Without dance, people could only hum along to “Macarena,” and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Let movements speak with this Groupon: for $39, you get a Salsa Plus class package at Absolute Ballroom & Dance Center of Pittsburgh (a $115 total value). Each Salsa Plus package includes:
- Five one-hour Latin dance lessons, offered March 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29, at either 6:30 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. (a $75 value)
- Four admissions to salsa dances offered each Sunday at 7:15 p.m. (a $40 value)<p>
The talented team of resident instructors at Absolute Ballroom guides nimble feet across 2,500 square feet of dance floor during a series of group Latin-dance classes. Groups of approximately 40–70 students converge inside the studio for one-hour classes that allot space to learn an array of introductory skills, including how to perform basic Latin steps, or piece together clues to find a dance partner. Gliding guests perform the romantic lilting motions of bachata or the complex and majestic movements of the merengue, and cardiac systems get in a workout while learning the energetic and rhythmical cha-cha or hip-swiveling salsa. The classes build upon skills introduced from the first to the last class, and focus on the Latin social styles that will equip dancers for a night out at the club. Students can show off their new rug-cutting moves and r-rolling abilities during Sunday night salsa dances beginning at 7:15 p.m.
