What You'll Get
Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Transmit tidings with twinkling toes thanks to today’s Groupon: for $29, you get three private classes and one month of group lessons (a $145 total value) at Ballroom in Motion on Elkdom Court.
Group lessons from the skilled instructors at Ballroom in Motion introduce the patterns and steps of basic ballroom dances including the foxtrot, waltz, rumba, shag, and cha-cha for multiple partners; half-hour private lessons focus on both the steps and technique of dances for single dancers or couples pressed antler to antler. With the option of attending classes four days a week, Ballroom in Motion patrons can slip on comfortable shoes to spin and dip in tandem to the intoxicating rhythms of the rumba or the silky sounds of the waltz. Ballroom classes meet in the evenings and welcome experienced toe-tappers and beginners with two left hand-feet, with or without a partner.
Associated Content recommends Ballroom in Motion for old-fashioned Southern ballroom dancing:
- Few images can bring back memories of the “Old South” as a handsome couple waltzing through a beautiful ballroom. Reminiscent of Gone With The Wind and a pre-civil war way of life, many southerners seek to advance their ballroom dancing skills simply for the joy of the dance itself. Many northerners simply want to know what all the fuss is about. And should you find yourself a visitor or resident of Augusta, Georgia, there is no better place to expand your personal knowledge than Ballroom In Motion. − Jennifer Remeta, Associated Content
