Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Transmit tidings with twinkling toes thanks to today’s Groupon: for $37, you get four dance classes and two dance parties (a $75 value) at The Dance Place, located in the center of downtown Lexington's cultural and entertainment district.
Lexington's only Latin-dance studio, The Dance Place makes its spicy steps and traditional ballroom styles fun and accessible for all skill levels. Latin 101 introduces beginners to the energetic, sensual footwork of merengue, salsa, bachata, and cha cha. The Ballroom 101 course, meanwhile, focuses on the basics of the waltz, foxtrot, and the tango. Busting a move you've never busted before—be it a contemporary hip-shimmy, stately waltz, or a well-coordinated move to a nicer part of town, away from that mouthy opossum that keeps opening your mail—is an exhilarating way to get exercise, learn a new skill, and meet new and graceful friends. Classes start the week of January 16.
Both schools of dance come together to foot-fraternize during dance parties such as the Streetlight Ballroom, a mix of ballroom and Latin dancing. The Salsa Party brings beginners up to speed on the high-energy hoofing and unresolved cliffhangers from previous gatherings with a brief introductory lesson and then sets them loose to dip their toe nachos into the fiery dance floor. Dancers can bring a partner or make one at both the classes and dance parties. See the website for a full schedule and pricing.
