Every dance has a ‘Basic’, this is Argentine Tango’s “Basic” Step. It consists of 8 steps that match a musical 8 count, which is how it got its name – The 8 Count ‘Basic’. The word ‘Basic’ refers to a standard step or pattern that is taught as Foundation, seemingly if you know this foundational element, you can dance Argentine Tango. This isn’t true by the way, Tango requires a bit more than this in order to dance it. But the 8 count is a good start!
