Without dance, people could only hum along to the "Macarena," and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Let movements speak with today’s Groupon: for $21, you get one month of once-a-week hip-hop classes at Mary Lee's School of Dance (a $42.50 value).
Mary Lee's encouraging pop-and-lock experts instill the passion of rhythm and dance in students ages 5 to adult through weekly hip-hop classes. Each 45-minute lesson begins with warm-up exercises that stretch out limbs to prevent participants from pulling muscles. Dancing protégés then take to the floor and glean tips on performing modern hip-hop maneuvers such as the glide, the harlem shake, and the properly grounded electric slide. Students must come appropriately dressed in clean sneakers—no street shoes—and comfortable dance clothes devoid of zippers and buckles. Class times vary depending on the dancer's age, so check Mary Lee's class schedule to find the most convenient class.
