Without dance, people could only hum along to “Macarena,” and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Let movements speak with today’s Groupon to The Dancing Duo. Choose from the following options:
- For $25, you get a one-hour private dance lesson for an individual or couple (a $50 value).
- For $25, you get a six-week beginner’s swing-dance class for one (a $50 value).
- For $45, you get a six-week beginner’s swing-dance class for two (a $100 value).
Group classes take place on Monday evenings at 8 p.m., and the first beginner’s swing-dance class begins on Monday, January 9. Private lessons commence on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and under certain circumstances, Fridays and Saturdays by appointment; all private lessons are scheduled by phone.
The Dancing Duo’s husband-wife team of toe-tapping instructors leads students through the beginning steps of swing, ballroom, and Latin dance styles in group classes and private meetings. Private dance lessons allow students to study the elegant movements of ballroom dancing, the fast-paced techniques of swing, or the sultry hip gestures of Latin dancing free from the eyes of other clients or the comments of celebrity judges. Fledgling shimmiers learn the steps of east coast swing and hit the dance floor swiveling with ‘50s-era wraps, spins, kicks, and musical numbers describing past summer romances during weekly one-hour classes.
