Jive with it's fast beats and constant moving is the most challenging for us.

I agree with the answere that Samba is the hardest of all the dances. We are not talking physical here, but timing and technique. Changing from one rhythm to another, and keeping time and in phrase with the music. For starters. Eight bar phrasing. Try timing Cruzados Walks x 2 and lock. Then repeat. You have a timing of 1. 1. 1/2. 1/2 1. which then repeats 1. 1. 1/2. 1/2. 1. There we have four bars completed . Add four Cucarachas. Give each 1/2. 1/2 .1. That's another Four bars We follow this with Boto Fogos x 4 which are 3/4. 1/4. 1. That is, twelve bars bars all up so far. Who would like to finish this with another four bars of whatever to complete sixteen bars which is two eights in phrase and to start again on our left foot. This is solo practise and warm up. And again if any person thinks that Samba is easy just wait till you do Promenade and Counter Promenade Runs. 3/4. 1/2. 3/4. 3/4. 1/2. 3/4. 3/4. 1/2. 3/4. A judge who knows his stuff will imediately know if the timing is correct or not. Try to get used to the idea that if in your routine which is correctly phrased, you decide that you would like to take some part out that you don't like, say two bars, you must put two bars of something else in its place.

I agree with the rudness of Tango Moon and doubt he/she is a favorite at the dance with that attitude.

Either Samba or Rumba. Samba has the bouncing rhythem and that's pretty hard. Rumba is so slow and you sometimes need alot of good technique to make it look good.

I agree..
Argentine Tango ( not ballroom tango), is a very difficult dance to be a pro.
However..once you do it well, the fire, intensity and passion are second to none.
The difficulty in argentine tango is developing the chemistry with your partner. Its tough to do that and really develop a connection. Thats why you dance the argentine tango- to feel that connection with both the partner and the music.
Its not right to say that the arg tango is the only true latin dance, etc..
My suggestion would be to try all of them out as it depends on the individual. What connects to you may be different from me.
