Dancing can feel as natural as breathing, but stepping onto a dance floor unprepared can feel as natural as breathing bubbles. Today’s Groupon helps you exhale on the dance floor with conviction: for $30, you get a seven-week adult group Latin-dance class at Soul2Sole (a $120 value). Choose from the following locations: Markham, Thornhill, Mississauga, Vaughan, or Toronto.
Salsa, merengue, cha-cha, bachata, and the Latin hustle are the hip-shaking stars at Soul2Sole, which teaches adults, kids, professionals, and betrothed couples the cornerstones of these classic dance forms. After seven weeks of Soul2Sole’s group classes, newly minted dancers will have mastered silky salsa moves such as cross-body leads, right and reverse turns, and the New York step, which comes with a jalapeño bagel. The studio's seasoned instructors turn standers into dancers with patience and enthusiasm and offer Tuesday practice sessions at the Thornhill location. Partners are not required for any group class, though a cheering section may spontaneously manifest with the first merengue pretzel hold. Per Soul2Sole’s class schedule, the next sessions begin May 19.
Founded in 2000 with the intent of introducing the Toronto community to Latin dance, Soul2Sole now employs a vast team of knowledgeable instructors whose passion for their art permeates every facet of the classes they lead for adults and children alike. Nimble limbed teachers follow a progressive curriculum in each lesson series, building each class on a core of salsa bolstered by a host of equally fiery styles such as Bachata, Cha-Cha, Kizomba, Casino Rueda, Merengue, and Latin Hustle. Throughout classes, instructors patiently impart essential Latin dance skills upon students, expounding upon fundamentals such as rhythm and timing, turn patterns, and smoldering stares.
