Before radio, music was broadcast via Morse code, which turned everything into treble-heavy dance music punctuated by demands to STOP. Limber up for more graceful dance moves with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a private dance lesson (a $60 value), a group class (a $20 value), and one dance party (a $20 value) at Art of Ballroom Dance Center (a $100 total value).
Art of Ballroom Dance Center owner and founder of the Cincinatti Dancesport competition Eleanor Lachman and her team of skilled instructors teach feet the basic steps required to set a dance floor on fire. In the introductory class, fledgling foot tappers play with the basic building blocks of dance, including foot position, rhythm and timing, leading and following, and Legos. More experienced dancers can perfect their salsa, swing, disco, cha-cha, mambo, or fox-trotting abilities during advanced classes. After attending a group class to practice their new moves, budding ballroom connoisseurs strut their stuff at one of the studio's dance parties, where both novices and veterans twirl and spin in an encouraging, fun environment.
