Dancing is the second-best way to let the body do the talking, just short of being born with a secondary bellybutton mouth. Elegantly express yourself with today's Groupon: for $85, you get one week of classes in the summer intensive dance program at Jeanne's School of Dance in Mesa (up to a $175 value). Classes run June 6–23, Monday–Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and dancers must have three or more years of ballet experience.
The professional phalange tappers at Jeanne's School of Dance have been harmoniously instructing students in the art of smooth moves for more than 50 years. During the summer intensive dance program, patrons partake in three to four classes daily, learning such foot-flailing techniques as ballet, contemporary, jazz, Pilates, and the toe-stub boogie. Tap your way into character lessons to forget about your compulsive jazz-hands syndrome, or morph awkward appendages into graceful music interpreters in a modern-dance class. Arizona Youth Ballet's artistic director, Christina Hampton, leads the pack of professional plié producers, harnessing years of experience in performing, directing, and ballet-shoe whispering.
