10806299_1085009214848290_534719887642781980_nOn Wednesday night, a group of us went to a tango and salsa party in the centre of Montevideo. It was a fantastic way to spend our Wednesday night and it gave us a real insight into the Uruguayan culture. Dances like salsa, tango and batchata are a huge part of the culture of the Rio de la Plata and the dancers at the Salsa party demonstrated this at it’s best! I should have been slightly concerned about the fact that there was going to be many fantastic dancers and I personally have two left feet but I wasn’t at all because Uruguayan people are always consistently welcoming and last night proved not to be an exception.

The earlier stage of the night involved us spectating whilst the experienced dancers showed us how it’s done and then after a couple of cervezas, the addition of some lively latin music, confetti and party horns, the atmosphere had completely changed. Everyone in our group of ‘extranjeros’ got involved and gave salsa a try at one point and you can see some of us in the pictures included below. The night enabled us to meet lots of lovely Uruguayan people, learn about their culture at a level which isn’t usually accessible to tourists and it has inspired us all to take up the salsa lessons alongside our course!
