A dance class is generally regarded as the ideal dance-learning environment now that the sink-or-swim method of being ordered to “dance” by a floor-riddling gunslinger has been proven ineffective by behavioral choreographers. Shimmy of your own volition with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get an introductory dance package featuring 10 group classes (a $75 value) and two, 25-minute private lessons (a $40 value each) at Colorado Dancesport, in Littleton. The time-strapped can opt to combine their two private lessons into one 50-minute tutorial.
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, fox trot, 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 a 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.

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.
