Tango :: Parkinson's Patients Benefit from Tango

From today's New York Times :: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/12/health/research/12exer.html?ref=research

Here's the link to the actual research article in the Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy.

I have always thought this about Argentine Tango - that it would be good/theraputic for lots of folks suffering from neuromuscular issues and musco-skeletal injuries.

The article doesn't specifically say whether it's Argetine Tango or not. I suspect it is, because we all know Ballroom Tango could not have these same theraputic benefits 8)...(grin)

The only thing I want to take issue with is the cliche'd use of the "rose in mouth" in the little graphic drawing....when will people learn that we don't dance AT with roses in our mouths...?????
