Swing Dynamite offers a bevy of swing-themed classes, all taught by swing-dancing champions in a Chapel Street studio. Your Groupon is good for one of four beginner's classes—start with Swing I or Swing II to gain the fancy footing needed to outdance a security laser during your next museum heist, or twirl into the West Coast Swing I or II classes for a taste of the more smooth and modern style of swing dancing, with blues, funk, and modern pop infused into the tunes. Partners aren't necessary for the six-week classes, and the fun and friendly instructors ensure that classes are upbeat, feet-on learning experiences. New beginner's classes begin every two or three weeks; check out Swing Dynamite's calendar for class times and dates.

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by legendary toe tapper Fred Astaire himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Students learn how to glide through a classic waltz and foxtrot or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or mambo. Hoofers-in-training build their skills and confidence in two private lessons, during which they'll trip the light fantastic with their instructor and a partner (if desired), without tripping on the light itself. Private lessons can be tailored to match any dancer's skill level and specific goals. Pupils further refine their high-stepping at a Fred Astaire group class and take a turn around the floor at one of the studio’s 90-minute dance parties, during which bodies can show newly perfected shimmies and feet can celebrate their coming-of-age among brethren.

Master Florin Fratean started training in martial arts in 1977, launching himself into a multi-decade career marked by work with iconic teachers, including Gen. Choi Hong Hi, the founder of Taekwon-Do. Fratean doesn't keep his accumulated wisdom and expertise to himself, though. Rather, he teaches a range of martial art disciplines, including Taekwon-Do, Muay Tahi/kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu jitsu, and MMA, to students of all ages in his 5,000-square-foot martial arts studio devoted to boosting health, self-confidence, and the ability to fend off attacks from wooden boards. For kids, he and his team supplement self-defense classes with crafts, monitored homework time, and games during an after-school program, which provides free rides from school by a licensed bus driver. They also offer CrossFit BootCamps, which blend techniques from a swath of martial art forms with movements from traditional fitness and body shaping regimens for an effective and well-rounded approach to exercise.

When they aren’t waltzing circles around the competition on dance floors across Canada and the United States, Oksana Ivanova-Shelkovyy, Yuriy Shelkovyy, and Ilya Maletin are running Dance With Us Ottawa, a school for ballroom and latin dance. During private, semiprivate, or group lessons, the dancers teach techniques with an individualized approach to each student regardless of a person’s age, experience, and number of left feet. Newlyweds-to-be can wow onlookers during their first dances with moves learned in wedding dance classes, and students looking for a fun way to get fit can find it in Zumba classes that provide cardio workouts while targeting glutes, arms, and cores with easy-to-follow Latin-inspired dance moves.

The talented instructors at Ottawa Dance Academy draw from a variety of experiences to teach their classes. For example, one instructor regularly competes in Latin ballroom-dancing competitions; another is an award-winning ballerina who claimed a starring role in the National Ballet of Canada's production of The Nutcracker. Students can learn to express themselves on the dance floor with Latin ballroom dances such as cha-cha, rumba, and samba, or they can opt for jazz, modern, or ballet lessons. The studio's teachers lead both group and private classes.
