To make dance routines flashier, professionals often wear sequined outfits or burlap sacks filled with fireworks. Watch the floor light up with this GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get one ticket to Pasión de Baile, presented by the Academy Ballroom Dance Theater at the Savannah Riverfront Marriott on Saturday, January 26, at 9 p.m. (a $30 value). Doors open at 8 p.m.
After the Savannah Dance Festival competitions wrap up and winners are selected for the Grand Finale competition held in October, Academy Ballroom Dance Theater’s talented hoofers present an evening of rumbas, cha-chas, foxtrots, and tangos. The fancy-footed performers sport elaborate, colorful costumes as they let fiery Latin dance music influence their body language. 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.
