In ancient Rome, arenas were famous sites where merciless gladiators and soldiers were forced to square off in life-or-death ballroom waltzes. Master dance at a friendlier stomping ground with today's Groupon. For $50, you get $100 toward any classes or dance apparel from Arena's Performing Arts Centre, located just a few miles from the Pittsburgh International Airport in Moon Township.
Arena's Performing Arts Centre offers a variety of classes for inner and outer children alike. Adults can choose fitness ($8 for a drop-in class) and 10-week dance classes (starting at $110 for 45-minute classes) from a summer schedule that includes zumba, tap aerobics, ballet tech, pointe, pre-pointe, and kickboxing. For kids, summer camps such as Camp Rock and Blues ($100) and Arena's Best Dance Crew ($125) teach boogie-ready anklebiters the joy and discipline of dance. Or surprise your mini-me with a themed birthday party at Arena's. Monthly tuition for gymnastics and musical-theater classes starts at $40. The friendly instructors at Arena's are experienced, patient, and willing to work with all age and skill levels.
Like bowling, rodeos, and a Sunday-afternoon hammock hiatus, dance classes require certain attire, especially footwear. Use your Groupon toward Arena's dancewear (valid for in-stock items only) and be sure to check out the dress code to decide whether your leotard ($15–$25) will best suit your ballet shoes ($18) or whether you should pair your tap shoes ($18) with tights ($8–$12). After you're adequately attired, you'll be ready to exercise, build self-confidence, and foot-slap gravity in the face with a swift battement tendu jeté kick at Arena's.
