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.

One-hour Salsa 101 classes teach groups fundamental skills such as timing, footwork, and leading and following; these skills blossom into simple dance patterns and combinations set to the pulsating beats of Latin music. No partner is necessary, but instructors recommend that students wear shoes that don’t easily slip off. Classes are held on Thursdays at 7 p.m. at Madison Ballroom Dance Studio.<p>
Dance instructor Gabriela Gonzalez calls upon more than nine years of experience to lead high-energy classes that compel groups of as many as 50 students to shake, spin, and sweat while learning the principles of styles such as ballroom and salsa. Gabriela’s bilingualism allows her to conduct classes or private sessions in English or Spanish, leaving no student charged with the task of interpreting her lightning-quick body language as she teaches such skills as leading and following, dance steps, and transitions. Most group classes welcome students of all skill levels, and since no partner is necessary, they're a fantastic way to socialize. More advanced classes cater to competitive dancers and tend to focus on fancy footwork, dance-floor etiquette, and proper stage-diving form.
