What You'll Get
Before dance was identified as an effective workout routine, it was believed to be useful only for stamping down dirt floors in barns and avoiding falling hail. Give new meaning to your feet’s lives with today’s Groupon to Santa Cruz Dance Company. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get five Zumba classes (a $55 value).
- For $45, you get 10 Zumba classes (a $99 value).
Instructor and Santa Cruz Dance Company owner Joy Smith and her talented staff lead the charged-up charge in the Latin-fusion dance classes that Zumba fans call their up-tempo home. Each week, 15 classes shimmy into the saucy schedule, where one-hour sessions welcome students of all ages, skill levels, genders, and hat sizes. Cut a rug in the spacious, mirror-lined studio, where Latin music blasts calories off bodies and onto far-off cupcakes with a fun, energizing medley of high-octane dance routines. Hip-Hop & Zumba combo classes introduce the two toe-tapping species to each other in a perfectly blended elixir of dynamic, muscle-moving routines. The pass must be used within eight weeks of the first class, after which it will transform into a toned, coordinated butterfly.

About Santa Cruz Dance Company
As she twinkle-toed her way across stages in countries from France to Brazil to Japan, internationally lauded dance teacher and choreographer Joy Smith's moves have enraptured audiences in music videos, TV shows, and music tours. At her studio, Santa Cruz Dance Company, she strives to impart a similar passion for dance in students of all ages and abilities. She fosters an encouraging environment in which they can learn the steps and lay the foundations for a lifetime of fitness. Along with a team of instructors, she teaches budding performers the fundamental techniques of ballet, contemporary jazz, acrobatics, and musical theater. The instructors incorporate these techniques into choreographed dance pieces and help students learn to express themselves through the movements—a skill they can use to show their feelings about their favorite roller coaster being put to sleep.
She also calls on her years of dance experience to help whip adults into shape during Zumba classes, an effort which has earned her Good Times' award for Best Aerobic Instructor. As a master trainer, she fires up fitness dance parties with her easy-to-follow blend of aerobics and Latin dance. She takes her training a step further by certifying and licensing Zumba trainers throughout Northern California as a Zumba Education Specialist.
