The therapeutic virtues of tango have been studied for over a decade.

Tango as a therapy is used to improve natural resilience, to gain self-esteem and self-confidence and to treat stress, anxiety, depression, heart disorders, symptoms of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Tango is also used as couples therapy, to help rebuild the couple's relationship.

In a nutshell, the Argentine tango is recognized as an innovative therapy in various fields of physical and mental health.
Self-esteem and self-confidence
Tango is a dance that positively reinforces self-esteem and self-confidence.

Stress, anxiety, depression

Tango requires a strong connection with a partner, synchronisation and improvisation. This helps to focus on the present moment and mentally switch off from the feelings of stress and distress.

Couples therapy

The relationship build between two tango dancers is one of trust. The interaction of two people dancing tango reflects the ideal relationship partners should have in life. Part of learning to dance tango is learning to give gentle feedback only when asked.
