With recent advances in motion-controlled technology, dancing will soon become not only the best way to impress a date, but also the only way to communicate with robots. Let your body do the talking with today's Groupon: for $25, you get any five one-hour salsa-dancing lessons from Kansas City Salsa Lessons (a $50 value). Salsa lessons are held from 8:15 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday at local salsa clubs, following the calendar.
Kansas City Salsa Lessons instructors Howard Carney and Fanny Maldonado model fiery footwork for students of all levels within local salsa clubs, allowing aspiring sashayers to put new prowess directly into practice. One-hour sessions (a $10 value each) highlight casual social dancing, easy partner communication, and the correct accent to fake when asking a stranger for a dance. For a basic introduction to salsa, step onto the outdoor dance floor of Elements, located in The Kansas City Power & Light District on Friday and Saturday, or for intermediate guidance, pivot and twirl within Retro on Wednesday or Madrigall Martini Bar on Thursday. Following each hip-shimmying symposium, DJs at each venue spin a variety of Latin tunes (free for all students), allowing immediate application of skills and endless opportunities for reciting Roman senatorial speeches to the beat.
