All the waltzes and grapevines in yesterday's dance closet are covered with mothballs and dust. Today's Groupon knocks moths out with salsa moves so spirited they turn any humble dance closet into a svelte dance armoire. For $15, you get six salsa and Latin dance lessons from Salsa-Baby (an up to $42 value). This deal is good for any six one-hour drop-in classes; Salsa-Baby conducts more than 25 classes a week with plenty of daily options at its spacious, well-lit Central Avenue studio.
Classes such as beginner salsa, advanced salsa, bachata, cumbia, hip-hop, and reggaeton teach a myriad of Latin dance moves. Dancing is a heart-pumping workout, and the fast-paced tempo of salsa music makes for vigorous calorie burning while learning. The fleet-footed dance instructors at Salsa-Baby will release the dance-floor master within you through patience, clear instructions, and encouraging personal support.
Dancing is a fun way to erase the self-consciousness that holds back the incredible moves the world deserves to see and worship. While anyone can prove that "salsa" is Spanish for "sauce," no one can disprove that "salsa" is German for "great dancing." Salsa helps unlock the turntable in your hips, blending flashy turns, twists, and spins into a whirling storm of devastating sexy. Only new Salsa-Baby dancers may use this Groupon.

Here's what owner Avery Meizner told the University of New Mexico's newspaper, New Mexico Daily Lobo, about Salsa Baby's atmosphere:
- There are a few social establishments that do play salsa music, but they’re generally more drinking establishments. People just spend their nights sitting around a bar. We’re a dance studio, but we create a party environment so you can feel like you’re dancing salsa at a club all night.
Latin tunes and hip-hop beats rumble through Salsa Baby's studio as footloose instructors lead students of all experience levels and ages through the twists and turns of fitness and social dances. Group salsa classes teach beginners the basics of leading and following, whereas sessions for intermediate movers dip into more complex and nuanced approaches, such as alternative timing or how to dance your way out of a bar fight. A quintet of instructors choreographs fun and challenging Zumba, salsa aerobic, and striptease workouts, and the onsite hip-hop troupe, Iron Bred Kidz, gets both funky and fresh while teaching the latest yard-stomping moves at schools and parties. Aside from group classes, Salsa Baby also hosts private lessons for myriad dance styles, such as the tango, waltz, and rumba.
