Even if you do make good on your New Year’s resolution to travel back in time and avert World War II, you’ll still need something to do there when you get bored. Today’s Groupon will teach you to swing splendid danceful swings with three Monday-night swing-dancing classes at Charm City Swing for $10 (a $30 value). A syncopated step and triple-step at Charm City is the best reason to go out on a Monday night, according to Baltimore Magazine. No partner is necessary, so you can leave that clumsy dance-golem you created at home.
The artists at Ice Lab don't work with paint, canvases, or stencils. Instead, they rely on chisels, chainsaws, and 3-D mapping technology to transform huge chunks of ice into frozen masterpieces—masterpieces that disappear from existence within a few hours of their completion. As a professional sculpting service, Ice Lab puts a frosty twist on get-togethers by creating displays for food, drinks, and other party favors. Customers can rest assured that the ice used for their sculptures are clean: Ice Lab uses a five-stage, reverse-osmosis filtering process, making sure each drop is pure and has a flawless permanent record.

Tahirah Bowrey—the owner and head dancer of Creative Impulse Dance Studio—helms a team of five talented instructors that teach fleet-footed charges to step, swivel, and sway in styles ranging from hip-hop to ballet. Students of all ages match their footwork to classical refrains or pulsing, bass-heavy beats in three class levels, suited to beginner through advanced coryphées. Adults tone their bodies’ contours and learn to outmaneuver calories in sensual, cardio-infused styles such as floor- and pole dancing, and young children prepare to dazzle discerning hopscotch judges with pirouettes perfected in ballet class. Instructors hold lessons in a spacious hardwood studio flooded with natural light from tall windows and echoing with the sounds of toes tapping in unison.
The slim 20-foot storefront of Silhouettes for Women may look unassuming, but it opens to a 5,000-square-foot facility with two group fitness studios, private changing rooms, and a private weighing area. In addition to women-only fitness classes, personal training, and cardio equipment, the gym also offers nutritional counseling from certified weight-management consultants.
