Effects of dance on movement control in Parkinson's disease: A comparison of Argentine tango and American ballroom. Hackney, M. E. & Earhart, G. M.
doi  abstract   bibtex   
The basal ganglia may be selectively activated during rhythmic, metered movement such as tango dancing, which may improve motor control in individuals with Parkinson's disease. Other partner dances may be more suitable and preferable for those with Parkinson's disease. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of tango, waltz/foxtrot and no intervention on functional motor control in individuals with Parkinson's disease.
