Knowing how to dance, like owning a handkerchief, being good at archery, and resisting the urge to draw mustaches on babies, is a mark of a true gentleman. Boogie your way to nimble-footed refinement with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one 45-minute private ballroom-dancing lesson for an individual or a couple at Pro Ballroom Dance on West Sahara Avenue (an $85 value).
Founded by professional competitive dance team Ashley Gable and Eddie Guerra, Pro Ballroom Dance whirls rookie rug cutters and deft dancers through private training, 25 different classes, and competitive ballroom preparation in a variety of dance styles, including tango, Viennese waltz, bolero, merengue, hustle, and other stately steps. No matter the style of foot stomping, each 45-minute private lesson focuses on developing individual posture, musicality, timing, and rhythm. A lesson in salsa helps unlock the turntable in your hips, blending flashy turns, twists, and spins into a whirling storm of devastating desire, and fleet-footed fox trotters will gain excellent endurance training for outrunning invitations to participate in the electric slide. Pro Ballroom's talented teachers also instruct steps for impending nuptials and social soirees.
Pro Ballroom Dance recommends that all dancers wear comfortable clothes that allow them to twirl and strut freely. Men should wear leather-soled shoes, which will help their spins stay suave, and women should dress up their dance appendages in 3-inch or shorter high heels with straps to keep feet from lifting off during gravity-reducing superspins.
