Dance, like road trips and family arguments, is always better when set to music. Add rhythm to self-expression with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a seven-week summer session at Dance Center of LaGrange on South LaGrange Road near 47th Street (a $115 value). The summer session takes place June 13–July 30 and is for individuals ages 2.5 and older. This Groupon includes the $25 registration fee; clients who wish to sign up for classes beyond those included in this Groupon will need to pay the $25.
Bursting with two fully equipped dance studios and a philosophy of noncompetitive learning, Dance Center of LaGrange brings skilled teachers and a miscellany of dance types to the feet of dancers both young and old. Tykes can twirl toward the 45–60 minute summer-session classes to introduce tentative toes to preballet and creative movement (ages 3–4), learning new moves and gaining confidence while composing a rhythmic symphony with their 10-toed orchestra. The Storycise class (ages 3–5) combines storytelling and exercise to produce a hybrid fitness adventure filled with heart-pumping moves and poses that spell entire novel chapters. Teens can hit up the modern/jazz class for a medley of Broadway-style shimmying, and grown-up steppers can twist into adult tap, lacing up specialty shoes to conquer rapid routines and drum out grocery lists onto the hardwood floor.
