Tango, one of the most fun forms of exercise

Tango dancing is one of the most fun forms of exercise available! Its been one of the main topics of major medical news stations and channels, that social dancing has become a great method to replace the needed twenty minutes of brisk walking that doctors have been recommending for years. Dancing the Tango can do many things to improve your overall health. For one thing, dancing the Tango, or any style of dance for that matter, helps improve your respiratory functions by helping the blood flow across your entire body. The rigid stance demands promote excellent posture, as dance instructors will grill it into you until it is part of your second nature. The dance itself is great for burning calories as well, the fast paced movements tend to make it one of the most valuable dances in terms of losing weight! Not all Dances were created equal, as you can tell by examining the amount of calories burnt per hour:

* Ballroom/Tango: 180-480 * Belly dancing: 180-300 * Jive/swing dance: 250-400 * Line dancing: up to 300 * Salsa: 400

Tango has started to be used as a Therapy for people with certain levels of dementia, and diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. In these methods, prevention tends to be the best method, starting before the symptoms can occur. It also offers the benefits that come with an equal amount of physical exercise, such as lower blood pressure, and cardiac diseases. It is often seen as better then most of these types of exercises, since it increases balance and and requires you to use your entire body. Its not uncommon for people to find muscles in there feet they didn't know existed before. It works by dancing steps that help your balance, equilibrium, memory, posture; your movement from your own axis, levity, synchronization, syntonisation , psycho tonic dialogue, feeling through your physicality. Tango Dancing, at its base, is a social activity. Studies have shown that strong social ties and socializing with friends contribute to high self-esteem and a positive outlook. Most major cities have a lot of activities involving dance occurring- I live in Portland Oregon and there is a Portland Tango event every single night. A simple google search will find you activities occurring in your own city. Tango being a social dance, it is seen as a way for people dealing with divorce and depression to connect to the outside world- helping them, get out of the rut there life was currently in.
