The careful execution of predesigned movements is the essence of dance, synchronized sledding, and over-intellectualized high fives. Pick up the tools of gesticular discipline with today's Groupon at Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance, located on the Upper East Side. Choose between the following, each of which includes the registration fee:
- For $79, you get 10 adult drop-in classes (a $175 value), valid only for Open Mixed and Pilates sessions.
- For $100, you get one session of kids' dance classes (a $275 value).
One of the oldest schools of dance in America, the Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance tutors graceful step-artists in the groundbreaking techniques of its legendary modern-dance choreographer namesake. Many of the center’s instructors worked with Graham herself and now impart contemporary toe-twinkling fundamentals during the Open Mixed classes. With the Pilates session, dancers can make bodies more flexible and controlled.
Children discover the joy of movement in the imagination-stimulating kids classes, taught during Saturday morning sessions grouped into two age ranges (6–9 and 10–12). After internalizing the basics of body coordination, pint-size pirouetters perform in studio showings to show off their new moves for friends, family, and NASA scientists desperately searching for rhythm in the universe. The school will hold make-up classes for Groupon holders eager to join the in-progress spring season; patient parents can wait for a later session if they wish.
