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 today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a Latin-dance class package at Absolute Ballroom & Dance Center of Pittsburgh (a $90 total value). The package includes:
- Four group Latin-club classes (a $40 value)
- One 30-minute private lesson (a $50 value)<p>
The 45-minute classes are held on January 5, 12, 19, and 26, 2012, at either 7 p.m. or 7:45 p.m.
The talented team of resident instructors at Absolute Ballroom & Dance Center of Pittsburgh guides nimble feet across 2,500 square feet of dance floor during a series of group Latin-club classes bolstered by the one-on-one assistance of a private lesson. Groups of approximately 20–30 students converge inside the studio for 45-minute 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. Instructors provide individualized attention during the 30-minute lesson, helping students hone their rug-cutting and r-rolling abilities.
