Developed by U.S. Professional Latin Dance Champions and choreographers for So You Think You Can Dance?, Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatins' Dance Time Squares assembles some of the world's nimblest dance instructors to teach Latin and ballroom rug-cutting in an energetic, welcoming atmosphere. During five 50-minute group lessons, aspiring hip artists and veteran hoofers alike can learn the steps, swings, and the surprisingly high occurrence of NFL-referee hand signals in dances such as the salsa, waltz, foxtrot, swing, rumba, mambo, or merengue. After a few classes at Dance Times Square, you'll be ready to impress friends with slick new moves at nightclubs, dance socials, and Supreme Court hearings.
Alternatively, spouses-to-be begin the wedding package with a consultation, accompanied by champagne and a box of chocolates, in which they discuss music choice, dance style, and the properly choreographed angle for smashing cake into faces. Two 50-minute private lessons bolster poise and polish for a matrimony-worthy first dance, while a 50-minute group class teaches basic footwork, rhythmic exercises, and partner communication skills. Finally, a rehearsal dance at one of the studio's parties, like a mechanical-bull-riding lesson, teaches the couple to maintain composure while awed onlookers ogle them for a full song's duration.
