REVIEWS

Suzanna Long: "I chose the Tango placement as something which would be a bit different, give me an opportunity to do something creative and give me an insight into the local culture. It certainly met all these aims, and most of all was a lot of fun. I enjoy dancing as a past time, but I think anyone could have a go at this. The combination of the individual private lessons as well as one group lesson per week also worked well. I learnt things in different ways at the different classes, and it was good to meet up with local Argentineans at the group class.

All in all, I fully recommend the tango placement as very rewarding, creative and great fun."

Sarah Payne-Baarder: "My placement in Buenos Aires was absolutely the best I could have imagined. I chose to attend Salsa, Tango and Spanish classes for two weeks ... If I did it again I would do it exactly the same way except for twice as long!! A fantastic experience overall and one I will never forget!"

MORE INFORMATION

Cosmopolitan Buenos Aires: Buenos Aires is one of the most exciting cities in Latin America. Tango was born here, restaurants serve all manner of world cuisines, bars play the latest music, cafés spill on to the streets and nightclubs allow dancing throughout the night. This fabulous city is renowned for its sophistication and has a surprisingly European feel about it. BA is reminiscent of Paris and its tree-lined avenues and frequent plazas have a beguiling, faded elegance.

Downtown, the Plaza de Mayo is the traditional focus of activity. Nearby Avenida 9 de Julio is popularly known as the world's widest thoroughfare and, with its nine lanes of traffic, is truly a pedestrian's nightmare! Avenida Santa Fe is the most fashionable shopping area.
