The healing power of Tango in Older Adults

With a Tango Milonga, we celebrated our partnership with Arts for the Aging, an organization whose mission is to engage older adults and care partners in health improvement and life enhancement through regular participation in the multi-disciplinary arts.

Over six weeks we cooperated with artists, seniors, care partners, intergenerational volunteers for weekly workshops specially designed to spark socialization and self-expression in vulnerable older adult populations.

Tango art form proved to be rich with "entry points," ways to create connection, joy, and healing in Arts for the Aging programs. Aware of the power of creativity and imagination, we are happy and honored that life and health of so many older adults could improve through Argentina's traditions in culture, music, and dance.
