I totally understand the need to not have a repetitive song- I do a lot of tap improv ( I stopped classes this year when I went to university, and improv was my intro to choreography!), so I understand the need to stay fresh., I'll give you some of my fav's:
Jumpin' at the woodside- its a swing-type standard, very upbeat, quite quick in most places, but pretty short ( that can be a good thing!)
America from Westside story- I know I know MUSICALS- but its good, if you want something more latin.
Jungle swing- kind of a mix of both
Pinball Wizard- its by elton john, don't know how else you'd describe it...but it's fun to dance!
The Logical Song by Supertramp- seriously, enough said!
And finally, this one's upbeat, and its a whole lot of fun with opportunity for some crazy expression- Ms. Otis Regrets. originally, this was a jazz song, and pretty slow, but if you get the Bette Midler version, its upbeat, fast, and wonderful
Hope that helps

There is a latin version of "Puttin on the Ritz" I did several years ago. I think it was a Buster Cooper number. Hope you find something.

Pinball Wizard is from the musical Tommy which was by the band The Who, not Elton John.
