Greece promotes tango for healthy living
Saturday 11 February 2012
On 11 February, Alzheimer Hellas organised a tango evening in Thessaloniki. The event showcased the history of tango through the cinema and also highlighted the link between dance and its contribution to health: dancing is known to provide significant health benefits for the body and mind, including protection against dementia.
The event aimed to encourage people with Alzheimer’s disease, their carers and friends to have fun and take up activities that could help them to reduce the risk of developing dementia. The highlight of the evening was a live performance by two couples, of which both ladies are Alzheimer Hellas employees.
