Dance was invented as a means of expressing oneself, with a waltz saying "I love you" and a tap dance saying "this pavement is too hot." Communicate the ineffable with today's Groupon to Ballroom in Motion. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get one month of group dance classes for one person (a $40 value).
- For $34, you get three 30-minute private dance lessons and one month of group dance classes (a $145 value).
Specializing in the arts of cha-cha, waltz, swing, and rumba, Ballroom in Motion's experienced dance instructors teach aspiring hoofers how to trip the light fantastic in both private and group ballroom-dancing classes. In weekly group sessions, students spend 55 minutes honing the steps of their chosen dance, gliding elegantly across the floor in a waltz or shimmying off trash-talking shoulder parrots in a cha-cha. Under the guidance of an experienced instructor, dancers spend one month building upon basic steps until they've assembled a full repertoire of fancy footwork. For a more personalized experience on the dance floor, patrons can opt to add three private lessons for one-on-one attention and marathon staring contests with instructors.
