Moving one's body to the rhythm of music is a natural human instinct, just like running toward the sound of lightning. Move with today's Groupon: for $25, you get four group dance classes to use in one month at Academy of the Arts' two locations in Shawnee or one location in Overland Park (a $55 value).
Academy of the Arts imparts fancy footwork through classes tailored to students of any age or skill level. Children’s classes cover a wide range of dance styles and steps, from jazz to hip-hop to the Peanuts gang shuffle. While little ones improve their smooth moves, adults can shimmy their way through an energetic Zumba class or perfect pirouettes in ballet classes accompanied by a pianist or the re-animated fingers of Igor Stravinsky. Children's classes host up to eight trainees, and adult sessions top floors with up to 12 toe-tappers. Academy of the Arts lines each of its studios with floating Marley or wood dance floors to reduce joint impact and allow for longer periods of fatigue-free rug cutting.
