Q: How many steps are there in Tango?
Post date: Dec 5, 2014 2:00:04 AM
A common reply is 3 - forward, side, back
...or 6 - forward, side, back with both left and right legs
However, I love this answer (which gets to the essence of the improvisational nature of tango) by Gery Rudolph from the Seattle-based tango school Got 2 Tango:
A: "There is really only one step in tango — the next one — if you decide to take it...
(you might also need or want to hang out in the same place for awhile)."
