Youlie's lecture notes from IDTA Congress 2015
Youlie lectured at IDTA Congress 2015 on Milonga and Tango Vals.
On Tango nights (milongas) all over the world, dancers hear three types of music: Tango de Salón, Milonga and Vals. Although similar movements can be made, in order to reflect the three styles, both the selection and way that they are danced are usually different.
The two files contain three combinations that reflect the styles.
First Milonga Liso, where the dancer steps on each and every pulse of the music. This is followed in the same PDF file by Milonga Traspié. This introduces syncopation. The second PDF file contains a combination for Vals.
The music used in the lecture was the following:
Milonga Liso - Silueta Porteña by Juan D'Arenzo
Milonga Traspié - Milonga Criolla by Francisco Canaro
Tango Vals - El Triunfo De Tus Ojos (v59) by Francisco Canaro / Roberto Maida
Finally, many asked about her shoes! These were from Comme il Faut, Buenos Aires.
