A dance class can teach anyone to move with grace through bee attacks, while getting served in front of a blind date, or during mega-prom. Step up to the ballroom with today's deal: for $35, you get an introductory dance package (a $60 value) at Strictly Ballroom Dance Studio on Lewis Avenue. Lone rangers and dance-happy couples alike can use this package.
Strictly Ballroom's staff of friendly, experienced instructors school steppers of all skill levels in the art of ballroom dance. The introductory dance package offers three half-hour one-on-one lessons, one group lesson with a handful of couples, and one studio party where newly belessoned ballroom dancers can freestyle without fear of the teacher's eye's judicious gavel. Within the elegant, mirrored confines of Strictly Ballroom's gleaming hardwood dance floor, you'll have plenty of room to acquire the confidence and grace of a bipedal swan, and plenty of chairs and tables from which to observe other swanabees. Afterward, in your shoe bin, your shoes will have stories to share with the high-heeled alligator-skin brogues you haven’t worn since last year’s home fumigation.
Waltzes are common at weddings and formal parties. Salsa, swing, and country western dance might be more common in gleefully rowdy bars. Even people who have mastered all of those can still practice the constant motion of merengue or the easy sway of the fox trot. The instructors at Strictly Ballroom have put in the years necessary to master all of these styles, allowing them to match patrons with the steps they'll enjoy most. The gleaming hardwood floors of the school's event center make it an ideal venue for dance parties, which let students practice their new moves together.
