Tango therapy

It's been described as a sorrow you can dance to. But now tango is being used as medical therapy.

Doctors hope free tango lessons will be more attractive than a session on a treadmill.

Vocabulary:

sorrow - sadness

rehabilitation - process of recovery

coronary - relating to the veins around the heart

stats - short form of ‘statistics’

treadmill - machine in a gym which people run or walk on to exercise
