Without dance, people could only hum along to Macarena, and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Let movements speak with this Groupon.
$88 for an Evening of Dinner and Dancing for Two ($241.60 Value)
Evenings begin at 6 p.m. with a reception replete with wine, before instructors lead a 45-minute semiprivate dance lesson. At 7:15 p.m., dancers sit down at white-linen tables for dinner, nibbling on a greek salad and rolls. Catered by Quintessential Catering, main courses include tenderloin medallions with horseradish mousse, bowtie pasta marinara with skewed shrimp, and steamed green beans with red onion. Dinner is then followed by a one-hour dance party.
Dance Pizazz owner Nikki McElvain believes that dancing is not just a fun way to spend an evening, but a way to celebrate life. Boasting more than a decade of experience gracefully swirling across dance floors, she now shares her fancy footwork with patrons of all skill levels at her own studio. She invites teens, adults, and seniors to explore the dance styles of ballroom, Latin, and swing on the studio's floating dance floor, whose low-impact surface relieves feet and joints. Singles and couples hone their technique in group or private lessons, and newly-weds-to-be can prepare for their first dance in wedding-oriented programs. To simulate a real-world dance setting, Nikki turns on the studio’s LED nightclub lights and releases Richard Simmons for evening social dances, where students can gather to show off their newly learned moves.
