    Totally think Karel Flores is in a league of her own. None of the other ladies come close to her incredible ease and musicality, the others look forced and uptight, technically correct but missing spirit. The rest look like taught dancers whereas Karel looks like a total natural, it fills me with joy just watching her, nothing is uptight about her dancing, it is like the music is playing her. You can see in how she styles, it looks as though the music has triggered her core to shift, and her arms react to the ripple it sends out in a beautiful relaxed flourish. She is the most enjoyable to watch by a long shot. In my opinion of course!
