What You'll Get


A dance class can teach anyone to move with grace through bee attacks, while getting served in front of a blind date, or during mega-prom. Prepare yourself for the inevitable with today's Groupon: for $43, you get to enroll in a six-week dance session at Joy of Motion Dance Center (a $99 value). Different sessions are offered at different locations—Friendship Heights, Atlas, or Bethesda, Maryland. You must begin your first class within three months, and this deal is valid for the fall dance sessions only.

Choose from 12 introductory and social dance sessions:

  • Intro to Dance Technique
  • Intro to Ballet
  • Intro to Modern
  • Intro to Jazz
  • Intro to Hip Hop
  • Intro to Breakdancing
  • Intro to Tap
  • Social Dance - Intro to Salsa
  • Social Dance - Intro to Latin Ballroom
  • Social Dance - Intro to Social Ballroom
  • Social Dance - Intro to Argentine Tango
  • Social Dance - Intro to Hand Dancing

Joy of Motion Dance Center’s introductory sessions will give your toes a taste of the flavor cocktail that is dance—teaching you to tap your feet, shuffle your steps, and perform brief head spins in an impressively coordinated fashion. Check out the fall schedule for an overview of each class. For secret agents looking to brush up on footwork before attempting to finagle their way through the ambassador’s gala, Joy of Motion Dance Center's introductory social dance sessions bring rhythm, grace, and choreography, while also reshaping monthly party schedules into dance-shaped rectangos. Study the schedule and course descriptions to select the perfect partnered promenade.

Joy of Motion Dance Center'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. Each hour-long 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. Select a course and the possibilities are endless: learn to cat walk in the jazz series, master your shimmy in salsa, or convince a friend to take the hip-hop class with you and join the 2011 production of Fiddler on the Roof: This Time It's For Real.
