Dancing is a healthy way to physically connect to someone, preferable to giving them a painful bear hug or sewing your head onto their body. Get cheek-to-cheek with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get 10 one-hour salsa classes at Salsa Heat (up to an $80 value). This Groupon is valid at any of Salsa Heat’s six studio locations.
At Salsa Heat, students of all abilities twist, stomp, and strut through six levels of salsa classes hosted by instructors who command the attention of more than 40,000 registered participants. Inspired by the intensity of Afro-Cuban rumba and the spirited swinging of just-whacked piñatas, salsa’s Latin dance moves ignite a fiery fiesta of feet throughout one-hour lessons. Whether students fly solo or arrive with partners in tow, each drop-in class presents the opportunity to dance in pairs and work up a spicy sweat thanks to the style’s aerobic steps and turns. Instructors recommend that students wear comfortable shoes with leather or hard soles to each class. Schedules vary between locations; refer to the website for an up-to-date listing of class times.
Though Salsa Heat sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Salsa Heat a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
When discussing his teaching philosophy with reporters from Central Florida Lifestyle, the owner of Salsa Heat quipped, "if you can walk, you can dance." He himself didn't know much about dancing when he took his first salsa class in the early 90's, but he caught on after just a few sessions, falling in love with the dance's energetic spins and rhythmic movements.
Today, a team of professional dance instructors teach salsa spins and footwork to students of all experience levels. Zumba and bachata classes provide tutoring in other Latin dance styles, and salsa classes for kids teach youngsters dance fundamentals that hone coordination and motor skills. Throughout the year, the staff hosts special events on their spacious dance floors, such as salsa socials, salsa Christmas parties, and salsa-infused celebrations of Robert Heinlein's birthday.
