What You'll Get
Dance classes are a great way to learn new moves for showing off at a wedding or awkwardly ending an already awkward elevator conversation. Express yourself wordlessly in any situation with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get six latin dance classes (a $90 value) at Dance Academy of Salsa & Modern Latin Dance in Humboldt Park.
The fleet-footed experts at Dance Academy of Salsa, such as Miguel Mendez, school rug-cutters of all ages and abilities in the fundamentals of latin light-tripping. During your six one-hour group classes, you'll master the rhythmic rudimentals of salsa, bachata, merengue, cha-cha, or mambo, starting with the most basic steps, and progressing each week to incorporate turn patterns, cross-body leads, and the fine art of romancing a pineapple with your eyes. Guys will learn to lead, ladies will learn to follow, and partners will rotate frequently to keep things fun and flirty for partner-less promenaders.
Classes take place seven days a week in a spacious dance studio bedecked with wall-to-wall mirrors that help dancers perfect their own steps while keeping a sharp eye out for zombie-Charo. Dancers are advised to dress comfortably in jeans, skirts, or jump suits, and to wear normal party shoes, though gym shoes, while not recommended, are still acceptable.
