Dancing is the second-best way to let the body do the talking, just short of being born with a secondary bellybutton mouth. Elegantly express yourself with today's Groupon: for $9, you get three walk-in Latin dance classes at Salsa Caliente (an $18 value).
Salsa Caliente's swivel-hipped movement-mentors passionately instill the principles of Latin dancing in learners of all levels, no dance partner or invisible childhood friend necessary. On Thursday and Sunday evenings, L.A.-style salsa imbues bodies with sensuous rhythms, theatrical flourishes, and an aerobic workout that singes off calories far more effectively and safely than most fire-eating classes. Latin variety classes rotate every Tuesday so that hoofers' hooves get to taste-test cha-cha and bachata, as well as men’s and women’s styling classes.
Salsa Caliente lets loose a mélange of salsa, cha-cha, bachata, and merengue during its midweek social every Tuesday from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m., giving dancers a chance to meet other dancers and strut newly-acquired stuff at no charge while leaving the weekend open for finishing the life-sized Lego Angkor Wat in their backyard.
At Salsa Caliente, expert instructors strive to spread their love of Salsa dance while introducing students to Hispanic culture. Stressing correct form, timing, and style, they lead groups through classes tailored to each individual’s skill level. They also offer private instruction as well as special sessions for upcoming events such as weddings. Salsa Caliente frequently opens its doors for special events, such as birthdays and quinceaneras, and hosts dance socials that allow students to mingle and explore a variety of dance styles, such as cha cha and merengue.
