Recent studies show that people who dance tend to possess above-average strength, endurance, flexibility, and dream-symbolism comprehension. Hone this vital skill with today’s Groupon: for $25, you'll get a 10-class punch card (a $150 value), which includes the registration fee (a $20 value), at Allana's Academy of Dance. If you want to continue after the 10 classes, you'll receive 25% off your first month of enrollment (must enroll within 30 days of final punch). The Littleton footwork factory took top honors from Denver's A-List CityVoters in 2009.
Allana Risenhoover has been dancing for more than 20 years and opened her first dance studio in her parents' basement at the age of 16. Years later, her namesake academy started holding classes in January of 2009. With a choreographing background that includes high-school pom squads, minor-league dancers, and cheerleaders, Miss Allana is a true maestro of synchronized movement. She and her skilled staff of expert instructors offer lessons for any skill level or age in a variety of disciplines including hip hop, pop and lock, and breakdance. Adult classes also include ballet, ballet technique, contemporary, jazz and funk, lyrical, tap, and salsa (with or without a partner). The class schedule is always being updated with new additions.

- Very classy and Allana's a great instructor. She knows her stuff and gives everyone personal attention to their individual needs. – Mark L., CityVoter
- She is enthusiastic about her studio, and offers a wide range of dance classes, including classes that most dance studios do not offer. I know her to always be happy and smiling and totally committed to her dancing. She is awesome. – Scott S., CityVoter
