Dance was a basic survival skill for early humans, who had to jitterbug off giant mosquitoes and quickstep out from underneath stampy mastodons. Pay homage to the risks taken by the earliest dancers with today's Groupon: for $39, you get two private dance lessons in a ballroom style of your choice (a $120 value) at Signature Ballroom in Mission. This Groupon is valid for either an individual or a couple.
At Signature Ballroom, experienced dancers Abby Vogels and Matt Schissler introduce budding boogie artists to their choice of ballroom-dance style. Lessons last for 55 minutes and offer journeys into the wild worlds of tango, foxtrot, cha-cha, samba, and more, encouraging novices to transcend hokey-pokeys. Guests can learn to quickstep with Neo-like dodges and nimble toe magic. Or discover the difference between East Coast Swing and West Coast Swing, which mostly has to do with which ocean you fall into after swan diving off a tire swing. Vogels and Schissler focus on creating strong connections between dance partners, training their students to move together with the finesse of an electric mixer's beaters. Dancers that use this Groupon will also be offered a 20% discount on two additional classes.
Schissler has been an avid dancer since he began learning hip-hop at 15, and Vogels has been mastering moves since she started ballet at age 3. Unlike ordering a hot dog without the mustard, learning to dance at Signature Ballroom doesn't require you to sign any contracts. Classes are usually scheduled between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. on weekdays (alternate arrangements are possible). Call to set up your appointment.

Although Signature Ballroom's instructors Abby Vogels and Matt Schissler introduce their students to a number of ballroom styles–from tango to foxtrot to samba–they also focus on fitness. During private lessons, they not only teach their charges the fancy footwork, but how to use the steps as a means of exercising and losing weight in a fun and creative way, much like completing a coloring book while running on a treadmill. Guests can also work out and build connections between one another with more modern techniques such as East and West Coast swing.
Already existing connections are further strengthened during wedding couples' dances. After teaching prenuptial footwork to just the bride and groom or the entire wedding party, the instructors provide a video of the choreography so their pupils can practice at home in preparation for the big day.
