Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's posttouchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Transmit tidings with twinkling toes thanks to today’s Groupon: for $49, you get two private dance lessons and one group dance lesson for a single dancer or a couple at Darren's Ballroom Dance Studios in Carmel (a $170 value).
Voted onto CityVoter's TheIndyChannel.com A-List in 2010 and 2011, Darren's Ballroom schools students in the basic steps and techniques of a diverse lineup of ballroom and Latin dances. Kick off terpsichorean studies with two 40-minute private lessons, teaching feet the sauciness of salsa or swing’s hep-cat steps under the tutelage of a seasoned instructor. Group sessions help students debut in an intimate setting, as gaggles of 25 or fewer dancers drill muscle memory into competent toes with repetition and complimentary step-chart tattoos.
Owner and instructor Darren Crupp boasts 17 years of studio, classroom, and competition experience, including work on the promotion of the film Shall We Dance. In addition to training the hot-steppers of tomorrow, Darren's Ballroom is a proud member of the Mesothelioma Community Resource Network.
Darren's Ballroom Dance Studios
When the cast of Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights needed a dance consultant, they called Darren's Ballroom Dance Studios’ owner and instructor Darren Cupp. When professionals on Dancing with the Stars needed training, they sought out Darren Cupp. And when CityVoter handed out awards in 2010 and 2011, they honored Darren Cupp. Drawing from more than 17 years of experience, Darren works alongside a staff of skilled dancers to teach students of all skill levels to navigate the dance floor without earning the nickname Ol' Hammer Feet.
Instructors school pupils, from sole students to entire wedding parties, in a diverse lineup of dance styles and fitness classes. They kick off terpsichorean studies with lessons in styles such as swing, rumba, and salsa, as well as ballroom staples including the foxtrot, waltz, and tango. They also lead Latin-inspired fitness classes, busting fast-paced moves and sometimes incorporating dumbbells to burn more calories and whip dancers into shape. In addition to training the hot-steppers of tomorrow, Darren's Ballroom is a proud member of the Mesothelioma Community Resource Network.
