What You'll Get
Recent studies show that people who dance tend to possess above-average strength, endurance, and flexibility, as well as a significantly lower risk of getting served. Hone this vital skill with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two nights of salsa dance classes (a total of four hours) at Salsa Mía at Yuca Lounge (a $60 value). There are plenty of partners to go around, so you won’t be sitting in the corner a la high-school homecoming’s “boys-one-corner; girls-in-the-other; single-eyed, plunger-shaped tralfamadorians on the ceiling.”
Led by a crew of professional instructors, Salsa Mía classes are a great way to introduce your feet to the salsa beat, or to ratchet pre-existing skills to a level worthy of a spot in a Merle Haggard comeback music video. Beginners will learn all the steps and twirls needed to amputate that second left foot and leave a mark on the dance floor. Advanced dance machines will be challenged to learn new tricks by the highly experienced class leaders. Catch an insider’s peek of the studio with these pictures and videos.
Salsa Mía offers classes for all levels and all ages, but only on three days—Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays at 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Check the calendar for the full schedule of classes. Stay late after your Friday class, when the whole place erupts into a giant dance party. Like a butterfly emerging from another butterfly, the studio undergoes a transformation from careful instruction to wild non-instruction. Show off your new moves, or pick up some scalding hot steps. Show up on the right night and you might even meet such famed Salsalitas as the Chiquita banana lady.
