Argentine CookingThis is a fantastic activity for those who want to learn more about traditional Argentine cuisine! One free cooking class is included in the Student Activities, but there is actually so much more! Learn about the endless influences in Argentine food from Italy, Spain, and France paired with the fusion from the native peoples of the Quechua, Mapuche, and Guarani. Indulge in the well-known preparation of grilled meats from Argentina and learn how to cook a decadent meal that will always take you back to Buenos Aires!
Argentine DanceArgentina is famous for its great Tango scene. Tango originated in bars and port areas of Buenos Aires where influences from the immigrating Europeans into the country played a great role in its evolution. As a result, tango today has influences from old Milonga songs (songs of the rural gauchos), Habanera (Cuban music), Polka and Mazurka (Slavic music), Contradanse (Spanish music), Flamenco (from Andalucia), as well as Italian folk music. All influences create a great mix of sounds that are a blast to dance to!
