If one activity can fulfill your human desire to be fit, your human desire to create art, and your more human desire to generate massive electromagnetic storms through rhythmic motion, it's dance. Join the perfect storm of salsa dancing with today’s deal: for $13 you get three passes to Salsa Fever dance lessons, a $30 value. Lessons are organized by the Latin entertainment experts at JC Entertainment and held at the upper lounge of La Fogata Grill in Short North.
Attendees will learn and perform salsa, merengue, and bachata under the expert instruction of Carlos “El Hiperactivo” Rubio, otherwise known as “The Salsa King of Ohio,” a title acquired only through armed dance-off. Students of any skill level and cookie preference are welcome at the newly remodeled upper lounge to participate in dance styles that have the power to hypnotize, exercise, and exorcize. If you’ve never been dancing before, this is a welcoming environment in which to get your toes wet. As they know what it’s like to be a beginner, veterans help lead new dancers around the room.
Classes take place every Friday from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. followed by an open dance session, which you are free to attend freely for free. Afterward, you can use your newly acquired moves to impress relatives and surprise strangers—or just to win back the shadow that ran away because it was too embarrassed to share feet with you.
Valid for Friday-night classes only.
- La Fogata Grill may not be a gym, but these fun, creative dancers are definitely still sweating. While some, like [JC Entertainment's marketing coordinator Oana] Lungu, may exhibit more elegance during the workout, others need not be intimidated...."It's a very safe environment to practice dances," [student Jesse] Slater said, acknowledging the more experienced dancers' willingness to teach beginners. – Kate Liebers, (614)
- Salsa Columbus has a strong following of dancers who are serious about the art of salsa and devoted to the fast rhythms which move their bodies and stir their souls. – Susan Porter-Pintz & Kate Liebers, (614)
Founder Juan Carlos Polanco came up with JC Entertainment as a way to encourage the community to participate in engaging and unique Hispanic cultural events. Polanco and his staff bring people of all ethnicities together with an array of latin-dance classes, musical performances, and private parties. At regularly scheduled events around town, skilled dance instructors teach guests to tap their feet to salsa, cha-cha, and merengue rhythms while DJs spin latin tunes ranging from salsa hits to Ovid's lost reggaeton poems.
