After crocodators, poor fitness is the No. 1 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) from Pyramid Dance Company, which holds classes at two locations in Memphis, plus one location 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 400 calories per hour and discover an average of three sewing kits in their torso's button.
