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 this GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get one general-admission ticket to see Caliente, presented by Atlanta Ballroom Dance Theater at the Ballantyne Ballroom at the Ballantyne Hotel on Saturday, June 30, at 9:30 p.m. (a $30 value). Doors open at 8 p.m.
An onstage explosion of Latin dance, 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. Meanwhile, the Ballantyne Ballroom's nature-inspired chandeliers and dreamy white curtains give guests the impression they've been invited to a grand ball right out of a fairy tale.
