Like playing chess, dancing requires you to constantly plan your next move and avoid kicking your partner in the head. Transform into a dancing queen, king, or bishop with today’s Groupon: for $35 you get one month of dance classes that meet two hours each week at Innovative Dance Inc. in Arlington (a $105 value). Groupon students also get the initiation fee waived.
Innovative Dance Inc.'s experienced troupe guides protégés as young as 2 1/2 through a variety of dance styles in a family-focused atmosphere. Contemporary performers practice free-form movements, and disciplined ballerinas leap through the air and tiptoe across the stage, perfecting their ability to safely sneak up on surly skunks. Beats reverberate throughout the studio as cloggers, hip-hoppers, and tap dancers create a shuffling symphony as their heels click swiftly across the studio. Kids can roll and flip with tumbling lessons or twist and shake to abstractly express their disdain for the current economic system in the Creative Movements for Children class.
After cultivating their craft, students can showcase their talents by performing in front of a recital audience, joining a competition team (a $25 fee not covered by this Groupon), or taking up wedding crashing.
