In the video link you cite, I see Oscar Casas stepping
backward into the line of dance - into the woman's
ankle behind him in a real social dance setting. 
Please explain why you think this is a good thing for
beginners to know.

And do you really believe than any Argentine is a
better dancer than any other nationality?  And do you
believe than any Argentine is a better tango teacher
than any non-Argentine tango teacher?   If so, why are
you teaching?
