The instructors are kind and patient. I learned a great deal in a short amount of time and would recommend them to any dancer both beginning and advanced.

What You'll Get

It takes two to tango, which is why the Three Stooges pursued careers in quantum physics. Let your feet find their calling with today's Groupon: for $20, you get four ballroom classes (a $40 value), four salsa classes (a $40 value), four swing classes (a $40 value), and one private lesson (a $90 value) at Academy of Ballroom Dance (up to a $210 total value). Classes must be used within six weeks of the first class.

Led by experienced competitive dancers Jenell and Jim Maranto, classes at the Academy of Ballroom Dance instill quick feet and sinuous moves into their rhythm-savvy students. Ballroom classes, led by Cecilia Mendoza, combine ballroom and Latin styles for beginning dance students unfamiliar with the nuance of waltz or the challenge of maneuvering around twirling canes and hoop skirts. No partner is necessary, and students can drop in to the 8 p.m. Thursday session whenever they begin their six weeks of instruction. Salsa lessons, at 6 p.m. on Sundays, feature sultry Latin moves rooted in the hips, and swing classes at 7 p.m. on the same night educate students in old-school flips and twirls. The private lesson allows teachers to hone in on individuals' dance styles and movement habits, focusing on personalized one-on-one instruction that ensures every single student will be class valedictorian.

About Academy of Ballroom Dance

Over careers spanning 25 years and 15 pairs of spontaneously combusted shoes between the two of them, Academy of Ballroom Dance instructors Jim and Jenell Maranto have chalked up a long list of professional-dancing and dance-instruction achievements. The pair entered the dance world from backgrounds as high-level college athletes, and after meeting and teaming up, they whirled through professional dance competitions, winning every major Open Professional Smooth contest in the United States and two consecutive US American Smooth Championships in 1993 and 1994. More recently, the couple has taken to training new generations of winning dancers, including several US Pro-Am and Amateur champions, and both have won teaching awards for their efforts and their ability to explain high-level physics while foxtrotting. Any level of dancer may receive private instruction from Jim or Jenell in any of 26 styles of dance.
