What You'll Get
There's a way to incorporate dance into any mundane activity, such as treating a vacuum cleaner as a dance partner or wearing shoes with cheese-grater soles. Shred a block of cheddar with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two private lessons, two group lessons, and two group dance parties at DanceMakers of Texas (a $65 value). DanceMakers of Texas transforms ungainly clompers into sashaying swans with a variety of ballroom-dance classes. Choose from a smattering of partner-dance styles, running the gamut from waltz to nightclub dancing. Private lessons with an experienced instructor help target individual needs and diagnose multiple left feet. Beginner group classes teach the building blocks of ballroom, country, and Latin dancing, guiding toes on an international tour of one-two steps. Check the schedule for class times. Polish dancing shoes for dance parties held Fridays at 9 p.m., complete with a warm-up class at 8:30 p.m. that loosens joints and inhibitions. Parties are nonsmoking BYOB affairs commencing with ballroom dancing, moving through lively swing and Latin dances, and rounding out with down-home country jives.
