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 $25, you get 10 group dance classes at The Dance Shack (up to a $129 value). Your Groupon also includes an individual introductory session.
The Dance Shack hosts classes in nearly every type of Latin, swing, and ballroom dance style imaginable, inviting both singles and couples to learn and hone new techniques in a variety of daily group sessions. Pas de deux ingenues can mix up 10 sessions to learn a new style each class, or take repeat classes to perfect merengue or salsa steps. Pay homage to the Prohibition era by relearning the foxtrot, or loosen limbs with a weekly swing class. The friendly and engaging instructors at The Dance Shack are well versed in all manner of rhythm-propelled movement, so consult the class schedule to find the class or style that most inspires movement in your corporeal form.
The Dance Shack
The student walks into the packed studio, decked out for a night on the town. He’s nervous, thinking that perhaps one salsa class wasn’t enough to prepare him for the social setting. But once the Latin beats start to fill the space, the steps come back to him. He grabs a partner’s hand, and they hit the floor. Such is the scene at one of The Dance Shack’s in-house dance parties, where Shackers try out the skills they have learned in group or private lessons within the studio’s familiar confines before they hit the club.
