Who are yours?  Not just the top of the field (but I don't mean to exclude) Who do you like to watch the most?  Don't forget to also mention the style (latin, new wave, smooth etc).  You can also provide a link to either their personal web site or another web location where we can appreciate them... 

Victor Fung and Anna Mirkhead are the first ones to come to my mind - perahps the most graceful in the world they have not yet reached #1..

Is Arunas Bizokas professional or amature? He's my favourite!

Arunas is now a professional and I really enjoy watching him dance, but I have to go with Elise and Victor and Anna.

The Gleave's

Yes, I know.... I know, they are retired but I loved their dancing. They mesmerized me like no other couple ever has since.

Yes, I love Victor Fung and Anna Mirkhead but am particularily partial to Greg Fidurski and Gabriela Jileva!

I don't think I've seen them compete - I will have to look out.

Where are they based?

There is very little on youtube and those clips don’t really do them justice.

Rhythm:  Okay, I'm a bit biased, but since he's my former pro--Jeremy Gatlin and Anna Harwood.  But my overall favorite in the style--Felipe and Carolina Telona, by a landslide.

Smooth: Again, a bit biased based on my studio.  Retired champions--David Hamilton and Olga Foroponova, and of course Ben and Shalene Ermis.  Currently on the circuit--Mayo Alanen and Lisa Vogel.

Standard: Blaz Pocajt and Inna Berlizyeva.  And I'll third Victor and Anna.

Latin: Riccardo and Yulia.  That woman is my hero.
