Trip overview

The tango is one of the most beautiful and complex dances in the world. Combining understated passion with fluidity and rigidity, this unique style of dancing is one famed throughout the world. Its origins lie in the streets of Buenos Aires and it is here we are offering you the opportunity to visit, to learn this craft from the experts. 

Join students from around the world in the cultural heart of Argentina, to focus on all the elements that will make you a tango dancer. This is an opportunity, not only to learn this intricate and beautiful dance, but to build your self-confidence and to explore one of the most charming cities in the world. This is a chance to truly test yourself, to put yourself through the paces and discover if you have the mental and physical prowess to master one of the world's most respected dances. 

Buenos Aires is effortlessly charming. As soon as you arrive in the city, you feel like you are home. The city is one of the safest in South America and by living and studying here for two weeks you will get to know its streets, its enticing culture and its incredibly friendly locals. Step onto the streets every morning to the ensnaring scent of pastries and coffee. Spend your evening's feasting on delicious food, washed down with glasses of rich, robust Malbec and hit the milongas (tango clubs) to refine your skills and revel in the sight of true masters at work. 

Immerse yourself in a new culture, make lifelong friends and, best of all, break away from your usual routine back home as you embark on an adventure to study the heart and soul of Argentina through the medium of dance. This is more than just visiting Argentina, this is living it.

Trip details

Your tango program is a full immersion in the world of dance. A once in a lifetime opportunity to train with the best instructors in the world at a dance school in the birthplace of the tango. Students of all levels come from all over the world to participate in the intensive lessons to help master the complex steps of this intricate dance of passion. If dance is part of your future, or if you just want to push yourself, to gain confidence in learning this intricate and glorious dance, then this is one of the finest courses in the world for it. The skills you learn here have been passed down from generation to generation, in a dance that encapsulates the drama and passion of the country. 

This course is taught with the passion and precision you would expect from the dance itself. The instructors are not just world-class dancers and exceptional teachers, but genuinely lovely human beings who will give recommendations and help you really use your time in this beautiful city. Every day you will labour over the tiniest details, you will sweat as you repeat routine after routine and leave at night with Argentina pumping through your veins, ready to explore the delights of Buenos Aires after dark. 

Arrive in Buenos Aires with the reassurance that you will be many steps ahead of every other traveller in search of the same experience. It is tough to find accommodation as a traveller in Buenos Aires, so with everything taken care of before you arrive, you can get stuck into your studies and absorb the beauty and history of the city. You’ll be staying right in the greatest areas of the city, either Palermo, Belgrano, Barrio Norte or Recoleta, each one bursting with character and packed with bars, restaurants and cultural experiences waiting to be discovered.  

If you want to explore Argentina or even South America further, then you couldn’t be in a better spot. A short ferry ride and you are in the laid back loveliness of Uruguay, a country that should never be overlooked. You are close to Iguazu Falls, a must-see natural wonder and you are flights or long bus journeys away from the south coast of Brazil, a whole adventure in itself.  


What extra costs will I have? 

Flights, travel insurance, souvenirs, vaccinations & spending money.

Trip itinerary


You will be collected from the airport and transferred to your accommodation for the week. If you choose to, arrive a few days early to acclimatise and explore Buenos Aires before your classes start in earnest.


Your classes do not officially start until the afternoon each day, however many people choose to participate in Spanish lessons in the mornings (for an additional cost). This creates a much more authentic experience and helps you feel more part of the city. To leave each evening, filled with tango knowledge, believing you are a true porteño (people of the port, the nickname for Buenos Aires residents), and then take ages asking for a ticket for the subway, can bring you right down with a crash.  Each day, your intensive Tango lessons take place between 3-8 pm. During this time you will participate in one-on-one lessons to teach you your exact role, whether leading or not, adjusting your frame, footwork and musicality, before you join in the later group lessons. In the group training, you will get a chance to work on creating the magic of the tango with a partner of the same skill level as yourself under the watchful eye of your expert instructor.  Then from 5-10 pm, our partners in Buenos Aires have arranged a whole series of cultural activities and city tours to get you to know the city much better and feel like you are becoming a true porteño. If your lessons and your cultural activities conflict, no problem, things can be rearranged to make sure you get the most out of this incredible cultural immersion.

Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more!

Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together!

But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join.

And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

What happens if COVID affects my trip?

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected with our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.

If you’re affected by Covid-19 while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We recommend travellers purchase Global Travel Cover travel insurance that provides Covid-19 medical protection too.

Do I need to be vaccinated to book?

As border restrictions for countries begin to ease, being fully vaccinated will maximise the number of locations you can visit. So while you are not legally required to be vaccinated, and it’s also not a requirement to travel with us, it will limit some of the countries that you can visit and may make it harder to travel through over the next 12-18 months. We highly recommend our travellers look at the current travel restrictions of their destination, speak with a medical professional or get in touch with our team for travel advice.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 84* days before departure without incurring any charges when you rebook it for any time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.

In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 2 years!

*Some select trips excluded, including Teach (Spain, Italy & Czech Republic) and USA (Summer Camp, Working Holiday and Hotel Professional), and others as listed in Booking Conditions.
