On Tuesday evenings, from 7.30 to 8.30 pm, we meet in Bordet to dance the Argentinean tango and turn the waiting room into a dance floor. Having gone through the appalling experience of cancer, when life wins but one is still recovering and fragile, why not indulge oneself in dancing the tango with one’s partner or a friend to enjoy some pleasurable and good time?
My project reflects my own experience and concerns more specifically breast cancer.
The breast is the symbol of feminine identity and when facing a mastectomy and/ or reconstruction, the shock is devastating. The “abrazo”, embrace, implies going towards the other with generosity.
In the breast to breast contact, the acknowledgement and respect by the partner make the woman discover the feeling of self-acceptance.
She can then restore her self-image as a pleasant and attractive woman and express her femininity naturally and effortlessly. The tango is a wonderful dance of great complicity.
Tango melodies are a discovery in themselves.
It is preferable to come with one’s partner/a dance partner. Supervision by a member of the Psycho-oncology Unit of Bordet Institute.
