Learning to dance properly is the best way to avoid being seen in public with the person dancing clumsily in your bedroom mirror. For $60, today's deal saves you from future internal self-deprecating jokes with 10 dance classes (a $130 value) from Intrigue Dance and Performing Arts Center, located a few blocks off the Roosevelt El stop in the South Loop. This Groupon may also be used for two months of kids' classes (one class per week, a $160 value).
Intrigue Dance's variety of dance styles for adults will happify even the most seasonally affected feet. Salsa dancing communicates with would-be Latin lovers in a language that doesn't involve pluperfect subjunctives, while a tap-dancing class allows for an exquisite revenge on party-hearty downstairs neighbors. If ballet, jazz, hip hop, and others don't leave you sufficiently breathless, try a workout class such as Pilates, stretch and strength, or cardio striptease. Classes are offered at all levels, from novice (no experience) to advanced (five years or more). Check out Intrigue's schedule for dance-class descriptions and times, many of which stretch into the work-friendly hours of 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
The friendly instructors at Intrigue Dance are experienced and patient, and will help you overcome the stifling force of gravity and self-consciousness via one-on-one attention. Use today's Groupon to gear up for the physical-challenge portion of next week's trivia night.
Once you redeem your Groupon, you must use all 10 dance classes within a three-month period.
- Intrigue is a gem of a dance center. My daughter has been taking lessons for two years and she loves it. Classes tend to be small and the instructors very attentive, which is exactly what I was looking for after looking at other dance schools in the south loop area. At the recital last spring I was really impressed at how far the students had come in such a short amount of time. – Susan C., Groupon Discussion Board
- 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., Yelp
- 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., Yelp
