What You'll Get
Although it only takes two to tango, it takes an entire dance studio to ward off gangs of square-dancing street toughs. Hone your defense mechanisms with today’s Groupon to Tap-a-holic. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get a one-hour Intro to Tap workshop (a $20 value).
- For $35, you a four-lesson Absolute Beginner tap course (an $80 value).
Tap-a-holic’s Hillary Ayn Ryan, winner of Backstage’s L.A. Readers’ Choice Award for Favorite Dance Instructor, initiaties rug-cutting neophytes in the art of Broadway-style tap. During an Intro to Tap workshop, students get a taste of percussive footwork as they practice basic steps and kiss their shoes’ metallic plates. Alternatively, the Absolute Beginner course starts anew with each month’s schedule, and stretchs across four weeks as pupils learn to shuffle-ball-change. The 60-minute sessions build foundational skills and teach steps that stitch together into a dance by the end of the course. Pupils bring their own tap shoes, rent a pair for $3, or tie hammers to their feet for rhythmic clacking.
