A dance class can teach anyone to move with grace through bee attacks, while getting served in front of a blind date, or during mega-prom. Teach your feet to conquer both wild and mild rhythms with today's Groupon: for $35, you get five dance or yoga classes of your choice at Sangha Space (a $75 value). The studio is located in Media, about 30 minutes from downtown Philadelphia (assuming an average speed of shimmy).
In Sanskrit, Sangha translates to "community"—an appropriate title for today's featured dance studio, which provides a supportive and nurturing group learning environment for dancers of all experience levels. Sangha Space's wide variety of movement-based classes and first-rate instructors ensure that each student discovers their best way to wiggle. After redeeming your Groupon for a class card that never expires, you will be able to attend any five non-package classes of your choice. Break a sweat in a West Coast swing class, and then spin-dry your brow as you twirl through the movements of ballroom basics. Or channel your tightly coiled inner passion into a tight embrace and dagger-sharp footwork in the Argentine tango class. Najia's belly-dance class, meanwhile, will teach you how to use your torso's storage unit to express emotions and narrate elaborate Major Dad fan fiction. Sangha Space's class schedule is full of fun classes such as adult ballet, yoga, and Zumba, providing numerous ways to get in shape that don’t require spooky gym machinery or the medicine show's dodgy concoction of vinegar, cabbage, and baby giggles.
Nothing garners respect like a businessman proposing a deal en pointe, nor can a PowerPoint presentation be ignored when underlined by a burst of jazz hands. Members of society versed in the art of dance don't just waltz through the Sangha Space studio with grace, they also flutter through life with the elegance and social grace of a butterfly presidential candidate. Beside making your own feet happy, you may also buy multiple Groupons as gifts to turn each session into a fancy fête with friends. Call ahead to schedule each class.
Three Yelpers give Sangha Space a solid 4.5 stars:
- Sangha Space offers a unique alternative to meeting new people, and learning something new in a social way. – adam h.
- I dance Argentine Tango and Ballroom…the teachers are first rate, the large beautiful dance hall with its wooden floor, arched windows and fireplace makes dancing a pure pleasure. – Deborah C.
It all began with a single dance. In 2005, the owners of Sangha Space held their first Tango Hop, a gathering of dancers meant to celebrate the movements of Latin America's most influential dances. That love of physical motion couldn't be contained in a single party; the movement gave birth to a fully functional dance and movement studio. Today, students still learn to tango, but classes also include lessons in swing and belly dancing. Sangha Space is also home to a dedicated yoga school, with instructors hosting a full schedule of classes suitable for beginners and experts alike.
