Vals is the Argentine tango music (and dance form) that features three-four time. The time between two successive beats in the Vals is divided into three sub-sections of equal duration. In contrast to the Vals, in the tango and the milonga, there are two sub-divisions. This simple difference between the Vals and the two other forms (tango and milonga), creates several alternatives for syncopating the steps in the Vals, and for many dancers it makes the Vals a more challenging form to learn.
