Salsa dancing, like spelunking or a staring contest, is best performed with a partner. Learn in tandem with today’s Groupon from Jose Cruz and the Salseros Dance Company. For $30, you get a salsa-lesson package (a $108 value) including the following:

Artistic director Jose Cruz has guided hips and feet in the art of salsa dance for 12 years, drawing on his combined talents as a performer, choreographer, and Latin-rhythm musician. Available in three levels based on prior experience and spiciness, Jose’s beginner’s salsa classes ground students in the fundamentals of salsa dancing, a social art form known for its smoothness, sensuousness, adaptability, and strong sense of justice. During each class, partners learn basic steps, patterns, and techniques and a private session gives students the confidence to step out on the dance floor or in the post-office parking lot.

After learning the basics in class, students can two-step to the Vet’s Club Ballroom for Salsa Night. To begin the evening, Jose leads salsa classes, free with admission, at 8:30 p.m. and 9:15 p.m., warming up attendees’ feet and hips for three more hours of hot Latin dancing. From 10:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m., DJ Jose plays a variety of music, from cha-cha to merengue, as dancers step in time, sway their hips, and swing from the rafters.

Jose Cruz Salseros Dance Company

A dancer since 12, Jose Cruz moved to the states at the age of 18 and performed with a dance group in Eugene. Soon enough he realized that his talent and passion for dance was pushing him to start his own troupe. A few years later, Salseros Dance Company was born. Cruz also started a dance studio where he and his hand-selected instructors teach the dance styles that first enticed Cruz to the United States. Private and group classes along with workshops and parties give students a chance to learn at instructors' skilled dressed feet. During parties, Cruz himself DJ’s; students practice the steps they learned in class, or confusedly imitate their instructor and make disc-scratching sounds all night.

We had a blast taking the dance lessons from Jose. And his instructions were easy to follow. His passion for dance was obvious and it is so cool that he is willing to teach and share his passion.
