With its sensuous twists and undulating curves, belly dancing can express a wide variety of emotions, from "Look at my belly!" to "See what I just did with my belly?" Learn to shimmy what you're thinking with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a six-week beginner belly-dancing class (a $64 value) from Pyramid Dance Company, which holds classes at two locations in Memphis as well as at locations in Cordova and Southaven, Mississippi. Classes are held once a week, but times may vary at each location; call ahead to confirm the schedule.
For more than 20 years, Pyramid Dance Company has piqued the public's interest in the authentic forms of belly dance through lively classes and eye-dazzling performances. Sadiia, the company's lead member, brings an extensive knowledge of the history of belly dance to her teaching practice, as well as experiences, stories, and tips collected during worldwide travels. In the beginner class, Sadiia teaches a complete dance routine to students during six weekly one-hour sessions. While learning basic techniques, most students stretch, tone, and shimmy away about 500 calories per hour and discover an average of three sewing kits in their torso's button. Since today's Groupon does not expire until 6/20/12, it makes a great holiday gift for dance enthusiasts.
