Dancing is the second-best way to let the body do the talking, just short of being born with a secondary bellybutton mouth. Elegantly express yourself with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a four-week Popular Social 8 course package at Columbus Dance Centre (a $69 value). The experience includes:
- Eight group classes in the eight most popular ballroom dance styles (a $69 value). Classes take place Tuesday and Friday nights from 7:45 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
- Four Friday night all-practice dance parties. Practice dance parties begin at 8:30 p.m.
The professional instructors at Columbus Dance Centre refine movements in one of the city's largest ballrooms, training hips to detect rhythm and feet to step lightly in the patterns of classical and modern dance styles. Oscillating bodies swing in to group classes that hone the booty-shaking methods of four or more aspiring rug-cutters, with dance instructors leading sessions on the basics and rotating partners for extra practice and rhythm-based social networking. Torsos swoop through ballroom social classes, fine-tuning maneuvers used in the waltz, tango, merengue, and cha-cha; hip-hop classes relocate movers onto the contemporary scene. Latin styles get hips shaking to exotic tunes, and sweat-inducing Zumba torches calories to a beat. Every Friday at 8:30 p.m., the 6,000-square-foot studio transforms in to a club for some extracurricular rug cutting, providing a platform to mingle, show off skills, and get tips from the pros.
