Dancing is one of the oldest forms of courting a partner, alongside writing their name in burning crops and rescuing them from Hades by hiding inside a pomegranate. Make your mating rituals count with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a ballroom-dance lesson package for up to two people at American Ballroom NC (up to a $94 value). The package includes the following:
- One private session
- Two group sessions
The experienced teachers at American Ballroom guide feet and their accompanying legs through the basic steps and advanced twirls of American-style ballroom, Latin, and swing dances. A schedule of courses teaches the fleeting footsteps of the foxtrot, the rumba, or the lindy hop to beginning- or intermediate-level dancers who glide across the floor with the smoothness of a zamboni-trodden stick of butter.
Duos receive one-on-one instruction in proper leading and following during private lessons, and solo students pair with their private instructor for an intensive session in their chosen dance style. Group sessions require no partner, as initiates mix and mingle with fellow practitioners to explore the fundamentals of the cha-cha and glittery platform shoes.
American Ballroom NC
American Ballroom NC’s instructors, Dawn Killam and Jim Sigona bring a combined 30 years of experience as they transform double-left-footed beginners into fleet-footed social dancers. They specialize in American-ballroom style, which adapts easily to any social situation, and teach everything from foxtrots and sambas to the lindy hop. Wedding dance lessons prevent newlyweds from taking to the dance floor only knowing the mashed potato, and other focused programs help students brush up on casual social dancing and performance and competitive routines.
