On October 20th, participants in Orange County viewed a film screening of a documentary called, “Though the Heart of the Tango” at the Irvine Civic Center Auditorium as part of the Silent River Film Festival. This heart-warming documentary is about 8 individuals including 3 with Autism and 1 with Down’s Syndrome learning to bond through tango dancing. The film includes renowned tango dance instructors Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo who have both been featured on television’s “So You Think You Can Dance.”

We here at Bella Ballroom Dance Studio are very interested in the non-verbal communication that occurs through partner dancing and how this can be beneficial to all individuals, especially those with special needs and their families. There are several projects that we are becoming involved with on the subject and will be excited to share more about this down the road.
