Like three-legged races held on iced-up luge tracks, dancing can build enthusiasm, muscles and self-confidence all at once. Today’s Groupon emboldens the mind, body, and the toenails’ natural rhythm reserves: for $35, you get five fitness-centered dance classes from BeMoved at Lou Conte Dance Studio](http://www.hubbardstreetdance.com/lcds_home.asp), located in the West Loop (a $75 value). Classes are available Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and each class lasts one hour.
BeMoved offers Chicagoans the chance to be thoroughly schooled in the art of therapeutic choreography. The classes’ exercise-heavy curriculum was designed by Sherry Zunker, an accomplished instructor and dancer who was recently featured in Dance Magazine. Some sessions showcase swing, some focus on sensual salsa, and others emulate dance moves of the roaring ‘20s without requiring everyone to bring a barrel of moonshine. The entire dedicated, floor-conquering BeMoved staff is intent on helping people discover how to use dance as a lifelong means to physical fitness and emotional tranquility so that they can give up ineffective health fads such as riding a lawnmower in a half-pipe.
- Most dance teachers dream of sending their students into careers with prominent companies. Sherry Zunker dreams of keeping them dancing long after the limitations of age and injury end their performing careers. – [Lynn Colburn Shapiro, Dance Magazine]
