When I was 17-18 I danced salsa and performed it. I jacked my knee up pretty bad and dancing went on the back burner to school and life but I still adored the way it made me feel. Talking to my friend she convinced me to start taking dance classes again. I tried tango 5 years ago and work got in the way. I am back in tango classes and it makes me feel amazing. Now I will post 2 links one is kizomba and one is samba. Which should I learn next!? I want opinions.

Kizomba: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xRw62Ouq-0A

Samba: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=s1onTuWZ0OA

Kizomba is closer to tango and samba is closer to salsa both which I know how to do...so opinions please

If you aren't comfortable grinding on your partner then definitely Samba.

Personally, I like the samba but I really haven't been exposed to too much Kizomba. I like the samba beat and trying to move to the speed and timing of it. I'm not sure where Kizomba is big but with the Samba you can go to Brazil and party in Carnival.

ETA

I looked up some other Kizomba videos and just decided I don't like the dance from your link, but I did like these two links

as I could see many more dance elements on display.

Samba first!!! I love that its fast, sexy and your abs look amazing after a couple of weeks ... I liked the kizomba, but you definitely have to feel comfortable with the partner. t/j I personally have gotten into dancehall reggae in the last couple of weeks. My legs are recovering.

I'm bumping because I want more opinions lol. I haven't been able to get the time to do either because I'm already in tango classes plus regular school so I have another month to make this decision.

Opinions pretty please!!
And thank you to those who have given their opinions already, I am leaning towards Samba atm because Kizomba is very intimate but still want opinions either way. KK thanks

I like what Blu says in Rio....

Blu: You want honesty? Fine. Fine, I can be honest. I don't belong here. In fact, I never wanted to come here in the first place. And...and...and you know what? I hate Samba!
[Rafael, Nico and Pedro gasp with shock and Nico bursts into tears]
Pedro: Hey! That's a little too far!
[to Pedro]
Nico: Make the mean bird take it back!
Blu: Yeah! I said it! Every song sounds exactly the same.
[he mimics the samba music and dance]
Blu: Tico-taco, ya-ya-ya! Tico-taco, ya-ya-ya! Urrgh! I'm tico-taco outta here.

ETA: Oops... hit enter too fast. I meant to say... I haven't stopped humming the tunes since I saw that movie... I think Samba is cool.

I think Samba first then kizomba.. you'll know the instructor better before you start grinding away.

Samba it is. I do love dancing, it clears my mind. I finally mastered ochos in tango today. Well I mastered front ochos I still mess up on back ochos but I got cleared for the next class level so yay.
