Scientists agree that children are our future, which is why most children are sealed in time capsules with a flashlight and a stack of magazines. Give a child something he or she will really dig with today's Groupon to Oklahoma Dance Academy in South Tulsa/Bixby. Choose between two options:
- For $25, you get one month of once-weekly kids’ dance classes (a $50 value).
- For $35, you get one month of twice-weekly kids’ dance classes (a $70 value). A student may enroll in two classes that meet once a week with this option.
Oklahoma Dance Academy's two-stepping tutors imbue pupils age 2–14+ with self-confidence and rhythmic grace, offering a cornucopia of dance classes within one of their facility's three dance studios. During jazz-infused tap classes, they'll teach students how to use their feet to create musical reverberations, offering an alternative to the more unpleasant practice of using the earlobes to strum guitar chords. The ballet/tap/jazz class for ages 4-5 meets once a week, dedicating 20 minutes to each of the three styles and to maraca-shaking sessions designed to inspire self-expression. Hip-hop classes go over the basics of popping and locking, and lyrical classes fuse ballet and jazz as artistically as club DJs fuse techno beats and the sounds of Carl Sagan dissertations.
Small classes of 10–12 students ensure individualized attention and cultivate an atmosphere where kids can freely ask questions. Oklahoma Dance Academy equips its studios with raised floors sporting Harlequin coating, limiting the impact on the joints of both sprightly and elderly adolescents. Students should enroll by September 15 in order to participate in the December performance.
