After crocodators, poor fitness is the number one cause of the night-scaries. Turn the nightmare where you end up bare-bellied in biology class into a dream of goddess-like energy with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a six-week beginner belly dancing class (a $64 value) at Pyramid Dance Company, with three convenient locations in East Memphis, Cordova, and Southaven, Mississippi. For more than twenty 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 founding 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 400 calories per hour and discover an average of three sewing kits in their torso's button.
