Fred Astaire and extinct birds of paradise know that it's far easier to acquire a mate by dancing with them than by talking to them or staring at them intently. Take advantage of this principle of nature with today's deal: for $35, new customers get a one-hour private dance lesson from Cincinnati Ballroom Company (a $75 value). You can take any dance lesson the ballroom offers; no introductory class is required. You don't even need a dance partner, though you're allowed to bring one, if you can dupe your preferred partner into attending what he/she thinks is a seminar on fixing clocks (one Groupon covers both of you). Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
Because they allow you to learn the kind of ballroom dance you want to learn at your own pace, private lessons are the most effective and efficient way to grow a pair of happy feet. During your 50 minutes inside the bold red walls of Cincinnati's historic brick building in Oakley, your instructor will figure out the way you learn and keep the tone positive and fun no matter how many times you squash his or her toes. Cincinnati Ballroom's instructors are still competing and still winning, so you won't have to worry about being taught obsolete dance moves such as tango 2.1, which is highly vulnerable to viruses and spyware.
Your private lesson at Cincinnati Ballroom guarantees that you'll never again feel frightened and uncomfortable when your office night janitor puts on some romantic music, extends a hand, and says, "Shall we dance? Please say yes. I really need this."
Cincinnati magazine mentioned the Cincinnati Ballroom Company in the late 90s, but most of its customers are too busy dancing to write online reviews, so check out these testimonials provided by the company:
- I had the most fun I have ever had! The teachers were the nicest and obviously the most talented in the area. My husband and I always felt welcomed every time we came in for lessons. The instruction was always clear and presented in a very friendly manner. We would have kept taking lessons if we had not had to move. Thanks for making our short stay in Cincinnati so much fun! – Suzanne W.
- It's not unusual to see high schoolers, college students, and 50- or 60-somethings…You'll have to work hard not to have fun! – John C.
