Like defusing a bomb, a well-executed dance routine requires concentration, skill, and a nervous partner that questions your every move before unexpectedly jumping out of a window. Blow onlookers away with explosive dance moves with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get three 25-minute private ballroom-dance lessons and unlimited group classes and dance parties over two weeks for one person at Savannah Ballroom Dance Studio (a $150 value).
The experienced instructors at Savannah Ballroom Dance Studio wield a flurry of competition-honed moves, which they happily transmit to the soon-to-be-fancy feet of dancers of all skill levels. Eager students arrive to their three private lessons solo, or with two Groupons and a partner, where a dedicated dance professional breaks down the basics of movement, rhythm, and footwork to ensure that even the leftest of left feet can achieve the style and grace of Fred Astaire’s flock of pet swans. The 25-minute sessions pump brains full of rug-cutting moves while legs, arms, and cores reap the benefits of a fast, fun workout. To keep skills sharp and blood pumping, all students get two weeks of unlimited access to the studio’s free-spirited dance parties and group classes, where they can meet up with fellow students to try out new dance styles, partners, and charming affected foreign accents.

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.
