In the words of dancers....

The Power
of Tango

“I feel like it gets something out of me that doesn’t come out in any other way.”

Listen to the words of the dancers in this short film to hear how the tango embrace can transform people’s lives through connection, creativity, and community.

To give people the magic of tango, Mauro Marcone established Two To Tango in Houston, in 2014, and his goal is to educate the community about tango, create opportunities for dancing Argentine tango, and to promote Argentinian culture. The Houston Heights studio hosts group and private lessons, milongas (social events), the Houston Tango Festival, and community performances.

Dancing connects your body and soul

Tango is primarily a walking dance, integrated with turns and pauses. As a dancers’ tango vocabulary increases and they begin creating more complex movements, so does their mobility, balance and core strength. An upright relaxed posture creates space within and awakens body awareness.

Dancing tango well requires mindful control of the body which is accomplished by activating and releasing muscles to achieve a desired movement. Students find that they gain greater body control, not only when dancing tango but in day to day life due to increased muscle tone and strength as well postural alignment, balance and flexibility.

Cognition and powering up the brain

Dancing tango provides an avenue for learning new skills. One of the reasons that tango is so stimulating for the brain is that it requires split-second, rapid fire decision making. This results in several brain functions being activated at the one time, thus increasing neural connectivity. Furthermore, tango is an improvised dance based on a technique that is precise and challenging. Added to this are further challenges of partnering another person, executing movements to a broad range of tango music (tango/vals/milonga) and navigating the dance floor. Switch on the brain and power up new neural pathways, dance tango!
