If one activity can fulfill your human desire to be fit, your human desire to create art, and your more human desire to generate massive electromagnetic storms through rhythmic motion, it's dance. Stir up the perfect storm with today's Groupon: for $39, you get eight group lessons at Dance Bethesda (a $104 value).
Dance Bethesda's rhythmic body twirlers offer lessons in styles ranging from tango and waltz to swing, foxtrot, and salsa. Both newcomers and limber-legged pros can drop in on any eight scheduled classes, offered in the afternoons and evenings throughout the week, to prepare for upcoming weddings, dance contests, or auditions for roles in which their character has a familiarity with group dance lessons. Expert teachers challenge their students to master new moves while enjoying the experience, unlike "self-defense" classes that pit students against saplings. Dance Bethesda maintains a relaxing atmosphere in which friendly staff and sprung-maple dance floors keep students happy and steady on the Earth's surface.
Professional dancer Michael Rye mesmerizes students with his agile movements and 100% bona fide Australian accent. To help students become fluid in the language of ballroom and Latin dance, he works alongside a team of expert instructors to helm group and private lessons seven days a week. During lessons, they prepare students for regular social-dance parties where guests partner up with able-bodied peers to practice their moves and toe wrestle over who is going to lead. The seasoned two-steppers can also prep engaged couples for their big event with wedding-specific lessons. They devote Monday to Latin dance fitness and Thursday to west-coast swing. The studio features two floors laid with sprung maple for a softer feel on the dancers’ feet and robotic joints.
