Policies

Updates (Jan 5,2022) in italics.

Covid Safety

We plan to host the program with the following conditions:

  • The borders of Argentina are now open to vaccinated travelers with no quarantine requirement

  • High vaccination levels in Argentina and especially in Buenos Aires

  • Fully vaccinated participants only -- and boosters highly recommended before March

  • Fully vaccinated team of professional dancers

  • Masks recommended - we recommend using masks, during the training and if out social dancing, but we will not require you or the professional dancers to wear masks

  • Given the prevalence of the Omicron variant at this time, it is not inconceivable that someone in the group or the group of dancers could have symptoms or contract Covid during the program. Our aim would be for the program to continue. Only participants who are comfortable with this exposure risk should register.

Current Requirements to Enter Argentina

  1. Valid passport (with visa if required by your country)

  2. Fully vaccinated status at least 14 days before travel

  3. Negative PCR test within 72 hours of travel

  4. Argentina Affidavit online form submitted within 48 hours of travel

  5. Health or travel insurance covering Covid while in Argentina (no specific amount required)

See this page from the Argentine government for confirmation and details.

By registering you agree that you can fulfill these requirements, including the requirement to show health insurance.

Payment Policy

50% program balance due February 10, 2022.

Remaining 50% due in USD in cash upon arrival in Buenos Aires.  

Covid Refund Policy

We will offer you a full refund of 2022 deposit and advance payments if you are unable to attend BA. Tango Evolution 2022 by force majeure related to the pandemic, for reasons such as:

  • The borders of your country or region close preventing travel

  • You contract Covid-19 before your travel preventing you from traveling 

  • Someone dependent on you contracts Covid-19 and needs your caretaking

Please note that in registering you are stating your intent to attend and that it is possible for you to travel from your country of residence to Argentina given the pandemic circumstances in your country and in Argentina at the time of registration. Cancellations without significant changes to these circumstances will not qualify for the Covid Refund Policy. Failure to obtain travel/health insurance or to fulfill the entry requirements to Argentina (above) will not qualify for the Covid Refund Policy. 

We will not be able to offer refunds once you have arrived in Argentina and the program has begun, including if you decide to self-isolate due to Covid concerns.

Standard Deposit Refund Policy

For cancellations for any reason that do not qualify for our Covid Deposit Refund Policy (above), deposits will essentially be non-refundable and our standard deposit refund policy applies. (This will apply for the 2022 deposit paid upon registration. 2020 deposits on hold will continue to be held as credit towards a future program.)

Group Confirmation Post-Registration

We will confirm with you by the end of January if we are confidant in moving forward with the programs. We will need to fulfill these two conditions by the end of January: 1) the Omicron surge is beginning to decline, and 2) have a minimum number of participants fully registered. We will confirm with you once we have reached this quota. Please wait to buy your plane tickets until we have confirmed with you. We will confirm by the end of January, 2021. If we do not meet these conditions, we will cancel the program and refund your 2022 registration deposit. 

Cancellation Protocol

If we are unable to host the program or feel it is unwise to do so due to the evolving pandemic or other unforeseen circumstances, we will offer a refund of all 2022 deposits and payments. 

Thank you for understanding! Registration deposits and these policies make it possible for us to run these programs.
