Knowing how to dance, like owning a handkerchief, being good at archery, and resisting the urge to draw mustaches on babies, is a mark of a true gentleman. Kick up your genteel heels with today’s Groupon: for $10, new customers get an introduction-to-salsa-dancing package from Salsa Kings in the Graham University Center Atrium on the Florida International University South Campus (a $20 value).
Employing a beginner-friendly one-on-one style of dance instruction, Salsa Kings schools students by limiting distracting partner changes and doing away with the choreography-limiting commands of a “caller.” With the introductory package, Groupon buyers may take as many level-1 introductory lessons as they need to advance to the next tier of classes. Those born with maracas instead of feet who pass through level 1 right away may use the remainder of their Groupon on two more lessons in any advanced level. Salsa Kings instructs beginners in the all-important arts of leading, following, movement, arithmetic, and creativity as they apply to Casino, the Cuban style of salsa dancing. Classes are taught in a group setting of about 25 aspiring Astaires or more, lending the class a light-hearted atmosphere of camaraderie through joint accomplishment and successful human-pyramid construction. A bevy of helpful instructors is on hand to twirl trainees and offer coaching. Classes run Monday through Friday at 8 p.m. and Saturdays at 5 p.m., providing patrons with plenty of opportunities to perfect steps and memorize the chord progressions to favorite songs.
