Because the Groove Patrol has started to crack down on dance-floor criminals stealing other peoples' moves, the only motion you can safely bust is your own. Start practicing with today's Groupon: for $20, you get four belly-dance or Zumba classes (a $45 value) at World of Dances.
With more than a decade of danceperience under her limbs, owner Julie Buckeye has developed a strong habit of disseminating clear, easy-to-follow instructions to budding foot-on-floor artists. Students who choose to explore the lands of belly will learn to celebrate the power of undulation, siphoning that power into enhanced posture, endurance, and core-muscle strength. Though belly dancers' sensuous rolls, hip drops, and shoulder shimmies often appear effortless, they isolate core muscles to sculpt bodies into lean, serpentine shapes that are perfect for catching field mice or navigating gutters.
Students can zoom to Zumba classes to sip a fun, fitness-packed smoothie of Latin rhythms and easy-to-learn dance moves. Call the studio to learn more about the current schedule.
World of Dances
Helmed by Julie Buckeye, a globe trekker who has learned dozens of dances during her travels, the team of instructors at World of Dances teaches children and adults of all skill levels to shimmy with international flair and self-confidence. Julie approaches each of her classes with an enthusiasm for disparate cultures and a desire to help students feel great about their own lives, whether they're stretching toward the sun during yoga classes, undulating their hips during belly-dancing classes, or high-fiving themselves during hip-hop classes. Bouncing sun rays enter the World of Dances studio through floor-to-ceiling windows and join students in boogie routines, while the sprawling parking lot outside encourages cars to relax as they work on their suntans.
