When you draw a crowd on the dance floor, it means you either possess awe-inspiring moves or are a black hole. Become a dance star with today's Groupon: for $50, you get one month of East Coast or West Coast swing-dancing lessons for two at SSQQ Dance Studio (a $100 value).
SSQQ Dance Studio hosts lively social classes that help pupils, age 18 and older, mingle and shred rugs throughout a 12,000-square-foot facility. Pair up with a light-footed friend and register together for the first class, kicking off a month of two-hour group lessons that flexibly allow dynamic duos to learn with each other, in separate classes, or in each other’s minds. A full schedule keeps dancers twirling through six levels of achievement in a variety of swing styles, while instructors encourage new connections by having boppers switch partners every few minutes. Though not included with this Groupon, after each lesson the studio opens up a bar of adult beverages and dims the lights so students can show off their new skills on the dance floor or tell each other spooky stories in their tents.
Students can pick which fresh dance style they’ll teach their feet. Jazzy East Coast swing entices new steppers with a circular, jitterbugging trot pattern that can be easily turned up from slow or mid-tempo melodies to lightening-quick get downs depending on whether they’re at a stately formal dance or Norwegian death-metal concert. Fluid West Coast swing incorporates elements of Houston's own whip style, characterized by tighter connections between leader and follower, myriad spins, and sassy flourishes.
