Without dance, people could only hum along to "Macarena," and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Watch movements speak with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get one general-admission ticket to see Caliente, presented by Academy Ballroom International at the Savannah Riverfront Marriott on Saturday, January 28, at 9:30 p.m. (a $30 value). Doors open at 8:30 p.m.
Part of the Savannah Dance Festival, Caliente showcases the seasoned rug cutters of Academy Ballroom International. Sambas, cha-chas, rumbas, and tangos raise the room temperature with sultry moves, quickening pulses and allowing haberdashers to easily reclaim stolen merchandise from melted snowmen. Colorful costumes further engage rapt eyes in onstage action with bright sequins and swirling folds. The show takes place at the cheery, greenery-filled Savannah Riverfront Marriott, with onsite restaurants and bars for a preshow or postshow drink to lubricate throats left dry from program-eating contests.
