Right! and why not introduce very early on "change of front," which allows moving ahead in the line of dance without senselessly walking forward/back? This way you introduce early on a useful technique/concept which can be used over and over in all sorts of situations. It also introduces many other concepts with it. I stay away from any patterns, especially those which are not really usable on the dance floor.
seek, appreciate, and create beauty
   this life is not a rehearsal

> 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.
