A married couple’s first dance as man and wife should be refined and flawless, much like an engagement diamond or a Blu-ray copy of Porky’s. Prepare to dazzle with today’s Groupon to Foster’s Champion Ballroom in Minneapolis. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get four group classes and one private lesson (a $140 value).
- For $27, you and a partner get four group classes and one private lesson (a $185 value).
With classes capped at 14 students, Foster’s expert instructors are able to provide individual attention in an encouraging group setting. Dancers can twirl to their own tune by selecting from an array of dance styles that populate a rotating schedule, with sessions ranging from the classic, gliding waltz to the hip-heavy rumba. To accompany group instruction, dancers also receive 30 minutes of private schooling sure to enhance their ability to salsa down a moving escalator. Attend the classes with a companion to prepare to impress at the next formal party you crash.
Champion Ballroom is the brainchild of twinkly-toed owners Robert and Jennifer Foster, who, over their illustrious 25-year career, have garnered three U.S. ballroom dance titles and enraptured audiences internationally on NBC, ESPN, and PBS. Accompanied by their daughter Caitlin, the duo cycles through private and group dance lessons in ballroom, Latin, salsa, swing, and tango techniques for both competitive and casual events. The studio’s free consultations work to ascertain students’ goals while introducing them to the instructors’ individual teaching styles, which, unlike most dance studios, do not incorporate weirdly aggressive games of Twister. Special guests often lead one-night-only workshops atop Champion’s 40'x80' dance floor, and live performances from local bands allow hoofers to put new steps to the test without having to provoke local dance crews into impromptu competitions.
