Tango Therapy: Brain and Body Workout

By Christina Johnson

This workshop is comprised of exercises and musical movements to use for rejuvenating and invigorating the body and mind. Contrary to many forms of exercise that exacerbate joint pain, tire the back, and are repetitive and tedious, Argentine tango is always exciting and creative. We can begin tango as a therapeutic exercise and continue to enjoy it as a dance with more refinement and elegance over the years.

Few dances involve a heart to heart embrace. Human beings need an equivalent of eight hugs a day to enhance the immune system and remain in a satisfactory mental state. Because of the close embrace of tango, a one hour class would be the equivalent of at least twenty hugs. The biological system has an opportunity to leap into super healing mode through tango!

A study done by the Society of Neuroscience in Washington showed that dancing tango boosts brain power that can offset negative symptoms of getting older. Seniors aged 68 to 91 demonstrated improved balance, self-esteem, multi-tasking ability, and motor coordination. Seniors who tangoed were compared with others who walked for exercise, and the tangueros showed more improvement.

With our tango therapy class, we present exercises for people who may be compromised through surgery, accident, or diseases affecting motor skills, the brain, and muscle memory. If you are able to walk, then you can enjoy the therapeutic value of these unique classes. No matter if you are a kinesthetic, visual, auditory, kinesthetic, or intuitive learner. All are included in the study of tango. Tangos take listening skills and stretch your brain to coordinate rhythm and distinguish it from melody. You will start listening, and moving music to the heart releasing endorphins and soothing the body.

No partner needed! Two hundred pesos for dedicated students (those participants who fairly regularly attend Tango Therapy) or 300 pesos per person or 500 pesos per couple.
