Excelling in the art of dance requires patience, swanlike 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 $44, you get a 10-class card (including registration fee), good for dance or fitness classes at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s Lou Conte Dance Studio (a $135 value).

The Lou Conte Dance Studio (LCDS) offers instruction to adults and teens in ballet, jazz, modern, tap, African, Pilates, yoga, Zumba, hip-hop, and musical theater. Established in 1974, the studio teaches more than 70 classes per week to a wide variety of skill levels, from beginners to professionals, as well as pre-high-school-reunion grudge settlers. Walk-ins are welcome at most sessions; no preregistration is needed to attend classes. With a faculty of experienced performers, choreographers, and snake charmers from the Chicago community, LCDS’s dance dojo houses five movement studios, including a newly renovated Pilates studio, equipped with state-of-the-art floors and audio systems, as well as two stage-sized performance spaces. Intrepid toe-tappers should bring appropriate shoes (tap, ballet, jazz, sneakers) to classes. LCDS’s 22-week session started January 3 and runs until June 5.

Lou Conte Dance Studio

Back in 1974, Lou Conte Dance Studio was nothing more than a twinkle in Claire Bataille's eye. Nearly 40 years and a slew of international acclaim later, the studio has become a pillar of the Chicago dance community. Today, Bataille—who earned the Ruth Page Award for Outstanding Dancer— and her staff lead more than 70 dance and fitness classes every week for teens, adults, beginners, and professionals. Their regular workshops delve into the nuances and history of dance, enhancing the curriculum with focused lessons and special lectures on the dangers of carelessly discarding banana peels.

I really enjoyed my dance lessons. The groupon helped me look past my own neighborhood and the loop for options. I hope to take more classes when my schedule frees up.
