Think of all the moments in life when being an excellent dancer could totally open doors for you. If only you had the skills taught at City Dance, you could show them off in a variety of social contexts to your great benefit:
- Cutting in line at the amusement park normally garners scowls, but cutting in line while performing ballet pirouettes generates applause.
- At a job interview, your resume and cover letter make great lyrics to a song and jazz dance routine (punctuated with white-gloved jazz hands) that will surely get you hired.
- When getting mugged, a Beyoncé-inspired hip-hop dance routine actually doubles as a defense tactic: your bizarrely hypnotic pelvic motions entrance muggers and your steely hair serves as a mace-whip.
There’s so much cool stuff you’re going to be able to do, but first you have to learn the moves. Good thing today’s Groupon lets you do that for half off.

The San Francisco Chronicle says City Dance has classes that “are not only places to study; they are places to celebrate.” Yelpers have nothing but love for the studio, giving it 4.5 stars. Here’s what some are cyberly saying: > * “I attend FitWell with Julianna 3 nights/week and LOVE IT! Her workouts combine bar method + mat work which makes it fun. The workout strengthens, lengthens and tones, and I noticed a difference in my body within the first month. Seriously!” – rebecca w. > * “Needless to say, I’m hooked. I want to see when the next set of classes are, with the attempt to grow and enhance my moves, get better, more fly, sharper. With conveniently timed classes, and genuinely nice and rockin’ choreographers and dancers, all I could say when I left was, ‘See ya’ll, same time, next week.’” – Danielle S. > * “City Dance Studios is the best studio in the area that nobody knows about! I know because I’ve tried them all. People who know it, love it. But I’m constantly meeting dancers who live in SF and have never heard of this best kept secret. It is clean, affordable, has parking, and inspiring spaces. – Melissa E.
