Until Thomas Edison’s patent on walking expired in 1931, Americans were forced to create elaborate dances to get from place to place. Relive a previous era’s only legal means of locomotion with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get 10 dance lessons from Hawaii Salsa (an $80 value).

Hawaii Salsa is Oahu’s prime location for either learning the basics behind Latin dance or refining an already ravishing repertoire. With a 10-class punch card, students can drop in on any of Hawaii Salsa’s regularly scheduled classes as well as bring a friend to share in the experience. The school hosts group lessons every day of the week in three sweat-intensive dance styles: salsa, merengue, and bachata. Beginner classes focus on the “Fab 5” dance moves of salsa, including the basic step and the cross-body lead, the latter of which also protects from the invasive x-rays of nearby supervillains. Intermediate dancers can advance beyond the basic patterns to learn more intricate feats of kinesthetic prowess.

As an added bonus, Hawaii Salsa sponsors a Hot Salsa Social at the Honolulu Club every Friday night, where, for $5, students of all ability levels can show off their newfound moves. School founder Greg “The Salsaman” Henry leads acclaimed dance troupes that perform statewide and on the mainland, creating a delicious cocktail of Latin rhythms, Hawaiian style, and a dash of bitters.

Hot Salsa Hawaii

The son of a Californian flamenco dancer, Greg “The Salsaman” Henry was captivated by dancing early on. At the age of 3, he joined in on performances with his mother’s dance troupe. Years later he went on to found the Hot Salsa Dance Company, which puts on interactive latin-dance shows throughout Hawaii and California. Henry and other company members also lead the company’s instructional arm, Hot Salsa Hawaii, teaching group classes to beginning and intermediate dancers.

In these classes, you can learn the basic steps of Dominican Republic–style merengue, a more energetic version than its Haitian counterpart. You can also work toward mastering the sideways footwork of the bachata. Classes are limited in size to ensure that each student gets plenty of attention from the instructor.
