The refined human form in the motion of ballet is inspiring to aspiring dancers, captivating to anatomy students, and vexing to small mammals that prefer twitchy, disjointed movement. Send nearby pygmy marmosets into a jealous tizzy with today's deal: for $5, you get admission to a class of your choice at Collage Dance Collective (a $10 value), located in Cooper-Young. Get up to five of today's Groupon for quintuple lessons.
The Collage Dance Collective assists prospective choreographers and aesthetic expressers in their exploration of classical and contemporary ballet, with a mission to maintain a multicultural aesthetic and to expose more African American students to classical ballet training. The deal grants those looking to add nimble and graceful movements to their swagger access to one of six classes, including Ballet I (ages 4–8), Ballet Boys I (ages 4–8), Adult Ballet (ages 15+), and Creative Movement, where dancers can express their exquisite appreciation of corn dogs through dance. Acrobatic scholars will learn proper alignment, basic ballet positions, and how to coordinate movements, all in a fun, uplifting environment for males and females alike. Students can check the school's dress code to determine what type of leotard and tights they'll need to don for each class, to avoid being the dancer who confused the word "leotard" with "Leonard Nimoy costume."
Collage Artistic Director Kevin Thomas boasts over two decades of ballet experience, having performed with the Dance Theatre of Harlem and in London's Royal Ballet, and the school's 25 ballet-swamis each have extensive dancing credits and are patient and accommodating to dance-pupils. Slap on some tights, listen to the techno remix of The Nutcracker, and learn the fundamentals of ballet with today's Groupon.
