Recent studies show that people who dance tend to possess above-average strength, endurance, and flexibility, as well as a significantly lower risk of getting served. Hone this vital skill with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get six dance classes at Bees’ Knees Dance (a $60 value). This Groupon is valid for redemption at Bees' Knees Dance's locations in Toronto and St. Catharines.
Bees’ Knees Dance offers adult dance courses, specifically geared toward beginners, in a fun and low-pressure environment. Students can put their sextet of drop-in dance classes ($10 each) toward either of the studio's timeless styles—jump, jive, and wail through the lighter-than-air Lindy Hop moves of swing dancing, or shake, rattle, and roll through a sock hop of the mind with rock ‘n' roll dancing. The one-hour classes are led by a fearless brigade of instructors ready to take on even the most inexperienced of toe-tappers. And with six to 30 students in the typical class, you'll enjoy social interaction far more pleasant than your ill-fated attempt to hand out free hugs at the zoo. The fall schedule (beginning in September) has classes offered Monday through Thursday, with summer classes held on an abbreviated basis—see the schedule page for up-to-date info on current offerings.
No special uniform or footwear is required for the drop-in classes (just wear clothes and shoes that are comfortable for movement), and though most moves are taught to partnered pairs, there is no need to arrive fully equipped with your beloved or a boyfriend hired on a freelance basis, as partners rotate regularly throughout each class. Call ahead to reserve a spot for your first class, and commence the cutting of rugs without needing to again affix scissors to your sandals.
