Dancing is the second-best way to let the body do the talking, just short of being born with a secondary bellybutton mouth. Elegantly express yourself with today's Groupon: for $35, you get two months of weekly dance classes at East County Performing Arts Center, with locations in Brentwood and Antioch (a $120 value).
East County Performing Arts Center's university-trained educators mentor students ages 2 and up on the finer points of ballet, hip-hop, jazz, and other styles. Two- and 3-year-olds can combat the antidancing establishment during a 45-minute Boogie Babies class, combining elements of tap, ballet, tumbling, and play. Parents or visiting dignitaries can wave to young ones through either location's viewing window, putting anxieties at ease while muffling the sounds of spectator bullhorns. Older toe tappers can explore a variety of styles, including hip-hop, contemporary, or jazz, in which students will master choreography and traverse the floor through movement progressions. Groupon holders can experience the thrill of synchronized motion without trying to keep up with a flock of migrating birds during a Dance for Cheer class, which incorporates jazz, hip-hop, and poms.
Both East County Performing Arts Center locations have multiple studios and hold classes once per week, entitling Groupon wielders to eight sessions total. Certain classes require specific attire, footwear, or properly contained hair. Consult the class descriptions for detailed information and a helpful illustration of how to write summaries.
