Benefits 

- Improve posture and confidence
- Rebuild balance and stability
- Heighten spatial awareness, proprioception and coordination
- Enhance ability to initiate and stop momentum (esp. for neurological conditions, like Parkinson's)
- Improve flexibility and range of motion in waist and torso
- Reduce stress through positive touch
- Improve neuroplasticity (the brain and body's ability to heal itself) through improvised, collaborative movement


A Unique Approach

The groundbreaking TangoStride Technique - created by Gabriela Condrea - uses music, collaboration and tango-inspired movement to help even people who can barely stand, "Dance to Walk".  Moves are designed based on each participant's abilities, with the intention of maximizing and improving their walking. Condrea's work has been featured in The Seattle Times, the Chicago Tribune – “Dancing to Walk” by Nicole Brodeur (March & November 2016) – UW Medicine News, CBS News, KING 5, and Q13 Fox News. The TangoStride Program is supported by Valley Medical CenterSeattle BrainWorks, the Brain Injury Alliance of WA, as well as neurologists, nurses, physical, occupational, and recreational therapists, brain injury community organizers, volunteers and more, and small-group classes are powered by 501c3 nonprofit Hugs that Empower.
