Back when dancing was the only way to communicate, people expressed happiness with an energetic waltz, sadness with a somber ballet, and taco orders with the salsa. Learn to communicate the old-fashioned way with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get one month of children's dance classes, plus a waived registration fee at Hollywood Vibe Dance Studios in Burbank (a $60 value). New sessions begin in August.
At Hollywood Vibe, a staff of experienced dance instructors schools children in the fundamentals of light-tripping and toe-tapping within a positive and fun learning environment. Aspiring Astaires age 2 to teen will receive one month of weekly, one-hour dance classes offered in a variety of formats, ranging from tot-sized tap to beginner ballet and kindergarten krumping. Toddlers can toddle on into the mommy/daddy and me class (ages 2–3) where they will be introduced to the concept of dance and begin to develop important motor skills crucial to cultivating coordination. The pre-school dance class (ages 3–6) takes slightly older young’uns on a euphoric rhythm spree, teaching them dancing basics and how to count music with fun dances that encourage self-expression and provide a cognitive foundation for success in school subjects such as reading, writing, and rug-cutting. Offering jazz, tap, ballet, and hip-hop classes (ages 7+), Hollywood Vibe likewise bestows teens and tweens with the skills to perform leaps, turns, and combinations, preparing them for future forays into the world of dance.
Nothing garners respect like a businessman proposing a deal en pointe, nor can a PowerPoint presentation be ignored when underlined by a burst of jazz hands. Children versed in the art of dance don't just waltz through Hollywood Vibe's studio with grace, they also flutter through life with the elegance and social grace of a butterfly presidential candidate.
