A ballerina must practice for hundreds of hours in order to perfect her movements, much as a geneticist must create hundreds of abominations before perfecting a clone of his childhood cat. Try, try again with this Groupon.
$39 for Two Months of Dance Classes ($85 Value)
The studio's selection of dance classes includes ballet, a discipline that focuses on grace and technique; pom pon, a blend of cheerleading and dance; and hip-hop, a freeform interpretation of jazz that's set to contemporary music. The studio serves children as young as 3, as well as adults. See the schedule and dress code; each class meets once a week. This Groupon covers the first two months' worth of classes, but dancers can choose to keep attending classes through May.
Dancing Feats Dance Centre
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.
