Thought to derive from the ecstatic trance states of ancient healing rituals, dance is now primarily used to embarrass children and pound loose floorboards into place. Fix your floors with today's Groupon to Dance With Me. This Groupon is good at either the SoHo, Long Island or Jersey studio. Choose from the following options:
- For $55, you get four dance lessons, four dance parties, and a half-hour private lesson (a $117 value).
- For $40, you get five drop-in Salsacize, Hip Hop (only offered at So Ho location), or Toning Your Body fitness dance classes (an $85 value).
Dance With Me is the brainchild of internationally acclaimed dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy of Dancing with the Stars fame. He's infused years of experience into every instructor, class, and Fantasia-brand mop that self-cleans the studios when no one's looking. With five drop in fitness dance classes you can take advantage of Salsacize or Toning Your Body across all locations, plus hip-hop at the SoHo studio. Each 50-minute Toning Your Body session helps tone muscles and improve posture, flexibility and coordination, whereas the Salsacize combines dance and aerobics to create a fast-paced workout that evaporates stowaway pounds. Check out the current schedule for the days and times of classes (click here for SoHo, here for Long Island, and here for Ridgefield).
Should you opt for group dance lessons, you'll benefit from professional instruction, a fun social atmosphere and the invaluable opportunity to practice your moves with a variety of dance partners, including squid-limbed merpeople. Endorsed by the Dance Vision International Dance Association and National Dance Council of America, the curriculum covers everything from waltz, foxtrot and quickstep to tango, mambo, and cha-cha. The lessons are progressive and available at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels since jumping into advanced steps without mastering the basics would be like trying to build the world's tallest salami sandwich without establishing a solid rye base. In addition to group lessons, you'll enjoy a half hour private dance lesson with an expert instructor to help you master techniques and advance to a higher skill level. You'll also get four social parties, where you can show off fresh moves while acquiring new ones through osmosis. Different genres of music are spotlighted at different dances, just like the levels in Megaman 2. Check each location's site for more information on social parties.
Valid for new clients only.

Dance With Me
Featured on ABC, Fox, and various channels, Dance With Me doesn't just teach students the mechanics of fun, fit, and healthy dancing—they transform them into dancers. And the process goes beyond learning fancy footwork. Participants are welcomed into a setting that cultivates confidence, nurtures self-expression, and bolsters social interaction skills, since it really does take more than one person to tango.
The joy of ballroom dancing becomes contagious at each of Dance With Me's modernized studios, which host classes specifically tailored toward each visitor's goals. And those classes are taught by a uniquely qualified team of professionals, some of whom may have familiar faces. Co-founder Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a renowned Latin Ballroom dance champion, choreographer, and instructor, but he's perhaps best known for keeping celebrities on their toes in his 14 appearances on Dancing with the Stars. Along with National and World Champions and Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars choreographers Val Chmerkovskiy and Tony Dovolani, he has instilled Dance With Me's staff with their professional chops and ability to stay composed when cha-cha-cha-ing with a boom mic.
