    Tango at Sea

     Dear Tango at Sea Previous Dancers - 2012

    Tango at Sea finished our 19th cruise March 13, 2016.
    All necessary data for our next sailing from Savona, Italy on September 10-17, 2016; are shown on our web page TangoatSea.com; please take a look and let me know if you will be booking this sailing.
    Also, please note, that we have changed our format.
    We are just cruising to various ports of call and then dance the night away.  This makes for a very relaxing cruise and tango vacation.  No more workshops!!  There are so many talented dancers and several suggested we change our format; hope you like this change.

    We have on board a very talented DJ who plays traditional Argentine Tango throughout Europe.  Francesco “El Actor” from Switzerland was on board with our recent tour.
    Our dancers on board expressed how much they enjoyed the relaxing feeling of meeting great dancers from around the world and to dance the night away to great music.
    Please feel free to give me your thoughts.

    So, if you are interested, we need to hear from you by June 1, 2016, if at all possible.  There is not much lead time to get the word out.  Anything you can do in your neck of the woods to help spread the word will be so appreciated here.
