Certified professional training Neurotango® Practitioner

Since 2013, therapists, medical professionals, and trainers have undergone training and certification as "Neurotango® Practitioners" in accordance with the Neurotango® method (European trade mark, method reg. by German concept developer Simone Schlafhorst).

Practitioners, most of whom are already practicing as therapists, doctors, alternative practitioners, or social workers, use the techniques of tango therapy to complement their work or as an independent therapy concept (e.g., in the field of neurology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, geriatrics or psychotherapy).

With the initiation of training in 2018, starting with the inaugural seminar in Stockholm, the "Neurotango® Practitioner" program gained an international dimension. The training consists of theory and practice (the 15 NeuroTango Tools - #NTT), musicality, and tango rhythms (Vals, Tango, Milonga, Neo). In addition, there are didactics for the structure of a tango therapy lesson as well as the conception of a 10-hour tango therapy concept.


Here you will find a list of Neurotango® Practitioners from different countries .
The neuro-motor concept, according to Simone Schlafhorst-Biermann.
Contents of the training
  • Target groups of Tango Therapy
  • Cognitive, motor and psychological effects of tango therapy
  • Practical exercise tools. The #NeurotangoTools for predominantly neurological and motor application areas
  • The Neurotango® concept for neurological areas of application with preliminary exercises from kinesiology and neuro-motor training
  • Psychological Tango Tools for psychological application areas and coaching
  • Theoretical and practical basic knowledge about music in tango
  • Bar patterns with music examples for use in the classroom
  • Structure of a Tango Therapy Lesson
  • Structure of a 10-hour concept with an individually selectable target group
  • Theoretical basic knowledge about studies and backgrounds of tango therapy

Therapy lessons in the individual specialist areas (e.g., psychotherapy, physiotherapy) may only be carried out by trained therapists. Tango lessons with a preventive function or in the coaching area do not require prior therapeutic training.

Prerequisite: If possible, each participant should already have experience with teaching, working with people, groups, or possibly even therapeutic knowledge (from their field). No knowledge of tango, dance, or musicality is required. The #NeuroTangoTools are techniques that can be inserted into any form of therapy. Training seminars are offered every six months to practice and deepen the techniques, as some tools require hands-on experience (depending on the level of previous knowledge). These techniques can also be developed through self-directed learning or participation in regular tango courses.
