Study on tango travelers

You travel for tango or you try to tango when you travel, you like meeting new tangueros and experiencing new milongas... Please be part of the study I am currently leading, and share with me the reasons and hopes of such travels. Please download the questionnaire here: Tango_Traveler and sent it back to me by email or snail-mail. The results will first be used as academic paper materials, and might lead to a documentary on our international community. Thank you for your help! Gwen
