Hello, this is Nene Ortega with neneortegabaile. Today, we're going to teach you the basic step for tango. I have my partner Phil Palma and we are at the Star Ballroom in Pompano Beach, Florida. This is going to be the basic step for Argentine Tango. It has eight steps and we're going to break it down for you. First, we're going to show you the whole sequence. Ladies start to the front; men start with the right leg to the back as we go one, side two, walk three, walk four; ladies cross the left on top of the right, then six, seven, eight. I'm going to do this again. One, two, three. In the three, it's outside partner and this is the moment when we do the counter body. If he has his shoulder straight, he's going to go somewhere else. In this moment, that's when my partner shows me his shoulders and I follow him three, four. I cross, he's going to have his feet together and then, we're going to go six, seven, eight. So, let's dance it. I'm going to show in the real time. For you, Nene Ortega, basic steps for Argentine Tango.
