Dance has been used in many forms throughout the ages, from religious expression to ritual celebration to practical means of stomping a walnut open. Celebrate artistic stomping with today's Groupon: for $35, you get one private dance lesson and two group dance lessons at Louis & Company in Overland Park (a $105 value).
Six-time French National Champions Louis Bar and Laura Cantu, along with the rest of the professional staff at Louis & Company, bring their worldly knowledge to the ballroom to teach aspiring leg shakers the ins and outs of dancing techniques. With this deal, you'll team up one on one with a professional dancer for 40 minutes and receive private instruction on the dance style of your choice. The instructor will assess each dancer's needs and strengths, then dish out a number of carefully guided tips and techniques. Students can choose from the rhythmic romps of samba or jive, the sweeping graces of ballroom dances such as the waltz or fox trot, or the provocative choreography of the Argentine tango.
After the individual lesson, students join the ranks of fellow dancers for two group lessons, in which a fun and relaxed environment with like-minded dancers can inspire motivation, camaraderie, and individually created dances named after quantum physicists. Group lessons last 40 minutes, and the schedules vary from month to month.
Louis & Company Ballroom Dance Studio
Louis Bar and Laura Cantu have made a habit of competing on the world stage. As six-time French National champions and five-time World Finalists in Argentine tango and swing, they're more than capable of helming the educators at Louis & Company Ballroom Dance Studio. Along with the rest of the instructors, they teach three main dance styles and the various permutations contained within each. Latin classes cover the upbeat tempo and swinging hips of samba, cha-cha, and bolero, and the studio's ballroom classes celebrate slow and smooth elegance. Louis and Laura also lead protégés in the seductive duel that is tango, named for the tangerines that you typically hurl at dancers instead of applause.
