The healing potential of tango for people living with Parkinson’s: Upcoming events

Cambridge, UK – 14 June 2018 – Cresset, innovative provider of outstanding software for molecular discovery, is pleased to announce its support for ‘Parkinson’s and the Tango Effect’, a book written by Kate Swindlehurst, a tango dancer living with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s. It is being crowd-funded through the publisher Unbound.

‘Parkinson’s and the Tango Effect’ began with a tango lesson and grew into an exploration of the healing potential of tango. The book builds on research on the impact of dance on Parkinson’s symptoms and takes it a stage further, with a behind-the-scenes record of private lessons and contributions from tango teachers. It documents the emotional and social benefits of the dance and its impact on the quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s.

Kate will be talking about the book and her experiences in three upcoming events:
