After extensive testing, scientists determined their sentient dance machine’s “killer moves” were, in fact, as harmful to humans as they were to sound. Keep dancing safely within mankind with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one four-week salsa class from Dance SF (a $60 value), with sessions held once a week in San Francisco and the East Bay. Locations vary, so check the schedule to confirm.
At Dance SF, instructors sway bodies with fun, four-week classes that take beginners through basic footwork and salsa rhythms, with intermediate and advanced sessions offering salsa aficionados more challenging instruction. The social class structure—partners rotate throughout every session—creates a low-pressure learning environment and keeps dancers from scrambling to locate a partner or human-shaped tupperware container. The one-hour beginner classes are mostly filled with salsa novices and new dancers, and Dance SF's experienced and engaging local salsateers are patient and friendly when showing new students how to bust well-timed moves. During intermediate classes, which require six months or more of social dancing experience, students focus on timing and cross body leads with turns. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing, which includes dancing shoes, but does not include rear-flapped onesie pajamas.
