Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Transmit tidings with twinkling toes thanks to today’s Groupon: for $25, you get an introductory dance package at National Dance Clubs in Chattanooga (a $55 value).
The fleet-footed instructors of National Dance Clubs shepherd students of all skill levels through a variety of dance styles and techniques. Aspiring hip-swivelers can acquire the moves necessary to woo passersby into impromptu swing sessions with an introductory dance package, which includes two private 50-minute lessons to get the dance ball rhythmically rolling. Solo dancers—who will be paired with an instructor—and cha-chaing couples take to the 2,000-square-foot dance floor, learning the steps, dips, and secret handshakes of American, international, and social dance disciplines, including bolero, fox trot, rumba, waltz, and tango.
Once acclimated to dance's fast-moving, highly sequined world, muscle-movers maneuver through one 50-minute group class, where they'll strut their toe-tapping stuff and socialize with other dance-centric citizens. A Friday-night in-studio party gives trained twirlers another opportunity to cut a hardwood rug, accompanied by a soundtrack of live music in preparation for the dance denouement: an electrifying evening of shimmying, leaping, and waitusing at a local dance hall.
The modern facility and spacious, mirror-clad space present the perfect setting for finessing feet and training for the occasional mambo cage match. Be sure to wear nonstick shoes and check out the FAQ for more information.
