There are three basic ways to step in Vals Argentino. step on beat 1, hold on beat 2, hold on beat 3, etc. step on beat 1, step on beat 2, hold on beat 3, etc. step on beat 1, hold on bat 2, step on beat 3, etc. There's a fourth way, stepping on every beat, but it's seldom used as the music is so fast. Creative use of these rhythms and musicality is the foundation, of course. But what else makes a good waltz? Circular movements? Smoothness in the step? What do you do to make your waltz stand out from your regular tango, style and step-wise? I have my own thoughts, but I'd like to hear others' opinions. Particularly followers, what they like to feel.
