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 $249, you get five 40-minute private lessons (up to a $530 value) and one 60-minute group practice session (up to a $20 value) at Fred Astaire Dance Studios in Sleepy Hollow (up to a $550 total value). This Groupon is valid for individuals and couples. The studio is open Tuesday–Saturday.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, 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, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking. Dancers can consult the schedule for available private lesson and practice-party slots.
Though Fred Astaire Dance Studios sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
