Arthur Murray's experienced instructors and owners, including some who have worked with shows such as So You Think You Can Dance and 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 private lessons 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 two group classes to put their newly acquired skills to the test.
While all of us spend each day moving, it takes an analytical awareness of self to become a movement expert like Jayne Bernasconi. The owner of Yoga on York leads a double live as dance faculty member at Towson University and an Aerial Dancer. She combined the aerial silks of her dance career with the asana of yoga, debuting her newly invented aerial yoga at the Aerial Dance Festival in Colorado in 2002. Her original creation represents but one of nine types of yoga taught at her studio, and stands alongside classic sequences, yoga and Pilates fusion classes, and yoga for kids.
After taking down Villanova and Morgan State, the Towson University Tigers plan to continue their winning ways against NCAA FCS foes with team coordination honed by coach Rob Ambrose. The four remaining home games promise a thrilling Homecoming on September 24, when the Tigers hope to roar past Colgate's Raiders and claw their way to a collective nomination for homecoming queen. Throughout the season, look for sophomore quarterback Grant Enders—who recently was named CAA Offensive Player of the Week—or speedy running back Sterlin Phifer to celebrate touchdowns in the end zone against the Richmond Spiders and Delaware Blue Hens. Co-captain and defensive back Jordan Dangerfield will try to improve his status as the nation's 24th-ranked sacker by blasting through New Hampshire's offensive line using archaic tactics the Visigoths once used to sack Rome.
Lead by creative choreographers Lee and Christine Gedansky, Beginning Ballroom offers classes sure to intrigue fledgling frolickers and conga captains alike. The Ballroom Blitz class introduces students to four different dance styles. Get lethargic feet moving with the rumba, foxtrot, cha-cha, and swing, each taught during a different week. Master these moves to gain the confidence needed to own the dance floor at weddings, impress people at parties, or assimilate to the vintage decade you'll inevitably be trapped in thanks to your experiments with time travel. The Gedanskys possess more than 20 years of dance experience, including gold and silver medals in regional competitions. These debonair footwork artists instruct students of all ages and abilities in a comfortable, supportive atmosphere conducive to social, non-competitive, dancing fun.
