Think of all the moments in life where being an excellent dancer could totally open doors for you. If only you had the skills taught at Intrigue Dance, you could show them off in a variety of social contexts to your great benefit:
- Cutting in line at the amusement park normally garners scowls, but cutting in line while performing ballet pirouettes generates applause.
- At a job interview, your resume and cover letter make great lyrics to a song and jazz dance routine (punctuated with white-gloved jazz hands) that will surely get you hired.
- When getting mugged, a Beyoncé-inspired hip-hop dance routine actually doubles as a defense tactic: your bizarrely hypnotic pelvic motions entrance muggers and your steely hair serves as a mace-whip.
There’s so much cool stuff you’re going to be able to do, but first you have to learn the moves. Good thing today’s Groupon lets you do that for 54% off.

Three Yelpers give Intrigue Dance an average 4.5 stars—one reviewer loves it so much that she gave it a perfect five stars twice. Here’s they have to say: > * I love the location of this studio! I came to check out the hip hop class and got an awesome workout… It was a very small class with only 2 of us plus the instructor which was nice. Definitely more one on one attention and the class moves at a faster pace with less students. – Linda N. > * What a great studio! Great location at Roosevelt & Michigan not too far from the Orange, Red & Green line trains…Studio space is a good [sic] and sound system was good as well. I took the beginner/intermediate ballet class with Pia (the owner who is so friendly!) and there were only 2 other people in the class. Pia gave lots of personal attention and I had a GREAT workout in the hour long class. I will definitely go back and have been telling my dancer friends about the studio as well! – Robyn T. > * I will definitely be back. They have everything from ballet, tap, jazz to cardio striptease! Great way to try a variety of dance. (Also, have children’s classes.) – Jen M.
Intrigue Dance and Performing Arts Center
As a child, Pia Hamilton danced as Min on the children’s TV show Barney and Friends. Nowadays, she continues to showcase her love of dance at Intrigue Dance and Performing Arts Center, an all-ages studio she co-owns with her husband, actor Dustin Hamilton. The camera-seasoned duo has opened a spacious new facility that houses three dance studios, offering classes such as ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop. They also host musical-theater classes that impart genre-specific dance tips, such as never to dance directly in front of Annie. They accommodate multiple skill levels, introducing both kids and adults to the world of dance.
