    Mine too! I'm so excited by the fact he's not contemporary (or contemporary's twin....jazz) and that he dances something relatively unknown as far as contestants on this show goes.

    No wonder he's better at the other styles than some of the other "street-style dancing" folks. If he went to an art academy to school, he probably took at least some dance classes.

    I really like him, too. I hope he goes far.

    But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.

    Joining in on the Russell love! He's terrific! The thing that I think sets Russell apart from some of the other hip-hoppers/b-boys/krumpers, etc. is his feet. When he dances in those other styles, his feet aren't just stuck at the end of his leg doing nothing: he actually points them. He's very natural in those other styles too and makes it at least look effortless. I hope he really goes far in the competition.

    He says he has had SOME training in other dance styles but it's not extensive. I'm thinking in this art school he probably took a class or two for extra credit and that was why when he was asked what else he's trained in he responded with that initial long list. But then after going to Vegas and being with the dancers who trained extensively in those styles, he realized he had just dabbled in it and that was why his answer changed to untrained.

    I think that's where he picked up the knowledge of putting his hands and feet in the right place, it's almost effortless with him and he seems to be a sponge who can just soak up choreography.
