Tango Therapy: The Distance Between Earth and Stars Parallax

TANGO

By Christina Johnson

Parallax is the method used for measuring the distance between the earth and stars.

Instead of parallax, we’ll use our pair of legs and practice lengthening our legs and our spines.

We’ll pay attention to a taller and suppler posture and to extending our distance from head to foot. We practice turns using our partner to be a planet as we orbit! We’ll invite our hearts to expand, to smile, and to rest.

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 ages 68 to 91 demonstrated improved balance, self-esteem, multitasking 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, or intuitive learner, all are included in this therapeutic workshop. Tango music requires listening skills and stretches your brain to coordinate rhythm and distinguish it from melody. By listening, you may move the sound of music to the heart, releasing endorphins and soothing the body.

No partner needed! 120 pesos per person or 180 pesos per couple. Wear shoes with smooth soles; sneaker soles and open back shoes are not recommended. Wear comfy workout clothes. Your professional instructors: Christina Johnson and Ezequiel A Peinado.
