Excelling in the art of dance requires patience, swanlike grace, and a pair of feet strong enough to squeeze two lumps of coal until milk comes out. Massage coal teats into a dance bucket with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two drop-in classes at Social Dance Studio (a $30 value) on Twenty-Third Avenue.
The sage-like instructors at Social Dance Studio transform two-step tyros into graceful swans with a jellybean jar of dance classes, ranging from Argentine tango and salsa to hip-hop. Strut your stuff in a beginners' bachata class, a hip-popping Dominican dance characterized by a four-step beat, allowing students to master the basic footwork and traveling turns without resorting to excessively detailed blueprints. Hip-hop-salsa fusion pours hot sauce on bland dance routines with body rolls, chest pops, and novel choreography. Become a ball-belle via Social Dance Studio’s American-style ballroom-dance classes, which come chock full of waltz, foxtrot, and country two-step moves guaranteed to melt the icy hearts of headmistresses the world over.
Drop in through the chimney for any of the dozens of scheduled classes that Social Dance Studio hosts weekly. This Terpsichorean temple also hawks a kaleidoscope of dance necessities, such as Comfort Brand dance shoes, official school apparel, dangling beaded earrings, and spare right feet.
Though Social Dance Studio offers some $8 tickets for dancers 55 and older, this Groupon still represents the best deal for most buyers.
