Transcript

Transcrição em português

O tango já foi descrito como uma tristeza que se pode dançar. Mas agora o ritmo está sendo usado como terapia médica.

Médicos na Argentina descobriram que o tango é útil como técnica de reabilitação para pacientes em recuperação de cirurgias cardíacas ou problemas coronários.

Segundo as estatísticas, apenas 15% dos pacientes seguem os programas tradicionais de recuperação.

Os médicos esperam que aulas grátis de tango sejam mais atraentes que uma sessão de esteira rolante.
