Dancing is a lot like juggling hammers—if you do it right you'll be the life of the party, but if you lose concentration you'll bruise your big toe. Keep your toes twinkling with today's Groupon: for $29, you get three private dance lessons or five group dance lessons at Londance in Laguna Niguel (up to a $150 value).
Londance's ballroom instructors, many of whom boast competitive-dance backgrounds, boost students' heel-kicking confidence through clear, fun choreography and partnering lessons. Dancers of all ages and skill levels glide through a schedule of American and international styles such as smooth waltzes and gentle foxtrots, or rhythmic jives, Latin rumbas, and the three-legged tango. During 45-minute private lessons, master movers customize lessons for each student to help feet nail the quickstep's brisk tempo or hips match the cha-cha's sultry syncopation. Couples tangle together for the duration of 45-minute group classes, and solo swingers twist with the teacher or a mop draped in a lifelike wig.
With two to three lively classes Monday–Friday, dancers can reap the cardio benefits and toned gams of non-boogey-based exercise. For members and students who promenade through the 7:45 p.m. preparatory group lesson, the studio transforms from a large, hollowed-out pumpkin into a free discotheque 8:30–10 p.m. each Friday.
For more than 25 years, seasoned performers have spread the joy of dance at LonDance. Fluent in the art of "social dancing", the twelve qualified instructors on staff are competing professionals who invigorate each class with fun and energy. Two or three classes are held each day, in styles as varied as ballroom, salsa, and swing, and can be used for weddings, events, or just to get in to shape. Studio parties enable dancers to show off their moves or scrutinize the mirrors to catch any ghosts brushing up on the waltz they originally learned in 1790s Vienna.
