  1. Mmm, tango is improvised; no amount of learning this way is a substitute for live learning by moving smoothly in embrace with a partner. Walking first, then with music, then with feeling. Five or ten years later the guy may have got it.

  2. She looks like she came right from a bar where she spent the night drinking. And he … well he should straighten up, stop looking at his feet like he wasn't sure they are there and most importantly he should stop quivering.
    You don't have to be a world champion to teach the basics, but you should not look like you're trying it for the first time yourself. Unless you work for ExpertVillage of course. I pity all that try to learn from those "experts".

  3. "again he´s going to do the same"… but this time we won´t show you his feet – you´ll see the face you need to dance tango. feet don´t matter…

  4. This is ONLY the basic step for the man, in the academic "salida" movement of argentina tango. Just use this video to remember the steps after your first lesson. No lead action is explained for man. Don't expect learn more of Tango with this video!

  5. It would certainly help if they would videotape his feet… and not his face thinking about where he's stepping…

  6. These 8 simple steps, like a musical 8 notes …. then you can create a whole dance, choreography….
    I love it !
