Like defusing a bomb, a well-executed dance routine requires concentration, skill, and a nervous partner who questions your every move before unexpectedly jumping out of a window. Blow onlookers away with explosive dance moves thanks to today's Groupon: for $50, you get 10 classes at Giordano Dance School in Evanston (a $140 value).
For more than six decades, motion-filled bodies have tapped and tip-toed throughout a multitude of classes established by the American jazz-dance legend, Gus Giordano. Now lead by his daughter Amy Giordano and a stellar cast of gravity defying daredevils, fumbling feet are exposed to a wide array of skeleton grooving sessions. Learn time-honored tactics such as the Giordano jazz technique, which uses isolations, floor work, and movement combinations, or bar par terre, which solidifies prima ballerina placement by practicing pointe on the floor, instead of the traditional vortex of space. Fitness classes such as Pilates-yoga fusion and Zumba get loose limbs in full, synchronized swings, and a combination of ballet, yoga, and Pilates creates the Bryant floor ballet class for advanced-level extremity stretchers.
With no more than 25 balancing bodies in each class, enough space and personal attention are ensured for each dancing daisy to master the hardest of techniques, such as split center leaps and belly rubbing, head tapping fifth positions. Though Giordano's accommodates tykes as young as 2 years old, this Groupon is only valid for toe tappers 14 years old and up and are new to the school.
