What You'll Get
Discover a better way to impress the crowds at swanky social functions than by singing Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde in its entirety. Today’s Groupon gets you two private, introductory, high-end ballroom dance lessons and an invitation to one Friday-night group dance party at Fred Astaire Dance Studio for $39 (a $113 value). Come alone or come with a partner for the same price as one-on-one training from highly experienced instructors instills the subtle elegance of waltzes, fox-trots, tangos, and more into your dancing gams.
Specializing in Latin and ballroom dancing, Fred Astaire Dance Studio is a national studio owned by luminaries such as New York's Yuriy and Alexandra Datsyk, 1993 Ukrainian Ballroom Dance Champions and Ukraine's representatives to the World Standard Championships. No matter how busy your schedule or how leaden your feet, Fred Astaire’s staff of professionally trained and certified instructors can tailor private sessions to match any dancer's skill level and specific goals. Private introductory lessons ($39 for one class) last 45 minutes and acquaint students with the studio's spacious dancing environment before teaching the basics of ballroom dance. Following the conclusion of your second private session, you'll be ready for a 90-minute, Friday-night dance party ($35 value), where you'll get to sip free drinks and munch on hors d'oeuvres while tripping the light fantastic with fellow students—without clumsily tripping on the light itself.
One San Diego Citysearcher and two Hilton Head Island Yahoo! Locals from across the coasts give Fred Astaire Dance Studio perfect five-star ratings. Two Yelpers in Chicago and an Insider Pager in New York give their studios a solid four:
- The instructors are all very helpful and are excited to help you learn to dance. – Janus, Yahoo! Local
- Even if you can't cross the street, they will work with you to master the steps and you will feel ready for any social occasion! – Davida L., Insider Pages
- We took a sample lesson where we learned the fox trot, rumba, and swing all in a half hour. I was skeptical as to how we'd learn three dances in a half hour, but amazingly, we were able to get the basic steps. – Kimberly F., Yelp
