Happiness as Anarchy #160: Vals, Waltz, 3/4 time

One, two three, one two, three … it’s such a beautiful feel, the waltz or vals or valse, depending on which language you prefer. The tango vals is particularly beautiful – it has all the wonderful motion of the three beats, with soaring melodies over the top. Similarly, the dance has quite quick footwork, but with a largesse in its lines.
