Like members of high-powered law firms, dancers can only merit partnership after demonstrating years of practice, skillful technique, and an ability to disguise their frustrations through the use of a strategically placed high kick. Master the art of graceful timing with today's Groupon: for $36, you get 12 salsa classes from The Salsa Dance Floor (an $84 value). Classes are held every Tuesday starting at 6:30 p.m. at Bold Steps Dance Studio in Etobicoke.
The Salsa Dance Floor hones hip-shaking techniques in an energetic, club-like atmosphere. Pupils dissect the art of the shimmy by absorbing the instructor's own Sistema method of club dancing, which was developed to teach the fundamentals of partner dancing easily and quickly without the anxiety-inducing complexities of competitive-style salsa. The result is the maximization of hip-shaking fun for boppers of all experience levels. Sharpen one-two counts in 45-minute classes covering basic salsa foot patterns, variations, and specific moves more graceful than the double-handed "woodchopper." Protégés can brandish newly acquired rug-cutting skills after 10 p.m., when classes end and the floor opens for self-directed toe tapping. Dancers need not bring their own partners and are in fact discouraged from attempting to partner with their own superegos or tutu-clad pet rocks.
