In every SO TANGO  Intermediate 5 week course we focus on a particular theme. 

The theme for our next course is...  An Introduction to Vals and Milonga

In addition to Tango rhythm, Argentine tango dancers usually enjoy two other related dances: Vals (waltz) and Milonga.

Milonga is also the name given to clubs, gatherings and parties that are dedicated to dancing Argentine Tango. This double meaning of the word Milonga can be confusing unless one knows the context in which the word “Milonga” is used. 

Vals is danced to 3/4 time. Tango dancers dance the Vals in a smooth  and flowing way. The Vals, as it is danced by tango dancers is characterized by lots of turning (giros) and an absence of pauses.
