Daniela: We're going to demonstrate a tango step into bachata. Five, six, seven, basic one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven and last time. We're going to break it down.

We're going to go basic one, two, three, four. We step with the left, right, left comes around, cross, and go right into your basic to the other side. One more time. Five, six, seven and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, transfer the leg to go one, two, three, four.

Edwin: Now gentlemen, make sure that you keep the timing and keep a nice posture for her to support on. We're going to go one, two, three here. I'm going to lead her in and keep my hands extra sturdy, five, six here. This is the part where you really have to sustain her, so that she doesn't stumble, and at the end you keep the timing by tapping and five, six, seven.

Let's try it from the side. Five, six, seven and one, two, three and five, six, seven tap, one, two, three and five, six, seven tap. So gentlemen, make sure that this tap is there, because the ladies need support in case something happens, and she doesn't know where the timing is, your tap is there for her.

Daniela: Let's try now with the music. So ladies, take a chance now to show your leg. Stamp that leg as much as you can and the gentleman is there to support you, so don't be afraid.

Edwin: Gentlemen, as you're getting across make sure that that's the point where you're the most supportive, and that is your tango into bachata.
