'Dance hosts' needed to keep cruising ladies entertained

Top cruise lines are offering free passage to gentlemen who know how to get down.

The reason for the extraordinary offer is the explosion in popularity of ballroom dancing after a show called ‘Dancing with the Stars’ aired on US TV.

To become a ‘dance host’ you must be single, physically fit, between 40 and 69, have the gift of the gab and an outgoing personality.

Your repertoire of dances must also include the Foxtrot, Rumba, Waltz and Cha Cha.

Behind the ‘dance host’ scheme is Florida-based company called Sixth Star Entertainment.

“Our current openings include cruises to Europe, Alaska, Tahiti, the Caribbean and beyond,” said Sixth Star President Doug Jones. “Gents who love dancing can literally see the world.”
