When you draw a crowd on the dance floor, it means you either possess awe-inspiring moves or are a black hole. Become a dance star with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get four weeks of Tuesday-night swing-dance lessons at Uptown Swing (up to a $40 value).
Uptown Swing guides students in the fine art of spotlight stealing with invigorating group lessons in a large, professional studio. Founder Peter Strom and his team of dedicated instructors guide up to 50 students in progressive classes while unveiling movements and techniques proven to astonish opponents during hopscotch showdowns. An equal number of designated leaders and followers develop skills together during 60-minute sessions, practicing steps such as the eight-count lindy hop, charleston patterns, and swingout variations. During sessions with Peter, students witness the expertise he used to win the classic division of the American Lindy Hop Championships in 2000, and sessions with Stacia, Jeremy, and Naomi teach dancers how to acquire their own trophies without setting off laser security beams.
