Gabriela Condrea is the creator of the groundbreaking TangoStride Method, a tango-inspired neuroplasticity mobility technique that helps people "Dance to Walk". Her work has been featured in The Seattle Times, the Chicago Tribune and Q13 Fox – “Dancing to Walk” by Nicole Brodeur (March & November 2016) – UW Medicine News. She offers group classes for stroke and traumatic brain injury survivors at Valley Medical Center and Seattle BrainWorks, as well as one-on-one sessions, using music, movement and hugs to help people improve their walking ability. The TangoStride Program is also supported by the Brain Injury Alliance of WA, as well as neurologists, nurses, physical, occupational, and recreational therapists, brain injury activists and organizers, volunteers and more, and classes are now powered by 501c3 nonprofit Hugs that Empower. Condrea holds a Master’s in Education and has traveled extensively presenting her book, When 1+1=1: That “Impossible” Connection (2011) and work on tango and connection.
