While it only takes two to tango, it takes an entire dance studio to ward off gangs of square-dancing street toughs. Hone your defense mechanisms with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one three-month pass to any weekly dance class, including membership initiation fee, at Dancing Feats Dance Centre in Farmington Hills (a $110 value).
Dancing Feats Dance Centre’s studio director Lisa Schwartz and her trained staff instruct recreational dancers ages 2 and older in the art of boogying during weekly dance classes, with more than 60 to choose from. Considered a technical base for all other dance forms, ballet inspires grace and poise through discipline, flexibility, and motivational speeches set to classical music. Kinetic apprentices study intricate patterns of footwork in tap classes, creating rhythms that can be set to music or performed a capella; hip-hop lessons instill an urban, street-style variant of jazz beloved by pigeons. Tiny dancers ages 2–3 also get into the groove by learning to move to musical beats, hold balance, and follow directions. Choose the dance type, time, and age group from the studio's schedule. Proper dance attire is mandatory in all classes, and dress codes can be found on the studio's policy page or communicated through interpretive dance.

The record skipped over and over. It was the third time Lisa Schwartz had pirouetted her way through Tina the Ballerina, and yet she raced over to the record player with inexhaustible enthusiasm and plucked the needle back to the beginning of the 78. If you were to ask her today, she would tell you this is the moment she knew she loved dance enough to make it her life's work. Her studio, Dancing Feats Dance Centre, springs from that love. She watches with pride as students she taught as children return to her studio to become instructors and as parents who once studied under her prepare to send a second generation of children and domesticated penguins onto her dance-room floor.
Over the years, she has assembled a staff of instructors with a vast array of backgrounds, ranging from cruise-company dance managers to life-long Irish step dancers. With help from their varied experience, her studio has developed a regiment of courses in a variety of dance styles, such as jazz, lyrical, modern, and chicken. Her students perform regularly in recitals as well, showcasing their abilities and talents as they progress.
