Special Vals Seminar by Mina and Giraldo of Corrientes on the 25th of March and 1st of April 2020, from 8pm followed by practica until 11pm.

“Albeit Tango Vals was already popular in the 1910s amongst a few musicians and dancing aficionados, the true love story between tango composers /musicians and Tango Vals was born when Roberto Firpo and his Orquesta Típica recorded the immediate hit Desde el Alma, written around 1911 by the then very young Uruguayan composer Rosita Melo…Dancing to Tango Vals is about softness, playfulness and about translating the lyrics into our movements; in sync with the rhythmic melody of the Vals (3×4). During this special Vals seminar at Letchworth Tango Academy, we will be looking at some of the possibilities of how we play with the accents and syncopations of the music, whilst making dancing to Tango Vals unique.”
