Life is a dance, which is why multitasking hoofers twirl vacuum cleaners merrily and wear cheese-grater-bottomed shoes in the kitchen. Shred a rug with today's Groupon: for $35, you get two private lessons, two group lessons, and two group dance parties at Dance Makers Fort Worth (a $174 value).
Dance Makers Fort Worth 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. An initial private lesson with an experienced instructor helps target individual needs and diagnose multiple left feet. Beginning group classes, held at 2 p.m. on Sundays and 7 p.m. on Tuesdays, teach the building blocks of ballroom, country, and Latin dancing, guiding toes on an international tour of one-two steps. Meanwhile, the beginner club Latin group class on Thursdays at 8:45 p.m. dispenses tips for conquering the dance floor without the assistance of a Mongol army.
Polish off moon-dust-covered dancing shoes at dance parties held Fridays at 9 p.m., complete with a warm-up class at 8:30 p.m. that loosens joints, inhibitions, and the lips of doomed sea captains. Classes are nonsmoking BYOB affairs commencing with ballroom dancing, moving through lively swing and Latin dances, and rounding out with down-home country jives.
