Nina, and everybody else,

This has got nothing to do with Oscar Casas. He's just one Argentine 
teacher who I happened to come across on YouTube teaching the 8CB. 
I'm talking about something much bigger and not specific to any 
particular teacher. I want to know why American teachers advocate 
teaching Tango differently than Argentine teachers. And, right now, 
I'm using the 8CB as an example. Argentines teach it and nobody has 
a problem. Americans teach it and, it seems, everybody has a problem. 
I just want to know why. Personally, I think the problem is the way it's 
taught, whereas teachers on this list say the 8CB is the problem and it
shoudn't be taught.

That's what I want to talk about, but it seems like nobody else does.

Keith, HK
