Wednesday nights offer Viennese waltz or rumba at weekly or drop-in rates. Check out the calendar for more.
Thursday -- TangoGet in touch with your inner Latin lover at the biggest tango milonga in town. Christy Cote and Adolfo Cazarry teach a free beginners' class at 7p.m, followed by an intermediate/advanced class at 8 ($15). The milonga runs from 8:45 p.m. until 12:30 a.m.
Friday -- Back to Blues
Thank God it's Friday Night Blues at Studio Gracia in SOMA, which offers two classes starting at 8 p.m. before a night of dancing until 1 a.m. $10 for dancing only, $5 extra for each class. Studio Gracia also offers classes throughout the week in salsa, Argentine tango, and Brazilian samba. There's also an intriguing "Embodied Waves" class which someone should go check out.
Saturday -- Salsa
If you're looking to learn a dance that will make you exude sexiness, look no further than Cafe Cocomo. Despite its odd name (comatose coconuts come to mind), Cafe Cocomo is the heart of the S.F. salsa scene, with lessons offered four days a week by different instructors and dancing every night. $10 for all-night dancing, lesson included.
Monday -- Blues
