A dance class can teach anyone to move with grace through bee attacks, while getting served in front of a blind date, or during mega-prom. Prep for the impending bee invasion with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one single or couple private dance lesson ($50), four group classes (up to $40), and entry to a month's worth of unlimited dance parties (up to $40) at Old Town Ballroom (up to a $130 total value), located downtown.
During your 30-minute private lesson, an Old Town Ballroom professional will teach you (or you and a pal) the basics of whatever dance you wish. Learn the tango, Lindy hop, belly dance, bolero, or the Brian Dennehy. Then, continue training or shimmy out a new style during nightly group lessons; a swing session covers the seductive sway of the rumba and the gravity-defying jitterbug. Improved leg pivoters swagger and show off slick moves during a month's worth of themed dance parties. Recent themes include beach culture, Disney characters, and choreography inspired by the 1979 Phoenix Suns.
Old Town Ballroom's intimate, hardwood dance space is big enough to bust a move, but not so big that your instructor will miss the first time you pull off the fabled Moonwalk. All of the Old Town Ballroom instructors have strong backgrounds and a long history dancing in the delicate shadow of the moon. Each friendly dance master will gladly answer any dance-pertinent questions, such as "Did that leg kick just open a time vortex?"
This Groupon is good for new students only, and a reservation is required.
Old Town Ballroom
Although the instructors at Old Town Ballroom are happy to teach traditional waltzes and seductive tangos to couples, they also specialize in more unconventional styles. Belly-dance imparts the fine art of hip undulation and of strapping tap shoes to one’s stomach, and Korean hip-hop fuses American b-boying with martial-arts-inspired choreography. Group and private lessons are available, allowing guests to pick their desired level of attention from the instructor. The staff also rents out its airy 3,000-square-foot space for parties. Renovated in 2011, the performance space is anchored by light wood floors and flanked by a lounge area. Up to 200 people can celebrate with a night of dancing, billiards, or converting leotards into giant slingshots.
