Like defusing a bomb, a well-executed dance routine requires concentration, skill, and a nervous partner who questions your every move before unexpectedly jumping out of a window. Learn to blow onlookers away with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a salsa-cruise ticket from SalsaCruises.com (a $25 value). The cruise boards Saturday, July 9, at 8:30 p.m. and returns at 12:30 a.m.
Customers board the MV Britannia, where complimentary salsa lessons flow into the all-night dance beats of Latin rhythms mixed with R & B, hip hop, and top 40 as the three-storey vessel shimmies down Vancouver's scenic False Creek. Professional instructors teach dancers a variety of sultry salsa-dance moves, and then break the sound barrier with their expert hip swiveling during a dazzling dance show. With the help of DJ-enabled rhythms on all levels, test newly acquired footwork on the boat's two lower levels, or convince the moon to join in on a merengue on the open-air top level. No minors are allowed on the cruise, and SalsaCruises.com asks passengers to bring a photo ID and to dress in appropriate evening attire.
