From tap dance to muay thai kickboxing, classes at Paganini Dance Fitness Martial Arts impart movement skills that can be used to get fit or show off. In between classes, students lounge at the Samba Café, where coffee and flat-screen TVs help them recharge. Once sufficiently fueled up, they're back in Paganini's studios, where instructors teach kids and adults how to twirl, tap, step, punch, kick, or lift weights. Students can also learn how to perform the dance-influenced Brazilian martial art of capoeira or the martial arts–influenced dance of full-contact do-si-do.

Though competitive cheerleading gym Premier All-Stars of NJ sets its sights firmly on championships, glory is but a goal that compels its students to learn the value of hard work and sportsmanship. The long-view approach clearly pays off, as the gym has held numerous National and Grand Championship Titles as well as earning superlatives such as Best Jump Sequence and Best Audience Participation. While the cheerleaders work toward the next shiny medal to wear around their necks or trade for magic beans, they learn teamwork and social skills in addition to the physical traits of coordination and bodily awareness.

As baseball season draws to an end, and the Newark Bears empty their lockers, specters hiding in the mist materialize to transform Riverfront ballpark into the Stadium of Screams. Daring explorers of the unexplained can traverse through the seasonally haunted attractions, which include haunted locker rooms, where undead actors lie in wait, ready to terrify unsuspecting visitors, and bubbling cauldrons brewing viscous vats of Gatorade. Just beyond the cursed confines, shrieks of terror become shrieks of glee at the Stadium of Screams Fun Zone. Visitors can participate in a free nightly treasure hunt, or spend up to $1 on prize-riddled amusement park games. Costumed actors greet guests for photos and stage fear tastings from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and again from 11 p.m. to midnight. Although not included in the price of this Groupon, a hayride ($5) is available to tote guests around the baseball field, granting sublime views of the night sky and an eerily moonlit home plate.

Students in beginner to advanced classes at the Cultural Center for Language Studies learn to converse casually in Spanish, Portuguese, or English. Guided by an experienced and fluent teaching staff, they'll practice their chosen tongue in real-life contexts, deciphering commercials, documentaries, and the price lists of black-market piñata distributors. Opt for an intensive weekend course that teaches the rudiments of grammar in two three-hour sessions, or spread your six hours over four 1.5-hour weekday classes. Grouponers who continue courses beyond their six hours will need to buy their textbooks and stand on their head while they count to 10 in Klingon.

See the arch-nemesis Generals try to keep up as the Harlem hardwood sorcerers evade gravity’s oppressive clutches and court clairvoyants distribute unassailable alley-oops. Youngsters can learn about the benefits of teamwork while laughing along with the jovial jocks as they perform classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti.
