Dancing is one of the oldest forms of courting a partner, alongside writing their name in burning crops and rescuing them from Hades by hiding inside a pomegranate. Meet your match with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a ballroom-dance package for one person or a couple attending together at Beyond Dancing, redeemable at the Nokomis and Sarasota locations (a $270 total value). The package includes:
- Three 40-minute private lessons (an $80 value each)
- Three group classes (a $10 value each)<p>
Beyond Dancing’s experienced instructors fuse American and international dance styles, filling minds and limbs with the know-how to perform ballroom and Latin dance routines. Hip shakers shimmy through Latin foot-stepping styles such as salsa, or set feet to gliding across ballroom floors to the waltz and the Peanuts gang shuffle. Groupon holders can pair up with classmates or bring their own partner at no additional cost. In private lessons, syncopation specialists spend 40 minutes honing the broader range of skills acquired in group classes and dance-offs to determine who gets the first taxi.
The experienced instructors at Beyond Dancing guide students through an array of styles, including tango, ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, Irish, Latin, ballroom, and modern dance. Private and group classes are held in a spacious studio.
