Benefits Of Dancing Argentine Tango

Argentine tango is a dance deeply rooted in the basic human need for connection and communication. The embrace that is characteristic of Argentine tango creates a strong physical and emotional connection between the dancers, creating a sense of trust and intimacy between the partners.

The benefits of dancing tango are well recognised and include:
  • It's Social! Argentine tango is danced socially across the globe. Throughout the UK there are regular social dances (milongas) where you will be welcomed and can connect with other dancers. Many dancers make new and long lasting friendships through tango.  
  • Physical Fitness: Dancing Tango can help muscle tone and flexibility and regular dancing can help cardiovascular health.​
  • Improved Posture and Body Awareness: Tango encourages good posture and body awareness, helping alignment and balance in everyday life -  great if you  spend long hours sitting at a desk.
  • Stress Reduction: Dancing tango can be a wonderful way to relieve stress and everyday tensions. The focus on the music & a partner is a wonderful way to escape from the worries of the day.
  • Cognitive Benefits: Learning and mastering the steps and patterns of the dance stimulates the brain and can improve cognitive function. And it’s fun!
  • Emotional Expression: Tango is known for its emotional intensity, allowing dancers to express a wide range of emotions through movement. This can be a wonderful means of self-expression.
  • Multisensory Experience: Tango engages multiple senses, including touch, sight, and hearing. This combination creates a wonderful rich and fulfilling experience - there's nothing like it!
