For Parkinson's disease and MS sufferers: gentle dance steps to improve balance and confidence.
Medical Research has shown that Tango is good for problems with balance. The Argentinian dance is exceptionally good for equilibrium, primarily because tango is essentially a walking dance in partnership. When one stands in the practise hold with a partner, four feet are sustaining stability rather than two – this is like using another person as a support frame. By developing crossover coordination over time, tango develops our ability to maintain “the most stable centre of gravity” and to walk with confidence!
Learning Tango is not only good for your balance, it's also a lot of fun! Please join us at St Luke's Community Centre for our weekly lessons. To find out more about how Tango can help with balance or to book a class, please visit our website or contact Fay Laflin on 07538103190, [email protected]
