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 new students two private 40-minute dance lessons, two 60-minute group classes, and one group dance party at Fred Astaire Portland Dance Studio for $12 (a $220 value). Come for one-on-one training from highly experienced instructors, or bring a partner and instill the subtle elegance of waltzes, fox trots, tangos, and more into your dancing gams. Your Groupon is valid at the 21st Avenue location only.
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 last 40 minutes and acquaint students with the studio's spacious dancing environment before teaching the basics of ballroom dance. Following the conclusion of your first private session, you'll be ready for two group classes and one group dance party, in which you'll trip the light fantastic with fellow students—without clumsily tripping on the light itself. By the end of your classes and lessons, you'll feel calm and serene as you whirl and waltz through the group dance party, where everyone gets to have fun showing off their new skills. Make your feet happy enough to forget that your hands broke up with them via text message with today's Groupon to Fred Astaire Dance Studio.

About Fred Astaire Dance Studio
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds adults 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, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the cha-cha. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of tango, swing, or rumba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice provides a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
