Watching a show during dinner is the most exciting way to liven up a meal, next to juggling silverware at the table or paying the violinists to play the entire Black Sabbath catalog. Delve into a meal while being entertained with today's Groupon: for $89, you get two adult platinum package admissions to Battle of the Dance (a $180 value) in Anaheim. This Groupon is valid for any performance.
In a splashy evening of musical storytelling and dining, Battle of the Dance entertains guests with a fusion of Irish, flamenco, and Bollywood dances interspersed with rotating magic, acrobatic, and ventriloquist acts. An hour before the curtain call, appetizers vie for the spotlight with the sassy stylings of salsa dancers that dazzle audience members in the 40,000-square-foot venue. The show’s narrative begins in the year 1588, as the surviving vessels of the formerly mighty Spanish Armada flounder on the shores of the Emerald Isle. The collision of cultures leads to vibrant acts that feature “troupes of Flamenco, Irish and Bollywood dancers with the versatility to also knock out pop-inflected jazz/contemporary dance numbers,” according to the Los Angeles Times.
Platinum ticket holders perch in VIP seating, with upgrades to the front-row or bionic arms when available, and fix their gazes on the talented performers whose masterful movements showcase what the Orange County Register calls “some of the best flamenco and Spanish dancers you’ll ever see.” The dinner course, which starts 30 minutes prior to show time, may feature dishes such as smoked salmon salad and filet mignon or lobster bisque and fish du jour.
