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: for $35, you get a dance-lesson package at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Sarasota and in Venice (up to a $236 total value). The package includes:
- Two private 40-minute dance lessons (a $178 value)
- One group lesson (up to a $29 value)
- One practice party (up to a $29 value)
The studio is open Monday through Friday and by private appointment on Saturday and Sunday.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire 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 their students’ techniques, form, and steam-powered dancing shoes. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of bolero, swing, or tango. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide an extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur fire-walking. Friday night practice parties then bring together fellow rug cutters for a night of move-brandishing and socializing. Dancers can consult the schedule for available lesson times and practice-party slots.
