To make dance routines flashier, professionals often wear sequined outfits or burlap sacks filled with fireworks. Light up the dance floor with this Groupon.
- $69 for two private lessons, five beginner group dance classes, and one social dance party for an individual or a couple (a $410 value)
After selecting from a curriculum of ballroom, Latin and Swing styles that includes foxtrot, cha cha, rumba, waltz, tango, triple swing and other dances, students are organized by skill level into beginner I, beginner II, intermediate, or advanced groups. No dance partner is necessary, but students might meet a few new ones as they show off their new steps during themed social parties.
"No matter what you do with your dancing always be sure of one thing," writes Jersey Dance owner Jennifer in her dance blog. "The process of learning to dance should be the most enjoyable part." The longtime competitive dancer lives and teaches by that principle, as does her team of instructors. Their nonjudgmental vibe pervades the studio, creating a space where soonlyweds can get help choreographing their wedding dance from an encouraging professional. Likewise, groups of beginners can experience the thrill of learning the steps they see on dance-competition shows while skipping the part where they're given scores and spanked by the ghost of Fred Astaire. One-on-one sessions, meanwhile, offer private pointers on the complexities of the quickstep, the dagger-sharp footwork of Argentine tango, or enough floor space to safely attempt West Coast swing at its jitterbuggiest. Whatever is being taught that week, Jennifer and Co. tailor in-studio socials that give dancers a party setting to show off everything they've learned.
