Like Morse code, dance has proven to be an effective method of communicating messages such as "SOS" or "The neighborhood penny-farthing has been spirited away." Improve bodily communication skills with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get eight dance classes, which begin on August 15, at University Dance Project (an $85 value). Groupon holders must take two classes per week for four consecutive weeks.
The nonprofit University Dance Project channels the motion-oriented minds of The University of Arizona School of Dance by employing the school's students to instruct a new generation of dancers. During eight classes, seasoned softshoers or beginning balleteers ages 5 and older can build the swan-like skills of confidence, grace, balance, and victory. Different levels exist for most styles, allowing dancers to build upon lessons learned and challenge themselves among a group of supportive, equally matched peers. Students unleash energy in hip-hop, learn stylized choreography in jazz, and gain the flexibility of a yogic rubber band in tumbling. University Dance Project urges all dancers to take at least one ballet or technique class to lay a strong foundation upon which to build future footwork knowledge.
