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: for $35, you get six weeks of group dance lessons for two at 2 Left Feet Dance Studio (an $80 value), with locations in Akron, Richfield, and Stow.
Experienced ballroom danseuse Pam Burton of 2 Left Feet Dance Studio has been teaching feet how to gracefully step in time for more than 20 years. Throughout the fun and inclusive six-week course, dancing duos participate in weekly, one-hour sessions in which they learn a variety of ballroom dances and debate the wastefulness of architecting ball-shaped rooms. Acquiring the skills to tango, trot, and waltz with elegance bestows couples with the ability to bust graceful moves at upcoming weddings or parties. Burton keeps lessons casual, with most fledgling twirlers donning jeans, low-heel shoes, and denim top hats.
2 Left Feet Dance Studio
Twenty-two years ago, Pam Burton counted herself as part of the population of people with two left feet. She struggled through every move during ballroom-dance classes and felt there must be another way to learn the moves. Not being the type of person to wait around for others to take the reins, she decided to reinvent ballroom-dance lessons so everyone—including that two-left-feet group—could easily understand how their feet were supposed to move.
The casual atmosphere inside 2 Left Feet Dance Studio finds students of all experience levels working through dance steps in a group, semi-private, or private setting. Once a month, people can test their newly acquired skills during a ballroom dance with pizza, pop, and a half-hour lesson.
