American Style Ballroom's founder Patric Didier has light tripped his way to a couple of Indiana Classic wins, a few gigs dancing for the Brian Setzer Orchestra, and several commercial appearances. When he's not coaching professional competitive dancers, Patric teaches budding dancers of all skill levels how to gracefully hit the floor. Along with co-owner Jeanne Cross—a veteran instructor with more than 30 years of experience—the light-footed duo and its team lead private and group lessons at the studio's two locations. Students of any skill level pound the boards in styles ranging from raucous swing to elegant Viennese waltz to the slightly less elegant Viennese waltz on stilts. American Style Ballroom also hosts practice dance parties to give guests a chance to air out their new moves.
Dance NY Style's cadre of instructors incorporates calisthenics and music to channel the unbridled dynamism of toddlers in fun-filled capering classes. The instructors in the TGI Playday session shepherd flocks of younglings with the ease of a border collie baby-sitter through 2.5-hours of dance, arts and crafts, stories, and snacks. Alternatively, the Toddler Time Dance—designed for toddlers ages 2 and up—melds creative gesticulations with auditory stimulation to hatch incubating creativity. Props and stories help kids stay in character during imagination dance routines with such themes as Princess Cinderella Going to the Ball and Pirates of the Caribbean. Reservations for either activity must be made 24 hours in advance. Call for the most current schedule and to book your appointment.
Arthur Murray's has been teaching the world to dance since 1912. We specialize in teaching singles & couples all of the most popular partnership & social dances. Come see what makes Arthur Murray's the leader in the dance industry!
The instructors at Michiana Dance believe that beginning dancers will learn faster, feel looser, and move better when instructed alone rather than around a group of equally uncomfortable strangers. During private lessons, students learn a variety of dances such as ballroom, West Coast swing, country two-step, or Latin dances as personalized, one-on-one feedback helps them sharpen their technique and fix mistakes quickly. The instructors can also prepare brides, grooms, and wedding parties for the dance floor, helping turn first dances into jaw-dropping performances and chicken dances in to tear-jerking manifestations of grace.
Arthur Murray's experienced instructors and owners, including some who have worked with shows such as Dancing With the Stars, stand ready and waiting to teach students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Bring a partner to your two 45-minute private lessons (a $100 value) or fly solo and dance with your instructor. In either case, you'll leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of your choosing. These lessons are ideal for a betrothed pair prepping for the big wedding dance or a fledgling fitness seeker looking for a fun new way to get in shipshape. Stick to a stately waltz, spicy up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful with a few swing steps in your personal repertoire. Whether you're an experienced dancer hoping to brush up on certain techniques or you have two left feet for feet and two right feet for hands, private lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio offer bountiful dance-based benefits. This Groupon also allows dancers to stop in for one group class ($30 value) to test out their newly acquired skills against unfamiliar counterfeet.
