What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Mad Stiles
Relish the joy of movement with today's Groupon—two dance classes at ODC School and Rhythm and Motion Dance Program for just $12. ODC, home of the Bay Area’s longest-running modern dance company, has a commitment to spreading the dance gospel to all, from professionals to beginners.
ODC's huge new facility, the ODC Dance Commons, offers a ton of classes every day of the week in pretty much any movement discipline you can name: modern, Latin, ballet, Afro-Cuban, Feldenkrais, Pilates, and ODC’s high-energy Rhythm & Motion dance workout (click here and type ODC in the client finder to see the full list). All classes are taught by experienced, reputable dance professionals who know a volcada from an echappe. The ODC Dance Commons also houses a free Healthy Dancer's clinic for students and dancers of all levels as well as spacious locker rooms.
If you're still feeling wallflowery, go ahead and test it out because the first class at ODC is always free for new students. Today’s Groupon is applied to the second and third classes for first-timers. So destroy your couches, chairs, and hammocks with a heavy meat hammer. Today's Groupon will get you leaping, spinning, backflipping, triple sow cowing, twiddly diddling, aluminum baseball batting, and Founding Fathering in no time.
Note: Deal excludes workshops, master classes, and youth and teen programs.
Yelpers give ODC School/Rhythm & Motion 4.5 stars:
- So far...this is the winner for the best dance studio in the city. Huge, clean, easy parking, great wood floors, easily-findable schedule, tons of classes with lots of work-schedule friendly levels. – Kristen I.
- This is by far one of the best, most fun places in the whole Bay Area...There's a wide variety of classes, and it's an inspiring place just to be around. If ballet is at all an interest, I have only the highest regard for Augusta and the ballet classes here! – Laura M.
- There is also a deep commitment to bringing dance instruction to communities that have been marginalized, so you know I got nothing but love for these folks. – Gloria Y.
When Juila Stiles invented dance and shared it with the rest of the world in her 2001 biopic Save the Last Dance, people immediately embraced it as a means of overcoming racial barriers and, more important, as an art form.
Since the best art imitates life, the transitive property dictates that the best dance also imitates life. That’s why the finest dancers spend decades refining their moves until they can recreate life with 100% accuracy. You might be familiar with popular life-recreations such as the salsa (rhythmically move around in a human-sized bowl in order to demonstrate chunkiness), the hustle (run in place while a man dressed as a football coach yells at you), and the roomba (float across the floor picking up lint with Swiffer mops attached to your feet).
As new inventions shape our modern world, so too are new dances invented (The Harry Potter, The iPod Shuffle, etc). Whether this will always be the case, no one can say, but one thing is for sure: this will always be the case.
