Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Transmit tidings with twinkling toes with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get four group dance classes at Cinema Ballroom in St. Paul (up to a $60 value).
At Cinema Ballroom, swinging students rhythmically master movement in a fun, supportive environment. Experienced professionals guide dancers through each 60-minute class, starting with the basics and progressing into more difficult techniques as students master their new moves and shimmy off their shyness. Dip a chip-toting partner into the spiciness of salsa, learning the cha cha, cumbia, and mambo, or lose your blues in the romantic embrace of the Argentine tango, where fancy footwork blends with raw emotion and the passionate singing of a lovelorn barrel organ. Partners wind their way through elegant waltzes in ballroom class, and Latin dancers incorporate swing, samba, and paso doble into the traditional salsa repertoire. Check the schedule for class times.
