Well, checked the first four Rumbas, the first is a fast or social foxtrot, the second is something to smooch to , the third I could not find on ITunes, and goodness knows what the fourth is ?

it is supposeed to be Anita Baker. It is available on Amazon. and you are right, from the sample to me it is more of a bolero, hard to judge without hearing the whole song.

AWOLNATION (from the sample) sounds like a rumba, again hard to judge without haering the whole song

While you're at it, could you also collect or flag the songs with harder-to-identify beats? Often, a beat is a distinct percussion or emphasis. However, some songs seem to have a hidden or implied beat, making them harder to count than usual.

This would be useful for preparing competition when you don't know what songs are going to be played.

I have taught dancing for years. So many students just learn to dance a certain dance to a certain song.
Start listening to the beat of the song. The song will always tell you what dance to do to it.
My theory: People hear a song but we don't listen to a song. We are so use to having music all around us that we quit listening to it.
The Look of Love- Rhumba
Dream. Dream, Dream- Rhumba or a Cha Cha

The music will tell you if you listen.

I completely agree. When I teach my students I make a point of saying the music will tell you what to do. I think it is hugely important.

FYI - I have trouble getting the site to load using IE9.
Firefox also seems to have some trouble.

Chrome works on it.
