It is tango danced to Waltz music (more precisely, Viennese Waltz played with tango instrumentation).
Either in open or close embrace.
Danced in a smooth, continuous and flowing movement - no stoccato.
Played and danced in 3/4 beat rather than the standard 4/4, with the accent on the first beat.
Lots of circularity and rotation: incorporates the calesita (a carousel, where the leader takes the follower on axis and steps through a circle or arc around her) and molinete (windmill, in which followers dance small circles around the leader).
The vals is often called vals cruzado because in order to turn around each other, the lead and follower have to move into cross-step.

Vals - Julio Balmaceda and Corina De La Rosa

A Very Tango Store beautiful tango quotation
Yes, there is a secret to being a brilliant lead. To be the best lead, do not love your follower. Instead, listen to the tango music and love it! To make tango beautiful we must transfer! We must transfer our love of the music to the follower, and she has no choice but to be enchanted!
