"know nothing about American Rumba. In the book . In the International Style, with International timing, if you had to use quicks and slows, the count would be Q Q S. with the first step on beat two which would be 2 3 4 1 (4 1 ) being the slow. Fred Astaire was correct."
Ineed, you know NOTHING about American Rumba.
There are THREE different rumba timings, and they do not match each other, even once the dance is under way.
1) International 2) Fred Astaire 3) Arthur Murray
Just because you can call two of them QQS does not mean that they are the same QQS - they aren't.
