Project Review

The Santa Teresa Ballet is a program directed at children and youth who live in areas of social risk and has as its mission to promote academically complimentary and grounding socio-cultural integration through artistic expression.The BST also aims to create a center for entertainment and culture in an area lacking such enrichment. Factors such as the existing prejudice between social classes of the neighborhood have previously prevented the creation of a cultural center. One hundred and fifty youth ranging in age from 3 ½ to 18 years old attend the ballet school, which is divided into six classes.

Arrangements for Room/Food

Accommodation: Our volunteers are lodged in wonderful Guest Houses in Santa Teresa, one of Rio de Janeiro's most enchanting neighborhoods.

Food: Brazil is a relatively inexpensive country for foreigners, but it all depends on your lifestyle. As described above, Iko Poran houses also have fully equipped kitchens where the volunteers may cook. A meal at a restaurant may be as cheap as R$ 7.00 in very nice and healthy popular restaurants or up to R$ 30.00 in nicer places.

Any Missing Important Information

Payments:

  • It is not necessary to send any payment in advance, payment should be made locally.
  • The volunteers may begin their placement only once they have paid the program fee in full and in cash upon arrival. This way, the volunteers do not need to think about money anymore and can concentrate on their programs and on the results achieved.
