Dance was a basic survival skill for early humans, who had to jitterbug off giant mosquitoes and quickstep out from underneath stampy mastodons. Pay homage to the risks taken by the earliest dancers with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a dance package for an individual or couple at Signature Ballroom in Mission (a $120 value). The package includes:
- Two private dance lessons (a $60 value each)
- Invitation to attend a complimentary group dance party
At Signature Ballroom, experienced dancers Abby Vogels and Matt Schissler introduce budding boogie artists to their choice of ballroom-dance style. Lessons last for 55 minutes and offer journeys into the wild worlds of tango, foxtrot, cha-cha, samba, and more, encouraging novices to transcend hokey-pokeys. Guests can learn to quickstep with Neo-like dodges and nimble-toe magic or discover the difference between East Coast swing and West Coast swing, which has to do with which ocean one falls into after swan diving off a tire swing. Vogels and Schissler focus on creating strong connections between dance partners, training their students to move together with the finesse of an electric mixer's beaters. The lesson package also includes an invitation to a Signature Ballroom-hosted dance party, which grants the opportunity to dazzle onlookers with recently learned toe taps in styles such as foxtrot, swing, and salsa, whereas dancers older than 21 sip on complimentary cocktails. Dancers who use this Groupon will also be offered a 20% discount on two additional classes.

Although Signature Ballroom's instructors Abby Vogels and Matt Schissler introduce their students to a number of ballroom styles–from tango to foxtrot to samba–they also focus on fitness. During private lessons, they not only teach their charges the fancy footwork, but how to use the steps as a means of exercising and losing weight in a fun and creative way, much like completing a coloring book while running on a treadmill. Guests can also work out and build connections between one another with more modern techniques such as East and West Coast swing.
Already existing connections are further strengthened during wedding couples' dances. After teaching prenuptial footwork to just the bride and groom or the entire wedding party, the instructors provide a video of the choreography so their pupils can practice at home in preparation for the big day.
