The most exciting dance experience ever!!

10/10

I had such a wonderful experience on this gap year program.I really wanted to know another country's dance community but I didn't have any connection. And one day I found this program.
Since I cannot speak fluent Spanish so I was a little bit worried to go to Argentina but I had a great support from the program and ended up with the most amazing trip ever in my life. It was a pleasurable moment to communicate through dance even though we cannot communicate verbally, and we were able to share a love of dance each other. If you already know what you love and if it's 'dance', this is the program you should choose. The memory of communicating and expressing yourself through dance (universal language) will be the treasure of your life!

Argentina Is A Beauty

9/10

It was a great time meeting new people who love dance. The folklore dancing especially the partnering Samba is so beautiful with scarves. Buenos Aires is cool very spread out and Cordoba is cool because you can walk around the city center. The dance and circus classes have really cool spaces. Classes have different levels and there are always live shows around the city. Food is really good especially if you like meat and pasta. The nature side is so beautiful and tranquil. It was a good time and I met some cool people.

How can this program be improved?

I would have liked to have more free time and maybe having more options of stay. I was a home stay but would have liked to be in a place with a group of others traveling.
