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 to Studio 3 Performing Arts Center’s Dexter location. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get four kids dance classes lasting 45–60 minutes, to be taken over one month (up to a $50 value).

Studio 3 Performing Arts Center’s experienced instructors teach an extensive schedule of ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, and modern classes for both adults and kids. Groups of eight tutu-wearing tots ages 2 and older can turn chaînés across the studio during Pre Ballet, and disciples of Terpsichore aged 10 and up can learn to pirouette en pointe or tap out love sonnets in Morse code in 13-student advanced classes. Hip-hop, lyrical, and modern classes teach students to contort limbs in more contemporary combinations, and cheer and pom classes drill spirited movements to encourage underperforming VW Beetles in high-stakes drag races. Alternatively, students older than 18 can attend adult classes in tap, ballet, and hip-hop; shift hips to Latin rhythms in Zumba; or stretch and strengthen their bodies in Pilates.
Studio 3 Performing Arts Center
One of three devoted dancers who founded Studio 3 Performing Arts Center, Megan Stanley told the Dexter Patch that she wanted a venue where "girls or guys of any skill level feel they can have a place to dance." Today, the center has broadened her dream by teaching visitors how to become a triple threat onstage. Lessons in music, dance, and theater place its students—some as young as two years—on the road to self-expression, while an atmosphere of fun and acceptance keeps them practicing.
The owners teach most of the classes themselves, building a community of students and parents that trust their expertise and attend regular recitals. This convivial spirit carries over to theater performances, where audience participation and Samuel Beckett's famous call-and-response cheers ensure everyone's involvement. Classes welcome all-comers to try their hand at intuitive cardio workouts and competitive choreography alike, the latter of which has led the studio's crew to a Best in Studio award at the 2012 JUMP dance convention.
