Like defusing a bomb, a well-executed dance routine requires concentration, skill, and a nervous partner who questions your every move before unexpectedly jumping out of a window. Blow onlookers away with explosive dance moves thanks to today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $69 worth of dance classes or social event admission at Sugar Swing Dance Club, meeting at Orange Hall and McKernan Community Hall.
Sugar Swing Dance Club’s vivacious instructors show students of all ages the fundamentals of swing, African, and jazz dances in a welcoming, energetic setting. Dancing is as social as it is beneficial to lead-footed cardiovascular systems, so students may prefer to stick with one technique and increase their friend count by an order of magnitude. Since the covered dance styles are related to one another, students are free to mix and match classes and forms. The current schedule includes sets of introductory level 1A swing classes ($69 for a four week class), as well as a heady taste of dances grandmothers found invaluable for scandalizing their neighbours, including the Balboa and the Charleston. When it’s time to take new moves out of the lab and into the field, Sugar Swing’s Saturday-night, all-ages socials ($8–$12 admission) make for suspiciously happy gatherings.
The value of this Groupon may be used to upgrade to more complex classes.
