Dance isn’t the only form of nonverbal communication, but smoke signals tend to set off sprinkler systems and emoticons require constant feeding. Discover the art of kinetic conversation with today's Groupon to the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center on West 60th Street. Choose between the following open dance class options:
- For $13, you get one beginner aerial dance class (a $25 value).
- For $8, you get one beginner theater-dance, ballet, or jazz-dance class (a $15 value).
A comprehensive dance and movement facility, Manhattan Movement & Arts Center provides movers and shakers of all sorts a space for learning, rehearsing, and performing. MMAC classes are taught by renowned dance educators and dancing queens in obstruction-free studios, which are equipped with sprung floors and kept fastidiously free of rhythmically challenged Godzillas who “borrow” classmates’ leg warmers and return them all stretched out.
The one-hour aerial beginner class develops strength, coordination, and flexibility as students learn to fly and dance on fabric in an encouraging environment. Bust a Broadway-style move in a theater-dance class, or foster foot jubilance in an advanced/beginner jazz class, which covers territory such as turning technique and is designed to be challenging but accessible to all levels. Open teen beginner ballet classes (open for adults too) build students' rhythm, coordination, and ballet vocabulary, enabling more dynamic conversations with tutu’d coworkers. Check the most up-to-date schedule before signing up for any class.
