Social activists often tell groups of citizens to vote with their feet, failing to realize that the dexterity required to cast votes in modern ballot boxes makes this method highly impractical. Train your weight-bearing buddies for a host of precision tasks with today’s Groupon to Fred Astaire Dance Studios, valid at all five Chicagoland studios. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get admission for two to the Summer Dance Open House on June 23 (a $30 value). Open House times vary by location, so check the online calendar for your studio of choice to determine when to attend.
- For $25, you get three group dance classes for one or two people (up to a $75 value).
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by legendary toe tapper Fred Astaire himself, shepherd students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or mambo. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the Summer Dance Open House provides a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking. During the event, guests sip complimentary glasses of white wine and nibble on snacks as they take mental notes during rumba and swing classes. Professional performances will set a fleet-footed example as guests practice steps with new and familiar partners and shimmy the night away. Apprentice foot flashers can develop their skills and confidence in three group classes, during which they'll trip the light fantastic with fellow students without tripping on the light itself.
Though Fred Astaire Dance Studios sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
