Dancing is the second-best way to let the body do the talking, just short of being born with a secondary bellybutton mouth. Elegantly express yourself with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-week dance-class package for one person or for a couple together at A Step to Gold International Ballroom (a $125 value). The package includes the following:

A Step to Gold International Ballroom’s seasoned instructors turn left-feet-plagued paired or solo students into ballroom barons with dance classes covering a host of disciplines. Private lessons encourage pupils ranging from beginners to the most advanced Astaires to pepper their teachers with questions, learn in a welcoming environment, and finally look judgmental dashboard hula dancers in the eye. In group classes, students further hone their hip-shaking among others with similar levels of experience. A practice mixer caps off the week, letting newly deft dancers mingle and make friends as they cha-cha with classmates, tango with teachers, and polish routines to ace the talent portion of the state bar exam.

She has since seasoned her artistry with over 29 years of experience in ballroom and Latin styles, participating in international competitions and becoming a certified championship judge. Today, the former ballerina shares her love of dance with her pupils at her studio A Step to Gold International Ballroom. She welcomes tentative and experienced dancers alike, teaching them fancy footwork to debut at an upcoming party or wedding. Along with a full staff of professional dance instructors, she whisks students to their feet to execute dozens of styles including the beat-driven cha-cha, passionate tango, and elegant Viennese waltz. In addition to technique-centered classes, she offers dance-inspired workouts such as Zumba, which fuses Latin music with body-sculpting dance moves.
