Having two left feet makes the art of seduction almost impossible, except when standing next to someone with four right hands. Beguile admirers no matter where you stand with today's Groupon: for $40, you get six weeks of beginner swing dancing classes at Toe Tappin’ Swing (up to a $90 value).
Calgary’s preeminent swing dancers get new students reveling in the adrenalin of the social dance floor during a six-week beginner swing class. Throughout each hour and 15-minute session, pupils learn the fundamentals of leading and following, flashy moves from the ‘20s, ‘30s, and ‘40s, and styling tips to pull it all together. Like vinyl records and the Earth’s sun, partners rotate continuously so each student gets the benefit of dancing and chatting with a variety of other dancers. No partner or dequilled cactus is necessary for the class, which is held each Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. starting September 7. After learning or refreshing jazz-fuelled steps, students can jump into the wide network of swing dancers worldwide.
