Circus bears untrained in the art of dance are often the least popular big-top attraction, falling somewhere between the bearded lady and a slice of stale rye bread on a pedestal. Ensure an appearance in the spotlight with today's Groupon: for $48, you get two private lessons, two group lessons, and two practice parties at Arthur Murray Dance Studio (a $160 value). Today’s Groupon is valid at any of the studio's seven locations.
Arthur Murray Dance Studio’s panel of experienced instructors trains students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Groupon holders can bring a partner to the private or group lessons for no additional fee, or fly solo and dance with an instructor or an extraordinarily graceful coat rack. In either case, dancers leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of their choosing, such as a stately waltz, a spicy rumba, or the vibrantly playful swing. Practice parties encourage students to step back from formal instruction and give newly learned techniques a test drive. Feel free to mingle with other students under the protective cover of dimmed lighting, which camouflages missed steps or the discouraged use of dance-enhancing flash cards.
Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the business’s namesake began selling mail-order dance lessons. The studios ensconce dancers in a warm, aesthetically sound environment for engaging in private and group dance lessons superbly suited to slicing and dicing a rug until it is no longer recognizable.
Though Arthur Murray Dance Studio offers one free private lesson to every new student, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
