Today's Groupon will help you erase memories of awkward prom slow dances while you master moves for major occasions, such as pending nuptials, cruise ship vacations, and Footloose-style community uprisings. For $69, you'll get four special 45-minute group ballroom (a $100 value) dance classes plus one 30-minute private lesson (a $45 value) at I Dance 2 Ballroom Dancesport Studio. I Dance 2 is open Monday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and during the day by appointment only. Call ahead or email to schedule classes, as your garage roof is not high enough for them to hear your shouting.
Co-owned by former professional Latin dance competitors and Triple Crown Latin Dancesport Champions Raza Begg and Ia Iashvili, I Dance 2 was responsible for teaching "Dancing with the Stars" alum Emmitt Smith. Whether you come with a dance partner or alone, you'll master fancy footwork and increase self-confidence, improve social skills, and release stresses through I Dance 2's four expert-guided lessons.
Once you finish your quartet of classes, show off your sleek, sensual stepping skills at a bonus evening practice party ($15 value), instead of staying at home getting freaked out on the couch and shooting paintballs at Shark Week.
I Dance 2 Ballroom Dancesport Studio
Since 1984, the studio’s experienced instructors have conveyed their ballroom skills to both beginner and seasoned students, including Dancing with the Stars’ Emmitt Smith. As the instructor team takes the reins during group and private classes, students learn the graceful moves and footwork for the cha cha, the waltz, salsa, swing, or other ballroom styles. The studio also offers a special wedding course that gets couples ready for their big days, enabling them to finally have a reason to be the center of attention at a wedding. Many of the studio’s dancers also train for national competitions, often under the leadership of studio director and championship dancer Raza Begg.
