Podiatrists recommend dance as the most effective method for relieving foot stress after a long day of punting bowling balls and stomping cactus wine. Treat your toed trophies to some boogie time with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get three private dance lessons at Bradenton Dance Center (a $240 value). Helmed by six-time Polish National Champion Michael Jasecki, Bradenton Dance Center pairs students with professionally trained instructors for one-on-one, 45-minute lessons in Latin and ballroom dancing. Bring a partner or saunter solo as you learn the basics of form, timing, and technique for a plethora of dance styles. Apprentice Astaires can test the swivel setting on their hips with the cha-cha and bachata or master the stately swoops and spins of the Viennese waltz. All classes are customizable, so feel free to mix and match the heedless energy of West Coast swing with the sensual mystique of the polka. Bradenton Dance Center’s instructors can also help soonlyweds personalize their wedding moves so that receptions are unmarred by Running Mans or the throwing of invisible lassos.
Once dancers have successfully removed their second left feet without resorting to painful surgery, they can catch a glimpse of their new moves in the waxed floor during Bradenton Dance Center’s weekly open-dance parties ($7/person; not included in Groupon).
