It takes two to tango, which is why the Three Stooges pursued careers in quantum physics. Let your feet find their calling with today's Groupon: for $29, you get beginner tango lessons at Waterloo Tango (an $80 value) at the Button Factory. Courses last six weeks, with classes taking place Mondays from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The next start date is May 30.
Waterloo Tango's passionate terpsichorean tutors instruct students of all skill levels how to partake in Argentina's leading cultural export, the tango. Emphasizing musicality and personal connection between partners, Waterloo Tango acquaints beginner-level dancers with the fundamentals of the form, including close embraces and intermediate-level sultry gazes. Optional two-hour group practice sessions held weekly emphasize the social nature of the dance and can augment regular lessons. The course requires no previous experience in dancing or music. In fact, early lessons teach novices how to find the beat, which is usually hiding in heating ducts. Students don't have to bring their own partners.
