  • An entry on your CV or résumé that will put you head and shoulders above most others in the job market

  • And best of all ... an unforgettable experience!

COURSE CONTENT:

Musically speaking, Salsa is a group of Latin rhythmic styles that contain the Clave beat; the clave beat is infectious, it makes the listener "have-to-move". Modern Salsa is directly related to the Mambo in both its music and dance forms, especially New York Salsa dance.

During your placement you will have lessons with a private Salsa teacher of Cuban origin who will tailor your program to your individual level of expertise. The lessons scheduled for your placement are as follows:

  • Five private Salsa classes per week, each lasting two hours (10 hours per week). These will usually be taken in the late morning or afternoon but there will be some flexibility, depending on your teacher’s schedule.

During your placement you will have plenty of opportunities to attend Salsa clubs where you will mix with many different individuals to improve your skills. Here everyone dances together and continually change couples - all lots of fun! “Azucar” is a Salsa club located close to the hostel.

Your dance schedule will allow plenty of time for sightseeing and absorbing the experience of being in Argentina. You can also combine your Salsa placement with a Spanish Course

If you would like to add more hours to your weekly schedule in order to give you a more intensive Salsa Dance learning experience, we can arrange that for you. There will be a small supplementary charge.

HOSTEL ACCOMMODATION:

You'll live a hostel situated in a beautifully renovated historic building in Downtown Buenos Aires, very conveniently located for exploring the city, with an endless supply of cafes, restaurants and shops nearby. It has a socialble atmosphere and you'll be made to feel welcome with a real chance to immerse yourself in Argentine culture.

You'll share a dorm room and have access to kitchen facilities. The hostel has a common area where you can relax and watch TV or DVD’s and there is also a piano and a ping pong table! It also has Wi-Fi and a couple of computers and a small roof terrace with chairs to enjoy the sunshine.

FOOD:
You’ll be given an allowance for your meals (breakfast and dinner, lunch is excluded for projects in Buenos Aires). This arrangement is to give you the flexibility to sample the great Argentinean food. Right on the door step of the hostel there are many cafes and restaurants with great priced menus just waiting for you….the choice is yours!

HOST FAMILY ACCOMMODATION:
If you would prefer a more cultural experience, we can arrange for you to stay with a local Argentinean family. Host family accommodation gives you the opportunity to become more integrated in the local community and is ideal if you want to practice your Spanish (Basic/intermediate Spanish is required to stay with a Host Family). You'll have a comfortable private room and use of the kitchen. Breakfast and dinner is provided every day and you will usually share a typical Argentinean meal with your family.

Facilities in host families do vary, but you can express your preferences regarding the type of family that you stay with (for example, a family with or without children, pets, etc). If you stay in a host family you will be given contact details of other volunteers living in Buenos Aires so that you won't miss out on any socialising!

If you choose the host family option, there is an additional supplement.

LOCATION, EXPLORING AND SIGHTSEEING:

The romance of Argentina takes one's breath away. From the northern deserts to the southern Andean Cordillera, from Iguazú Falls to the magnificent desolation of Patagonia, Argentina's geography is varied and stunning. Argentina is geared up to thrill - from nights tango-ing in the chic quarter of Buenos Aires to gaucho riding in the grasslands of the Pampas.

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.
