Today's side deal teaches you how to shimmy across the globe: for $6, you get one Bhangra or West African dance lesson from Duniya Dance and Drum Company, a $12 value. Choose either the Bhangra class on Mondays from 6:30–8 p.m., or the West African class on Saturdays from 3–4:30 p.m. (starting on May 29), to infuse standard routines with frenetic energy. Lessons will take place at Dance Mission Theater.
Duniya's experienced instructors will break down each leap and turn into easy-to-understand moves that quickly become second nature. Incorporate the steps of worldly cultures into your current bag of tricks, forging a magnetic presence on the dance floor. While learning to cut rugs in newfangled ways, dancers will simultaneously work up a sweat. Dance is an often-overlooked exercise, even though it can provide the same caloric displacement as traditional workouts such as tire flipping and keg tossing.
