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 $59, you get two private ballroom dance lessons, two group sessions, and two practice parties at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in San Jose (a $286 value).
At Arthur Murray, a panel of certified instructors is ready and waiting to instruct students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Start your light-tripping tutelage by spending some one-on-one time with your personal Astaire before trying out your technique with a slew of partners at group lessons, and showing off shimmy skills during relaxed and fun practice parties. These lessons are ideal for betrothed students prepping for the big wedding dance or a fledgling fitness-seeker looking for a fun, new way to get in ship shape. Stick to a stately waltz, spicy up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful with a few swing steps in your personal repertoire. Whether you're an experienced dancer hoping to brush up on certain techniques or you have two left feet for feet and two right feet for hands, the lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio offer bountiful, dance-based benefits.
Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when an entrepreneur, also coincidentally named Arthur Murray, began selling mail-order dance lessons. Over the course of the following century, the company grew and expanded internationally to become the cavorting juggernaut that it is today. The San Jose studio provides 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.
