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 $95, you get three private lessons at The Ballroom Pro, with locations in Chanhassen, Edina, St. Louis Park, and St. Paul (a $270 value).
Experienced dance coach, competitor, and choreographer Charlie Hardcastle trains dancers of all abilities in a bevy of ballroom styles. During three 45-minute classes, Hardcastle homes in on individual goals and abilities, customizing rug-slicing routines for novices, experts, and modest experts pretending to be novices. The studio welcomes children and adults individually or in couples to trot through a variety of techniques inspired by traditional American and Latin styles.
Learn ballroom basics or how to tap out secret messages in 3/4 time during one-on-one waltzing lessons. The less traditional style of theater arts produces expressive, eye-dazzling results by incorporating physicality, lifts, tricks, and interpretive moves. Each lesson is tailored to students' needs, whether they aspire to prepare for wedding revelry or jazz up morning commutes with moonwalking. Dancers can schedule classes on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and should dress in nice workout clothing or semi-dress attire. Professional ballroom shoes are preferred but not required.
