Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Transmit tidings with twinkling toes thanks to today’s Groupon: for $15, you get five dance classes of your choice at SandysDance Center (a $35 value).
SandysDance Center schools light-tripping lower limbs in a variety of torso-twisting styles ranging from ballroom and country western to Latin and belly dancing. While classes cater to all skill levels, the studio specializes in breaking in beginning bunny hoppers and dancers hexed with two left feet or equilibrium-affecting head tentacles. East coast swing is a classic choice for rug-cutting rookies, teaching the basic swing steps and movements popularized in the 1940s, while West coast swing imparts a smoother, more sensual style set to contemporary music. Salsa, a spicy fusion of Cuban and African hip cuisine, spins and dips dancers into saucy club material and provides an opportunity for the salsa-hardened to improvise and embellish. Check out the class schedule, where you can opt to spend your five classes on one signature strutting style, or go eclectic and put your legs in more than one basket by trying your toes at several techniques.
The Daily You recommends SandysDance Center as a fun Friday night activity.
The instructors at SandysDance Center don't care if you have two left feet or if you're stuck inside a clunky cyborg exoskeleton. They're proud of their extensive experience with beginners and confident that they can get anyone moving gracefully across the dance floor. Seeing as how they cater to dancers of all ages and skill levels, the instructors prefer a casual, informal style of teaching that focuses on the fun stuff. Classes are generally held on weekdays and range in style from salsa to swing.
