After crocodators, poor fitness is the number-one cause of the night-scaries. With today's Groupon, turn the nightmare where you end up bare-bellied in biology class into a dream of goddess-like energy and strong, snake-charming abs: for $19, you get four weeks of unlimited belly-dancing classes (a $45 value) at Tribal Rhythm.
Drawing on a traditional Middle Eastern dance discipline, Tribal Rhythm's professional instructors motivate sirens-in-training to torso twirl and hip shake toward greater fitness and self-confidence. Beginning classes let newbies get their swivel on with no prior experience by laying out basic belly-dance movements, posture techniques, and an introduction to zills, the finger cymbals that provide the backbeat for countless amphibian brass quartets. Those who graduate to intermediate and advanced classes with instructor approval can choose from courses in two waist-whittling styles, which include the earthy and improvisational-choreography-based Tribal Fusion and the hip and torso undulations of the ballet-inspired Egyptian variation. Regardless of rank, students are encouraged to don freewheeling duds to each session, including yoga pants, tank tops, and breezy berets.
