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 $25, you get four flamenco dance classes (a $60 value) and registration (a $25 value) at FlamencoTalk (a $85 total value).
Students at FlamencoTalk stomp to the beat of traditional flamenco steps to experience the elegant art of the Andalusia region of Spain. Novices learn basic skills in laid-back classes on Monday and Wednesday nights led by expert instructor and performer Mariya Tarakanova. Students strap on chunky heels and choreograph their first baby steps through a Tangos y Rumbas session that encourages exploration of the multifaceted movement, using loose choreography to learn improvisation in the form. Beginner Castanets teaches simple exercises that meld steps with tiny percussion instruments invented to rehabilitate puppeteers unable to communicate without a sock on their hand. The Props class and Technique and Repertory session endow graduate-level secrets to veteran steppers. Attendees don't need a partner, making classes an opportune time to meet their future Fred Astaire or MC Skat Kat.
