Tango on the SS United States

Clip | 4m 3s

Luisa Meshekoff and Sidney Grant dance an improvised tango to the music of the Oscuro Quintet on the decaying ballroom floor of the SS United States. Launched in 1952, this ship transported dignitaries, celebrities, and people from all over the world during her service career, which ended when she was decommissioned in 1969.
