Recent studies show that people who dance tend to possess above-average strength, endurance, and flexibility, as well as a significantly lower risk of getting served. Hone this vital skill with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get one enrollment in a kids' summer camp or an eight-week class at Syracuse Dance Academy in Syracuse (an $80 value).
Syracuse Dance Academy's experienced instructors lead budding body movers of all skill levels through a wide variety of dance styles that emphasize learning technique instead of choreography. Curious feet can enroll in a multiday camp, running July 12–14 (with a second proposed schedule of July 19–21, dependent upon interest and availability), where they will traverse a smorgasbord of teachings, including dance, tumbling, and cheering. Freshly toned groove muscles can find more time to expand during an eight-week class, spanning July 5– August 22. Little ones can master the plié during introductory classic-ballet courses, and more experienced dancers can impress flattened cardboard boxes with techniques learned in hip-hop lessons. The registration fee is waived for Groupon holders, and all music and costumes are age-appropriate, assuaging mothers' fears that their children will be gussied up like socialites attending the opera.
