The art of dance, like the art of potato chip impersonation, is more fun when done with a friend who can occasionally dip you. Taste the rhythm with today's Groupon: for $49, you get an eight-week beginners' social dance class at The Dance Company for the Performing Arts in North Versailles (a $110 value).
Emphasizing a fun-loving appreciation of the artform since 1981, The Dance Company for the Performing Arts whisks students through social dance classes that are ideal for beginners. Under the supervision of artistic director Pat McKeown, highly trained instructors cure dance-floor phobias with experienced instruction in social dance. Meeting on Tuesday and Friday evenings, the eight-week class demystifies some of the most enjoyable dance styles known to bipeds and bipedal horses. Within the company's high-ceilinged and convivial facility, the secrets to that most beguiling of dances—the waltz—will be revealed, along with cha-cha, swing, and salsa. At the close of the supportive and noncompetitive eight-week session, participants may well emerge with the skills to impress their friends with a newfound capacity for proficient rug-cutting and clipping perfectly even samples of shag carpet.
