Welcome to the international website of Tango Therapy!

Neurotango® is a Tango Therapy concept based onthe latest studies with respect to brain functionality (neuro-motoric processes), geriatric science, learning processes research, and kinesiology.

Tango Therapy can be applied in cases of pre-existing physiological as well as psychological conditions. Courses in Tango Therapy are also offered in preventative as well as curative situations. 

Following the links, you will find examples of physiological and neurological disorders as well as psychological problems which can all be treated.

The techniques of body language and their interpretation become increasingly relevant for science and the management of economics ('the body does not lie'). Decisive abilities of character and capacities like social behaviour, team spirit, leadership qualities and dealing with new challenges can be determined by Tango Therapy concepts unequivocally.

We have an international network of trainers and therapists who focus on diverse areas. We therefore offer specialist lectures and one-day seminars, but also training to become trainers of Tango Therapy.

Furthermore we offer an annual 2-weeks' trip within our inclusion project. Everybody regardless of pre-existing conditions, age, previous knowledge, or relationship status can take part in several courses,  excursions and dances.
