Studying dance has been shown to increase physical strength, boost mental health, and endow its students with the power to hip-hypnotize invasive plant species such as the hairy bittercress or the Carrot Top. Learn the tools for tantalizing toe-work with today's Groupon: for $18, you get three Latin dance classes at Dance Therapy Studios (a $36 value).
Dance Therapy Studios, founded by internationally experienced hoofer Ashton Feliciano, emphasizes the fun, stress-relieving, and socially invigorating aspects of dance. With three Latin dance classes ($12 per class), tenderfooted tenderfoots and skilled sashayers alike can learn the basics of music-accompanied movement in three of five available Latin styles. The bachata adds a pelvic pop to a walking Cuban hip motion, while the rhumba seductively lets hips do much of the legwork. Bounce to the Brazilian beat of the samba, slink through the syncopation of the cha-cha, or master the close-quarters choreography of the merengue. Each class runs 45 minutes, allowing students to fully embrace their inner Fred Astaire, Martha Graham, or Millard Fillmore in less than an hour.
While students' shins feel the thrill of a well-executed box step, their social receptors will also light up, thanks to the interaction fostered by Dance Therapy Studios' group classes. Classes are offered Tuesdays through Sundays, with the bulk of them held on Saturday. Assassinate your inner wallflower and carve your name in the dance floor through a few choice steps with three Latin dance classes at Dance Therapy Studios. Call to schedule your class.
