Before radio, music was broadcast via Morse code, which turned everything into a treble-heavy dance music punctuated by demands to STOP. Limber up for more-graceful dance moves with today’s Groupon: for $42, you get three weeks of dance classes two times a week ($42 for three weeks per class, plus a $20 registration fee, a total value of $104), running from July 11 to July 29 at Moves Dance Studio in North Aurora. Hour-long classes are available Monday–Thursday and meet twice per week.
Moves Dance Studio hosts a jam-packed schedule of energetic, challenging dance classes led by talented faculty members. Dancers select two weekly sessions and can get down with beginning or intermediate hip hop classes for ages 10 and up, focusing on east- and west-coast moves with choreography as sharp and precise as a perfectionist laser beam. Contemporary and lyrical dancers find expression in a variety of movement progressions and exhilarating performance dynamics; Pilates introduces students to the strength of their own cores and the sight of their own lower backs. Other classes include tap and a multitude of lessons for 4–6 year olds, including Broadway Babies, which teaches the fundamentals of ballet, tap, and tumbling.
