What You'll Get
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 with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get two private lessons, two group lessons, and two open dances at American Style Ballroom (up to a $124 total value), located in Washington Square Shopping Center. This Groupon can be used by yourself or with a partner.
American Style Ballroom, a member of the National Dance Council of America, transforms non-dancers into master movers with various lessons taught by a crew of experienced instructors. Two 45-minute private lessons ($50 each, or $30 each for students with a valid school ID) introduce dancers of all abilities and Gene Kelly-ocities to dance styles such as the tango, the waltz, and swing, with the personal attention afforded by private instruction allowing students to comfortably learn at their own pace. Students can then complement their privately procured rumba prowess with two group lessons ($7 each) before igniting the ballroom’s shiny wood floors with fleet-footed flurries during two open-dance sessions ($5 each), held every Friday night. Check American Style Ballroom's calendar for group class and open-dance times, noting that some classes require a business-casual dress code and that students may only attend group classes within their level and below.
Besides being a great way to relieve stress, dancing helps you get exercise and create healthy, lasting relationships, unlike screaming your favorite Saturday Night Fever quotes on the morning train. Let your feet do the talking the next time you're audited by the IRS with dance lessons from American Style Ballroom.
Call ahead to schedule private lessons.

About American Style Ballroom
American Style Ballroom's founder Patric Didier has light tripped his way to a couple of Indiana Classic wins, a few gigs dancing for the Brian Setzer Orchestra, and several commercial appearances. When he's not coaching professional competitive dancers, Patric teaches budding dancers of all skill levels how to gracefully hit the floor. Along with co-owner Jeanne Cross—a veteran instructor with more than 30 years of experience—the light-footed duo and its team lead private and group lessons at the studio's two locations. Students of any skill level pound the boards in styles ranging from raucous swing to elegant Viennese waltz to the slightly less elegant Viennese waltz on stilts. American Style Ballroom also hosts practice dance parties to give guests a chance to air out their new moves.
