Like auditioning to be a superhero's sidekick, dancing requires agility, balance, and a stylish-yet-modest uniform. Twist, turn, and fly with today's Groupon: for $24, you get four dance classes at Danswest Dance Productions (a $60 value). You must choose four consecutive weeks of the same class and timeslot.
Danswest Dance Productions' three studios host a menagerie of summer classes taught by an experienced staff of dancers and designed to cater to groups of all ages. Ballet is designed to teach correct alignment and body placement through exercises and barre work, tap classes assist students in their quests to dance out morse-code novels, hip-hop teaches the methods of popping, locking, and break-dancing in front of wall-length mirrors, and modern dance lets students express emotion and basic gestures used to hitchhike on cushioned floors. Children ages 3 1/2 to 5 can participate in preschool ballet and tap, and kids ages 5–8 can revel in the exciting world of musical theater, a genre best known for being performed by bored coal miners.
