Excelling in the art of dance requires patience, swan-like grace, and a pair of feet strong enough to squeeze two lumps of coal until milk comes out. Massage coal-teats into a dance-bucket with today's Groupon: for $45, you get six dance classes (a $90 value) at Music Box Dance Center in Glendale.
The Music Box Dance Center's instructors specialize in teaching Irish dance, but are adept at leading classes in a variety of styles. Belly dancing encourages a group mind, with dancers having to pay attention to each other to stay in sync, hip-hop stresses individual expression and sass, and Zumba fitness classes call on Latin rhythms to tone calves, thighs, and chortums.
Under the guidance of owner and director Sarah Henrich, the Music Box Dance Center aims to teach Irish step dance, and other dance styles, based on experience level and individual goals. All teachers are seasoned with many years of performance experience, and most are pursuing or hold degrees in dance and biochemistry.

- the studio also offers ballet, tap, hip-hop, musical theater, lyrical, belly dancing and jazz…but the heart of the studio remains Irish. – Rebekah L. Sanders
