Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's posttouchdown 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 (a $55 value). This Groupon can be redeemed individually or as a couple, and is good at the following three locations: Brentwood/Franklin, Belle Meade, and Murfreesboro.
The fleet-footed instructors of National Dance Clubs shepherd students of all skill levels through a variety of dance styles and techniques. 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, in which 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 electric sliding at local dance halls, including BB Kings, Limelight, and Wildhorse.
The modern facility’s spacious, mirror-clad space presents the perfect setting for finessing feet and training for mambo cage matches. Be sure to wear nonstick shoes, and check out the FAQ for more information.
