Nature has proved that dance is an effective way of attracting mates and restoring forgotten celebrities to the public eye. Strut your ballroom stuff, hop your funky hips, or practice the perfect pirouette with today's Groupon to Society Hill Dance Academy: $35 gets you one 45-minute private dance lesson for an individual or a couple, a $120 value. You can choose the style of dance you want to learn, including ballet, ballroom, hip-hop, and belly dance. Plus, this Groupon gives you a chance to practice your moves and socialize with fellow dancers at one of Society Hill's dance parties every Thursday at 9:15 p.m. at SHDA's Center City location, an additional $20 value for couples.
With today's deal, you'll get priceless individualized attention from SHDA's friendly and encouraging teachers. You don't have to worry about a group class moving too quickly or too slowly for your skill level, and you don't have to compete with the prima donna who's obviously taken ballet all her life. Get started on the basics to make the first dance at your wedding stunning, or let loose on the unsuspecting club crowds with your expertly honed hip-hop moves. Hit the barre for a ballet refresher, a fun and lovely way to build long, lean muscles. Never again awkwardly stand beside the cheese table at your sister's upcoming wedding; show off your hot date with a smoldering tango.
SHDA's gorgeous Center City studio is located in Society Hill's historic district. Complete with hardwood floors, exposed brick, and vibrant art on the walls, the warm studio feels more like a friend's posh flat than a dance academy. During the day, bay windows overlooking the cobblestone streets fill the space with natural light; at night, the twinkle of city lights makes the Center City studio a romantic party destination. The Thursday night parties are held at the Center City studio, but you can take your private lesson at either the Center City or Manayunk locations. Though all new students at SHDA are given a brief, complimentary lesson and assessment to determine their goals and skill level, today's deal gets you the same consultation, plus a full-blown private lesson and Thursday night dance party to show off your moves.
