    I don't normally agree with a lot of what you post on SF, actually I find a lot of it quite depressing for want of a better word. But this I am in agreement with. After all, you're dancing to Afro-Cuban popular music for the most part. I get a lot of inspiration and stylistic tips as a "linear" dancer from watching Cubans dance.

    Yes, but my favorite leads and follows are like this. They dance most of the popular styles and do it musically. Diego is on my top list.

    Don't forget on3. That would add another dimension too.

    Well ... creativity ... hard to define.
    For me in dancing it means that I take the music, the technique, the partner, the communication and create a whole out of it on the fly with a low amount of standard solutions.
    It can be one sided with a strict lead-follow relation or with a cooperative decision making of different kinds.

    The interesting part is to include all the elements into a harmonic concept.

    Oh, well, and I love dance floor role playing :)

    Not disagreeing with any of above. That is how I liked to approach my dancing from very early days!

    Well, sort of! He is doing ET2 all the time! It is his style and I respect that though I would imagine a lot of people reacting to it being called Cuban!

    But going back to the openning post, I ask myself is his basic action more musical than the others? I look at the first video and I see the guy behind him in black tshirt. Obviously not a very advanced dancer (stylistically speaking) and dancing on1 but I see nothing wrong musically with his basic on1 action. Not to say something stronger! So all these "one style is for more advanced dancers" is really subjective (to say the least).

    I do not have top list:)

    I think I have now an idea what kind of leader you are:) We like something that appeals to our own style and type of personality.

    I just think, maybe I am missing something and this magic role-playing thing may help me to be a better dancer:)

    Haven't seen Diego video yet.

    I think it is not possible to tell from the posts or videos of other dancer a SFer posts on what kind of dancer they are.

    I have seen Smejmoon dance at multiple festivals. He is very chill (as in cool) lead, doesn't rush the follower, and overall a pleasant lead who dances with a lot of followers :)

    I think he meant the playfulness in dancing and reacting to partners playfulness. The back and forth of that playfulness in keeping with the music.

    Yes, I see him in my imagination the same way. :)So it is quite possible to make an inference ...

    I think many professional dancers can dance all (On1, On2, On3, On....+Casino)

    Diego has the musicality that Smej likes and connection that he creates with a follower. Yes, they do not look the same...but..
