Dancing is a lot like juggling hammers—if you do it right you'll be the life of the party, but if you lose concentration you'll bruise your big toe. Keep your toes twinkling with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a one-month pass for a progressive series of dance classes and parties, valid for one style of dance, at Overstreet Dance Gallery in Littleton (up to a $30 value). Classes begin at 7 p.m., with dance parties following at 8 p.m. The classes are as follows:
- Thursdays: West Coast Swing
- Fridays: Lindy Hop
- Second and fourth Saturdays: Blues
- Mondays: Salsa
Led by experienced dance teachers with diverse backgrounds, Overstreet Dance Gallery’s partner-focused classes set skirts whirling and feet flying with progressive instruction for dancers of all levels. Students learn to twirl and shimmy to salsa rhythms or bust into blues moves without tattooing dance diagrams onto palms. Each class leads into the next, building on the previous week’s lesson to perfect basic steps and explore improvisational expressions. After each one-hour class draws to a close, the room transforms into a dance party where students can mingle and practice their dancing skills in a social setting.
Up to 200 pairs of dancin’ shoes can populate the 3,000-square-foot ballroom during classes as white mini lights softly illuminate the sprung wood floors, which support strutting tootsies to prevent them from running off to become roadies for Leif Garret.
