Tango for People with Parkinson's
Introductory Course
with Max Kepler and Seattle Open Role Dance

Learning and practicing Argentine Tango is helpful for people with Parkinson's, and has a record of improving balance and reducing falls and freezing. Scientists don't yet know whether the therapeutic value of tango derives from its use of touch, rhythm, and intentional improvisation, or the social connections and intellectual stimulation that naturally arises during learning and practicing together. Studies do suggest that dancing tango is WAY MORE FUN than traditional exercise classes, and dancers with Parkinson's keep returning for more.

Tango for Parkinson's meets on Tuesdays from 1-2pm
at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, blue building, Room 2
6532 Phinney Ave N, Seattle 98103
Resumes June 9th, 2015

If you are interested in participating or would like to know more, email Max at, or call her at 425-522-2481.

Volunteer teaching assistants for this class will be given advance training in classroom safety and spotting techiniques. Contact Max to learn more about volunteering with this group.
