To spice up a dance routine, professionals will wear bedazzling outfits or substitute their partner for a burlap sack filled with fireworks attached to a timer. Go for the pros with today's Groupon: for $34, you get eight dance classes at Room to Dance in Riverside (a $70 value).
At Room to Dance, an adults-only studio, talented boogie instructors drill adults of all prancing abilities in a slew of classic techniques or heart-pumping routines. After students try out a complimentary class, they can enlist in a mob of styles, such as jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, bollywood, and interpretive patty-cake. Big-band sounds reverberate through frames during swing classes, and sultry beats seduce eager feet during Argentine-tango lessons. High-energy Zumba, which blends a mélange of upbeat dance styles, pump up tickers quicker than running with the bulls atop Justin Bieber's sturdy shoulders. Students can peruse the online schedule for class dates and times.
Room to Dance & World to Dance
Some dance studios focus on kids' classes, with only scant offerings for adults. But at Room to Dance, an adults-only dance studio, grownups can rediscover a love of movement alongside others who've crossed the bridge into adulthood. Owners April MacLean and Julie Simon and their team of instructors draw on years of professional dance experience to teach a diverse range of classes, from Afro-samba to ballet and rueda de casino to hula.
