Postponed to spring 2015!
Please share with friends and family. This program is a pilot and most likely a first in Canada. The program is based on the ability of people living with dementia to connect physically through touch and music taking the role of the follower in a partnered dance. We will create a space to enjoy movement and partnership with a loved one or a person you care for. Please contact us for questions or registration. Thank you to Julia Zavalna for her expert support of Tea & Tango as well as Happily Ever Active for mentorship and financial help.
Join us on Saturday, January 25th for a free Argentine Tango wheelchair workshop at the Bethune Ballroom, VG, from 1:30 - 3:30 pm.
We are delighted to announce the introduction of Tea & Tango, a series of new programs exploring the benefits of Argentine tango for seniors and people with health challenges.
Our first program, which we are developing in collaboration with Happily Ever Active and its co-founder, Jesse Robson, is designed for ambulatory people with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, brain injury, MS and others. It will be offered on Saturdays throughout the fall of 2013 in the Bethune Ballroom of the VG Hospital. Participants may bring a partner, who may be a friend, spouse, relative; or dance with one of the volunteers we are recruiting for this program. Volunteers can be novice or experienced dancers, with or without tango experience.
We are also planning to offer an exploration of Argentine Tango for wheelchair users based on Tango al Reves - shadow position. This program will be informed by the 10 week program in fall and held In January 2014. More information to come later in fall. Please contact us if you are interested in this program.
