Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Transmit tidings with twinkling toes thanks to today’s Groupon: for $30, new students get three weeks of beginner dance class and two Friday night workshops (a $60 value) at the Washington Dance Club. Both singles and partners are welcome.
Washington Dance Club brings together the skilled instruction and the friendly groups necessary to discover an innate love of happy-footing, all within the Astaire-worthy confines of two roomy, renovated 1930s ballrooms. Whether you choose to master the stately sweep of waltz, the exhilarating spins of West Coast swing, or the shimmying hips of salsa, your beginner class will introduce you to the dance's fundamental movements and style. Workshops help you refine the basic leading, following, and tripping techniques of social ballroom dancing. Along with being fun, social exercise, Washington Dance Club's infusion of foxtrot, rumba, cha-cha, and more gives hoofers better dance floor go-to's so that they don't have to keep falling back on the Half-Hearted Robot or the Epileptic Seizure. Consult the class calendar for each month's high-stepping itinerary.
Washington Dance Club
Since 1987, the national championship dancers at Washington Dance Club have been steadily whittling away at an excess of left feet with their social and competitive dance classes. Students cut rugs of all stripes in the historic Avalon Ballroom, twirling through ballroom, Latin, and swing sessions atop the 1930s ballroom's 3,000-square-foot sprung-maple dance floor. The team of instructors work with beginners, professionals, and top-hat wearing skeletons looking to revamp their image in private and group lessons, workshops, and weekly dance parties.
