A ballerina's graceful balance is inspiring to aspiring dancers, captivating to houses of cards, and vexing to bulldozers razing cliffside condor habitats. Dive deeper into dancing benefits with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a one-year enthusiast membership at The National Museum of Dance (a $40 value) in Saratoga Springs.
Since its establishment in 1986, The National Museum of Dance has been charming guests through live performance, video installations, and archival displays. Aside from receiving free admission for the entire year, all card-carrying members get access to reduced admission to the museum's special events, 10% off all purchases in the gift shop, two guest passes, and issues of Foot Notes — the museum's semi-annual newsletter. Current exhibits include a tribute to Michael Jackson, a gallery of costumes from television's Dancing with the Stars, and a curiously creative display of postal stamps highlighting dance styles from around the world.
