To spice up a dance routine, professionals will wear bedazzled outfits or substitute their partner for a burlap sack filled with fireworks attached to a timer. Go for the pros with today's Groupon to Dallas Swing Dance Society. Choose between the following options:
- For $17, you get a beginner dance package for one (a $39 value)
- For $30, you get a beginner dance package for two (a $78 value)
Each beginner dance package includes:
- Admission to two Swing on a String dances (an $8 value each). The dances take place from 8 p.m. to midnight three Saturdays a month. Each dance includes a one-hour beginner East Coast swing lesson.
- One two-hour mini workshop (a $15 value). Beginner workshops take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. three Saturdays a month. The workshop includes admission to a third Swing on a String dance (an $8 value).
The instructors at Dallas Swing Dance Society teach students to shimmy and shake with dance techniques from the 20s, 30s, and 40s during Saturday-night workshops and dance parties. Teachers kick off each Swing on a String dance with a one-hour tutorial in the basic steps, kicks, and excited facial expressions of East Coast swing. Once newbies have traded in their extra left feet for more skillful phalanges, a three-hour open-dance session allows them to fine-tune new maneuvers and mingle with potential partners. With today’s Groupon, beginning rug cutters attend all three dances in a month, cementing their newfound strutting skills with lots of practice and an optional bucket of actual cement.
In addition, on one Saturday of the month, students can try out a second dance style such as the charleston, balboa, or lindy hop during a two-hour beginner workshop. Styles vary from month to month—see the online calendar for full details.
