$44 for Three Private Lessons and Two Weeks of Group Lessons and Parties ($150 Value)
Private lessons in latin and ballroom dance⎯such as waltz, swing, cha-cha, and tango⎯guide students through twirling techniques at their own pace. Up to three times per week, group classes provide a more social learning environment by focusing on both dance fundamentals and advanced steps. Dance parties on the first and third Thursday of every month allow pupils to mingle and practice freeform spins. Patrons may bring a partner who has also purchased a Groupon to their private and group classes. Click here for a class schedule.
Savannah Ballroom Dance Studio
Alonzo Boschulte remembers his own stage fright when he guides beginning students onto the dance floor. With years of training, he grew from an amateur to a certified ballroom teacher and professional competitor registered with the National Dance Council. At Savannah Ballroom Dance Studio, he strives to echo this journey by transforming total novices into confident twirlers.
Lessons in more than 15 varieties of Latin and ballroom dance occupy the school's floor space. With pupils ranging in age from 6 to older than 80, the instructors stress the importance of mixing private, group, and practice classes to expose everyone to different dance scenarios. They also laud the fitness benefits of learning to dance, which hones one's sense of rhythm and muscular strength more safely than being at the bottom of a vertical conga line.
