School your soles in a subject more useful than the rules of courtly love, cuneiform calligraphy, or the metric system with today's side deal. For $15, you'll get four swing-dance lessons worth a total $30 at 23 Skidoo!, a small studio offering lessons for all ages and skill sets. This Groupon is good for 23 Skidoo!'s 7 p.m. Thursday classes specializing in East Coast swing or jitterbug. Courses begin on the first Thursday of each month and take place on every Thursday throughout that month. No partner is required for enrollment and all classes take place inside the Mercury Cafe.
Twelve-year veteran of the dance floor Tiffiny Wine has been shaping the Denver swing scene with regular tutorials, performances, and DJ sessions. She aims to apply her impressive credentials (Tiffiny has won or placed in the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown, Midwest Lindy Fest, Reno Dance Sensation, National Jitterbug, and Rhythmic Arts Festival) to offer individualized instruction and create a fun, inviting atmosphere for dancers of any skill level. So strap on some comfortable footwear and learn to dance like they did during the happiest period in human history—the 1930s and 40s.
