This incredible man, James McManus has travelled the world as an ex-Marine with great history behind his experiences including WWII... In his latter years he spends his time dancing his heart away to the beautiful Argentine Tango.. However there is one city he has never been... Buenos Aires.. what a coincidence to his extreme love of dancing.

This gentleman is an inspiration to our community and others around the country. He is the kind of gentleman who is unrepeatable.... With the most unique and young minded sense of humour, yet, his kindness and gentility shine through as he turns up to class without fail bringing a bottle of ginger beer for our maestro Hernán Catvin. At milongas Jim dances with every lady in the room and known to favour the stylish milonga, in which he has so much experience on the dance floor.

We love this gentleman. he is a great advocate for himself, our Waterford Tango community and the tango world!!!!

Jim is on the verge of turning 100 years old!!!!
A feat we can only wish for!! We really ask that this story becomes the tribute Jim deserves.

Waterford Tango would love to raise as much money as possible to send this inspirational man to Buenos Aires to celebrate this massive milestone in style. Any donation is appreciated with heartfelt warmth as we are a non profit group with a simple love of dancing tango. If we go over the milestone fund, the rest of the money will go towards his dream party in 2020..

Moneys raised will pay for return flights to Argentina, with 1 stop in both directions. 4 flights in total. Airport transfers and trip insurance. All inclusive accommodation, entry to nightly milongas (dances) and spending money so he can holiday in peace without cash worries. 

We would love to send Jim to Buenos Aires to celebrate his 100th birthday dancing his beloved Tango!!!!

This would be a little dream come true for this great man and thankyou for any help given to get him there.
