Knowing how to dance, like owning a handkerchief, being good at archery, and resisting the urge to draw mustaches on babies, is a mark of a true gentleman. Perform a sophisticated strut with today's Groupon: for $14, you get four beginner salsa classes at Bailamos Salsa Rueda (a $28 value). In addition to the four classes redeemable with this Groupon, customers will also receive an additional class for free.
At Bailamos Salsa Rueda, a team of professional hip swivelers trains aspiring dancers to become well versed in the most poetic of body languages. Inside the spacious hall, dancing dilettantes of all ages may fuel a newfound love for the Latin American movements with several other beginner dance addicts. Designed for students to learn rhythm, style, and technique at their own pace, the classes offer a fun, no-pressure environment. The Rueda style of dancing allows group members to interact with each other as the instructors call out specific instructions, which enables students to arrive at each lesson without a partner or a Great Dane that knows how to stand on its hind legs.
Four enthusiastic instructors direct each group, teaching students how to lead and follow moves while tapping on the floorboards to send downstairs neighbors messages via Morse code. Classes meet each week on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. and Wednesdays at 8 p.m., and it is important that students arrive on time to receive the full benefit of their spotlight-stealing sessions.
