Before international dance studios, wannabe performers had to learn the bunny hop and ants-in-your-pants jig from back-alley choreographers. Master exotic, creature-free routines in a reputable space with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get eight classes at Twisted Dance Studios (up to a $72 value).
The passionate instructors at Twisted Dance school students of all ages and experience levels in a variety of world dance styles. The studio’s 60- to 90-minute classes range from beginner and intermediate belly dance to hip-hop to an African dance class that merges traditional and contemporary movements. Bodies preferring relaxing over romping can tune inward with a gentle yoga class, and twisters can try hoop to twirl hips and practice ring-tossing skills on other participants.
After class, dancers, prancers, and blitzens can flaunt their new skills in creative student dance troupes. The studio’s décor fits its eclectic teachings, with a 100-year-old brick wall adorned with statues of gods and goddesses from diverse religions and cultures. Check the schedule for times. Classes are limited to 20 participants, so call ahead or send a dancing bellygram to reserve a spot.
