Social activists often tell groups of citizens to vote with their feet, failing to realize 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 $25, you get two private ballroom-dance lessons (a $138 value) and one practice party (a $30 value) at Fred Astaire Dance Studio (a $168 total value). This Groupon is valid at the following locations: Brookfield, downtown Milwaukee, Greenfield, Menomonee Falls, Mequon, Pewaukee, and Wales. All classes must be taken at the same studio.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary toe-tapper Fred Astaire himself, shepherd students of all ages and skill levels through dance lessons that span the style spectrum. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic ballroom and foxtrot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or mambo. Private lessons are given to one or two dancers at a time, with class times available Mondays–Saturdays. During rhythmic instruction, dancers will develop enough skills and confidence to join the cast of the dance-heavy Saving Private Ryan: The Musical. After the lessons, dancers can frolic with 20–50 other revelers during a practice party held mostly on Fridays from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Fred Astaire Dance Studio
In 1947, on New York City's Park Avenue, the first Fred Astaire Dance Studio—cofounded by the eponymous toe tapper himself—opened its doors to the public. More than six decades later, now boasting schools across North America, the dancing institution still adheres to the legendary Mr. Astaire's curriculum and instruction techniques.
Specializing in social ballroom and competitive dances, the schools' current consortium of professional instructors shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through dance lessons that span from classic ballroom and foxtrot romps to the modern steps of salsa, swing, or mambo. In addition to classes, the studio hosts social practice parties where up to 40 students hone newly acquired rug-cutting capabilities. As foot-charming music blares from the speakers, instructors work to cultivate a lively social setting where each guest can dance, mingle, and surgically correct their second left foot without fear of embarrassment.
