Like defusing a bomb, a well-executed dance routine requires concentration, skill, and a nervous partner that questions your every move before unexpectedly jumping out of a window. Blow onlookers away with explosive dance moves thanks to today’s Groupon. For $25, you get five beginner dance classes at Jive Nation Toronto, located in Lithuanian Hall on Bloor Street West. Jive Nation's spacious, open studio sets the stage for novice dancers to learn modern jive along with 15 to 20 other fun-loving foot shakers. Experienced instructors conduct classes on Wednesdays at 7:45 p.m. and graciously guide men, women, and couples through upbeat moves performed to the rhythms of top 40 hits and hummingbird heartbeats.
Jive Nation Toronto
Every Thursday, Jive Nation Toronto's students and instructors step into the studio to hone their dance abilities in a social setting. Fresh pop tunes fill the air as instructors guide students through a fusion of modern-jive, salsa-inspired, and swing moves. From this combination, beginners can absorb three–four common steps after their first lessons without having prior dance experience or recollections from past lives as Astaires. Partners are not required for lessons, as the instructors pair students together, which allows them to make new friends while learning how to become confident dancers.
