Groupon: Ten balboa or blues dance classes with LSDS
“While museologists expertly preserve artefacts in sealed containers and climate-controlled rooms, other pieces of history are kept alive in jumping heels and rolling hips. Enjoy a blast from the past with today’s Groupon: £26 for ten blues dance classes at London Swing Dance Society.
Bringing a little American history to full-bodied life, London Swing Dance Society inspirits many a vintage dance style including the sultry rhythms of the blues. The society first stretched its legs in 1986 and has since developed a busy calendar of dance events, making ample space for beginners to take the stage. Private lessons are also taught by the experienced instructors, helping nervous dancers turn the jitters into the crowd-pleasing jitterbug.
Beginners can sashay along to the course of ten classes, lasting one hour each and exhibiting an informal teaching style. Learning the smooth moves of the blues, students will glide across the room as they shimmy their way to becoming confident dancefloor shakers. No partner is required, as all students take a turn with different partners or can go it alone freestyle. ”
