When a crowd gathers around you on the dance floor, it means you either possess awe-inspiring moves or are slowly transforming into a black hole. Become a dance star with today’s Groupon to Paulette’s Studio of Dance. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get entry for two to a Valentine’s dance party with a live band on Sunday, February 12, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (a $20 value).
- For $15, you get a ballroom or Latin group dance class for two (a $30 value).<p>
The two-stepping tutors at Paulette’s Studio of Dance instruct prospective performers of varying dance disciplines during one-hour boogie sessions and also organize social events where dancers can show off their rhythmic mastery. Romance arrives early on Sunday, February 12, when the Valentine’s-themed dance party kicks off with a half-hour group lesson from 5 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., allowing guests to orient their bodies to the gravitational pull of the dance floor and any nearby magnets, before the 16-piece orchestra serenades eardrums with the sounds of big band, swing, cha-cha, and waltz. Attendees are also welcome to bring along snacks or beverages to fuel the festivities and enjoy throughout the night and are welcome to come solo or with a friend, as the event encourages melodic mingling between singles.
For aspiring dancers in need of more than just a refresher course, ballroom-dance and Latin classes teach social dance styles such as salsa, rumba, cha-cha, and foxtrot and put polish on social-dancing basics, helping wallflowers bloom into high-powered waltzing machines at weddings and events. Ballroom dance adds two different dances to toe-tappers’ trick bags each hour, and Latin dance concentrates on spicy south-of-the-border sounds and shimmies. Check the schedule here.
