After extensive testing, scientists determined their sentient dance machine’s “killer moves” were, in fact, as harmful to humans as they were to sound. Keep dancing safely within mankind with today's Groupon: for $25, you get four drop-in salsa dance classes from Dance SF (a $60 value), with sessions held in San Francisco and the East Bay. Locations vary, so check the schedule to confirm.
Dance SF sways bodies with fun, fast-paced beginner classes that focus on learning basic footwork and mastering salsa rhythms. The social class structure—partners rotate throughout every session—creates a low-pressure learning environment and keeps dancers from scrambling to locate a partner or human-shaped Tupperware container. The one-hour classes are mostly filled with salsa novices and new dancers, and Dance SF's experienced and engaging local salsateers are patient and friendly when showing new students how to bust well-timed moves. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing, which includes dancing shoes, but does not include rear-flapped onesie pajamas.
