Without dance, people could only hum along to "Macarena," and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Let movements speak with this Groupon.

Reserve a spot on Wednesday–Saturday, February 13–16, between noon and 8:30 p.m., or on Sunday, February 17, between 4 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. for a private dance lesson for two at Chief O'Neill's. There, experienced Sway Dance instructors stand ready to walk you and a partner through selections from their vast repertoire of tango variations.
After lessons, the two of you can retreat to Chief O'Neill's dining room to share a hearty appetizer—such as steak crostini with blue-cheese sauce, or spinach, artichoke, and goat-cheese fondue with parmesan pita chips—and swirl glasses of wine. Founded by All-Ireland musicians Brendan and Siobhan McKinney, and named after renowned Irish musicologist and former Chicago chief of police, Francis O'Neill, the pub channels the romance of the Emerald Isle through its dark hardwood accents and stained-glass family crests.
There are a variety of reasons someone might take dance lessons—to bust eye-catching moves at a nightclub, to impress a paramour with the sensual steps of tango, or perhaps to simply avoid awkwardness at a company formal. In an exciting and joy-filled environment, the upbeat certified instructors at Sway Dance possess the power to teach students how to achieve any of these goals. Students of all experience levels thrive in both private lessons and communal group classes focused on the sultry techniques of salsa and bachata, the social dances of swing and foxtrot, and the formal steps of waltz and tango. The instructors also help couples prepare for their weddings by helping them personalize and polish their first dance together and editing songs down to the right length and tempo.
