About

Want to spend your summer learning and growing as you immerse yourself in the history and culture of a spectacular foreign city? Then BridgeAbroad’s Latin American Cultures & Social Movements program is for you!

You’ll spend five weeks living and studying in Buenos Aires, Argentina—one of the most unique and energetic cities on the planet. By using the city as your classroom, you’ll build language skills, deepen your knowledge of Latin American culture and history, and expand your horizons—all while earning college credit!

Your learning will be facilitated by the city you’ll call home for the summer. Buenos Aires is a cultural gem, with museums, musicals, and dance clubs to rival any city on earth. With more than a quarter century of experience creating remarkable international experiences, Bridge knows how to help you get the most out of your time in Buenos Aires.

From airport pickup to housing placements and cultural excursions, we’ll help to make your adjustment to Buenos Aires as smooth as possible, leaving you to focus on growing personally and intellectually in your new home.

What makes Buenos Aires unique?

You probably already know that Buenos Aires is the birthplace of tango, but did you know that it’s also home to an amazing array of folk music from throughout the country? From the popular laments of the North’s copla jujeña to the heel-tapping rhythms of chacarera and the only-in-Argentina combo of Spanish guitar and accordion that defines chamamé, there’s an amazing variety of musica folclórica on offer in Buenos Aires.

And there’s no better place to catch some than at a peña, a Northern-style community dance party. In Buenos Aires, peñas can take on a lot of forms: low-key performances in cultural centers, giant outdoor festivals, even bar-like spaces with tables and formal dance floors. But these diverse venues all have one thing in common: fine performances of some of the least known but most downright fun music in South America.
