Moving one’s body to the rhythm of music is a natural human instinct, just like running toward the sound of lightning. Move with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a beginner’s dance lesson package at Fred Astaire Ballroom Dance Studio in West Springfield (a $100 value). The package is valid for up to two people and includes:
- 30-minute private lesson
- 90-minute public dance practice party
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Ballroom Dance Studio, which was cofounded by legendary toe-tapper Fred Astaire himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students’ techniques and form. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of swing or samba. Additionally, salsa instruction may help unlock the turntable in your hips, blending flashy turns, twists, and spins into a whirling storm of devastating desire. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and water-free synchronized swimming. Couples only need one Groupon, as participants can bring a partner or arrive solo and partner up with the instructor.
Though Fred Astaire Dance Studios sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
