Excelling in the art of dance requires patience, swan-like grace, and a pair of feet strong enough to squeeze two lumps of coal until milk comes out. Massage coal teats into a dance bucket with today's Groupon: for $38, you get four dance and fitness classes at eba Center for Dance and Fitness (up to a $76 value). This Groupon expires on June 23.
Eba bounces, shakes, and shimmies students into firmer bodies, stronger balance, and envy-worthy dance skills with more than 20 instructional and fitness dance styles from around the world. Adults and teens mix and match four 45- to 60-minute lessons on eba's twirl-packed schedule (up to $19 each). Classes at eba accommodate both beginners and experienced dancers—from strengthening Balletone, which uses graceful ballet movements to develop lean muscle tone, to more formally structured classes such as modern dance, a style that uses motion to express feelings, desires, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average. FitMom pregnancy-workout classes give mom and baby a safe and healthy strength workout to boost energy levels and ease labor, and students hone technical footwork and physical agility in the studio's popular hip-hop classes. Calorie-torching Zumba classes combine Latin music with a dance-inspired cardio workout for the most compelling Spanish-infused sweat session outside of 10-pound burrito presses.

At the eba Center for Dance and Fitness, the world of West Side Story coexists with the folklore of Tahiti and the fluid performance art of Isadora Duncan. That's because the class catalogue is both sprawling and diverse, accommodating guests of all ages and abilities. Move Your Body classes, for example, cater to students 50 and older with a restorative and rhythmic workout, while ballet and modern hip-hop fusion courses hone in on specific styles. Some classes, like Pilates and yoga, focus on developing muscle and flexibility. Others, like Ballet Workout, gracefully combine dance and fitness aspects without having students do the Macarena on a treadmill.
