You may have shaken your groove thang in every club across the 305, but you havent lived until youve sashayed across a dimly lit dance floor, flirting with your eyes while executing some serious salsa moves with your hips. Whether a lack of rhythm or a lack of partner has deterred you from attempting the quick-quick-slow or quick-quick-quick dance steps, stop your BSing and enroll in Salsa Freak Bootcamp. For $75 in advance and $95 at the door, you get eight hours of intense dancing with world-renowned instructor Edie the Salsa Freak. Thats two hours of The 10 Deadly Sins of Lead and Follow, an hour of Music and Styling, and one of spins. Whew.
Sure, you might earn yourself a few extra bunions from your solo shines and a case of vertigo from all the spinning, but the pleasure will outweigh the pain. And look on the bright side: Youll get VIP seating at Sundays Miami Salsa Congress show, an opportunity to dance the night away at the afterparties, a copy of Edies instructional DVD, and more. Get your ass to class at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
