What You'll Get
Discover a better way to impress at swanky social functions than by singing Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde in its entirety. With today’s deal, $15 gets you two private lessons and one group dance party at DanceSmiths' Fred Astaire Dance Studio (a $50 value). Located in Bartlett, DanceSmiths' offers instruction to everyone from those in need of pre-wedding pointers to those preparing for the upcoming Intergalactic Hustle-and-Jive Championship. With this Groupon, you'll get an intro sampler of five to seven different dances. Couples and stag dancers are equally welcome with today’s Groupon, though each partner must purchase their own.
Fred Astaire Dance Studio offers two 30- to 45-minute private sessions in two umbrella dance varieties: rhythm dances and smooth dances. These include social and party dancing, ballroom and Latin dancing, and ultraviolet competitive ballroom dancing. You can use this opportunity to sample several dance styles to see which one is the best fit. You also get to attend one Friday-night group practice party (from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.) to blow off steam and show off newly acquired skills in a social, noncompetitive setting.
Specializing in Latin and ballroom, DanceSmiths' Studio is owned by Beth and Benji Smith, an alliterative pair who have been teaching dance lessons in Memphis for years. No matter how busy your schedule or how leaden your feet, Fred Astaire’s staff of professionally trained instructors will tailor your private sessions to match your skill level and specific goals. Next time you find yourself surrounded by dancing dancers in mid-dance, astound them all by unleashing the skills you picked up under Fred Astaire Dance Studio’s tutelage.
You must be 21 or older to purchase today's Groupon.
Though most Tennesseans have yet to foxtrot to their computer to write online reviews, one YellowPages user gives Fred Astaire Dance Studio a perfect five stars:
- Great people! Great instruction! Lots of fun! You don't even have to have a partner. The teachers dance with you. They do the fun stuff like salsa and swing and the pretty stuff like waltz [sic] too. – williewonka

About DanceSmiths Ballroom Dance Studio
You do not need a partner. You do not need "natural talent." You do not need to be a size 2 or a bodybuilder. All you need to do is schedule your first dance lesson! We teach beginner group classes Thursday nights at 7:15 pm. A new round of classes begins every month, though their skilled instructors can get you up to speed if you join later. The dance class could be Swing, Foxtrot, Cha Cha, Salsa, Tango, or one of the many others DanceSmiths teaches. The schedule is subject to change, please confirm by phone, text, or email ahead of time. When DanceSmiths opened in August 2000, there were four staff and no students. They have preferred to train their own staff, from the ground up; and the same with their students. DanceSmiths has taught thousands of social dancers in Memphis, trained winning professional competitors, as well as Champion Pro-Am students. They are sure that They can teach you to be the dancer you want to be.
