Finicky feet are much more likely to take orders from legs if they are expressed rhythmically and with pointed fibulae. Bring a sense of refinement to sub-knee submission with today’s Groupon: for $34, you get four weeks of ballroom and Latin dance classes at Elite Dance Studio (a $68.25 value). Classes are held on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and Mondays from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Additional options may become available according to demand.
While studio owners and eight-time Canadian ballroom-dance champions Delphine Romaire and Dominic Lacroix instruct more advanced levels, their staff of champion instructors teaches the tender-footed to trip the light fantastic at Elite Dance Studio. Four weeks of 90-minute beginner classes get hips shaking and calories burning in tandem with the floor. Hone limb acuity with basic steps such as the cha-cha, quickstep, jive, and foxtrot, or let waists eschew inertia with whirling waltzes and speedy sambas. No previous dance experience is necessary, so neophytes need not worry about classmates judging them after they attempt to hold their partners by the Freudian super-ego.
Elite's newly renovated studio balances two dance floors with full-length mirrors, in which dancers can practice looks of faux humility after executing a perfect kick-ball-change. A state-of-the-art music system and extensive melody library are accessible to students for practice or to simply enjoy as a soundtrack to their own feet's coming-of-age story.
