Disabled people express themselves through tango

Demian Frontera was a gymnast in Argentina until he had an accident at the age of 14 which left him with physically disabled.

His mother founded a dance company in Buenos Aires that specialises in partnering up wheelchair users with able-bodied people so that they can dance the tango.

The Alma Group gives disabled people a way of expressing themselves through their physicality and proves how tango can be used as a means of communication between equals.

Video produced by BBC Mundo's Macarena Gagliardi.
