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 this Groupon.
- $60 for a two-day salsa bootcamp on August 2–3 (up to a $120 value)
From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and noon to 7 p.m. on Saturday, students gather to get a firm foundation in salsa dance. They'll be in the company of salsa-lovers from all over the state and beyond: the bootcamp is part of the Alaska Salsa Festival at the Hotel Captain Cook.
Alaska Dance Promotions
Alaska Dance Promotions hosts rhythmic, Latin-flavored classes for budding rug-cutters during Alaska’s largest dance festival, the Alaska Salsa Festival. Students who opt for the salsa-immersion program dive into a sequence of 12 weekly classes built around a cumulative curriculum that discourages drop-ins as thoroughly as steel ceilings. Alternatively, patrons can bolster their cardio fitness with the athletic dance moves and international rhythms of Zumba classes, opt for one-on-one lessons, or follow group classes as they roam through spicy modalities such as bachata, cha cha, and meringue. Partnerless dancers are welcomed and smoothly paired with fellow students, and classes require no specialty gear, only comfortable outfits in breathable fabrics.
