" The Basic 8 Count should be taught with an immediate warning that students quickly free themselves from its structure. It should never be taught as THE basic for Tango dancing.

Why bother teaching a bad move if your going to have the student stop using it? You can get the same effect by a side step holding a beat and continuing. It's hard enough on the new student just trying to learn a move that he/she willwant to keep. To me the basic 8 makes no sense.
	Just my 2 cents worth
