Sundance Saloon led the country-western instruction and dancing on the recent all-gay RSVP cruises to the Carribean aboard Holland America's beautiful Koningsdam, and to Alaska on the Eurodam. Check out this fun video of our beginner dance lessons and dancing. Interested? We'll return to the Koningsdam on another RSVP Caribbean cruise February 11–18, 2018, where we again expect to have two mornings with CW dance lessons and two evenings of open dancing, among the myriad amazing activities and entertainment RSVP is known for.
