and ban users. The DF is about community and anyone who long ignores that is not welcome.

Matrix -- what, in your opinion, makes Johnny Vazquez the best salsa dancer in the world? Who to you are the second best, third, fourth...? What qualities do you like seeing in salsa dancers?

Yes I've seen his performances and his dancing at parties (and heard his singing too :lol:), and yes he's amazing, but is he THE best, period? I don't know or have seen enough to decide on that one...

Maradona may have been the best player in the 1986 World Cup, but that doesn't necessarily mean he is/was THE best football player in the world, ever, period (and too many people who remember him in 1986 also remember "the hand of god" unfortunately :roll: ).

No . . I disagree. I've seen you both dance!

Don't let yourself get sucked in, MM. Topics like these are often a conversational trap. You put one toe in, and before you know it, you're being pulled under the quicksand, from what I've seen. :?

Thanks for saying that, SD. I'm glad I wasn't the only one thinking it. 8) :)
