Honeybees communicate with their colonies via dance because of the medium's expressive nature and because the subtlety of charades eludes drones. Learn the language of movement with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a six-class punch card for drop-in sessions (up to a $96 value) at Action Dance Academy in Tacoma.
Action Dance Academy's staff of sure-footed instructors imparts the wisdom behind a multitude of dance styles, guiding the strides of children as well as adults. Classes encompass the staccato steps of tap instruction, which harnesses rhythm and Morse code to imbue each routine with a subliminal message, and jazz sessions that encourage improvisational footwork. Mommy and Me Movin' and Groovin' classes invite parents to bring along their genetic investments and learn a routine together while children develop rhythmic pattern-recognition skills. Consult the academy's schedule as well as its dress code policy to learn about the sessions and ways to look great while dancing without a leather jacket.
The dance facility sports 16-foot ceilings and suspended floors in each of its studios, minimizing the risks of injury that accompany stumbles or jumps. The academy also fills its walls with a locker room, changing areas, war rooms, and observation windows that gaze out onto the classes.
