With today's Groupon, $49 gets you a six-class Intro to Dance series at Joy of Motion Dance Center. You choose the genre: hip hop, modern dance, jazz, breakdancing, ballet, dance technique, or monster mashing. Each class meets for an hour once a week. You will have a choice to begin your series either the week of September 14 or the week of October 24th. Click here and enter Joy of Motion Dance Center in the search bar to see the schedule and descriptions of classes being offered.
Joy of Motion's skilled instructors have taught and performed all over the world, often as dancers. Your teacher will help you stretch to your physical and artistic limits in appreciating and performing the style of dance you choose.
Reap the benefits of sticking with one genre and one instructor for the full six weeks. Each session builds on the week before, and by the end of the six weeks, you'll walk away with new dance knowledge that may catapult you into dance superstardom alongside Fred Astaire, Jennifer Lopez, and Betsy Ross.
Intro to Dance sessions are held at all four of Joy of Motion Dance Center's DC-area locations: Atlas, Bethesda, Dupont Circle, and Friendship Heights. Make sure you check the location, dates, and weekly class times available for each genre before you sign up.
Snag this Groupon and the possibilities are endless: learn to cat walk in the jazz series, master your pirouette in ballet, or convince a friend to take the hip-hop class with you and join the 2010 production of Fiddler on the Roof: This Time It's For Real.
