Dance can express many human emotions: grief, fear, longing, and undeserved pride in your passable imitation of a swan. Take yourself for a spin with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $49 for two 45-minute private lessons for an individual or couple (up to a $150 value)
  • $69 for three 45-minute private lessons for an individual or couple (up to a $225 value)
  • $69 for two 45-minute lessons for a group of up to eight people (up to a $180 value)

Individuals or couples learn correct footwork and form, and the directional movements for leading and following for any style offered by the studio, including the cha-cha, waltz, swing, two-step, tango, and line dancing. Near the end of each lesson, the instructor analyzes each student’s performance and points out the best areas to focus on for improvement.

Beginners Only Social Ballroom & Latin Dance Studio

It's not easy to take over for a guy like Allen Darnel, a 55-year ballroom-dance veteran who taught celebrities such as Zsa Zsa Gabor and Aldous Huxley. But now W. Michael Smith and Enrique Baez-Trevino are cutting in on the recently retired Beginners Only Social Ballroom & Latin Dance Studio founder's waltz, and they have impressive resumés of their own to brandish. Baez-Trevino has studied under prominent trainers since he was 13, and Smith has trained in both theater and broadcasting, a background he believes helps him give clear instructions to his students. These two masters lead 45-minute private lessons for individuals, couples, and groups of up to 10, sharing their knowledge of swing, salsa, and the tango in private rooms. The schedule is unusually flexible, with lessons available until 10 p.m. on Monday through Saturday.
