Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Transmit tidings with twinkling toes with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get five one-hour drop-in dance classes for students aged 16 and older at Harbour Dance Centre (up to a $75 value).
At Harbour Dance Centre, aspiring hoofers trip the light fantastic under the tutelage of a world-renowned faculty that helped make the facility the Best Dance Studio in Vancouver in 2010, according to the readers of Georgia Straight. The studio's schedule abounds with more than 95 drop-in classes, separated into seven different levels so no neophytes need feel uncomfortable or overbust their moves. Students can strike picturesque poses in ballet, throw down serve-worthy hip-hop moves, and express their inner happiness and hunger pangs via modern and contemporary movements. Untraditional dance styles such as funky street jazz and sultry burlesque belly dancing provide a fun retreat from the common kick-ball-change, and yoga classes keep dancing bodies in tip-top form.
