by Abigail Dill, Buenos Aires Dance Project Study Abroad Participant
I was among a few select dance majors chosen for a study abroad trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina. I had the time of my life touring the city, taking dance classes, watching performances and rehearsals, and making new Argentinian friends. Everyone in Argentina was so welcoming and friendly!
I am so thankful to have had this amazing opportunity to experience a new part of the world and to learn about a new culture. The best part was that I was able to experience all of this with some of my closest friends. Some highlights from the trip were seeing Edgar Degas paintings in the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, walking around the beautiful Cementerio de la Recoleta, touring the Colon Theatre, and taking dance classes at the Universidad Nacional de San Martin. My favorite memory was Tango dancing at a Milonga and watching a champion couple perform. The pair danced together so beautifully that it brought me to tears.
There were so many unforgettable memories made on this trip and I am so thankful that I was able to be a part of them. In the future I hope to continue to follow my desire to travel and experience the beautiful world around me.
