Quote:The research group has done several other studies comparing various types of dance, such as fox trot and modern dance, but tango seems to provide the greatest therapeutic boost to patients with PD.

Of note, the dance class could have other effects in addition to improving movement, including providing socialization. Dr Earhart mentioned that many participants found that the dance class provided a forum for interacting with their partners at the same level, in contrast to having a traditional caregiver-patient relationship.

Dr Earhart plans to further examine the effects of tango using brain imaging in a large-scale trial.

So, it would appear all knowledge in the 40's has been lost and must now be refound.

Finnish tango music is an established variation of the Argentine tango but whose rhythm follows the Ballroom tango. It was one of the most popular music forms for decades in Finland. Brought to Europe in the 1910s by traveling musicians, Finns began to take up the form and write their own tangos in the 1930s. By the 1940s about half of the entries on the popular music charts were occupied by tangos, and the post war period saw tangos spread from a popular urban phenomenon to their enthusiastic adoption by the countryside as well. Special characteristics of Finnish tango include the change of rhythm to beguine during chorus. Also habanera rhythm is used often. The bandoneon was replaced by the accordion and drums were added. The Finnish tango is distinguished from other forms of tango by its almost exclusive performance in minor keys and themes reflecting established conventions in Finnish folklore.

Arctic Finnish winter, small pub & tango. Kaamos is the time of the winter when the sun does not rise at all.

Even though Hitler never really acted physically unusual until after he was almost blown to bits during the summer of 1944 bomb assassination attempt...

Like who the hell wouldn't display all sorts of weird symptoms after suffering through that kind of horror...
