For me it would be flamenco.

But today I have been enjoying these clips of Georgian dancers:

Georgian State Dance Company - Svanuri - London 2005

Sukhishvili- MUST SEE!!!

Does anyone else have favorite dances, styles or groups?

I'm certainly not an expert, but I'm very fond of Kathak. Thanks to Microsoft hiring a large number of Indians, we have a fairly active community here, and there are several artists (Kathak and other styles) practicing locally. I'm a big sucker for rhythm, and there's so much going on in this work.

The Cuban Guaguanco-(A type of rumba, but the real one, not the exotic variations, BTW)

Not strictly a national dancer, but the Chinese dancer Sunrui is one of the most fascinating performers I have ever seen. He graduated from the Beijing Dance Academy.
