Tango Therapy for June

By Christina Johnson

  • A workout for the brain to lift mood, improve memory, and inspire neurons.
  • Exercise for the body to tone muscles, strengthen core, and improve flexibility and coordination.
  • A wonderful healthful experience for non-dancers and dancers who desire improved balance, proprioception, and exercise that you can do at the low to medium level you prefer.

Teachers: Christina Johnson and Ezequiel A. Peinado, accomplished professional tango instructors.

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 become 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, DC, 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 visual, auditory, kinesthetic, or intuitive learner, all are included in the study of tango. Tango takes listening skills and stretches your brain to coordinate rhythm and distinguish it from melody. You will start listening and moving to music as the heart releases endorphins and soothes the body.

No partner needed! Wear comfortable clothes and soft leather soled shoes or dance shoes if you have them.
