Dance gives humans a way to express their feelings via their bodies while their mouths are busy expressing fast-food orders. Keep your mouth from multitasking with today's Groupon: for $40, you get your choice of five adult dance classes or six youth dance classes at Fei Tian Academy of the Arts (a $97.50 value) in Showplace Square.
Rooted in the 5,000-year tradition of Chinese classical dance, Fei Tian's dance workshops are taught by veterans of the globetrotting dance company Shen Yun Performing Arts. The adult program sculpts and strengthens fatigued forms with rigorous and refreshing workouts that promote elegance, flexibility, and the good posture required to effectively mock stoic Buckingham Palace guards. The Body Shaping dance class gives nine-to-fivers a chance to unfold from their cubicles and engage a bevy of body parts in basic dance motions and exercises. Youth dance classes run the gamut from tumbling to Chinese folk and ethnic dance, allowing kids to expand their cultural understanding without taking a gap year between fifth and sixth grade to backpack across foreign lands.

- Fei Tian Academy in San Francisco is ideal for the training of aspiring dancers. Newly remodeled, the academy is located close to downtown San Francisco. Top-quality double barres, 8-foot-high mirrors, Harlequin sprung Marley floors, and skylights add to the extraordinary experience of learning classical Chinese dance. – Shanshan Wu, Epoch Times
