Well, Fred and Dance Boy are both right. In social dancing (which is what appears in almost all books), SQQQ, etc. is just fine. However, for competitive, the correct rhythm is 1 uh-2 uh-3 uh-4, etc. This basic 'uh' rhythm doesn't change in competitive dancing. That's straight from the #2 rhythm dancer in the US. Yes, he competes in the American style, but he knows latin as well and is fully qualified to coach it.
