Tango night on the Frigate “Ara Libertad”

September 13, 2007

Last Sunday a tango night was organized on the Argentine frigate “Ara Libertad” in Antwerp by Tango aan de stroom.

Dancing on the wooden deck of this large sailing ship was quite a special and romantic experience. Although the deck was slightly curved and sloping I didn’t have too much trouble dancing and keeping balance. Any inconvenience was more than made up by the whole atmosphere of being on a ship and the background of the river.
The nice thing was that even some of the Argentine sailors were dancing in their uniforms!
