Known for its elegance in movement and rich music, the Argentine Tango is nothing short of the words beautiful and graceful. Its technical skill garners more than just the stare of any onlooker as it has tremendous benefits that go beyond the dance floor.
According to various studies, Tango has proven to be one of the best ways to relieve physical and mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. In general, dance is a foolproof way to improve cardiovascular health while gaining satisfaction from doing something that may be hard. The endorphins released from doing these types of activities are what make people happy (seriously).
But the Argentine Tango, as studies have shown, is a great help to people, especially those who may suffer from Parkinson's Disease or Alzheimer's.
The technical movement helps improve balance and mobility, especially for those who may suffer from tremors of motor dysfunctions of the like.It makes sense that some call this the "yoga" of dance.Tango's structure and technical requirements allow dancers to gain core muscles and leg strength, which can help those who may have lower back pain.
While these movements may seem passive, it requires active muscle movement that give phenomenal results.
So whether it's for sport, fun, or health benefits, tango has something for everyone.
