Dancers of all skill levels are invited to explore themselves through a variety of dance classes taught by Pera’s experienced and accomplished teachers. Tone your core muscles with a hoop dance class or dance to the Latin beat of Zumba, with classes available three times per week. Give unappreciated abdomens their moment in the spotlight with a six-week belly-dancing course, in which beginning bellies will learn posture, isolations, shimmies, and undulations, before fusing their newly found skills into a complete performance piece. Couples can reignite relationship flames with tantalizing tango sessions while simultaneously boosting self-confidence. Though there is no nudity in this or any other class, stripping away inhibitions is highly encouraged.

With today's side deal, $18 gets you a ticket to one of three upcoming shows at Atlanta Lyric Theatre (a $38.10 value).

As you walk beneath the lit-up marquee into the renovated Strand Theatre, you'll feel the wind's chill on your neck and the excitement your parents probably felt back when going to the movies was a big event. The gorgeous theater is decorated in gold and crimson, with old-fashioned seats and intricate details. Arrive 30 minutes prior to showtime for a pre-show organ sing-along, rousing the spirit of the silver screen.
The sounds of jazz, hip hop, and other contemporary genres fill the four large studios at Gotta Dance Atlanta's 9,000-square-foot facility. Instructors describe the dance and fitness center as a "home away from home" for dancers of all abilities, and it's not hard to see why. Beginners can learn how to cut a rug or mow a hardwood floor in "Explore" classes that require no prior knowledge of dance terminology. Even dancers who have already worked up to the professional level can find a class to match their style, be it salsa or ballet. Students of all abilities benefit from classes such as Awesome Abs and Cardio Hip-Hop, which use dance as a jumping-off point for fitness workouts that tone and shape the body.
