Recent studies show that people who dance tend to possess above-average strength, endurance, and flexibility, as well as a significantly lower risk of getting served. Hone this vital skill with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get five 50-minute group dance classes and three practice parties at Nick Felix's Dance Magic Studio in Warr Acres (a $300 value). Classes are held Monday, Thursday, and Friday at 7 p.m. Practice parties are every Thursday from 8 p.m. until about 9:30 p.m. Couples may share a Groupon if they attend the same session.
During each 50-minute group lesson, Dance Magic Studio's head fancy-footer, Nick Felix, and his nimble squad can teach singles and doubles traditional ballroom dancing, rotating dance styles each day. Available dance genres include fox trot, waltz, and tango, as well as country, swing, and rumba, with each class efficiently exorcising demons from proms past or failed devil dance-offs. During each lesson, Nick teaches new footwork, allowing feather-feet to drop in at random until all five classes have been filed under the “rhythm” section of each well-organized brain. During practice dance parties, 10,000 square feet of floor space frees eager students of movement to liberate stiff legs and attempt complex maneuvers without accidentally stepping on any nearby feet or Bigfeet.
Nick has choreographed dozens of television dance programs; taught his magical moves to stars such as Robert Duvall, Lee Majors, Frankie Avalon, Mickey Rooney, and Tess Harper; and recently had his journey featured in the documentary show Gallery on the OETA network. Busting a move you've never busted before—be it a tango move, a jazzercise move, or a well-coordinated move to a nicer part of town, away from that mouthy opossum that keeps opening your mail—is a great way to get exercise and learn a new skill. Students should feel free to dress casually for class, but they should don more evening-appropriate footwear for practice parties.
