Today's deal leads amateur dancers and dedicated pros in the most ideal dance-learning environment, since the sink-or-swim method of being ordered to “dance” by a floor-riddling gunslinger has been proven ineffective by behavioral choreographers. With this Groupon, $30 gets you an introductory dance package at Colorado Dancesport; that includes 10 group classes (a $75 value) and two, 25-minute private lessons ($40 each), which the time-strapped can combine into one 50-minute tutorial and the time-encumbered can disassociate into 50 frenetic one-minute sessions. Ordinarily, all this professional-grade coaching would run you $155.
Dancesport's passionate, national-champion instructors maintain a convenient schedule of classes, offering lessons every night except Sunday. You are free to try a variety of dance styles until you find the one your feet want to marry. You'll have your pick of almost every flavor of dance, including waltz, Latin, swing, foxtrot, tango, and country western, along with a funky core-blasting exercise class to help get you in shape for it. To cut down on nuptial nervousness, Dancesport also holds a wedding-preparation class every Saturday at noon, where a procrastinating bride-to-be or a forgetful groom can practice her or his first dance in traditional hoop skirt and wedding mask.
Besides letting you master the basics in a comfortable group setting, this deal pairs you with the instructor who best matches your personality for two personal sessions so that you can fine-tune your posture and moves. Whether your goal is to wow them at the nationals, ascend to the rank of Feudal Warlord of the Dance, or just cut loose at the studio's weekly Friday Night Dance Party without accidentally breaking a bunch of strangers’ toes, Colorado Dancesport will tailor its instruction to help you reach it by the time you finish your package.

Dancesport can help you learn the dance moves you need for the dancesports of today, and the knowledge and skills you gain may even help you with dancesports not yet invented. Here are some of the dancesports of the future:
Danceketball: This combination of basketball and free-style hip-hop dance is poised to become the newest street sensation since the introduction of trampolines to the sport. Danceketball players form a dance line down the length of the court. When they reach the end, they are given the chance to throw a basketball into a hoop. Sunk baskets are worth two points and gravity-defying dance moves are worth 15 dancepoints (dancepoints are worth zero points).
Dancecathalon: A combination competitive ballroom dancing and marksmanship competition. Paired competitors try to make the dance floor smoke with passion while simultaneously attempting to load and fire their weapons at stationary targets as they spin and dip. The second most-deadly dancesport, after Knife-Wielding Dance Rugby.
Cyber Realm Neural Reality Artificial Dance Construction: As advances in technology make leaving the house less and less necessary, homebound dancers can use their neural net-processing units to jack into a simulated dance contest in which reality is represented by Lawnmower Man-like graphics technology. The only danger is going insane with knowledge!

Whether you're a beginner or a multi-trophy-winning competitor, the instructors at Colorado Dancesport want to help you achieve your dancing goals. They take the time to learn why each student is treading their wood floors; some students want to dance in a social, couples-oriented environment, and others are preparing for a special occasion, such as a wedding or an intraoffice dance-off to control copy-machine access. The talented staffers include a former member of the U.S. international ice-dancing team, professionals who danced at the 2008 CMA Awards, and experts in sports conditioning and physical fitness.
In addition to private lessons and group classes, the crew schedules weekly dance parties to help students practice new moves. The team also offers special events, such as traveling to competitions and an annual, professional-style showcase.
