Riverside Dance Center's teachers have helped fledgling dancers shimmy with precision for nearly 30 years. The studio's owner leads each adult class through a series of steps, emphasizing technique as students explore clicks, stomps, and shuffles. Kids strut to beats and rhymes in Hip-Hop I and II, learning how to ignite a rap battle in case of emergency. Today's Groupon may also be used for Stretch & Tone exercise classes or a Zumba workshop, which shows fitness seekers dance-inspired moves that burn calories when paired with Latin-style rhythms.
Helmed by Jo-Ann Donnelly, a certified dance instructor with a degree in elementary education, Riverside Dance Center helps learners take pride in their progress with a steady stream of encouragement. A spacious studio lined with mirrors and ballet barres invites visitors to cut a rug or shear a magic carpet on the floating hardwood floor.
