What You'll Get

Similar to defusing a bomb, a well-executed dance routine requires concentration, skill, and a nervous partner that questions your every move before unexpectedly jumping out of a window. Blow onlookers away with explosive dance moves thanks to today’s Groupon: for $10, you get six beginner group classes at Hot Club of Durham (a $75 value). You must use your Groupon in six consecutive weeks.

At Hot Club of Durham, fledgling Fred Astaires can join a horde of hopped-up hepcats and hone the Charleston, East Coast, Lindy Hop, or the Balboa, a Californian creation derived from the Charleston. In beginner Charleston, you'll learn the dance that spawned all swing dances. Start with 1920s style, an upbeat and easy-to-learn routine, before moving onto the 1930s style, which combines the kicks and graceful elbow swirls of Hollywood's Golden Age with the speed and force of a Dust Bowl mote. Beginner East Coast teaches the best-known swing-dance style in single- and triple-step variations. Beginner Lindy Hop is recommended for students who have taken Charleston and East Coast classes, as its trademark swing-out and lindy-circle moves require the deft coordination of a feral turducken.

Held in the Trotter Building in Durham's Central Park District, Hot Club offers a welcoming learning environment run by friendly, experienced instructors, and a portion of the facility's proceeds benefit local charities, including SEEDS, Durham Literacy Center, and Durham Food Bank. A variety of class times and a convenient online calendar accommodate students shuttling back and forth between the yarn store and meetings of Knitters Anonymous. Stop by Thursday nights from 9 p.m. to midnight for a swing-dance party with a live DJ ($7, not included in this Groupon).
