Atop the maplewood floors of Solão Fitness & Dance Studio, whose samba sessions have been featured in TimeOut Chicago, patrons mirror expert instructors in global dance styles and shimmy-infused cardio workouts in a schedule of more than 35 dance and fitness classes. In 60- to 75-minute sessions, guests of all ages and experience levels burn calories while following intuitive choreography in a supportive group environment.
Students can carve firmer cores with the piloxing class’ medley of Pilates and boxing maneuvers, enhance strength and limberness in yoga, or practice the acrobatic kicks of capoeira, an African-Brazilian martial art. For synth-happy hops, the Totally Awesome ’80s cardio workout stages aerobic dance routines to the music of foot-moving movies including Flashdance and Footloose, encouraging students to don leg warmers and attempt spins while shouldering a boom box.
Air conditioning keeps the studio cool as visitors perfect their gyrations, and a lounge area complete with a refreshment bar fosters postworkout rejuvenation more effectively than bathing in a tub of Gatorade.
Solao Fitness & Dance Studio
Featured in TimeOut Chicago, Solão Fitness distinguishes itself by hosting nearly 25 different dance-workout classes seven days a week. In naturally lit rooms with glossy maple floors, clients swivel hips to Cardio Samba one day and groove to Hip Hop Body Rock the next. A lounge area and refreshment bar allows Solão's terpsichorean community to hang out before and after class to socialize, decompress, and draw hearts on textbooks.
