Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's posttouchdown 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 $39, you get an eight-week dance class (a $96 value) at Belle Pointe Dance & Movement Company in Byron. You have a choice of the following classes: Move with Me (mom-and-baby classes), Adult Ballet, and Adult Tap.
Belle Pointe Dance & Movement Company offers professional dance instruction to hoofers of all ages and skill sets. Owner and artistic director Jennifer Hiltz, an accredited dance instructor with certification from the British Association of Teachers of Dancing, strives to give each student an outlet for self-expression, self-discipline, physical fitness, and toe-shoe flaunting. In the studio's eight-week Move with Me class, designed for new mothers and their infants or toddlers, a yoga and Pilates warm-up begins the 60-minute class, followed with mother-with-child choreography inspired by Latin, jazz, belly dancing, and ballet styles. Adult Ballet and Adult Tap classes, which also require no previous experience, introduce students to the basic techniques of those disciplines, such as ballet positions, syncopated rhythms, and proper tutu maintenance.
