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 with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of dance classes at Center Stage Dance Studio in Cheektowaga.
Professional dancer Annette Osinski founded Center Stage Dance Studio 29 years ago, providing a space for students of all ages to compose florid symphonies of bodily self-expression. Students can bring enlightenment to their feet with one of the many dance classes that range from classical to hip-hop. Ballet and en pointe focus on soft movements and graceful footwork, imbuing students with the skillful elegance of a swan on ice skates. For contemporary tastes, hip-hop brings together a slew of moves––including breaking, popping, locking, and krumping––that originated in the 1970s and '90s. Center Stage also instructs adults-only sessions and Mommy & Me classes, open to parents and their little ones or mad scientists and their Frankenstein monsters. Weekly class sessions range from one hour ($40/month) all the way up to five hours ($150/month); call the studio for class times and availability.
Center Stage Dance Studio tends to talented tootsies with a 7,500-square-foot facility that houses a quartet of studios. Each classroom boasts its own sound system, barres, mirrors, and cushioned hardwood floors to lessen the shock of jumps on joints distracted by their Gameboys.
