Having two left feet makes the art of seduction almost impossible, except when standing next to someone with four right hands. Beguile admirers no matter where you stand with today's Groupon to Dance Arts Studios in San Rafael. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get five classes (a $60 value).
- For $49, you get 10 classes (a $105 value).
Dance Arts Studios' instructors get fleet feet flying with a panoply of dance classes set within a studio that Pacific Sun named the best place for dance lessons in 2007 and 2008. The accommodating schedule of ballroom, Latin, and swing dances lets beginners and more sure-footed students build stepping and twirling skills with social dance classes. The Dance for Fitness course centers around fun, upbeat routines that strengthen cores and improve flexibility, teaching students to stylishly retrieve fallen items with a graceful dip. Although not included in today's Groupon, guest instructors and 2011 U.S. Argentine-tango stage champions Gustavo Hornos and Jesica Salomon help to inspire more seasoned dancers to take their tango to the next level in an intermediate/advanced Argentine-tango class.
While dancing, pupils can gaze out the ballroom-size studio's bright windows to look out over verdant green hills. Shiny hardwood floors reflect the light from burgeoning dancers' smiles into the huge mirrors that span two walls, creating a scalding-hot smile-laser dancers can limberly leap over.
For children and teens younger than 18, the five-class pass is normally $40 and the 10-class pass is $70.
