Recent studies show that people who dance tend to possess above-average strength, endurance, and flexibility, as well as a significantly lower risk of getting served. Hone this vital skill in good company with today’s deal for five group lessons at Academy Ballroom, located in The Shops at Western Plaza. Six nights a week (every night but Tuesday), Ballroom Academy's veteran, enthusiastic instructors lead and encourage aspiring ballroom buffs on the shiny practice floor. Warm overhead light illuminates the studio's larger-than-championship-sized boogie surface, offering ample space and professional ambiance for students try their feet at salsa, swing, two step, west coast swing, and more. In the interest of awe-inspiring application, Academy Ballroom also hosts a weekly dance party every Friday night ($10 admission per person, $5 with student ID). Check the studio's complete monthly class schedule here, and call to reserve your spot in the five group classes of your choice.
Dance Tonight co-owner Jeremy Norris knows his students. "When it comes down to it, everyone really dances for one reason: to have fun," he states on his school’s website. Co-owner Emily Loyless and their staff of fellow NDCA-registered instructors share his sentiment. In addition to teaching salsa, west coast swing, and country dancing, their dance studio turns into a ballroom dance party on Friday nights where students practice moves from their lessons. Norris and company also schedule Zumba dance fitness classes, whose calorie burn far exceeds that of completing 100 Macarenas.
