Without dance, people could only hum along to “Macarena,” and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Let movements speak with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a dance package at World of Dance (a $90 total value). The package includes the following:
- Two 30-minute private lessons (a $70 value)
- One 60-minute group lesson (a $10 value)
- One 60-minute group-practice party (a $10 value)<p>
The professional instructors at World of Dance lead students of all ages and skill levels through a schedule of lessons in ballroom styles such as swing, tango, and samba. During private lessons, teachers work one-on-one with students to refine technique, form, and skills at counting to three over and over. Then, once honed, students confidently join 15–30 potential partners in a group lesson to learn the steps for the waltz and foxtrot, or saunter through the beguiling moves of the salsa. Group-practice parties host freeform socialization, where students show off their skills, watch others perform, or attempt to pull off the legendary dancing human pyramid.
World of Dance
For 25 years, World of Dance has taught ballroom dances including the cha-cha, waltz, salsa, and foxtrot to students whose skill levels range from recreational to competitive. The studio’s approach is simple yet effective. Students typically start with one-on-one or group lessons so they can learn techniques and basic body positions. They then apply what they’ve practiced during the studio’s regular dance parties, performing the waltz to demonstrate their graceful new moves or the tango to fulfill their latent desires to chew on roses.
