Dancing can make a lasting, heart-warming impact on fellow humans, much like other forms of nonverbal communication, such as graduation speeches given in sign language and wedding proposals written in lighter fluid. Let body rhythm do the talking with today's Groupon: for $29, you get four 25-minute private dance lessons for one or two at Fred Astaire Tucson (a $188 value).
Armed with all of the grace and gumption of their nimble namesake, the instructors of Fred Astaire Tucson, members of a respected national franchise, reach out with private lessons in the basics of social swaying in both ballroom and Latin styles. During each 25-minute twirl-fest, an instructor focuses all attention on one student or one couple, effectively imparting the fundamentals of such styles as the fox trot, waltz, tango, Western swing, paso doble, and the Texas two-step, which involves lassoing a partner to facilitate high-speed twirls. The process of learning to dance is offered in a tiered program called the trophy system, designed to motivate professional stock-car drivers and ease students into full-blown boogie sessions.
Though Fred Astaire Tucson features introductory discounts online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available with the most private instruction.
